Seventy two. The number of the week.
It is the number of hours I am scheduled for at work this week. This works out to six shifts, each one lasting for twelve hours.
My normal week consists of a 42 hour week. One six hour stint, then three twelve hour shifts. So the 72 hour schedule is really not so bad all things considered. Two days off become days on, and then my 1/2 day becomes a full day. That is all it takes.
And I also get an extra 30 hours of overtime. This is nice.
Things at work are starting to come together. Operations are still not at 100%, but they will be soon. There will be more opportunities for overtime. I do not know for how much longer, but they will be there at least for the short term. So I suppose Ill grab it while I can get it. Strike while the iron is hot. And so on.
It will be a long week, but a good week.
