SO GLAD to know it isn’t just me. I think my boyfriend thinks I’m exaggerating about how difficult it is to me and how my brain is basically mush on the weekends bc all I’m doing is processing and decompressing the qhole week for 48 hours.

I do always go for a walk during the day. I’m hoping she will understand and be flexible about my days when I ask her soon. She’s flexible about work hours — I have trouble being on time and taking public transit only makes it worse, so sometimes I will start my work day at home and come in around 10 instead of 9. Or she will let me leave a little early if I’m looking antsy.

What do you do when you take a half day? Do you make the hours up at home or on another day? How did you approach the subject with your boss?
