Lol just had to get that out... I can't wait for summer, but when I wake up with "pop goes the weasel" stuck in my head because the ice cream man drove down my street 8 times while I was sleeping, I wake up wanting to "pop" someone in the face!
Anyway... Thanks for letting me vent.

I also work night shift from 3pm-11:30pm, and aside from the fact that I feel like I hardly ever see my FI (who's on 1st shift), people think it's so incredibly strange that I go to bed around 6-7:30 am and wake up around 1:30 pm to get ready for work! And yes, we have a snowball guy that drives through my apartment complex, but thankfully it's during a time when I am already up, so the kiddies in the neighborhood and I are both content!
Ugh, and I also can't wait for the mowers and maintenence guys to start all of their long-awaited summer projects, either! Hopefully, I'll be back on a 1st shift schedule by then!
Hang in there, sleepless lady!

I've chalked it up to nature of the beast. And I've learned between all the outdoor noise, AND the FI snoring in 1 ear AND the cat snoring in the other ear, ear plugs are my best friend!

This is what I have to deal with at work before I get to go home and deal with sleepless days

It's 5:43 a.m. and the damn birds in my area are ready to start "singing their songs of spring!" right now, but I would pay anything just to SHUT THEM UP!

We live across from a middle school, so it's always so darn lovely when the marching band is practicing and playing horridly out of tune music as they march up and down the street and wake me from my slumber I have so many times been tempted to yell "SHUT THE $#?* UP!!!!!" at the top of my lungs, but I don't think that would be an appropriate contribution to the youth, lol.
Oh yes, and how can I forget how I can't sleep past 4 hours during the summers because it's too freaking HOT!!!! I HATE, HATE, HATE waking up sweating and feeling a warm yucky breeze coming through my window.
*sigh* the life of night-shifters ~ we should get a damn award for living like this

1) Never enough sleep attached with dark circles or bags under the eyes
2) The uncanny gift of getting to watch every infommercial known to mankind at unGodly hours
3) A wonderful ensemble of music known as "birds, the band and lawnblowers"
4) And pale skin because we never get enough sun
