The Work Schedule that used to be Hell

     Well folks, after 14 years I no longer have the "Schedule from Hell".  Starting Jan. 3, 2005 I will be working a Mon-Fri/8 hours per day schedule just like most of the rest of the world.  It will be different from the past 14 years.  Though I am more than willing to give it a try and remember what an 8 hour day feels like again.  Below is the three week schedule that I have had for the past 14 years.  Where most weekends were just another day and work days were 10 hours each.

     After that, you are off until the next Wednesday and then start the three weeks all over again.  So you can see why after 14 years I will be glad to just work Monday-Friday and only 8 hours a day.  Yeah I may miss the days off during the week to get things done you can't always during the weekend.  Though I will be able to do things with my family WITHOUT taking a vacation day, and participate in my hobby a bit more once again.  So I think the trade off will be worth it in the long run.
