This is a major problem for me, and it's going to be the biggest factor in deciding whether I want to stay in this industry. The work I do is very exciting, interesting and personally fulfilling, but it also doesn't really *stop*. I easily work at least 60 hours a week, and in a few weeks, that will balloon even higher. Even when I'm at home, I'm expected to be near a cell phone and to be available if something happens. News breaks all the time, after all. Not just from 9-6. It has hurt me in lots of ways, since I haven't been able to do as many things as I'd like with my church, wife and other friend groups, especially since I moved to this city for the job and didn't have a ton of other friends when I got here. Now that my baby is due, my ability to sustain this kind of work is in peril. I'm an ambitious person, but also due to the financial realities of living where I do (and my industry), I don't have the luxury of not trying to push ahead. If I don't, I'll be let go. My boss probably works even longer than I do, and somewhat resents that I can't, because of family obligations. I don't know anybody else who does what I do that has a kid. I wish I knew a good solution, because this isn't healthy for anybody. I did my best work this year after my vacation, after I had time to unplug.
