moral dilemma

Artsmonkey says I'm not really blogging anymore, so here goes.

I just got a job-- yay!-- teaching a language I haven't studied in 7 1/2 years. It's only part-time, I get every other day off to sub or prep. I also have a part-time evening job, that doesn't really pay that great. Basically, 1 day of subbing pays a week and a half of my night job. I committed to the evening job until Christmas, kind of . . . they more just said they wanted a commitment to Christmas, even though there's no contract. . . and I did say that if I got a contract I might have to cut back. I desperately need all the prep time I can get. I also need $. I also want to keep my promises. I also know that someone else just put in their 2 weeks notice this week to the evening job, so they'll be stressed if I leave and have to hire 2 people in the next 2 weeks. I also know that this next month is high season for subs, and I could actually pay for Christmas presents, rent, my overdue bills, and Visa payments if I got sub work every day.

What do I do?

what's more important right now. money or sanity.
if you have less money will you have sanity?

the unfortunate part is that the more money option also comes with more sanity. subbing but not tutoring should give me more of both. but i said i'd stay til christmas. . .
