Whistle While You Work

I somehow have survived my first two nights of work. I am working from 10pm to 7 am five days a week. This is usually the exact time that I am in bed so you can imagine how screwed up I am right now. I am trying to stay on schedule even during my nights off, but my bed is calling my name. I just have to stay busy!

Who out there feels the need to go shopping at 2 in the morning? I don't understand this at all. Even if I am not asleep I don't really like to leave the house past 8 unless I am already out. I just don't feel motivated. I guess I can understand if that is the only time you have to shop but what about those people bringing in their kids? Shouldn't they be in bed? My children are in bed by 8 and 9. Even if they weren't I wouldn't be dragging them around town in the middle of the night. I just don't get it.

I have been working the infant department the last three days. Such a dangerous place. Usually if I am just shopping I run in and grab diapers or wipes and go right back out. I don't linger because I know I could be tempted to buy a cute outfit or something. Now imagine working and stocking all of the baby stuff for 8 hours. The temptation is HUGE! I have held off so far but I really want to get some of the cute clothes and toys. Plus it really ticks me off that they have plastic BPA free baby bottles in the stores now, when they didn't 3 months ago when I was buying them for Elaina. I ended up getting glass ones, which I do like, but I would have preferred the plastic. They are much lighter although harder to keep clean. They do have BPA free sippy cups now so I am switching out all of our sippy cups slowly. Keira got brand new Dora cups and LOVES them. She is such a fan.

This is probably the last time I should blog at 1 in the morning. I am rambling. I am just not a night person and this schedule is not my idea of a fun time. I hope that after Christmas we feel better about our finances and I can quit with good conscience. Perhaps I can finally get some piano students. We have a pretty big primary. There must be someone who needs lessons. I will have to keep my ears open.

Good luck dear. I am completely with you on wondering why people would actually want to shop at 2:00 in the morning.

You can do it!
