DH works for the MD prison system, he was off on tues/wed for the past 5 years. just last month he changed to fri/sat off so he could have time with the girls. since changing his days, he has been "drafted" (mandatoried) to work practically every weekend at least one of the days.
this coming weekend, DH's mom is going to keep the girls overnight (first time! EVER) since we had asked her to watch them sunday afternoon for me to work weird hours (other than my normal)
well i get a text from DH tonight, and he has to work saturday! ahaahahahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was hoping we could have a nice evening alone, no kids, maybe go out and have a few drinks or something. BUT nooooooooo, the DOC thinks they have to have him again!!
don't get me wrong, the money is nice in the end, but ###### it, why is it now that he's off partial weekends do they have to steal him all the time????

I was in tears earlier becasue i was sooooo irritated with it! GEE, guess I'll have some quality "alone" time saturday night!!

I'm so sorry hun, that sucks so bad! When my DH first fought to get his scheduled changed (weekends off too) they ended up asking him to come in those days... And yeah, the paycheck looks great but what's the point if you can't have a relaxing and romantic evening? Is there no way he could get out of it, maybe ask someone else to cover?

((hugs)). I know how you feel. But ususally it is me that is working the funky hours, and its only going to get worse. I am starting a new job in a hospital and they told me i will have a lot of overtime and long hours. But once I am in med school I will never see him. I just wonder if he can handle it. When I would work double shifts he would get upset. By the time I got home he would be asleep and I was gone before he got up. Which sucked. It really does suck when you have plans for the weekend and then you get called into work, story of my life. I have had to get up and leave dinner because I was paged for work. I feel for you girl, keep your head up.
