    Ditto. Came in at 7 am yesterday, went home for a shower and food at 7 pm for an hour then was back here 'till 1 am. Mind you I can get loads done out of normal hours when the phone ain't ringing and no customers wanting to tell me their life stories!!!

    yeah tell me about it. For this last week (and the next few) I am helping my parents with a bunch of landscaping. This means I get up at 9am... go to their pad at 9:30... work until 12:15, come home, get ready for work... commute... start work at 3pm... work until 11pm... commute and get back home at midnight, sleep at 12:30am. Next day, same thing. doh! :crazy:

    I hope they are paying you a reasonable amount.

    I just got finished with a commercial painting contract. 12 hr days of solid painting, taping, et. Building was not very well ventilated so I walked around all week on a paint high.

    I'd take that over 14 hours in the sunny sun though.
