I’m not scheduled to go to work today, but my home to-dos will keep me moving. Next week, I have scattered days off with challenging times to appear at work. Some days I’m scheduled to clock in at 6:00 a.m. I’m to be an early bird in the Garden Department, watering plants.

We’ll see how that may go. For example, I’ll have to leave home around 5:30, and that early, leave the dogs unsupervised outside. They will bark as I start my car and drive off. They will bark if deer roam onto the property. And they will bark for other reasons. Thankfully, I’m scheduled early only a couple of days. And I hope not to hear neighbors complaining of early barking.

Such early entry times and associated animal issues could force me to quit my job. That’s not optimal but wouldn’t end my working life. There are other opportunities. I’m always bombarded with news about open positions, some allowing one to work from home. I struggle with the attractive option of working from home, which offers minimal social opportunities.

Preparing to leave home at 5:30 a.m. means feeding my horses at 4:30 a.m. They’d love that! I’m not eager to go to the barn so early but will try to meet the challenge.

There is another option for I’m a part-time worker. My shift will last for four hours; I can clock out at 10:00 a.m. Maybe the horses could wait for attention, and my dogs could stay inside until I’m again home.

I’ll keep weighing the possibilities before that first very early day arrives.

Dear Friends: Otherwise, I love the idea of working mornings from six to ten; it’ll be over and done! Diana
