I have 6 hours of class tomorrow. Well, technically, today. I woke up at 1:30 am and now I can't go back to sleep. I just know something is going to dreadfully wrong tomorrow. This is a web based training class for a part-time job I have just been hired for. It is only temporary (ends mid-June), but I am still apprehensive.

My husband usually is around for stuff like this because something ALWAYS goes wrong when I am doing this type of thing. But he will be working tomorrow and I will be here to figure all this out for myself. This is never good.

I have all of my instructions and he and I went over most of it last night. But, I was reading it again earlier, and there are some things I neglected to ask him. So, I will be going over that with him when he gets up.

I am really excited about this new venture. It will give me an opportunity to network and hopefully find employment outside of my current job. Plus, we really need the extra money right now. Most of us do.

I will also be throwing papers for my friend for 3 weeks straight during this. So I will be working 3 jobs. I have not that in a very long time. Since I can do the new one on my days off, and the paper route before I go to work, they will not conflict with each other, but I am going to be very, very tired! There are several good things about all of this, so I am trying to look on the bright side.
1. We will have some much needed extra income.
2. I will be able to pay some more on my unsecured debt.
3. I can give a day away at my full time job to a part time employee that really needs the day.
4. I can network and hopefully find different employment out of the entertainment industry.

There are some downsides to all of this that I am trying not to dwell on.
1. I won't be able to spend much time with my family.
2. I will be spending more time traveling. The upside is that I should not have to stay overnight anywhere.
3. My house will become somewhat neglected during this time. Everyone picks up after themselves somewhat, but, no one does the heavy cleaning except me.
4. I will be doing a lot of "crock pot" type cooking so we can all eat when we are home. This will mean not many family dinners for a while.

But, I will only be doing this for 12 weeks so I figure I can hang for that long.
Wish me luck!!

    wow, working three jobs has to be hard! But it sounds like you're doing everything you can to make a better life. I hope the networking goes well and it leads to a great position! Good luck with your online training, I bet you do just fine.

    3 JOBS! That's very taxing, for sure, and I pray that the Lord will multiply His supply of strength to you in this 12 weeks. Take care of yourself, especially your health. God bless!
