4:30 in the morning. i'm at work. the rest of the world, or most of it, is sleeping... or so it feels to me. and here i am... working. i don't think shift workers get enough recognition. on fridays, everyone is so happy it's friday... they tell you "have a good weekend"... i hate hearing that when i have to WORK all weekend.
and noise by-laws only reflect the mon-fri people... i agree we need noise by-laws at night... especially when children have to sleep in order to get up for school and be well rested... but then during the day, who is protecting the people who are trying to sleep because they work nights? i'll tell you.... nobody! once i was trying to sleep for a night shift and the apt above me was sanding their floors... shook my whole apartment... it was horrible.
i try not to eat on night shifts, but i caved tonight. i ate a piece of cheese... okay, 2 pieces of cheese... and a minigo yogurt. i'm not even sure how many points minigos are.
after tonight's shift i'm off for 6 days. my plan of attack is to hit the treadmill tomorrow evening.... and then hardcore, TWICE on wednesday... and then again thursday morning... then have weigh-in on thursday.
maybe i should do a plan of a menu for tomorrow: (tuesday's menu)
*cream of wheat (2)
* jam (0)
*1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese (2)
*grape tomatoes (0)
*black pepper (0)
*sushi, 14 pieces (7)
**** plus food from tonight's shift... 2 pieces cheese (6), minigo (2) . plus 1.5 litres of water!!!!
