It's Wednesday and I'm wondering what is the highest number of hours you have ever worked in one week?

Hmm. At this job, 58. I worked 7 days straight the weekend after Thanksgiving because a project had to be completely redone and was due on the following Tuesday, and I needed to give the director at least one day to review. It wasn't even my project, but a co-workers, and she had vacation. It literally fell in her lap about 30 minutes before EOD the day before she was to go on vacation. So, nothing she could help, and nothing she could plan around. This is so often the case at work, though. It's feast or famine a lot of the time. And the feast about kills us!! LOL!

It's all good though. Those 18 comp hours go towards my maternity leave. :) Love me some comp time!

You want to hear something sick? When hubby opens hotels, for the first several months he can work 18+ hour days. For weeks straight, and I wish I were lying. And he's salary. I would be dead for sure. On the second day, third at the latest. Blech!

That is a grueling schedule for sure; I hope they appreciate him!

(I would be dead too.)
