Hello. It’s Belinda.
It’s kind of a risk for me to write about this but here goes.
Rabbits keep asking me about my daily schedule. I guess they’re just curious about what a spokesrabbit does at work.
I have nothing to hide. But I don’t want to mess up a good thing with my agent or Mr. Gordon.
The thing is, when I took this job, I assumed I would spend most of the day eating. Instead I spend hours on the computer or in meetings.
That’s fine with me. I like my job a lot, especially since I get to work from home. Every day is different, which keeps it interesting.
But it makes it hard to say “what I do all day.” Because it depends on my deadlines and projects. Some days are non-stop.
So, I decided to keep a log so I would remember where the time went. Also, so my managers could see why I miss meetings. It isn’t just the time zone confusion—it’s having too much on my plate.
Here’s my log from Tuesday:
Wake up. Get myself together. Look for leftovers to tide me over until my roommate wakes up. Poke through yesterday’s hay.
Breakfast with roommate, boyfriend’s companion and the English in the kitchen (behind fence).
First hay. Second- and third-cut timothy.
Check Small Pet Select Facebook page. Write back to friends who left nice messages.
Take a look at some other Facebook pages (for research). See what Dusty Bunneh is up to. Visit Lennon the Bunny, Alice's Adventures In Bunderland, Wally and Molly and Ludwik Guinea Pig.
Conference call with agent and team. Topic: Product development. Some big things are coming. That’s all I’m allowed to say.
Second hay. Plate of Flower Power Berry Boost.
Under steps. Read reports from the technology team about the email situation. Worry that my friends aren’t getting my Sunday blogs.
Try out samples from new healthy snacker “test batch.” Order more samples. Facebook.
2 to 4:30 p.m.
Half-nap in kitchen.
Back under steps for a chew and to review drafts from Abigail. One cliff-hanger after the next and I’ll leave it at that. “No spoilers.”
More Facebook meetings and research.
New hay. Orchard medley with a pinch of alfalfa from my stash.
6 to 8 p.m.
Relax with roommate. Watch my shows (Vegas, Antiques Road Show, The Office).
Dinner in the kitchen. Romaine, parsley, red leaf lettuce. Side of pellets. Pear blueberry healthy snacker for dessert.
Hay refresh. Roommate tucks me in.
Now I know you might be wondering, “Where is the work-life balance?”
Most days are not as hectic as Tuesday. But I work hard every day.
I might not have time logs to prove that. I do have stacks of reports and other business papers in my office under the steps.
I also have alfalfa hay stashed in my office but I’m not saying where. Even though I like working for such a great company, some parts of my day are nobody’s “business” but mine.
