What hours do you and your significant other work?

I am a stay-at-home mom, so my hours are 24/7 with no pay! My husband usually works from 7 AM to 5 PM.

  • Have you thought about a part-time home biz to make some extra money? My hubby works 5 - 3(ish) so I started something I could do to help out financially and make my own money. 24/7 without pay wasn't okay with me. Let me know if you would like to know more about what I do. I work when and where I want to.

  • My dh leaves the house around 5:30 a.m. and gets home about 4:30
    I am a stay at home mom, for that I'm always working,lol. But I do also babysit in my home and offer 24 hour care. Sometimes I have other kids, sometimes I don't,
    So I guess basically..that wold make me on -call hours :)

  • Hubby's hours are 9-6 M-F. But since he commutes he leaves at 7am and I don't see him until sometime after 7pm. I am a SAHM.

  • DH is currently home, healing from shoulder surgery, but when he's working, he needs to be there for 8am and gets out 4:30 or later. He usually leaves the house between 5:30 and 7:00(To get his "me" time, I guess). I nanny 2-3 times/week and occasional weekend nights. I do taxes when I'm not nannying. I get to work, whenever my mother is ready to leave her house(I pick her up on the way), and I try to pick my son up by 5:00pm at the latest. All the other times, I'm just mom. :)

  • My husband and I both work days, and with the kids in school, we're all out of the house at the same time! My husband leaves for work around 7AM and is home by 6PM (60 mile commute each way). I work 8:30AM to 3:30PM (teacher). My kids' school bus picks them up at 8:00AM and they get home at 4:00PM.

    Prior to my working as a teacher (new career), I was a SAHM.

  • Hubby works from 7 pm to 7 am for 7 days then has 7 days off. I work from 6 am- 4 pm or from 8 am to 6 pm, three to four days a week but my days are always different. In a few weeks, I will be working 5 days a week with those same hours.

  • We both have our own businesses. I generally work from 7-3, then later in the evenings. His hours vary, based on where he is working.
