It has been a week since my last night at work. It’s been an amazing week. Otis had already scheduled a few days off during this time (before we were even 100% sure of my quitting time). He has had a few crazy-busy weeks at the church and knew that he would appreciate some time off to recover.
Adjusting to a normal sleep schedule has not yet happened. Some nights, I am still up until 2 or 3 am. I still want to go take a nap after lunch every day. The good thing is though that the naps are much, much shorter than they were before! I know that it will take time for me to adjust. I had done some research and found that it usually takes about three weeks. I am definitely looking forward to that adjustment!!
I have not bombarded the work at home thing quite yet. I have maintained my status on the sites that I have already been working on. There are some things coming, but I haven’t completely jumped in yet. I wanted to enjoy some time with my family and give myself grace for an adjustment period.
We have loved the time off together. We have grilled out and played games. We have skipped rocks and gone to movies. We have spent time outside and lit sparklers.
It’s been wonderful.
