Starting 3/8 my workday will be changing. In so many ways it will be better. I will get to sleep in later since I will be going in around 7:30 or 8am instead of 4am. That also means I will get to stay up like a big girl at night and not be a wreck by 8pm. At work, the shift in my position will allow more focus on big picture items, which is awesome. I have, though, been quite spoiled by being home by 3 or 4 every afternoon. It has made mealtime with the family very easy. Going forward, it's more likely that I won't be home until 5 or 6, so I am going to need to start planning ahead. We've done so well at cutting fast food and processed foods out of our diet, and I want to make sure the change in schedule doesn't affect that.
I will be doing more OAMC and make ahead meals, plus utilizing hubby to help get things started before I get home.
This week I will be in practice mode. Tomorrow's dinner is cooking in the crockpot tonight. Monday and Tuesday I will be working on the chicken enchiladas and the stock for the chicken noodle soup. Hubby will have the smoker for Saturday's meal fired up on Friday, so I'll be cooking up a storm I'm sure over the weekend for the week ahead.
