The proposed schedule will be a 10 hour shift, 4 days working, and 4 days off. So you see it’s not set days every week. Because it’s basically an 8 day schedule, the days I work will rotate every week. This will mean a few weeks of working weekends, and then a few weeks with weekends off. The weekend issue would only really inconvenience time with other family who work regular hours. DH works all weekends and I work some. We already work opposite schedules to avoid child care costs and keep LO home. A lot of friends and family say go for it because it’s like a 4 day vacation every time, but I’m hung up on the fact that on the working days I will be gone for my 10 hour shift, plus 1 hour lunch, and 30 minute commute. That’s a long time to be away from my baby! So, I just wanted to hear from some people who can relate to my situation. How would any of you feel about this work schedule? Any of you already working something like this that thinks it works better?
