What does the speaker think of her work?
It is difficult to describe her schedule.
She enjoys helping the patients.
She enjoys sleeping late every morning.
It is too complicated to remember.
My daily schedule as a dental hygienist is a little complicated.
That's because it's different everyday.
Monday, I don't go into work until late in the afternoon.
So I have time to spend, most of the day, doing washing of clothes, shopping, and my banking.
I leave for work around four o'clock in the afternoon.
I work from five to nine PM.
Tuesday, I wake up at six thirty AM and leave for work at seven thirty.
My first patient is scheduled for eight fifteen.
Each patient is allotted forty-five minutes.
Lunch break is twelve-thirty to one-thirty.
I finish up at five PM and get home, at around six PM.
Wednesday starts an hour earlier.
I wake up at five-thirty AM, leave for work at six-thirty, and see my first patient at seven AM, I also finish early on Wednesday, at twelve-noon.
Thursday is the same schedule as Tuesday... Getting up at six-thirty AM, leaving for work at seven-thirty, and seeing my first patient at eight-fifteen.
I get home about six PM in the evening.
Friday is another early start.
I wake up at five-thirty AM, leave the house at six thirty and finish up my last patient at three o'clock in the afternoon.
I like to get finished early on Friday.
That is a typical work week for me.
