  • deffinatley the 3-11
    after working over night myself I know what a toll it takes on your body, the first while it is fine because I'm an insomniac, but after a while of it I was burnt out, had to work all night, come home catch up on sleep in my families Prime time of day, and then wake up for but a few hours, maybe more, to play, talk, do something, etc before I had to put my son to bed and I lost out on so much time then.

    Working overnight is like this. give one hour before shift to get ready and get there, 1 hour to get home and settle in
    so 11-7a turns into 10p-8a....then preferably 6-8 hours of sleep since body clock is being by 2-4p your up....then family is back in bed at 9 or so maybe 10...leaving very little time for the self and to really get anything else done.

  • the 3-11. My hubby works 12 am to 9 am, & I hate not having him here at night... if i could get away with it, Id like him to work the first shift.. but alas I can't....

    I hate sleeping alone & Just being alone at night......durning the day I can handle being alone...

    but at night. I can't.

  • 3-11... That way he doesn't feel the need to sleep all day!
