I can suggest one thing when I read your post. I was management in the Construction and Engineering field for over 20 years. If you want a life, go to work for a city, county, state or federal organization. The field of Construction and Engineering of Sitework or Buildings in the private sector will always put you in a crisiss situiation. You will always have impossible deadlines to make and Management does not care if they did not bid long enough and will actually tell you that you have less time then they allocated for the project. The bottom line is their only care. When you are management you will always have a boss above you pushing the work and if you go into your own business which I have you will really find out what hours are. I took the 28 years of work I did and added up the hours and divided by 40 hour weeks, then added it to my age at getting out of the service, 22. It came out to to 75 years of 40 hours weeks and I feel like the age it came out to be "97". I missed a lot and that is a question you must make for yourself. If I did it again I would only work 40 hours or close to it a week because being disabled and rather poor now I realize that I did not need only about a 3rd of the paycheck I was making and lost a lot of family time. You can't get it back, so think about it. I know this does not make you probably feel any better but life is to short to make your job your life. It is only a means to make enough money to enjoy the important things you have. Good luck my Friend.
