Make it more like 10am - 9pm.
It has been only two days of "who knows how many" of my new work schedule. Limited equipment during the day has basically forced me to shift my hours in order to get things done. And instead of just leaving instructions for those who work at night, I am required to babysit to make sure things are done right. The experienced people who would not need as much instruction are only available during the day...but again, with no equipment available, I'm stuck!
I'm forced to get as much done as possible in a short period of time causing me to work even longer and subsequently later into the night. It sucks...especially when things on the project I'm working on don't turn out as planned.
But you know what is hands down the crappiest part?? Not seeing The Hubs.
Yesterday, by the time I got home, The Hubs had already left for a late night job walk (It was for Bart, so 10pm - 4am was the only time no trains were running.) This morning, I woke up and left before he got up. Then this evening, I got home and he was already in bed.
My dad works swing shift and my mom always complains about it. I would tell her that it can't be that bad. He's able to get stuff done in the morning that normally wouldn't be able to be done at night. I'm eating my words now because it really can be that bad! It is REALLY hard to get anything accomplished before 10am, especially when gym time is in order!
I'm trying to look on the bright side, but it's difficult.
Do any of you or your spouses have crazy work schedules? How do you deal with it? Can you see any silver lining to this situation?
