Start working normal business hours (read all 2 entries…)
Same company -- different job

My schedule continues to be unpredictable and at the most inconvenient times. Currently though we’re in a special situation which means I’m making more money than normal but also working less normal hours than normal.

I’m really tired of working evenings and weekends and envy with green eyes the people walking down the street on Monday mornings at 8 am heading to their normal hour jobs.

The opposite

I know everyone says they want the opposite – to be free of regular business hours. So I took a job that gave me one weekday off and one weekday morning off (working late).

It sounded good at the time, but now I really want to start working regular business hours so I’m off at the same time as my friends and family and have more time to spend with my son and husband.

Having a weekday off a week sounds like a dream – but then you realize that means giving up a weekend day – which is usually when fun things happen.

So even though I like my job, I’m ready to go back to regular working hours!

Risotto!

I’ve eaten risotto but never tried making it until last night. It was surprisingly easier than I thought—lots of attention required but not a lot of preparation.

I made it with dried mushrooms and parmesan cheese.
