so who else is burnin' the midnight oil?

  1. I'm up, I can't sleep, and it's the ONLY thing I wanna do right now! I'm off tomorrow and have all these things on my "to do" list. I'm normally a night owl, but for some reason it's really buggin me tonight. Go figure. I wouldn't want to work 0700-1900 on a regular basis, but right now I'm feeling frustrated that I don't fit the "normal" times like a M-F 9-5 job (that I KNOW would drive me nuts within the first week) and yet some days, like now, I really wish I had a normal schedule just so I'd be more "with it" to even go out to lunch with friends. By the time I wake up, lunch is long gone! Oiy. I'm tired and frustrated right now and just want to sleep but can't. O bother. I'm just wallowing in self pity right now for the schedule choice that I chose for myself yet isn't always conducive to a normal social life.

    Yeah, my schedule this week really sucked. I worked Mon night, off Tues, on now, off Thurs, back Fri-Sat-Sun. I really wanted to go to sleep at night but my body just wouldn't let me. So, I did some homework (on BSN) and read till I was bleary-eyed. Finally went to sleep at 0430.:roll
    Then, too, I couldn't drum up enough energy to do errands (like laundry and groceries) cuz I know I had to go back to work. So, I feel 'ya, pressing on!:wink2:
