Long hours....... I'm tired

I worked 10 hours yesterday, felt like I got a good deal accomplished, then I came home and worked at home for another couple of hours, but at least I was home for some dinner and in the same room with my kids. My job encompasses two full time jobs that I am trying to do by myself, and they wonder why I have to work late & at home. I've been doing this for 3 years, it's getting a bit old, especially since I HATE one of the two jobs. My boss just says, oh you'll grow to like. Bull..... I hate it more each day and it makes me hate going to work. I love the other part of my job but barely ever get to do it. I've never liked my boss either (thankfully she's only been around the last few years) I don't trust her, she has screwed over too many people. She will step on anyone to get herself to the top.  Today I have to work 8 hours at my regular job  and another 4 hours at my second job.

If I actually got paid for all the hours at my main job, I wouldn't need my second job. Unfortunatly I am salaried, so anything extra I do there is no compensation for.
I'm extremely frustrated. And very tired.

Positive Teenagers

Today, as with a very few other days, I actually talked to my teenagers on the phone after school, discussed their days and did NOT end up in a fight, with at least one of them. I cherish these times but would like to have them happen more.  I do really have good kids overall but they are still teenagers and are living up to the stereotypes to the fullest. They can sometimes be very difficult to handle. Always looking for suggestions.

This last weekend I worked a lot of hours. My daughter and I went and worked out for an hour. Today I had an opportunity to take half a day off. i took it. I've been working 50-60 hours a week between my two jobs. I needed some time off. So i decided to start this blog. I'm feeling pretty good tonight but I know tomorrow I'm back to a 14 hour day - at least. It's all good, it keeps me out of trouble. And today i spent some time relaxing with my kids. It helped me to avoid doing some work today.  :)

Life Looking Up

Do you ever feel like your at the bottom looking up in your life? Or about 6 steps behind?? I feel that way alot. My life is crazy. I am a 52 year old woman that works full time in a hospital and then some. it's one of those jobs (actually two jobs that I am doing as one) where you work 40 hours a week for pay and all of the rest of the hours that have to be put in are for FREE! I have a second job - this is my fun job- I work in a local karate school as an assistant instructor and at the desk. It keeps me busy and I jump into classes whenever possible. I also have two teenage kids that are in high school and help my parents out hwenever they need it. Needless to say  I am on the move alot. That's what my blog is about. How busy people get through the day, how you deal with the frustrations and how to find the bright side of things. Feel free to post if you are looking up from the bottom because you had a difficult day and just need to let it out, or if your Life is looking up and things went well today. I am looking to discuss it and share ideas and positive outlooks.
