# On the work week
I am at work now, on my lunch hour. It is almost over and I haven't a lot of time. I work an 8&6 schedule (eight days on, six d
ays off), but I always work an extra day (9&5). Then on day ten I always use a vacation day. Every other week, all year long. A
normal two week period is: 72 hours worked on week one, 36 hours worked on week two (paid 44 hours due to the vacation day). 1
16 hours per check is a decrease. Before I left the field, I worked that in a one week period. Two weeks on, one week off. I bl
ame my big white beard at 42 years of age on having put in this much work. At least now, having an office, I am out of the weat
her, and I do not miss out on so much at home.
Oh well, back to it...
