The best thing about this new job is that it's only 2 miles (and less than 10 minutes) from home. They have "core hours" at this place; everyone is expected to be around and accessible between 10 am and 4:30 pm. So I get in by 8 am and I can head out at 4:30.

I'm home by 4:45! It's wonderful!

I have never worked so close to home before (well, I've worked from home which is better of course, but...). I've always worked about 40 minutes away. I'd get to work by 9 and leave at 5:30. I'd get home about 6:15.

I can't say getting up at 6:45 is delightful but getting home before 5 is definitely worth it. And, in the summer, I'm likely to wake up sometime between 6 and 6:30 on my own.
