    That is an average since I have extra hospital duties some weeks and weekends.

    Depends. Some weeks may be up to 60 while some may be zero. If I averaged it over 52 weeks it would be 32-34.

    Define work at home.

    I consider running an efficient household work, I am the COO and co-CFO, partner is CEO and co-CFO of home enterprise.  In this definition of work, my breakdown is about 30/30/0.  I maintain household bookkeeping, manage supplies, update calendar, set up meetings, and research, vet and coordinate with all the subcontractors – ie lawn guy, house cleaning services, childcare personnel to make sure they get their paychecks, show up on time and don’t burn down the house.

    I am also the main HR person, who’s responsibilities include maximizing our trainees’ performances in order to meet certain strategic objectives. Gosh, that doesn’t like a tiger parent AT ALL!!!



    Otherwise, 30/0/0

    Since I’m EM… it’s kinda wonky, but if you average it over the month…


    Technically like 30.8/0/0 if you say there’s 4.28 weeks in the month instead of just 4, but now I’m just being pedantic.

    None this week. But then I’m on for 96 hours next week.

    If you averaged my total work hours in a month (7-8 twenty-four hour shifts), say 7.5 shifts of twenty-four hours each over a 4 week month, then it is 45 per week.

    I do a lot of projects at home, but none that bring in any income. Unless I can somehow turn this homemade bacon thing into an industry somehow. That’s just my latest thing I’m doing.

    52/2/4; some of the ‘work’ is ill-defined, like does reading a journal that may or may not count for CME = work?  I tend to view it as work if I don’t the article.  I certainly count doing  external referred reviews and in-house edits as work.
