The Most I have worked in a Row in My Life..

Hi all. I have worked every day since last Tuesday. That makes eight days in a row tonight when I go in for my regular scheduled night. I have been called in on all my days off and I have said yes. But now I am feeling wore out. I have to work tonight and then tomorrow and have Thursday off. I am exhausted from all this work. Jeff thinks its easy working my job. I wish he could try it plus taking care of the house. I was in the process of cleaning house yesterday when I got called in and I had to wait till today to finish my cleaning.

Dont think I am complaining but it takes alot out of me. My hands and wrists hurt from dealing with the fryer. I would love to call in tonight and just take a break and just have some family time. My girls miss me but I dont feel that I can do that right now. I just dont want to burn out. We are missing one of our over night managers because we think he got another job some place else and just hasnt told McDonalds yet. And then we have one girl that got fired. She was pregnant and had Herniated Disks or something like that and she could only work a few nights a week and half the time she would call in when she was scheduled so we let her go.

But nine days in a row with out a day off. My choice. Just look at my next paycheck.. Yayyy.. We could still use the money. I just paid a huge utility bill yesterday. But at least its caught up before winter gets here. Jeff has it figured we should be caught up by the end of next month finally. Yayyy...

Well I need to go finish laundry and do a load with my work clothes in it or I wont have any work clothes tonight. I am working from 9 PM to 4 AM.. Talk to you all tomorrow sometime..

Glad to hear that the money's coming in handy and you're catching up on bills. Always a good feeling isn't it? Just make sure that you don't get so worn out that you get sick, then you'll be no good to anyone: work, family, yourself. It's ok to take a day off and sometimes you just have to say no :)

I'd be exhausted too. I'd be exhausted working just one shift at that time of the night then taking care of the house and kids during the day. Good for you sticking to it but don't let them walk all over you. See if you can get a couple days in a row off to recuperate.

Tweetey, don't let Ronald McDonald take advantage of you. He likes to work his workers into the ground, until they can't work no more. Then he throws them out, and hires fresh bodies.

All we're saying, is remember to look out for you and your family's interests, not McDonald's interests.

Congratulation, you're soo good, a solid little soldier, but listen to Ortho, take care of yourself too, your family, your daughters need you, the paycheck is nice, true, but your own health is as important as money.

Congrats for doing what is necessary to keep up with things! That's the pioneer spirit that made us a great nation! Hang in there and do the best you can and before long you'll be saying,"We made it on our own and owe no one! It's a great feeling!

Tough that job of yours, It is difficult juggling so much but money should be rewarding enough. The worst part is that you can't have a routine. Keep it up, think ho wonderful christmas will be this year.
