As a working mom, Wednesdays are the busiest in addition to longest days of the week for me.
However i start my day bright and early about 5AM, with a cup of Tim Hortons Coffee in addition to working on my laptop.
I have the good fortune to work from home, which also comes with it’s pros & cons. One of those cons is I have to be disciplined in addition to stay focused. Getting up so that gives me a chance to do work in my office before my daughter gets up needing my attention. On Wednesdays, I take get to school at 7AM then I stay until 12 to help out in her classroom. I adore the time I spend at her school because it’s a great environment. The elementary school is only 5 years old, so everything is either renovated or brand new. This includes the heating & air system! When I was but a kid, we were lucky to even have central heating & air. Instead, we opened up the windows and wished for a breeze or cool afternoon. Each classroom here has a temperature control which is set by the school district each day according to the predicted weather. The district believes in making their students comfortable so they then focus on studying. I’m always just super impressed with how neutral that temperature in her classroom feels. I’m never too sizzling or too cold while I’m volunteering. Another thing her school does, is to maintain their air filters. Instead of having them upgraded when the unit starts becoming less energy efficient, they check all of them at the end of the month and then make the upgrades when needed. I look so forward to the time I am allowed to spend in my daughter’s classroom with the nice air.
