Third Shift Life

Superman works third shift and I try to schedule the majority of my life around his schedule, otherwise we would never see each other or sleep in the same bed.  Unfortunately, that means I am awake and alone all night.   Blah!  Is anybody else living a vamps life?

That stinks.

Nope. DH works 8-5......well, supposedly. It ends up being 8-6 (or 7, 8,9.....lol) I'm only up at night when he's gone over night in the tow truck. It sucks!

My DH works nights as well... But my schedule stays the same. He works 5pm to 6am. Week one is M,T off W,Th, Work F,S,S.. However week two is Off M,T, work W, Th and off F,S,and Sun. I also work two nights a week that he is there to watch the kiddos... But his schedule runs M-Su. And mine is W-Tues.. So we have several nights together. :)

 His schedule is 3 on/3 off, but even that is no guarnatee.  I work 2 random shifts every week, so we really can't plan on anything.

 A set schedule in retail?!  How did you get so lucky?  We both work for national retailers and don't get regular schedules.  Superman is salaried management in his store and I am an associate in mine (I didn't find management to be worth the little extra in pay).

Yeah, I guess we are lucky with that. Dh is a purchasing manager and I am a senior sales associate. We both work for small, independent stores.

My dh worked 3rd for years..I think about 7years.. He would leave at around 4:30pm ( had to be there at 6pm) and wasnt home till 7am.. However he did that 3 days a week.. 
For a while it was mon, tue, wed (6 weeks) off the rest and it would rotate..so he was off for an entire week or worked for an  entire week..
I loved it..
