Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

big night...

...tonight is my big debut on "the night shift" weekend.

i will be heading into work with little to no sleep tonight which will be pretty normal for my first night. being all day shift and having a relatively normal sleep schedule makes it a little rough to make the switch.

for those of you who will be up roaming around during the night tonight...say a prayer that i don't fall over at work tonight.

then i have the challenge of coming home on a saturday (with multiple teenagers in the house) and trying to sleep enough to be able to do another all nighter.

then after the second night and coming home on sunday morning--my normal schedule will be back to working day shift early monday morning. (for obvious reasons this week i took monday as a vacation day-i am getting too old for this).

it has been awhile since i have worked the night-shift and i am a little nervous. i know how hard it can be when you don't have enough sleep and you have to try and sit in front of a microscope and count blood cells for hours. (hopefully i won't come home with a black eye from falling over into the scope)

and to top off the whole experience this new weekend crew is having a party...i get to eat homemade pepperoni rolls at 3am...not a food that i would usually think about eating when i have to get up at 3am to go to the bathroom nor is it an approved diet food...but it is my NEW CREW that i have to work with every third weekend for the next 8 years or so...eventually i will let them know that i am on a diet but for now...lets just get through the weekend.

you know what they say..."when in rome" (make sure you bring the tums and plan on "walking" some more).

well...i had best get the girls up for school.

have a wonderful day.

thanks for checking in


ps..say a prayer for ash today. her ovarian cyst is acting up again and she has had a really rough week. had to miss some more school. she may try to go in for a little bit today.
