A bit more work life balance
I was thinking to myself that I lost my frugal mojo today. I'll tell you why!
On Saturday Fahed starts his swimming teaching work at 8am, in the water the whole time He breaks for an hour a 2. And the. Goes back for up to four more lessons.
I took him down a picnic lunch and ate with him in his break. He looked so tired I wasn't sure he was safe to teach in the water for another four lessons. And then it didn't matter as not one of the students turned up.
So I thought I might suggest to him that he stops at 2pm. I know six hours is a really short day but I suspect 6 hours teaching in cold water is quite tiring. I am guessing this based on the fact that he came home and went to bed, missing his voluntary work, and I expect him to sleep until I wake him in the morning.
So not very frugal? But surely this is why I am careful with my money in the first place? So that I can say to him that's enough, we can stop now. I very much like it when he has the energy to stay awake when I am home sometimes. He has a heart condition and whole bunch of others stuff and I like to keep him as long as I can.
I think this is a reasonable addition to my work life balance plan. I can't actually tell him though as he is sound asleep still. Bless!
