I've had to work longer hours this week - two extra hours each day. It's amazing how much I used to get done in those two hours every day. My writing has been pretty much nonexistent due to the loss of those precious hours.
I've decided I'm glad this was just a short term assignment that required the longer hours because I hate losing my writing time, I hate getting up at 4:45am, and I hate knowing longer hours may become more frequent in the next couple of months.
While, it sounds like I'm complaining and maybe I am a bit, let me say I'm very grateful that I have a job when so many others aren't so fortunate.
