|Which one am I? Image|
Okay back to work for me today. Seems very strange to be leaving the family in the care of the Silver Fox as he is usually the one to be at work. They have lots planned and we will all do stuff when I get home. Might need a scalpel to get Miss T off the couch though!!
I love my job. I work in health care and education so I get nice civilized hours. No weekends and no public holidays. Fantastic that, especially having done it all for years. It is nice to be able to plan now. Unlike previously. If I had my career choice to do over again I would seriously consider teaching. Just because of the hours and I do like to teach which probably helps. I have never, in 12 years of parenthood, been able to come to terms with the 4 weeks holiday vs 12 weeks holiday that the children get. What the? I don't get it. What are families supposed to do?
Now Miss T is going off to High School and child care around here only goes up until the age of 12. I'm not really sure what to do with her for school holidays this year. Hmmm, I think the answer is to be creative in my work. So this is the year of being creative. This year I am doing study to be able to teach in higher education so this will enable me to work school semesters. Well, that is the plan. What does everyone else do? What are your thoughts on juggling work and children? Any tricks up your sleeves?....
Ciao for now
