So I've been doing this night shift for just over a week now. I've noticed a few things: I've been leaving work in a good mood. I'm exhausted, but I haven't felt angry, stressed, or left crying. I've been leaving work happy. Don't know if it's the change in the level or work, or I'm just happy to get the heck out of Dodge. I'm also only working 4 nights per week. I know it's going to put a hit on the paycheck, but with the shift differential, it won't hurt as bad. I figure if I need to pick up more hours later I could.

I'm tired though. I knew I would be. This shift messes with your sleep patterns. I've been falling asleep fairly quickly, waking up about 5 hours later on my own. I've been waking up in with my mind in a good place. Mind you, this only lasts for a couple hours, but it's an improvement.

I have plenty of time between getting up for my day and actually going to work. I just need to get into a pattern of getting moving and doing stuff around here. I'm hoping that when my daughter gets home, we fall into some sort of routine.

I'm also excited because my daughter finally comes back from Cali tonight. I'm going to pick her up from the airport. I don't need to as her father and his family is also flying out. This is the only time before Christmas I get to see her. I'm actually so excited to see her tonight that I'm surprised I got any sleep at all today.

So, that's me this week. Hope everyone is have a great week and that your Holidays are wonderful!

Made it through my fist full week of night shift. Doing this shift for the less stress of work and with the extra pay an hour, I can work few days. I know I'll be tired all the time, but I can also be home while the Bug is home doing school work.

Hope this sees everyone well and you all have a wonderful weekend.

So it looks like I've finally given up on LJ. (I mean, I'm trying to give up the LJ, but I just can't see to let it go) Maybe I'll keep it around for archiving reasons though I don't know why anyone would give a poo about my life.

So I'm thinking (still) that I need some kind of journal. So I'm going to try and use this for that purpose. I welcome comments and new readers to my messed up world.

So I think I'm going to start and try to get back into the journaling. Maybe I can keep what sanity I have left. And I may start feeling better in the process.

Hope to catch up on stuff I may have missed. Hope everyone is well.

Bug made dinner tonight with very little help from me. Parmesan salmon, baby carrots and cous cous.

Rock on little head!

just doing the testing page.

I'm going to be playing with this from time to time and adding a few folks that I follow on LJ. Hope no one minds.

If anyone has any suggestions on how to better run this, fire away.
