Night shift works well for me - great actually - as long as I get at least 6 hours of sleep. If I get 6 hours of sleep, my day is like any other and I don't need caffeine to stay awake at work, and I'm alert on my drive home. However, inevitably, the sleep schedule does get interrupted from time to time.
This whole week has been a sleep schedule cock up. On Monday I stayed up late to deal with day care shit. Tuesday was the same. Wednesday I had to drive the Moosh up to my mom's house so she could watch him. Today I had to do the same, but the noise was unbelievable while I was trying to "sleep" so it was a joke. Tomorrow I have to go to my parents yet again. Urgh. Ugh.
Not that I don't love my family, or that I don't appreciate their help in watching the Moosh, but still. I'm tired. And just think, in 4 weeks, I get to do this for two weeks straight!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
