Doesn't sound like much, does it?
Until you think about the fact that I'm starting full work weeks again - and yes, I'm totally obsessed by the fact that I have to work 5-day work weeks again. After 5 or 6 weeks of 3- or 4-day work weeks (that's how I took some summer vacation - I was lovin' Mondays and Fridays!), it's not only my 1st 5-day work week in over a month, it starts my 10-hour days, too!
You see, J is a teacher and he decided, 18 years ago, to implement and run an after-school care program in the school. He's the director, which means, given his sense of personal and professional responsibility, that he stays until the last kid is picked up, even if that's 7:20pm (a record).
The after-school care program ends at 5:30pm, just so you know.
He likes to be at work early, and he works the early breakfast, so I'm at my desk by 7:30am, and he picks me up, IF he's on time and all the parents are on time, at 5:45-5:50pm, depending on town traffic.
Do the math. That's 10 hours at this desk.
I'll have to post a picture of my cubicle so you can see how very exciting the idea of 10 hours in my orange desk chair really is... Yes. Orange.
Well, it's 4:57pm and I have about 45 minutes or so to go before I leave work. I'm going to go and check the weather; maybe I'll leave early and walk on over to the school... I have tons to carry so I'm not sure...
