Default 17 day workweek

I have yet to take a day off since december. 12 hour days almost every day

I'm exhausted. In idaho, over 40 hours a week is overtime, 56 and over is doubletime. Either way, I get a break tomorrow to go to Utah to get the leg checked on.

I think it was worth it though. I gotta make up for the 2 months I was gone somehow I guess.

I work more than potato farmers during harvest season..thats pretty sad.

Wait.....I thought you were a potato farmer j/k :P

I know all about long hours, the key is always getting a good nights sleep. But eventually we all need a day off eh

If I got paid hourly I'd love to work 12 hour days at my job. lol At my last design job I HAD to work overtime to make ANY money.

The longest I worked without a day of was 14 days. And that was busy, hands-on, stressful, PITA work.
