    Indirect sentence

    "Some asked me today if my mom didn't mind crazy hours".( I still have crazy hours and the asker wants to know if my mom doesn't have any problem with this).

    Is the indirect sentence written above correct?

    Since the crazy hours are yours, it should be "mind my crazy hours".
