Two Jobs Was Just Too Much for Me

Tired of trying to get ahead on many occasions and finding myself spinning my wheels, I knew it was time to get a second job. I decided to apply for a seasonal job, and if it worked out well, I would then apply for a full time position. I needed quick cash to get ahead, and I was willing to do it if it would work.

I knew that many retail chain stores hired people for the holidays, so that is where I began applying. I was asked for an interview and did well on the very first one that I was invited to. I was excited about the prospect of making more money, but not so excited about the long hours I would need to work every day between two separate jobs.

Okay, this is funny and serious at the same time. The details up front are that we live on a dairy farm, and we now have a new baby who cannot tolerate formulas. She has to have human milk. The confounding factor is that I can only produce enough milk if I use a breast pump. I found a good one at besthospitalgradebreastpump.com. Now put yourself in my shoes. Ever since I have been a teenager I have worked on a dairy farm. Now being a married adult, I work our own dairy farm. Every morning we go out and hook up cows to milking machines. I never gave it a second thought as to what the cows might be thinking until I hooked up that hospital grade breast pump to myself.

Imagine my husband walking into the room early one morning after we, along with our employees, had just finished milking the cows. He sees me at the table with the shades drawn reading instructions and trying to hook up a breast pump. I could see the smile in his eyes that was holding back a laugh, but he was scared to say anything not knowing how I might respond. Read more
