Spend 40 years in a job you fucking hate.

We are looking for a new house.

We have pretty much outstayed our welcome at my parent’s house.

Mainly because Pat is studying full time from home. I am studying part time from home.

Some people think that because we don’t go to a campus every day – IT DOESN’T COUNT.

That we enjoy Pat getting $400 a fortnight.

Just to let everyone in on a secret – without giving you any figures – we are approx $750 a fortnight worse off than if Pat was working. Why would either of us enjoy it?

Quite frankly, we’d both rather NOT have to stress about everything being paid on time.

But you know what?

This is life. And we only get one of it (depending on what you believe).

I’d LIKE to believe that we get more than one shot.

BUT if we don’t, I’m pretty sure we’re not going to be saying “Man, I totally wish I spent 40 years in a job that I fucking hated just so I could pay a mortgage for a house I don’t particularly like, but it’s in the right area and it looks right so I will.”

SO we’ll deal with people thinking that what we’re doing doesn’t count. Because in four years or so, we’ll both have our degrees. We’ll both be happy in our jobs. And we won’t be spending our entire lives hating the fact we have to go to work in the morning.

I can deal with living in a little 3 bed unit in the “wrong” area of town for that, thanks.


Because he makes me happy. Here he is again

Where’d the time go?

Where does the time go?
To you Work At Home Mums – how do you do it? How do you keep a toddler entertained a (not-so) newborn content and get your work done?
I just don’t know how to do it.
I need to go to the beautician, all the hairs on my body need maintainance.
I need to do research andwork for my two assessments that are both due within the next 6 weeks and are worth 60% of my grade.
I need some sleep.
A coffee.
Where does it all fit?
How do I do it all?

Seriously though, do you schedule your days… Anddo the kids understand that?
