with Avi Spivack
Hi, I'm Avi, and I try to put the work and the dad together, with mild success. This is all about trying to give you a view from what it looks like on the dad-man's side of the world, and I hope you find my ruminations humorous because I try not to take myself too seriously.
Let’s go through my day today, a typical Monday, to determine if I am spending my time in a meaningful way…
8:15am: bring kiddo to school; she is sooooo happy to get into that classroom, at least I know why we paid so much to live in a good school district
8:30am: drive to work, add to global warming epidemic (Sorry, Al Gore)
9am: arrive at work, Starbucks run (yes, already, before I even sit down at my desk)
9:30am - 1:30pm: “one-on-one” meetings, multiple phone calls, conference calls, and a lot of writing down of notes that I will never again reference
1:30 - 2:30pm: lunch = salad with chicken while “recruiting” a friend and ex-colleague to come and work for me
2:30 - 5:15pm: more meeting-calls, document writing, and the like (10-minute conversation with colleague about recent sporting events, including the NFL draft)
5:15pm: rush home to meet the carpet salesman so he can tell me how much it will cost to replace the water and mold-damaged carpet that I had to dispose of
6 - 6:20pm: watch my daughter eat dinner, laid out by my mother-in-law (while the carpet man finishes the contracts and makes jokes with my daughter)
6:20 - 6:40p: Play Zingo with my daughter (best 20 minutes of my day)
7pm: early bedtime for the kid, now that vaca time is over
7pm - present: laundry, more work, phone call with a friend…
and those 20 minutes made it all worth it (even though I didn’t win - but we did tie!).
How was your day?
