The End is in Sight!

I see the light at the end of the tunnel!

Even though my feet are killing me and I feel like I’m practically sleep walking at times from working so many days in a row, it’s going to be worth it at this time tomorrow.   My weekend of hell is almost over!  Tomorrow at this time I will be heading to bed to begin my four days off!!

But for now I need to give Izzy her walk and then get myself in bed so I can be ready for my last night on.

I was thinking this morning…

I honestly don’t know what it would be like to work 8 hour days anymore.

My body is so used to 12 hours at a time, during the night, that it would seem strange to do anything else.  I guess I would feel like I was working EVERY day.  Which I would be.  I definitely do like the 36 hour work week.  However, sometimes when my days on all fall together, it seems like I’m working 72 hours all at once!

I know three days in a row probably doesn’t seem like many (heck most people work five in a row!) but I just have to clarify that when I leave for work it is 6:10 pm and I generally don’t get back from work the next day until about 7:45 am…so we are talking about 13 and 1/2 hours and that doesn’t even count the time it takes me to get ready for work.  Those are long days.

But the days off really make up for it!  I can’t wait for tomorrow!
