Night Shift

Recommended Posts

Any other night shifters out there? I'm getting frustrated right now because it's spring... Warm weather, earlier sunrises, people outside enjoying their days... I'm trying to sleep people! You don't see me out cutting the grass at 2am why must you get up and cut yours at 9am when I'm trying to sleep!?

 

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. fryingpan.gif

Awww that sucks! Never been a night shifter but I have worked swing shift in the past. My FI is working from home right now and he pulls some pretty late hours, and I think he is ready to throttle the leafblower guy at our complex!

Have you tried earplugs?

 

I use to work nights shifts...loooongggg ago. But I would be so exhausted I wouldn't hear a thing until I would just wake up after a few hours sleep.

Know EXACTLY where you are coming from, Bobbysgirl!

 

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!

Oh sweetie, I SOOO know what you mean!!! I get home around 4am, so by the time I actually go to bed the lawn guys are mowing, the kids are running around screaming, oh lets not forget last fall when they where putting the new roof on our townhouse!!

 

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!

I wish ear plugs worked! I've tried everything! I've been on nights for over 3 years so i'm used to it, I really think I have the busiest ice cream man route in our city though. I mean its April for crying out loud, the forecast called for snow tonight, and the guys still drove down our street 3 times before 1pm when I woke up... censored.gif

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

Preachin' to the choir, sista!

 

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!

 

Sleeplessness continuing....

Oh ladies, I so feel your pain BangHead.gif

 

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 girl_werewolf.gif 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. rolleyes.gif

 

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 shots.gif

Sadly no we don't get awards.........no actually wait, but we do get presents:

 

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

    • We just had a destination wedding and both my girls were flower girls!  The dresses from princessly were perfect!  Lots of complements! Would definitely recommend them!  Very reasonably priced.
    • I just want to say I got the best flower girl dresses on Princessly. It was very reasonably priced, they customized the dress to fit my daughter and it came within a couple of weeks. My daughter looked amazing and so did her cousin (who also wore the dress). The company was so easy to deal with and I’m so happy I chose them! Here are a couple of pics! 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
