    I'm glad you can have a "normal" work week. Your previous conditions were tough!

    Congrats!

    (My DH pulls a lot of 16 hour shifts, as forced OT....generally 7 days in a row, 8 hours a day, with 2 or 3 16 hours....rotating shifts of course.
    He is living in dread of the next training, which is 4 months of M-F 8-4...he HATES that shift!! LOL)

    My hubby works a 10 hour shift some days and 12 others, with some overtime thrown in, but he is 4 days on, 4 days off. THAT is a sweet gig. Take 4 days vacation and get 12 days off!

    How exciting :thumbup:

    Those shifts would have done me in long ago :shock: I don't understand how companies expect people to work 10-12 or 16 hour shifts :hunf:

    cograt!!!! I know the feeling. They make us work some 16 hour shifts, and they kick my butt. I am tired for days. So I am happy yours is over.

    CK,
    So happy to hear that!! I know when I started my employment hubby worked 7-3 and I worked 8-4 but we worked right across the sidewalk from each other so I would go in early and he would stay late so we were out of the house from 6 am through 5 pm M-F. Finally my boss told me if you want to work 7-3 go ahead and so that is what I did! He has since changed jobs but I still do the M-F 7-3 an hour from home :-)
    I am happy to hear you are getting a life back!!
    Hugs
    April
