So tired

No photo for this post.  I'm working third shift this week in training for work (11pm - 7am).  I've worked this shift before at a hospital on the switchboard weekends after working days at my full time job all week, the hallway to the bathroom reminded me of a Halloween movie and there were some  nights I wished Michael Meyers would come down the hall and end the misery, LOL!

So far so good, its pretty slow between 3-5am - the police radio is silent and there are no 911 calls (or at least that was how it was last night, but I've heard that's the norm).

I woke up this afternoon and felt like I had a hangover ... without the drinking.  Prior to this I was getting up at 6am for day training ... hard switch to make.

I did get some spinning and knitting done yesterday while killing time before working at night.  Hoping tomorrow sleep goes better and I can do some more - today I laid on the couch all day and caught up on tv ... couldn't do much else, hahahah!

I hate shifting my schedule like that - it's so hard on the body!

Working shifts like that IS hard. I have enough trouble falling asleep without changing up the times.

Hope you get through and onto a regular schedule soon. You can't knit with a "sleep hangover".

Your "tired" post shows me you're in a good enough mood to let your good humor show. I had a good laugh, Halloween, Michael Myers, indeed. I'm glad you got to lounge, transitions are tough. Wishing you the best through this one!

Worked nights for nearly 4 years …..oh those awful hangovers. Hope you are back to good shifts soon.

Oh, mercy, that would be really rough for me, too! Even shifting 2-3 hours makes me feel jet-lagged (what I imagine a hangover feels like!)
