So I’m sitting at the office right now, filling in for my mom. We both work for the same apartment rental complex. I clean vacant apartments (as well as have clients outside the complex) and my mom is the office manager. Quitting my part-time retail job last winter (January of this year) was a hard decision. However the company I worked for wasn’t as flexible as I needed it to be and when my hubby got laid off AGAIN last summer and started working weird shifts through a temp agency, retail would not be good right now.
My mom is moving to Arizona next spring. I may or may not get this job as office manager. That has yet to be seen. However for the time being when she goes out-of-town or is sick I always fill in. Last week I moved all my cleaning jobs around to fit into the same week instead of alternating weekly. I have 1 weekly cleaning and 2 bi weekly cleanings as well as 1 monthly. I fit them all in last week so no one would go without cleaning too long while I cover the office. I will be here in the office through the 23rd. My mom should be back the 23rd or 24th.
I am extremely busy with being here, and scheduling who is watching the kids since Christmas break starts this next week. That was slightly stressful pulling together. IF I get this position full time next year I will know much further in advance so setting up summer/afterschool daycare shouldn’t be a huge issue.
So why am I telling you all this? Come on, that’s what you’re wondering right? Well I feel distant lately. I feel like all my energy is being pulled in opposite directions. Don’t worry, I will still have posts here almost every day. In fact I have an ARC giveaway coming on Monday (the 20th) that you most certainly do NOT want to miss out on. It’s a book I wholeheartedly recommend…and I LOVED IT. I also have a special guest blog next week as well as a hump day hottie (yum-o).
It’s hard to voice what is actually going on in my brain. I think I mentioned a long time ago…back before I had any followers (HA)…that I tend to suffer from bouts of depression. I get much worse during the winter months. The colder it gets, and it worse I feel. It’s pretty darn cold in Ohio right now, LOL.
Just bear with me through the Christmas holiday. Once I get into a rhythm it will be much easier for me to fit everything in. Next year will bring with it new and exciting changes! Both in my personal life and here on Ramblings! I have some great stuff planned!
