8:00 – Arrive at work; start up computer programs; check/attach email
9:00 – Start working on project
What seems like 5 minutes later…
11:00 – Look at clock. Panic about where last 2 hours went.
1:00 – Panic again, but keep working on small projects. Feels good to get things off my desk/to-do list.
1:00 – 2:00 Lunch. Pleasantly slower. Play Soduku.
2:00-3:30 – Work on another project. Feels like it takes 20 minutes, tops. And no, I’m not taking breaks to check Facebook.
3:40 – Start another project. Will I finish this one? I have to stop working by 4 for about 15 minutes to go pump milk…probably not.
4:30 – Normal quitting time. No way I can leave right now; I’m in the middle of this!
5:00 – Leave work after mostly finishing final project. Hopefully Ryan remembers to meet me at the car, and doesn’t wait by his office door (where I usually pick him up).
5:10ish – Ryan arrives at car. He remembered!
5:20 – Home, where we need to figure out what we need for our trip that we don’t already have (luggage, perhaps?) (I’m only half joking at that). Also, baby and adults need to be fed, and I need to do some additional work from home. And it is Ryan’s birthday tomorrow, and I don’t have his gift purchased ready. Oh, and I need to do some day job work from home. I can squeeze about 8 hours of stuff to do into the next 5, right?
Maybe this is why I haven’t been getting to bed before 11:30 for the past week.
