Anyone here glad that it’s Friday? I know I am! BUT..I’m on a 4 day extreme work and minimal sleep account. So let me fill you in.
A few months ago, I picked up another part time job in the EARLY mornings and a few hours on a Sunday during the week. Not many hours but enough to give me a few extra dollars! Who doesn’t like some extra cash right? But then Coaching started. Those are late nights, the latest I get home is 11pm! I know! Awful! I feel bad for my swimmers who then may still have homework to do and then get up the next day (some for early morning practice with their club team) and go to school!
So for example, yesterday I was up at 4am, went to my part time job. Then went to my full time job, THEN…went home, changed and went to the swim pasta party (First meet is tonight! Woohoo!!) but oh wait there’s more! I had practice until 10:30pm! So I got home just before 11pm to go to wind down and go to sleep to wake up at 4am this morning.
I was able to wake up and get to my job on time, and boy was that a crazy place. I’m now at my full time job. I have to go pick up race packets after work, then head home, change and head to the school to meet with the team before our first meet at 9pm. Yeah late again. Such is the life. Then we head to Ihop after the meet. SO it’s going to be a LATE night and I work tomorrow instead of Sunday.
Whew. Does that make anyone else tired just reading it?!
I hope you all had a great week. I can’t wait to get the season started tonight on the pool deck. 16 years and counting as a coach. 🙂
Now…where did I put my Coffee.
