Hello I’m Laura…Barely coping Mum of 1…

Here are some other things I’m barely coping with…

Barely coping Office Manager – I manage no staff, and have a great relationship with my Boss…still barely coping.

Barely coping Vegan – I quit eating meat after my son was born, this activated the care about everything switch in my brain and now I can only think of animals as sentient beings with children of their own. I tried to ignore the horror of the Dairy industry for a time but have now jumped straight into quitting dairy. I am still keeping my eyes closed to the horror of egg farming and eating fish…i’m sure that will change too.

Barely coping woman – sometimes I do my hair and makeup sometimes I don’t…I eat the guilt of both of those actions/inactions daily

Barely coping partner – I love my Fella, he’s great, supportive, funny, great Dad, listens to me whine, tries to comfort me when I cry (although I can never cope with it). I am often all of these things in return although sometimes I just want to compete with who is the most tired and does the most housework…*hint* there are no winners here only losers.

Barely coping singer/songwriter – I write songs for myself and for a band, we all have children and struggle to get together to practice, I look forward to practice every damn time, then dread the effort of it when the time comes. We have decided to be a covers band until we can all find the motivation to write again…..

Barely coping entrepreneur – Money making schemes include but are not limited to…Etsy sales attempts, Survey completion, candy websites, mobile cinemas, Child based inventions, Body shop at home Consultant. I am an ideas girl with very little follow through.

Barely coping trainee accountant…I bought an at home training course a year ago to increase my earning potential while still enabling me to spend time with my family. I pay for this course monthly and haven’t started it…I will be paying for this for 4 years.

Barely coping friend – I’m that friend that makes plans then cancels, i also forget to reply to texts and try not to answer the phone (although my good friends know that if it’s urgent ring back and i’ll answer)
I love my friends they’re amazing, kind, generous and low maintenance (which is good because i’m a flake)

Barely coping mum – This is the big one.. the one that keeps me up at night, the one that makes me try harder, and the most rewarding (and terrifying) thing I have ever done. it’s also the one that i will update throughout my time as a………↓

Barely coping blogger – Lets see how this one goes…

  6. Great post here. One thing I would really like to say is most professional areas consider the Bachelor’s Degree as the entry level requirement for an online degree. Although Associate College diplomas are a great way to begin with, completing your current Bachelors reveals many doorways to various professions, there are numerous online Bachelor Diploma Programs available coming from institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another issue is that many brick and mortar institutions offer you Online versions of their certifications but often for a considerably higher amount of money than the companies that specialize in online degree plans.
