Work troubles solved

I have been having some troubles with my schedule at work lately, when I took my permanent position I was ensured that I would work only on certain nights and always after 5 so Hubby could switch off with me when he was done work. Basically he changed his schedule so he would work the 2 nights that I was off, not great for spending time together as a couple but it works for the kids to ensure 1 of us is always with them and they can get to their activities. With the econmic slow down they came to us a few weeks ago and asked if we would take a reduced schedule for a while, after that my schedule was always messed up. I would be scheduled for nights my hubby worked, I would be scheduled for 3 or 4 in the afternoon when hubby would have to get off early or switch days off. Yesterday was the break point when I was scheduled for 3, hubby was going to get off in time but had a conferance call that ran late and he only could get home at 10 to 3, I was late and when I got to work had some discussions with the schedules. We worked things out and I will be back on the nights I need and work a set shift from 6 to 1, which will allow hubby to make it home in time for me to leave for work. It makes it work for the kids but makes it hard for hubby and I, it certainly makes us appreciate each other more and to try to make the most of the little bit of time we have together, yes some late nights for sure but right now it's what we have to do to make things work.

Ug. At least you got things straightened out. When Junior and I were both working, it was hard finding time for just us. But I know you, and you'll find a way to make it work.
