Surviving Shift Work; for spouses only. 

Do you friends think you are happily married but you actually feel like a lonely single mom/dad?  Do you find arguments growing out of exhaustion or days pass when you don’t actually speak to each other?  Shift work can take away from your relationships, family time, and the partnership you dreamed of but there are things you can do to build a successful happy marriage and invest in the life you imagined.  Come out and share your expertise in scheduling for success, creating an environment for sleep, how to handle the “hard shifts”, creating a family/work balance, making time for friends and mental health.
