When Cam took his new job and learned he wouldn't have class or have to go into the city on Fridays, he suggested I plan to regularly take a Friday off too. It would be our date day.
It was a very sweet suggestion. I'd already agreed to work the next Friday but marked myself unavailable to work on the following one.
Then, I decided to take my new job. I will be working full time, 40 hours a week in an office in the city. My commute will add another two hours to my day everyday. I'm sure all of it will be worth it but I do wish I were able to have our date days. Heading to the beach at 4pm on a Friday is a good thing too.
Who knows? There is some flexibility built into my schedule. I need to be available to meet with volunteers before or after they go to work, even over their lunch hour, whatever works. And, the next few Tuesday nights, I have training from 6-9pm. (Also Cam's late night.)
The idea is that I work from 12-9 on those days. Maybe I can come in at my regular time, take a few breaks throughout the day and bail a few hours early on some Fridays?
Anyway, I'm not complaining. I'm thrilled to be starting soon.
The point of this post was to say, "We had a date day and it was fun."
