How do people manage a busy personal life along with a job? This week was a killer due to too much personal stuff on my part. I cannot do all these things and manage to work a 60 hour week.
In addition to the death in the family, I had a small dinner party, and a doctor’s appointment. All these ate into the time I usually give to work. So, the work suffered. But work had some major hurdles in addition to my regularly scheduled program. I had three major meetings at school, one from 4 to 7 on Thursday. We had a field trip and an assembly to add more fun to the scheduling. Then I’m using a prep period to coach two boys for a competition in another week. One of the guys decided it was too much and got sick and missed today. The girl I was counting on to take pictures and get a page done in yearbook has been out sick all week. The multimedia class is learning how to use Windows Movie Maker, which is an unknown quantity to me so I am learning right along with them.
So, how do people have time for a personal life? I sure don’t, especially not during the week. Can we plan those extra things for the weekend? Oh, wait, I want to do laundry, grocery shopping, and cooking on those two days.
