In the following table, colored items happen every week. Uncolored items happen only some weeks but not others. Because of my kids, I'm on an early schedule: typically at Siebel by 8:30, often gone late afternoon. Pink times towards the end of the day involve child transport. So I may be able to free them with advance notice.
