Self-Employed Summer Surprise

June 4th, 2013 at 08:33 pm

I am self-employed, which is great and terrifying and sometimes horrible. This is one of those weeks where it's horrible.

I found out last Thursday that I was shortlisted for a project (this is great) and the interview is tomorrow (horrible).

F doesn't have camp this week, and I had only 5 days to prepare a presentation for the interview.

Friday: Jotted down notes for the presentation.

F's ballet recital. I brought a notepad and was planning on working between performances, but instead I was one of the parent chaperones.

F had a playdate here; I worked on my presentation in between making lunch for the girls, providing two snacks, helping them fill water squirters and doing an art project with them. But I managed to get a Keynote presentation done by the end of the day.

I had a morning meeting, so D played soccer with F in the park then brought her by so that he could go to his meeting. We stopped by one of my projects to take photos to put in the presentation, went home for lunch and then went to the pool. (Somewhere in there we did pictures with oil pastels and made a practice birthday cake).

I didn't have time until tonight to try out the projector (D had to rush out to get a cable for me to use while I cooked dinner) and do one rushed run-through of the presentation.

Ugh. I have an hour an a half drive to the interview tomorrow... I'll be practicing the whole way! Wish me luck!

    Exhausted just reading all you got done. I'm confident you'll nail the presentation. Best of luck winning the project.

    Thank you! Leaving in about 30 minutes... just one more run-through...

    I know how you feel. I'm self-employed and it's either feast or famine. Plus, when the kids' preschool has a snow day, or like this week, is out of session, it messes up my entire life!
