In my family, there aren't anybody on such a job. Personally, I don't like such jobs, and I steer clear of them. I want some time for myself, my family, my pets, my books, and my garden. Life is not just a job. :) Cheers and happy mylotting

may be you are right and pampered but a person who has chosen her career in the job has to put in her best foot forward and can not afford to be lazy or relaxing!! well good luck to you!! happy mylotting!!

I am not pampered. I am earning my own living and I am not dependent financially on anybody. And I am certainly not lazy. Currently, I am balancing around five projects, keeping five clients satisfied plus managing my home, my garden, and my pets. I am busy from the minute I wake up to the minute I go to bed. Living differently doesn't mean that I am pampered or lazy. I simply don't prefer a job that keeps me away from my home. Cheers!

We are very lucky here that no one in our family is in a business or job that is quite that frantic. I have a brother and brother-in-law who fly for a week or two several times a year to other states and countries for business, but not on a weekly basis! As long as she enjoys it, good for her. Would get pretty stressful otherwise I would think. Good luck to her!

Things should be really hectic for her. This is not the case with my family :) My mom is a homemaker,my dad leaves for work in the mornings and gets back home about 8pm in the evenings. But in this fast moving world,we tend to work like this because our career and future demands it. Neeways,convey my regards to your sister. I'm sure you'll enjoy you weekends to the max :) Cheers :)

Not my family. We pretty much are all laid back for the time being. But busy times are headed our way I can tell.

Hello Juhi! My brother used to work in an organization which required him to fly to Jaipur(from our city, Delhi) in the morning, work there for entire day and then fly back to Delhi in the evening. This used to go on for at least 3 days a week and the destinations kept chaging from Jaipur to Kolkata to Bangalore to Chandigarh. Finally he left it and he's now settled nicely, living with all of us here in Delhi itself, all 7 days of the week :)
