Yep. BTDT. I worked compressed weekends for 2 years (7a-11p on Saturday & Sunday) while doing my BSN. Not fun but do-able. I still marvel at the fact that I didn't have a single 'day off' for 24 months. You do what you gotta do. I couldn't have done it without my hubs... he stepped up big time to keep everything rolling along, including our 2 pre-schoolers.
