Biting Off More Than I Can Chew?

(c) Misty DawnS

I thought a photo of the cherries on our cherry tree would be appropriate for a post wherein I express concern that I may have just bitten off more than I can chew. Don't ya think? hehe

You see, at my full-time job today, I got outstanding news. My position has been changed from an hourly position to a salary position, which means many more outstanding benefits. I also received a nice raise to go along with it. Nothing outstanding, but a raise that is more than the usual raise.

Then, after getting home, and while doing my second job as the Virtual Assistant for the lawyer in Ohio, I received a phone call. I was offered the chance to do some more Virtual Assistance work from home. Since my ultimate goal is to work completely from home, I agreed to talk about it further. Now, after hanging up, I'm wondering if I have bitten off more than I can chew. Can I really keep up with working for the medical university full time (no, we don't sell healthcare carts) AND then come home and do double (or more) of the Virtual Assistance work? I really don't know.

I'm grateful for the opportunities, but I also don't want to over-extend myself. I so wish my grandfather were around to talk to... I always went to him for advice.

Oh, Misty, what a difficult decision for you.
There are so many factors to take into consideration, aren't there? I would suggest, however, that one factor be your own physical health.
As an incurable over-extender myself, I ended up on a pension 20 years too soon. A disability pension. And my employer's doctor said my job caused my health problem.
Can you ask your own doctor for advice? Just a suggestion, but one offered sincerely.
