@coffeegal85:  I think that is completely appropriate. Setting boundries is super important, especially at a time like this.

Does your limiting your hours mean someone else will have to pick up the slack and work extra, or does it just affect you?

If the former, I’d say it’s a little unreasonable, but if no one else has to cover the times you’re not working I say go for it 🙂

@coffeegal85:  Oh, if it’s not really your work and you’re just “helping out” that’s different and probably good to draw those boundaries anyway.

My husband’s work rotates Saturdays and if someone were to refuse to work those days, he’d be forced to work those days more often to make up for their absence, which I don’t think is fair. So that’s what I was coming from, but it doesn’t appear to be the case for you!

I think that is perfectly reasonable, and it’s good to set boundaries regarding after-hours availability if it’s not part of your regular work schedule. 

I’m taking 3 weeks off for my wedding, and because I’m an attorney with court deadlines that are not flexible, a lot of my work will have to be reassigned.  That’s just the way it works – sometimes I take reassignments from others, sometimes they have to take reassignments from me.  No guilt here!!!

Shew…I was feeling bad for telling the girls that I couldn’t work this Saturday because it is the weekend before the wedding.  I’m glad that I am not the only one.
