It's tough trying to break old habits! I am so used to working nights. I usually go to bed at 6Am and get up at 10-11AM.

Chris, those sound like my hours sometimes LOL. I can't keep my sleep pattern on a day schedule very well so I spend some time here posting lol. I usually get up in two hours from now for work. Might need a nap soon lol. So should we be prepared to see your post count soar like Kenny's?? LOL

It's all good. Who knows doing restorations might just turn into a buisness for me. I know my father keeps trying to convince me to do it. Time will tell :smile1:

If your attention to detail and devotion to quality of workmanship is there, I am sure some rich guy will be happy to overpay for your restoration services LOL.

Working the midnight shift is tough and unnatural. It also is too bad your former employers went overseas.
