    My work varies a lot! Some weeks, I put in around 25 hrs. others, closer to 40. During the summer I only have to be on campus two days a week but I also teach an online class. So it’s hard to pinpoint an average.

    I work about 70 hrs a week and planning a wedding has nearly killed me.  I’m looking forward to the month off I’m taking for the wedding!!!  lol

    But, once I get back, I’m traveling 2 weeks out of every month for the next year.  I suppose its life.  lol

    50-60 hours a week is on par with most of my friends. I only work 40 but i start grad school, gulp, Monday.

    You could always offload some of that housework to your husband! Or hire someone to come clean for you.

    Officially I work 40 hours a week but I usually end up staying late because it’s pretty impossible to meet all the numbers we have to meet in a 40 hour week.

    I use to work 80+ hours a week when I was single, childless, and lived at home. I was a server making an average of $600-$700/week in tips. The money was great, but I didn’t have time to myself. It was starting to take a toll on my body. After 7 years of serving, I took an office job which was actually a paycut because I started to pay for insurance, 401k, and got raped in taxes. **sighs** I sometimes play around with the idea of going back to serving on the weekends.

    I work 40 hours a week (well 80 over 2 weeks, I flex so I get a day off every other week) but I am starting up school again which will be an additional 6 hours a week plus homework time.

    I usually work between 30-40 hours a week, depending.  I haven’t been in two weeks so I am kind of dreading going back…

    When I was wedding planning I was in school almost full time and was working about 30 hours a week and it also nearly killed me!  It all had to be done, though, so lots of times housework and cooking got put on the back burner.  Is there anyway for you to work less or to get help around the house either from your Fiance or by hiring someone to do your housework?

    @Miss Tattoo:I, too, used to wait tables and now work a desk job. I swear I made a lot more serving. If it wasn’t so “frowned upon” to have a college graduate wait tables, I would chose to do that over my desk job anyday! I miss my serving job! The money was Fab – U – LESS

    @MlleBrielle: Preach! I would seriously quit my stuffy job to serve again if I didn’t need insurance. Ugh! And it’s pointless getting insurance through your serving job because you always end up paying the employer on paydays! 

    I’m seriously toying with the idea. Seriously. It would be extra money for the wedding.
