i'm not sure when it is going to start but fairly soon i am only going to be working four days in the office. we have workshare so i will still get paid a percentage for the day i am not working. i forget how it is calculated but it's not going to hit me too hard. we have done this over the years when we hit a slow period, usually it is only for a month or less. i think this might be a bit longer but i can manage.
i have not been nearly as busy the past few days so it is actually somewhat of a relief. i knew this would happen sooner or later. the last few rounds i had a pass and still worked my full week. this time it's going to be 32 all around, which is totally fair. i know some people will complain, so they can choose between 0 hours or 32 + a fraction of the remaining 8.
i thought about part-timing but i will probably volunteer or start working on one of the many mini goals i haven't made time to work toward. it can't hurt to get in good with the local library community and get first word on any openings, which is why i need to also use the free time to work toward my license.
maybe i am losing a few dollars but i am going to gain some sense.
