Wednesday's & Friday's

United States
October 7, 2015 7:50am CST
My weeks just seem to be crazy lately. It seems that Wednesdays and Fridays are the only days that I can get any real online work done. The rest of the week I am running errands, paying bills, taking the kids to speech therapy or doctors appointments and of course my own appointments. I have been trying to get all of the doctors appointments out of the way because after the 15th Keith's classes will be full time and he will be gone 5 days a week. Next week and the week of Halloween are going to be easier on me schedule wise. I hope that I am able to get more done here at work due to that. How is your schedule going?

Even thought I'm retired I still find that I'm busy and have to find time to be online

I know several people who actually complain about retiring because then they feel as if they have nothing to do. It is good that after retirement you kept busy.

I think a lot of retirees are like me @Shellyann36 simply enjoying the opportunity to finally stay home with the kritters, I don't ever want to have to leave to go to work, it was no fun then and I know it wouldn't be now.

@rebelann I would probably feel that way too but I would still work online. My daddy went a little crazy when first retired. He started back to work.

It all depends on my work schedule. I don't like working extra because then I don't have that extra time to do things.

I think that you have to leave time for yourself to do other things or else you won't be happy.

I understand that. I don't know how I managed making it through working full time and being a divorced mother when my older boys were young..... Oh yah, I do know how, I was 20 years younger!

@Shellyann36 I haven't worked full time since before I was 20 years old. Once I got pregnant with the twins I stopped working and have only worked part-time since... until now.

@katsmeow1213 I have not worked full time outside of the home since 2007. I am not sure how I would do at a brick and mortar place. How do you like it?

@sofssu When I was unemployed I did get stressed about it, but now I have a job I can have more fun on here and not stress over not having time to reply to all comments.

I don't really have much of a schedule besides cleaning house. I don't work anymore and my kids are grown.

It is good that you can now relax more. I would like to relax once in a while but I rarely do. One of these days is what I keep thinking.

Wednesdays are the worst. It's not pay day, it's not Friday, and there's still HALF THE WEEK TO GO! It's like your worst ex girlfriend showing up once a week to piss you off lol

I am sorry to hear that you have so many health problems. Of course you could create your own schedule for online work.

My schedule will slow down a lot after this weekend. I have a three day show and then I can do what I please. Looking forward to no demands on my time. Thanks for the welcome.

@PainsOnSlate you are welcome, I am so glad to see you here. I know you will be happy when you have some time to slow down and take a deep breath. That will mean that you will be here more.

I am the same, but the thing is on my days off I am more likely to be doing errands than being on here which is strange.

That is not strange @Gudheart when you work a regular job you have to use your days off as a day to take care of errands. Honestly when I was working a job outside of the home I was normally too tired to run errands on work days plus most businesses closed before I could get to them (utilities, rental office, etc) so I had to make the most of my days off. Hitting the grocery store and paying the bills were done on those days.

Oh wow, sounds hectic to me. How long will Keith be taking classes? So glad you got a chance to get a discussion going. What's Keith studying?

It is a bit hectic but it has to be done. I am glad I got a chance as well. It is nice to come in here and relax! Keith is taking a machining class for laser operators. It is a 2 year degree and he just started during the summer. He has a way to go.

I dread the weekend at times @LadyDuck My hubby comes up with this big list of things to do that I am so not interested in. It is a pain at times.

@Shellyann36 My husband does the same, he has a list of things to do, I wonder why I have to be there and help, he could do his job and let me do mine.

@LadyDuck It is as if I have to hold hubby's hand for some reason. Do you have to "help" your hubby or just sit and watch and play gopher for him when he needs something?
