    My husband decided to watch shows in our room while I was trying to sleep until 4 am, knowing any light makes it impossible for me to sleep, so I didn't sleep hardly at all. Then our kid woke me up(not him, just me) 4 hours later. It's nearly 12 and my husband is still getting his beauty rest.[/QUOTE]

    Evening friends. Won't be back at work now till next week so indulging in Netflix although I think I've watched everything that interests me. If you have any suggestions for a good series I'm listening...

    Hiya LG, I just stepped in for lunch. I'm painting a bunch of ornamental Metal. Fun change of pace. Just so you know I answered your question about American work habits, hours and pay. I think that was two or three threads ago ! Anyway long story short , I'm self-employed, most of my life. So time and money are big variables in my life. A work week can be anywhere between 10 hours and 60 hours. it all depends on the job and how much money I can make on it. I much prefer 10 billable hours at my top rate. It's easier on my body.

    Hi Paint, I'll seek out your post. I've been self employed for most of my IT career and only in the past three years become an employee again which took some adjusting to. For more than a decade seven day weeks and minimum twelve hour days were the norm but I wouldn't have it any other working for a US based music software company, it was immense fun. The downside of being an employee is all the human resources BS I have to put up with but at the end of the day I'm lucky to have a hobby that people pay me to do and I guess that fits into my workaholic personality.
