It's the kind of position we were hoping for: full-time hours squeezed into three long days. We've both worked that way for many years, although for a long time we had it down to two days. (We knew we wouldn't be able to do that in Toronto, because the per-hour rate wouldn't be as high.) The third day's a killer, but it's worth it to get the day-job over with all at once. Allan is submitting a book proposal soon, and three days a week will leave him lots of time to
This job has decent pay and good benefits, but there are some strange hours. I always say that we were intent on living near the Lakeshore Line GO trains, because it's the only line that runs all day and on weekends, and we were sure our day-jobs would have unconventional hours. Unfortunately, Allan's hours will be so unconventional that there won't be any trains at all. He'll get out too late, the trains will have stopped running.
So he'll be driving to work after all. The firm pays for parking, and there won't be any real traffic at that hour, so I think it will be fine. But still, it's funny how you can't plan things too precisely. At the same time, it's our desire to be on the Lakeshore Line that brought us to Port Credit, and our house. Lucky, that.
Major leaf-raking this weekend, plus other household chores. No exploring planned, that's probably on hold until Allan settles in on his new job. Training days + regular hours = lots and lots of work for a while.
Have greet weekends, everybody!
