As I'm sure most of you know my work has started a trial 10-hour, 4-day work schedule. I know, the majority of all your reactions right now is, "I wish my work would do that!" I get this same response from everyone. I'm not going to deny the fact that indeed it is nice to have a three-day weekend. However, four days of the week I am met with a lot of stress. One can certainly make the argument that the extra day can be used to "get things done." It is a valid argument but some things can't wait until Friday to be done. Things like church callings, dinner, running and other extra curricular activities. My schedule is this: get home from work at 6:45pm, go running, shower, and finally at 8 or 8:30pm (depending on the distance of the run) I can sit down for dinner (which Wyatt usually makes for me - what a stud!). Leaving about three hours to enjoy myself, my time with Wyatt or try and attack something on my list of things to do. If my week is anything like this past week, I have other obligations after work (right after work at 7pm) and I don't get home until 10pm or so. (This whole new schedule explains the long lulls in my blog writing). Do you see my frustration in the situation? I will be the first to admit that I do not adapt to change easily. And I know that I have grown very used to my past schedule of grocery shopping, doing laundry and cleaning the house on the weeknights. Maybe I'm a bit old school but I really like the idea of spreading chores out throughout the week rather than designating one day to tackle them all. It's a bit overwhelming if you ask me. I know, I know, there are advantages and disadvantages to both. Like I said...I'm adjusting.
