I have started a new job as a factory worker for an aluminum die plant. It is long hours for average pay but the overtime works out to me working two jobs and this job gives me a chance to prove I can do something different. A lack of sleep is now an even greater problem. I worry for my children’s safety. Especially in the mornings when I drive them with me. These kids aren’t old enough to trust to be on their own either. The truth is I am exhausted all the time and it is a miracle I can even function. I am a god damned wizard on caffeine summoning the ability to care and function out of an increasingly dry well. Go me.
