Talk about changes at work! Yesterday afternoon, they gave us the choice of switching from 5 eight hour shifts to 4 ten's. I am still really surprised they are giving us this option. I have thought about it and I am going to try it! I am still very nervous about doing this. I love my schedule right now, 7:00 to 3:30 Monday thru Friday. After getting off work, I have time to go to the bank, grocery shopping and cook a pretty involved dinner and still have tons of time left to relax in the evening. Now I will be working from 6:30 to 5:00 and taking Friday off. The days are going to be long and I wonder if it will be worth it to have that extra day off of work. Let's take a look at the pros and cons.

Longer work day
Get up earlier
In the winter go to work in the dark and leave when it's dark
Less time to cook dinner

Extra day off
Easier to make doctor's appointments
3 days to sleep in instead of 2

I think the pro's out weigh the cons. If I don't like it, I am able to switch back so I shouldn't be nervous, but I still am. The proposed start date would be in 2 weeks! I'll update once we start!

I love how you're taking a chance on change! I hope it all works out for the better. Sounds super nice to have the option :) good luck!

I'd take the extra day to sleep in! Once you guys make babies, you'll forever miss sleeping in!

I am always trying to convince my boss to let me work 4 tens, at least you still get off at 5:00, you will still have time to cook dinner and everything, it would be harder if you worked 7:30 - 6:00.

an extra day off! That is pretty cool and worth it to try a new schedule.
