Stephanie, our nanny for the past year, had her last day with us on Thursday. She had a wonderful opportunity to teach English to students in France. Of course she took it – I would have killed her if she didn’t.
That doesn’t mean I’m wasn’t super sad to see her go. My daughter loved her and Stephanie made all our lives better. We loved having her in our home and wish her only the very best in her new journey. (If you’d like to follow along, Stephanie has promised me she will keep us up to date on her blog.)
Today, the new nanny starts. I won’t mention her by name, because I don’t think that’s fair to her. As you may have noticed I didn’t mention Stephanie by name until now either.
Along with the change I’ve adjusted my schedule. As I’m sure many of you can relate, I’m still trying to figure out my actual work hours. Before today I officially worked from 9:00 – 5:00 PM (minus commute) Monday – Thursday. Now I’ve changed my hours to 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM Monday – Thursday and 8:00 AM – Noon on Fridays.
I’m telling you this because I get a lot of questions and have a TON of discussions with other women about “How I Do It.” I changed my schedule because I work better in the mornings. We’ll see how it goes, but already today I’m feeling more productive.
Generally, I work from an office. This is a MUCH better for situation for me as I get easily distracted at home. I’m still considering working from home on Fridays, but it makes me worried. I might make it my coffee shop day as well.
Do you have a regular work schedule? Or have you worked something else out? I’d love to hear about it.
