What Do I Do All Day?

Day 6 of the Blog Every Day in May Challenge is "If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?"

I can't answer what I do with "my job", because there are multiple jobs that I currently juggle throughout the day.  So what do I do all day?  For the past 8 months, I have been responsible for the following jobs:

Executive Chef
Activity Planner
Cancer Survivor (Yes, this surviving cancer-thing is a LOT of work.  I spend a lot of time with participating in treatments, doctor appointments, figuring out and paying outrageous medical bills, implementing lifestyle changes, etc.)
Home Organizer
Waitress ("Mommy, I need some more water."   "Mommy, Can I have a banana please?"  "Can you slice an apple for me?")
Herb and Vegetable Gardener (a more recent title--look for an upcoming post about that!)
Photographer and Videographer
Mind Reader
Facilities Manager
Motivational Speaker
Toy Repairer
Bus Driver (OK, maybe a mini-van driver, but practically the same thing)

There are probably others that I have forgotten.  I guess you could say I am the "CEO of Domestic Affairs" to sum it up.  It is the toughest job I have held.  No Day is the same and every day presents with new challenges.  There is no monetary payment for doing my job and I get no vacation time.  But, it is a blessing and I am thankful that this is where God has placed me at this point in my life.  "Raising Humans" is a tough job, and I am glad that God believes that I can do it!
