I wanted to know if anyone here works every day of the week except shabbos?
Is it hard? How do you find "me" time?

I have, at times. But I never worked more than a few hours on Sunday, so maybe my experience isn't helpful. I don't mind getting out for a few hours on Sunday morning, and then I had the afternoon to take care of stuff. Me time doesn't really happen when kids are awake anyway..

I did it for a few months but then it got too much so I quit my Sunday job. The extra money was nice but I felt like I never caught up to myself.

I used to work 6 days a week 9 - 4 . My children were young and had early bedtime so me time was in the evening . I went swimming once a week and got together with friends sometimes . It was quit hard shopping wise . I did my errands on way home from work . Clothing lots of online ordering. Here and there I took a day off to go shopping .
Friday I only worked half a day so summer time I used to go shopping Friday afternoon

This is one and the same job all of the days of the week.

And you didnt experience burn out very quickly?

I want to do this job, but Im very nervous about burn out.
I will have the evenings free too (my kids are old enough to not need me when they get home from school etc) but just a bit nervous.

I work all weekday mornings, a bit in the afternoons, and 8-4 Sundays.

I think it depends on what you do, how well your family functions without you, your energy levels, and lots more.

It isnt a high power or highly stressful job, just majorly full time (or maybe its even considered over full time)

Do you ever get burn out? How do you manage to get things done like shopping, any appointments you need to go to?

I work Sunday - Thursday 9-4 and Friday 9-12
Im in England.
I do feel I work very hard and I’m doing as much as I can handle.
My kids finish school at 4:15 I use the 5 minute drive to unwind and mentally prepare for them.
Their smiles at the school gate energise me.

It's not easy. I try to multitask whenever possible.

Can you convince them to let you have the position on a trial basis?

I work full time Mon - Fri and recently started working for 3 hours on Sundays. I'm finding it very, very hard, and I may stop soon. Or cut down to every other Sunday. I don't have time for myself, for my kids or to accomplish anything.

Sure I do — I'm self-employed and often work on Motzei Shabbos too.

It helps that I love my work! Heart
