Survived the storm
Well, I had one day off from the blizzard. It was a nice break in the middle of the week. I worked 12 hours on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday then another 8 on Friday. About halfway through Friday my boss came over and asked if I was interested in working Saturday. Ummmmmm NO, I am not. I have been pulling between 50 and 60 hour weeks for months , because of the snow day I only had 44 hours this week. Apparently, we have been flooded with orders, which is a good thing, but I refuse to put in 70+ hours a week. It is not as if I have a sit down job. It is very physical and I really don't want to work myself into an early grave. Maybe it is time to hire on a second shift crew for this area.
