My life will be crazy this week. Whenever I go out on the road and have not prepared my house or personal life, it can get out of control.
Sunday: I flew back into Atlanta because I had an early report time for work Monday morning. I made it home about 8pm but had much needed real estate business to catch up on. Meet a good friend for a quick bite to discuss a client and bring a very important item to her. Well of course I left it at home on the sofa right where I almost left my purse. While en route to meet her, I realized I needed to get gas because I had no desire to leave my house any earlier than necessary to get to work and plus I would not have made it to meet her. I was on empty. You tend to forget how much gas is in your car when you leave it sitting for days. So it is always catching me off guard or I am too tired to stop anywhere and I just pray as I coast home from work. I completed real estate business about 11:30 p.m. Then I remembered I needed to complete bidding for my schedule next month. This is very important! I then had a desire to do something personal for me, so I downloaded a song for my ipod. I have to keep my ipod with fresh music to help keep me sane while away. I officially got into the bed at 1 a.m.
Monday: 4 a.m. wake up to get ready to began a two day trip with a great crew. I sent out a text to let her know that I was bringing my swimsuit just in case she was debating to pack one or not. I get to work around 6 a.m. and I fly around until 2:30 p.m. Check into the hotel and set up shop in my room. I get dressed and relax for a moment before heading out. I have a 5:30 a.m. limo pickup for our ride back to the airport.
Tuesday: 4:30 a.m. wake up to start flying at 6 a.m. I will fly until after 8 p.m. I will get home around 9:30 p.m. and unpack and repack my flight bag because I have another two day trip that starts around 7:30 a.m. Dinner may not happen on a night like this. According to my blackberry I have a conference call tonite for my service organization.
Wednesday: 5:50 a.m. wake up most likely. I will fly until 3 p.m. local time but to my body it will be 6 p.m. eastern.
Thursday: 5 a.m. wake up call most likely. I will fly until 2:30 p.m. Make it home around 4 p.m. I will need to wash clothes, clean house and shampoo hair.
Friday: I am FREE from duty! I have been out of town all week so I am forced to do all errands today. My wake up may not be as early as the other mornings this week but I can not lay around all day. Car has to be serviced, renew tag, check and read mail and pay bills.
Saturday: I report back to work around 5:30 p.m. and work until 2 a.m. I will be gone for another two days.
This career will make you become some what organized if you are not already. Your life becomes a big whirlwind at times. You can go days without speaking with friends or family. I can admit that I used less than 300 minutes of my cellphone plan last month. My rollover balance is in the thousands. I have had to look at the day of the week on my birth control just to know what day it is. LOL! It really does get crazy.
This week I will keep going and going and going. From the looks of things next week will not be much better.
Smooches from the jumpseat,
