Ready for a break Thursday

It's been one long week for me--far more clients/work than I'd normally like. It's probably over 25 this week which is twice as many as I like to do.  Oh, here's a question.  I've been at my current job for 1 1/2 years (it'll be two years in September).  I make a lot more than I would elsewhere but I know the clients all really like me at this job and they rely on me because I'm more reliable and responsible than most trainers and relate well to the clients. So, given that I make twice as much here as I would at a regular gym, should I ask for a raise? 

I've been a slug this week but at least I get to teach step today.  I really don't know how I'd fit it in if had to keep working these hours and take care of the kids in the evenings--well, this week was also unusual because my son was at districts in tennis.

25 people sounds like a lot! Do you actually work out with each one? That is over 25 hours working out. I'd be exhausted to the bone. Are there other trainers at the gym and do you know the salary range? If you are at the lower end then I think you should ask for a raise. 

My husband invited 15 people for dinner last night and called me while I was at the gym yesterday afternoon (3:00 pm) to tell me about it. I was furious at him! I bbq'd a ton of chicken and whipped up a baked potato bar and it turned out to be a great evening. I think it was a personal record for planning, purchasing food, and serving dinner for 18 all in about 3 hours.

I am going to try to get in a few miles early this morning after I take my daughter to the dentist as I've got to work tonight at my other job. 

It'll definitely be leftovers tonight.
