These past couple weeks have been a little crazy.
I'm taking fourteen online credits, I've been subbing, and my house is a disaster as a result.
Not even kidding. I can't see my kitchen table.
I'm trying to work ahead in my online classes so that if I get a long-term subbing job, I won't fall behind. That means that I've been putting in about 8 hours of online work a day. It's a lot, and at the end of my study sessions, I just feel like collapsing into a heap or watching mindless TV.
Today, though, it all starting catching up with me. My dirty house has become a huge distraction to me. It's hard for me to be positive and productive when my house is cluttered and messy. I don't feel like I'm being a good wife to my husband, either. One of the ways that I show my love for him and my appreciation for all that he's doing for me is by keeping our home picked up and clean. It's relaxing for him to come home to an orderly home, it's relaxing for me, too.
So today, instead of tackling the Chapter 2 Finite Math exam, Algebra sections 1.6 and 1.7, and reading through my American Lit stuff, I'm going to clean.
Yes, I am a student right now, and I know that I have to get everything done. It is a priority to me. But today, my priority is my home. I'm a wife first and foremost, and sometimes, first things have to come first.
