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! 11 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!! 14 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. 15 months ago
is not happening. 15 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. 22 months 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. 23 months 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. 23 months ago
