    i work for myself so sometimes it's 10 and sometimes it's 60 hours per week.

    what's a princess shift? is that when you go home before the clock strikes midnight?

    48 to 60 depending what's going on, frequently more.

    Its not unheard of to get 84 in a week (a lot of folks off sick, I ended up doing 12 hour shifts all 7 days off the week.... plus a few days after the week, but the question was how many hours in a week, so...)

    Five 8-hour shifts every two weeks, but I pick up 1-2 shifts per week if I want to.

    I cannot imagine having the stamina to pull that off.

    95% of my time at work is spent on my arse infront of a computer.... it's nothing like you folks who are on your feet all day.... plus I'm single with no kids, so it's not a huge deal to not be at home every evening.

    Also, caffeine is my friend.
