My update

Wow- not sure how it happened, but it's been almost a month since I last posted. Time has gotten away from me lately. I'm working night shift again and I've come to the conclusion that I am just too old for this stuff!  One 12 hour shift (which is really closer to 16 by the time I add in the commute) requires 2 days of recovery.

I do have several Fall projects planned that I hope to get to this week.  I want to decorate my porch and get it ready for Halloween.  I have a fun wreath planned to greet the trick or treaters.  Once things settle down, I hope to get some homemade Christmas gifts under way, too.

Really like you're new lay out.

Since you speak of 12 hours shifts, I'm assuming you are a nurse? A good friend of mine is a nurse, also. She works 4 12 hr. shifts a week. She said as you do, there is no time but to get ready for work, get to work, get back home (her commute is about 25 min.) and repeat. Then 2 days to recover. That the concept of this schedule sounds great but in reality of it is brutal. She'd like to go back to 8 hr. shifts 5 days a wk. but she gets a bonus for doing the 12 hr. shifts and she can't afford to give that bonus up.

Regardless of what work you do, hats off to you for living this shift.
