Between work and school, I’m carrying a lot. I’m finding I am forgetting stuff trying to get everything done. I have people thinking I’m trying to avoid them, but, really, I’m just overbooked these days.
My schedule is crazy right now.
Mondays, I’m working from 7:30 to 3 ish and then getting on my laptop for class until 4:45. Then I wander home to do a few chores and do homework. I have Molly for company until my daughter gets home from dance around 11 pm.
Tuesdays, I work from 7:30 until 12:30. Then I head to school campus to do a zoom class from the library before I head to an in person class. Then I swim with a friend and get home to shower and do homework.
Wednesday mornings are variable, but I work until 2 ish then head to campus for an in person class. Then Zoom class at 8 pm.
Thursdays are similar to Tuesdays, minus the swim. But I have bookclub in the evening.
Fridays are the days that I catch up in the afternoons at work. I never know when I’m going to get out of there.
The weekends are schoolwork catch up days. More book clubs. Social time with those who catch me early enough to get stuff onto my calendar. Laundry day. Other catch up day.
I have several friends who think I am avoiding them when I say that I can’t drop what I am doing and meet them randomly on a Wednesday evening. I have work the next day. Give me a break.
This is temporary. I’ll be back to being social one of these days. I do find time to meet with people when I know ahead of time. Keep this in mind. Plus, I am still a little freaked out about being with a group of people, so I don’t do it often. It does depend on what the event is.
