The couple weeks I’ve been adapting to a new schedule, arriving to work between 6 am and 7 am and home between 3 pm and 4 pm. The change enables me to be home for the kids after school. For the most part it’s been a positive change. I’m finding that I’m a bit more productive at work during the quiet morning time and I get to enjoy more of the afternoon. The one drawback is I’m rather tired by the middle of the afternoon. I hope to keep the momentum, but I need to find a way to work in a siesta. Interestingly, my dad worked a 6:30 to 2:30 shift for much of his railroad career. I’m now understanding his afternoon napping!
