Hours!?! What are hours -LMAO-

In all seriousness though, I usually go from 9am to 1pm then take an hour away to grab lunch and take a walk with the dog. Then from 2pm to 4pm, then offline and help kids with homework etc, then 8pm to whenever I decide I'm done for the night!

Now of course I don't do all those hours every day, but whatever I need to work on usually gets squeezed into one of those time frames.

I've recently changed my ALL THE TIME hours to mostly daytime hours...off on evenings and weekends....it's been wonderful!! Spending more time with kids, hubby, relaxing, getting in a lot of reading, etc

I have the last 2 wks+ been slipping ever-so-slowly back into my old ways - I've gotta watch that!

This is a good thread - glad it was reawakened to keep these thoughts on my mind.

But like, yesterday and today, I was not feeling well, so during the day I didn't finish all I needed to get done, so I'm doing some at night.

I've been much more relaxed and happy and feeling connected to my kids, though, since I've gotten more reasonable with my hours.

Hey, I'm always lonely.

About the only socializing I get to do is visiting the doctor and complaining about being old, tired and ugly.

LOL :lol: Well you probably get more social interaction than me! These days the most social interaction I've got is dragging my MIL to her doctor appointments and listen to her complain about being old and tired and how her daughter in law is making her do stuff!

ROFLMAO ... I can hardly wait until I get to have my DIL or SIL carry me. Boy, the complaining I can do. Years of pent up bellyachin' and bitchin' will come to the fore!

I usuall get to work from 2-4pm when my 2 year old and 2 month old are having a nap. Then I usually work from 9pm-11pm after they go to bed. Also I try to get an hour or 2 in on Wednesday mornings when gramma takes my 2 year old to nursery school.

Whenever I need to get something done. OK ... I admit to being lazy. :lol:

Other than that my only "sort of" steady hours is 9am to maybe 11-11:30am 3 or 4 days during week when I do my daytrading gig.

When summertime comes around and the patios are open, I'm in "kick back" mode. Image

Flexibility is what I strived for all these years. I'm fortunate that I'm able to have that flexibility nowadays.
