Single Mom here put on a new project and it's absolutely brutal for me and my kids. Makes being a working mom that much harder.

Get up 4 AM
Leave Austin by 5 AM
Arrive to San Antonio office to work by 7 AM
Stay until 5PM
Travel back to Austin (over 2 hours at this time)
Get home 7:30PM
Kids are in bed at 8PM.
