Clock-Puncher No Longer

Although my latest resignation was done after careful consideration and discussion with my family and was pre-planned in that I gave my employer plenty of notice (almost two months), it is still a bit odd for me not to commute and punch a clock each morning like I was used to doing five days per week for over four years. I think this blog is one of the coping mechanisms I am using to unpack all my feelings about that change and fill a little bit of the “extra” time I now have. (Since I am a Mom “extra” time is a bit of a joke, but it is time I would normally spend on work tasks, and the urge to be productive is still strong!)

How have you filled your downtime when you have been between jobs?
