Mondays I generally work 10 hours
Tuesdays I generally work 9 hours
Wednesdays I generally work 11-12 hours
Thursdays I generally work 10-11 hours
Fridays I generally work 8-9 hours
Saturdays and/or Sundays I generally work 3-6 hours
Some weeks I work as much as 10-15 hours more than that, if I have to take work home to do at night or on the weekends. Haven’t figured out if I count that as “leaving work,” since physically I’ve left work but in actuality it’s followed me. Nonetheless…Tuesdays and Fridays I have generally (but not always) been able to leave before 5:30. Counting this as done, as much as I can do, anyway! 18 months ago
Got to work about 7:30 and left around 5:15. So I worked almost a 10 hour day, but I was able to take an hour for lunch instead of my usual 20 minutes, so it was really more like an 8 1/2 or 9 hour day. (Not counting the work I brought home to do later.) I got off in time to go to a pilates class, but not run. However, I made a “run date” with a friend for tomorrow, so I WILL run tomorrow!! 22 months ago
It felt excellent. Racing against a timer and eating the frog before I had a chance to slow down and think about it helped. It also helped making sure I didn’t venture outside of my workspace, and when I did I was still on a timer. That way when clients or coworkers saw me, I was moving too fast to be engaged in anything but the most necessary conversations, even though conversations are an important part of my job.
Yesterday I had a completely bureaucratic and nonsensical monkey wrench thrown into my schedule, so I couldn’t get out until 6.
Tonight I forced myself to leave at 6:20 to get to an exercise class. I still have things to prepare for a workshop I’m leading, so I may have to go in early and I WILL have to stay very late – like, until 8pm – until that gets done.
Friday I hope to be done by 5 (pleaseohplease) so I can run before the pilates class I signed up for….I may have to see if I can leave a bit earlier than 5 and make up for it on the weekend, since I will be working one weekend day anyway. 22 months ago
is not happening. 23 months ago
Still ended up with 5-6 hours of work this weekend.
Must make plan. Plan good. Too much work bad. Bad for Nic. Bad, work, bad. Nic no happy. No happy when work too much. Hunh. 2 years ago
at 5:15 on Tuesday and 5:45 today. I’m counting today anyway since I was at work 1/2 hour later than usual (I’m always there between 7:30 and 7:45) and I would have left by 5:30 except TripleB called to chat and the janitor wanted to chat, too, as I was walking out the door. So, close enough for me. 2 years ago
I actually left at 3:45 today because I had an appointment. I do have to go in early to make up for it, but since I left sooooo early, if I have to go in less than 30-45 minutes early (splitting the difference), I’m still going to count this as one day this week. 2 years ago
