Got Through and Now Here We Go Again

I made it through the first week of my new work schedule, and the adjustment is still going on.  I wasn’t able to get anything done creatively until this weekend and now I find out, I have to remain on this schedule for another week – maybe more.

I am experimenting with how late I can stay up and still be able to function in the morning.  I am not a morning person so this is difficult enough even fully rested. I am trying to adjust though.

You may be wondering what the big deal is.  People do 9-5 or 8-4 all the time.  I never have.  Even as a teen,  I worked mid shifts or night shifts.  I didn’t mind it.  Working those shifts, along with weekends, meant more money for me and my family.  After I got out of school, I stopped having to get up early except to see my children off to school then it was back to bed for a few hours.

This shift is totally new to me, and I’m having to learn a new time management routine in order to get things done.  Right now, I’m leaving things for the weekend, but that’s not enough time for everything I need to do – especially my writing.

Well, I have to get to bed now.  Another week on this new schedule – all I can say is “Here we go again.”

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel!
