New things to adjust to

Well I guess it's been a while since I've posted.  A few new things have started since I was last here.  My kids have started school and I started a new job two weeks ago.  It was a very hard decision for me.  I really wanted to work on my tutoring business so I could work at home.  I may still do this part time.  I applied at a day care and preschool for a part time position.  I was suppose to be working with the two year olds as an aid.  At the last minute the owner asked me if I was interested in the preschool teacher position.  I love working with that age group and that's the position I had at my former job.

The reason it was a hard decision was that I would need to be there earlier in the morning and I was thinking that I would have to take work home, being the head teacher.  She said I would rarely have to take things home.  So I decided to be honest with her about my illness and my reservations.  Something I don't usually do.  I figured what have I got to lose?  I knew I still had my tutoring job.  I told her I would try it.  I do like the job, but I have been so wiped out lately.

My kids have to leave for the bus by 6:35.  (I personally think that is way too early.)  I have been coming home from work and just crashing until an hour later when the kids come home.  At least I have that hour.  I am hoping that my body will become a little more use to it. 

How do you handle juggling a job, kids and a house when you have limitations?
