I was thinking about my life today, and I’ve decided it’s decidedly unique.
I get to spend a whole lot of time with my child, and a whole lot of time with my husband.
Other than some work hours (that I stick to pretty well), I’m free as a bird for much of my week.
One day I can be meal planning and grocery shopping with Joshua, and the next day I’m “jet setting” across the country, landing in a hotel in downtown Des Moines.
I can be sick on the couch on Monday, and running a high energy training session for rural hospital employees on Friday.
I can be master primer/painter/furniture rearranger one moment, and pastor’s wife, ministering via text the next moment.
I spend 20% of my time in casual jeans and a comfortable top, 75% of my time in workout clothes and/or pajamas, and 5% of my time in one of two Limited suits.
I can be marketing guru one minute, sales person extraordinaire the next minute, corporate trainer the next, toddler educator the next, and laundry specialist amidst it all.
I’m always a wife, always a mommy, always a Christian, always a daughter, and every once in a while, a professional speaker.
I spend random amounts of time with strangers–in cabs, on airplanes, at hotel restaurants waiting for my food, in shuttles, trains, trams, vans and buses.
I drop my son off at daycare, and 4 hours later, I’m in another state, on my own for 48 hours while the hubby, who is amazing by the way, holds down the fort at home.
I have seasons of crazy busy-ness, and seasons where it appears I don’t work much at all.
The balancing act of a working mom is a strange one–especially a working mom with such disparity in her schedule.
From PJs to Limited suits, from emailing from my kitchen to working from the Hyatt. From multi-tasking mommy to corporate trainer lady, from choo choo train conductor to curriculum designer …
this is my life.
