Work - work - work

This weekend I'll be working while Justin and the kids are in Pierre camping. It's the annual Meyer camp out. This is the first time I've completely missed it. The first year Justin and I were together (I think) he and I visited there, but if I remember right we both had to work so we didn't get to actually camp.

Starting today I'll be working 4-midnight while I finish training our newest hire. I'll do that all weekend and then again next week. I like the work on the 4-midnight shift, but I don't feel like I get anything else accomplished when I work that shift.

In October I'll be working a bit of a different schedule. I need to continue to work 5 days a week so I came up with this plan. Thankfully my boss okayed it. I was a little leary that she might not, but she did. I'll work Thursday through Sunday from 8am to 4pm. Then on Sunday I'll come back and work midnight to 8. I know that sounds kinda hard, but this way if I want to go to bed at 6pm then I can. This past week was a perfect example of why working Sunday night will be better than Tuesday night. Justin didn't get home until 10pm and I got 45 minutes of sleep. Justin is off on Sundays which will allow me to come home, get supper done, and go to bed. I'll get more sleep than I ever would working any other day. I'll get off work Monday morning at 8am and not go back until Thursday at 8am. It's perfect! I only wish I could start sooner.

I better go get the dishes done before I go to work. Boo-hiss!

I wished you worked more when I'm working too. :-(
