I try to never wake up before 8am because I am a raging bitch prior to that hour. This also means I don't get to work until about 9:30-10am, which is normally fine because I stay there until 6 or 7pm. Know what though? Staying till 6-7pm is getting kind of bullshit. I don't get home until anywhere between 6:30-8pm. Dinner doesn't get made until after that. We don't go to bed until midnight.
So today Ryan started his new job, and I woke up with him at 6:15 so I could do things like lay on the floor with the dog and iron his dress shirt. I also cleaned up the living room, made breakfast for me while he made his lunch, and laid on the floor some more with the dog. And I wrote this blog post. All before 7:30am. I feel so productive.
We've decided that we're going to start being adults and getting to work by 9am so we can leave at.... 5pm. I know, what a concept, right?
Ryan should be arriving to work around 8am this morning, and I'm a little bit nervous for him. New boss, new co-workers, new office... I hope it's an easy transition for him. Not that I think it won't be, but new jobs are stressful! And I know that he really liked what he did at his old job. This job is more money and better hours, though, and is more in line with what he wants to do in the future. I hope he has a good day... I'm sure he will.
My goal for the day is to get to work by 9am... if I get in the shower now, I can totally do it. Happy Monday!
