I don’t write about my kids much in here. I realized that while at work I’m supposed to be working, not doing kid stuff, and I think that stretched into my writing. So, even though my world is split between work and the kids/family - I mostly write about work. Work at work is easier than mom at work most days. Although a few weeks ago I was volunteering for the school Carnival and my kid’s life spilled into work. I enjoyed it. It was fun to combine work and the Carnival – it livened up my already busy day. Who doesn't love a good Carnival?
This Monday on the other hand was the opposite, having home spill into work wasn't fun. Our oldest kid came down the flu - the kind no one wants to get because it's brutal. I spent Monday nursing a sick kid and attempting to work because I needed to check references on a candidate I placed. Yes, the references could have waited one day, but that’s not my personality. When I say I’m going to get it done – I get it done. So, Monday was spent 80% on my kid and 20% of the day getting my work done. It wasn't perfect but it worked out. He’s healthy now and the references are checked and tomorrow he’s off to his last 3 days of school.
My Splitworld sometimes goes 80/20, 50/50 or 100% depending on the day but the good thing is I've finally realized that it's OK not to feel like I need to be at 100% at all times because I still get it all done! It may be a bit unconventional but it works for me and my family.
