Of course, when we speak of wearing many hats, we’re talking about the many areas of responsibility we function in. Think about small business owners – they do everything at work. She could be sealing the deal of a lifetime in the AM and cleaning the restroom at the end of the day.
Well, isn’t a single mom the CEO of the household? The buck stops with her. She handles all the finances making her the CFO. She purchases everything needed for the household to operate smoothly making her the top Procurement Officer, handles complaints and personnel conflict – that would make her the head of HR and she certainly is the Chief Operations Officer (COO). You can add to that CIO, facilities management and…
Well, you see where I’m going. This blog is about those many hats and how to manage them.
Who am I?
I am not a big name personality. I don’t have a radio show; I have never been on Good Morning America. I am an American woman planted right in the middle of Generation X, living in the Midwest and I may or may not have something to say.
Here’s why I began blogging:
o I am a single mother of three girls
o These three girls each have several extracurriculars with weekly activity that requires my involvement
o I have two jobs to help make ends meet and I am a landlord
o I am in school to further my nursing degree
o I am a volunteer at church and at the kid’s school
o I have a social life (Woot! It’s true!)
o I am a pet owner (sometimes the biggest time burglar there is)
I feel great – like I am succeeding!
To be certain, I don’t have all the answers, but I can tell you what I do to keep my sanity. I can share with you how I keep the family’s lives in balance. It isn’t always a walk in the park, but the Lord has entrusted me with these kids so I’m going to try my hardest to make sure I am on the right path.
That’s what this blog is about.
