Most of my life has been spent in a self-employed environment – between my parents owning a construction company and starting my own consulting business in 2006, I’m used to having a very independent work schedule that is a torturous combination of “never at work, always at work.” Sure, I can choose my hours as I please… but when a client’s website crashes, the choice is kind of made for you.
My husband, on the other hand, has his life’s schedule dictated by a tour. He doesn’t get to choose much of anything. Someone else is deciding when and where he eats, sleeps, and has time off.
