Partially losing it...

1 full time job
10 semester hours at school
5 hour volunteering at the hospital and other clinic
24 hour personal/family life/whatever, or lack of

The start of 2008 has definitely been one of the most active times of my life and I will reap the reward for it, at a price.

I prided myself on being able to handle it all and reset on Sundays. I always loved to talk about what I've been able to accomplish mostly to remind and prove to myself that I can do anything I set my mind to....

I've been doing it since January and had no problems...until last week.

Last week I totally forgot to go to the hospital to volunteer, yah know, the place that wants to hire me in July! I don't get penalized because it's volunteer work, but a no call no show does not look good. I just didn't realize until Friday that the day before was Thursday.

Yesterday during class I asked the professor if we were doing anything important Wednesday, April 16th, a week from today. His response, "*insert gov't name* today is Monday". I had to actually think about it because I really thought it was Wednesday. My Monday and Wednesday schedules are the same.

After class I realised the second part of my mistake with what I asked my professor. See, the 16th is when our department has it's banquet and I would like to go. The 16th is tomorrow, not a week away.

Starting next week I am only volunteering 3 hours vs. 5. However, soon I will be picking up a hour a week volunteering with the PT that work with the school system. I have to wait for the Head PT to call me back. That will be until the second week in June, so only about 6 or 7 weeks. See grad school not only look at how many hours you have, but the different environments you've been exposed to.

The semester is over on the 30th (last time I heard) which is 2 weeks away. Then summer I starts mid-late May. I am only taking 3 hours summer I and 4 hours during summer II. YAY!

Since things are going to slow down for me, Snookums is thinking about changing his schedule a bit to hang with me. YAY! Can't wait!

So my extended break is coming. Thank you God.

Are you going to the banquet tomorrow? If so will you be wearing the appropriate thong?

You either need to slow down or get some memory enhancing products. I'd vote for slow down though.

Are you even going to have time for your "Snookums"? I've heard there are still a few jobs in your area that need you to fill them. LOL!

deepnthought said...

wow. And now you know why I think you are the beezknees.

That is a lot on your plate.

Sow down and breathe.

So, are you going to the banquet?

can we see pics?

blkbutterfly said...

i know how it feels to run around like a chicken w/ its head cut off. thank God you have a break coming very soon!

Ladynay said...

Yes I am going to the banquet, no thongs...maybe...:-D

Things will start to slow down a lot in 2 weeks, so that will happen automatically. I've thought about about some natural memory enhancers though...

I will have more time for him, Pooka, and everyone else. I am iggn' your jokey joke!

DNT, Beezknees is one of those phases where you just can't help but smile :-)

I breathe on Sunday's between 12-2pm...LOL It will get better soon.

Yep yep yep

and yep yep yep!

Ladynay said...

BB, Yes lawd! You have one coming soon come summer time! Does your jobs program hook you up for the summer or do you have to hustle till the fall?

Anonymous said...

Your plate is full. My plate is trying to get full by I refuse. I don't have the patience to take on some many tasks now. My son wears me out on the daily.

Freaky Deaky said...

You can single handedly end unemployment in your area and you're playing around. That's so selfish. :oD Methinks you're either part Jamaican or part slave. Whenever I open up my plantation you're going to be my number one pick in the slave drafts. LOL I'ma work you like a Ladynay.

kasandra said...

Well it's good your taking a breather. Freaky is right, you've either turned into a Jamaican or a slave. But I guess it's better to work your butt off while your young so hopefully you won't when your old. ***SIGH***

Ladynay said...

Southern, if it will be full temporarily you can do it. The older O get's the more you will be able to do, that is if you wanna do it! :-)

Freaky, ummmm #1 slave pick? Uhhhhh no! LOL! But if all these places are going to cooperate with my life and pay me handsomely not just pin money, I may consider taking all the jobs! LOL!

Kasandra, I wouldn't mind being Jamaican so I have another reason to go back to Jamaica! :-)

It will be worth it...when you put the keys in your house, call one of your checking accounts and any of them have more than a 3 digit figure in them, when you take a vacation it can be out of the country and if you feel like it you can fly first class...just because. When your sons been acting right and asks you for some splurge item, you can go and get it right then cuz you can and he deserves it, when we not check to checking...it'll be worth it. You would've paid all your dues and it'll be your time...all yours. Nobody will be able to take it from you.

Black Mamba said...

Wow, your break down hurt my head, lol.

I'm amazed you've been able to keep track of all that since January...sounds like you need a bit of R & R.

Ladynay said...

Yep Mamba some extended R&R at that. My brain is giving me the signs! LOL I usually get R&R on Sundays cuz all I do is chill with my daughter, but one day is starting not to be enough!

Freaky Deaky said...

Hey, I treat my slaves pretty damn well. Being the first slave has it's benefits. I'll creep into your rickety little shack first. Did I mention you'll get a shack? How can you pass that up? Some of my slaves will be lucky to get one of my dog's chewed up binkies.

Ladynay said...

Have I ever told you you have issues? LOL

blkbutterfly said...

well, since i'm technically an employee of my school district, i get paid through the summer. silly me also decided to take on a summer job, though. so, i'll be working for about 6 weeks. then i'll get a real break!

Ladynay said...

Cool, I was listening to a morning show the other day and a teacher was complaining about how little she'd be making over the summer and that she was looking for a summer job to help keep stuff paid.

Ms.Honey said...


and I know how you feel


AR Gal said...

Your schedule puts mine to shame. I shall not complain again....well at least for a little while. :-)

Enjoy that break coming up!
