I'm at work right now. I'm an adminstrative assistant and I really only work the first week and the third week of each month. The other two weeks, I have nothing to do. I have asked for more duties and my boss says "enjoy the down time, get on facebook or something"
Dude, really. Now he's right, when it's busy, it's REALLY busy.. but on days like today - I am bored out of my mind.
I have a 6 year old and a 3 month old.
I drop them off to the sitter at 6:15 AM. I drop my husband off at work at 6:40 and then I get to work at 7:00 AM.
I leave work at 3:30, pick my 6 year old up from school at 3:50, pick my DH up from work at 4:00 and pick up my 3 month old from the sitter at 4:20
By the time we get home it's 5:00 o'clock.
Sometimes we have errands to run. By the time I cook dinner, we eat dinner, do homework.. it's bedtime. They go to bed at 7:30, since they get up at 5:30.
I hate sitting here at work, when I could be spending time with my 3 month old, getting stuff done around the house.. making sure dinner is ready, the house is clean, errands are run etc. while DS6 is at school.
I miss my kids.
My DH cannot support us on his income alone. =(
