My Day

So I came home today totally bone tired. The sort of tired that walks up and slaps you in the face and says “Go to bed fool cause tomorrow you are doing it all over again”

I was asked earlier in the day what I do all day as it did not seem enough to make me that tired so I thought I would write it all down so it can be read.

Just sit back and imagine this going through your day. Are you sitting down…Good then I will begin

4:15am ish My alarm goes off

4:30am ish My second alarm goes off and I finally fall out of bed and start getting ready for my day.

5:15am to 5:30am I stumble out of the house, coffee in hand and head out on the road to work

6:00am to 6:15am I arrive at work after getting a tune stuck in my head thanks to the local radio station playing it for the last week at the same time each day. Time to refill the coffee cup and head out to the bus

6:30am to 8:30am Route Number One. Taking kids their schools. Depending on the day I drop off at either two or five schools and return to the base to change buses

9:00am to 10:30am Shuttle routes from one school to another. Usually only one child at a time though

11:00am to about 12:00pm Time to take the pre-school age children home. They only do half a day.

12:30 to 2:00pm More shuttle runs from school to school

2:00pm to 4:15pm Taking the kids home from school. This can change from day to day and depends who rides the bus home.

Once my route is done I spend about 15 minutes making sure that nothing was left on the bus and sweeping it if needed. I then have to park it in the correct space and enter my time and mileage for the day so that I can get paid.

4:15pm Drive home

5:00pm Arrive back with my loving family.

Shower, Rinse, Repeat
