We'll see you on the next episode of When Employees Attack!!! I did that for a while 7 days a week, nothing wears a person out faster outside of running a marathon.

Just got my hours cut back to 40. I have a lot of time now but too cold to do anything. So I go home and kiss the dogs, kick the girlfriend and pop in a movie.

Paul,
I wont say I really like the 12's but I have gotten use to them. I would much rather have my weekends off each week but you cant have all you want. Blessed to have a good job. I do like the 7 day break that we have each month. Kinda like a vacation (small) each month. But that flies by fast too. The 12 hrs. and time off inbetween weeks is good for me to be able to help my aging parents. I like that. Still my sleep pattern is screwed to the max and I dont ever get enough rest and I hate to have to take something to enable sleep at times. sad.gif

Couple weeks ago my sleep pattern was all screwed up. So tired but couldn't sleep. I hate taking any kind of sleep aids so my gf asked if she could help in any way. I said please just hit me in the head with a hammer. I was almost serious too.

Can relate with you. Nothing worse than being worn out and still cant sleep..I recently started trying zeekquil (probably spelled wrong) in the Nyquil family. I also tried the vitamin melotonan( probably spelled wrong). Both seemed to be helping some since I need to sleep in the day time....My wife would probably use the hammer when I get in those no sleep tired A moods. unsure.gif

When I get bad I might take Alka Seltzer plus night. It works pretty good for me but I usually wake up feeling like *bleep* for a couple hours after. Or I'll watch one of her romantic comedies, that helps!

My work is covered by Federal Hours of Service laws - if I get on the property it counts against the hours of service and decreases my availability to the company.

There's at least one night stalker here! Got a small taste of spring today with a high of 50. Up to 6" of snow tomorrow though to replace what melted off!
