We lost several journeymen to early retirement buyouts. To fill gaps, I will work day shift (temporarily) until management gets things figured out.
It will more than likely lead to dayshift permanantly since I'm due to go to 1st anyway.
I will finally get to see the kids and wife in the evening, but my time on TW will dwindle drastically.
The office/control room I'm in is empty on 2nd, but will be heavily traveled during dayshift, leading to more people monitoring my activity. And since I live in the boon-docks, TW at home on dial up is too slow.
Weekends might give me more time to check in due to less traffic in this control room.
There will be many 12 hour days for us since we are short handed, so some days I will work until 7pm, which might also give some time to check in.
I'm ecstatic folks!!!! I miss my little 9 year olds soooooooo bad. They leave me heart wrenching notes all the time wanting me to tuck them in at night like I always used to. I miss my wife so very much too.....as my profile says, they are my life!!
You all are my family too. Thanks for the help and entertainment to make some slow nights pass by quickly.
Still see ya 'round some......Ben Benita Nicholas Kaitlin
