No Night Owl Here

I’m having issues getting my blogging routine back after starting night shift. I’ve been working nights now for just over two months, and it’s killing me. I need more sleep, people! Some folks love nights; I’m not one of them. I was the girl who always fell asleep first at the slumber party! I love work, but it’s tough knowing that however much sleep I get during the day, I’m going to be exhausted at some point in the night. Sometimes I just want my bed, and it stinks not to be able to have it! I keep myself busy, so I’ll make it. And, there are some things I do like about nights. I really don’t have a problem flipping back to a day schedule after my working nights, so that’s good too. I’m exhausted that first day off though, and it’s hard on both me and Blair. I’m just waiting my turn to move back to days. The move won’t come soon enough, but maybe I’ll get a good writing routine down in the meantime.

I’ve also had a nasty virus on my computer for the last three weeks. I’ve been working on it without any luck. I haven’t been able to do much on my computer because I was scared to use any passwords on it at all. So finally, my brother Hank came home for Thanksgiving and FIXED it!! Yay! I knew he was good for something.

So lets see how I do these next few weeks. I have tons of pictures that need explanations, and I’d like to start blogging about our weeks. I tend to do more of events, but I’d like to do more of a journal to look back at. We’ll see how that goes; it’s tough to sit down and write daily when all I want to do is sleep. We won’t even talk about the mess that is this house. :)

I hope you had a great holiday. We had a lot of fun with our families and ate lots of yummy treats! Pictures to follow… at some point!

I did night shift for 2 years and always felt terrible that first day off (and I didn't have a kid to take care of!). I did my 3 nights in a row (Sun, Mon, Tue). Hope you adjust a bit more's brutal!
