New Schedule

My work hours change today...I'm excited!

Now, instead of working 8:30-5:30, I'll be working 7:30-4.   Getting up and leaving the house by 7am may become a challenge, but I think the perks of getting home way earlier in the afternoon will outweigh it.  Plus, since the miserable days of morning sickness began, I've woken up every morning at 6 anyway.  Sooo happy that's over!

Anyway, I have high hopes for my new schedule.  Since I'll be home every day by 4:30, I'm hoping to:

♥put more time and effort into homemade meals (instead of getting home at 6 and saying "I'm starving!  What will be ready in 5 minutes?)

♥get this blog back on the road again.  It's embarrassing how neglected it's been lately, and I think that since I'll be getting home before Jesse now, I'll be able to spend some time on it in the afternoons instead of feeling like I'm neglecting my husband when he's home.

Two small goals to start with, but with as busy as things are these days, that's about all that I can handle.

See you tomorrow!


  1. I have a new schedule too! Although, mine is the total opposite - Jesse has night class 4 nights a week, so I'm hanging around with him in the morning and then working in the afternoon and evenings.

    Like you, I have high hopes that it is going to give me some free time to work on some stuff in the morning while he is doing homework... we'll see how it goes! I'll be praying for success for both of us! :)

  2. Sounds like it will be a good change! I used to work at Starbucks (met my sweet husband there) and I loved working the opening shift. It started at 4:15am which was a little rough, but I got off at 12:45pm and had so much time for life. I've always loved going to bed early, so the early rising wasn't bad and I felt like I got two days in one to get everything done :)
    And it's so nice to have the time to feed your family well and get some personal stuff done without feeling like a neglectful wife :) Enjoy your new found free time...it will soon become more scarce :)

  3. If you're anything like me you'll LOVE the new hours. It gives you SO much more time in the afternoon and it's awesome. In case you couldn't tell I really enjoy being off work at 4...ha!

  4. I need to work on both of those too! I'm home all day, I have no excuse! :)

    (Monday is youth board meeting... are the widows meeting?? ;) )

  5. You'll be amazed at what a difference it makes when you get off at 4. I've worked both 8-5 and 7-4, and in my opinion, the earlier to work, the sooner it's over with, the better! Plus, you'll beat the rush hour traffic when you get off work an hour earlier than everyone else!
