Re: great day.........

I definitely think it has gotten to the point where you do spend more time at work than you do with family. Sure, you can spend more time with your wife and what not, however your kids do not stay up late so if yo work till 5, drive till 530/600 due to traffic...when you get home you're only looking at ~3 hours of time with your kids assuming a "late" bedtime of 9 pm.

Weekends are way too short and I fully agree that we should be able to work 4 day work weeks and/or do more telecommuting, specially those of us that are in the computer field. I can write code better at home than I can in an office.

Re: great day.........

Amen brother,I took a long deserved family day on tues. Ive been workin 12 to 14 hour days for the past 6 weeks (26 straight days last month) due to being understaffed.That one family day made me realize how much I have missed of my 16month old sons learning process.

Re: great day.........

3:52 pm here in Austin Tx.This site needs a chat box.The club I belong to here in austin (centraltexasstangs.com) has a chat box so we can get instant responses and just chat from the house.That would be a great addition here as long as it is monitored.

I don't have a family.. Yet! But the company I work for is a great one, every other week is a 4 day work week - can't argue that! Though even the 3 day weekends fly by.

Just imagine the homes where both man and wife work til 5, commute 5:30-6, with kids going to bed by 9...


Enjoy the snow and the time with your family!

Re: great day.........

You sure? I have plenty of family I promise I wont miss them
But in all seriousness I wouldn't change my family for anything, family is very important to me always been there for me.

Then I guess I just hate the English
No offense to our English members such as EnglishPaul
