    lost time

    Are these sentences correct?

    I am supposed to work Monday to Wednesday every week. However, the first week of March I need to take time off on Wednesday so I plan to work Monday and Tuesday that week. To make up for the "lost" time, I will work 4 days this week Monday to Thursday.

    Re: lost time

    Yes.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    Re: lost time

    Or you can say "To make up for the time off, ..." or even just "To make up the time, ..."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
