Now, because I don't have set work hours or set days off, dinner is all over the place. Plus, we don't have a dinner table or room to put one. I have been longing for more stability in my home life, but work does not allow for it. I am now looking for a more stable job (I like my job now, just not the schedule). I feel as ny kids get older (I have a 9 & soon to be 2 year old), they need to have a set place and time to talk, a sense of security. I always had that as a kid and look back with fond memories.
