I went to bed Tuesday morning around 8 am.....some of us have to take showers, because some of us actually worked up a sweat working Monday evening/Tuesday morning, while some of us mostly sat in heated offices reading books, drinking hot chocolate mixed in with some napping.
By the way since I go to work on one day of the week, and get home on another day of the week my blog entries may tend to blend into one another. Just like at Amazon.com last Fall in Campbellsville, KY, I get a little mixed up on what day of the week it is.....even with my Day Clock hanging there on the wall less than 10 feet away. This morning when we got home from work, Wednesday, I kept thinking it was Tuesday still. I say good morning to people when it is clearly afternoon, because I just got up. One thing I have learned is that a lack of sleep, and working the night shift tend to heighten my sense of humor, and my sense of the absurd.
After I put up a picture of the dawn breaking over Sidney Sugars factory location signifying the end of my work day a friend posted this on Facebook......"Say what you want....working nights SUCKS!!" I would have to concur with this one caveat........it's not a career, it's just a temporary job. After last year at Amazon, and my first two days here at the Sugar Beet Harvest, to be referred to in the future as SBH, I can only say this with all sincerity.....I have the utmost respect for people who do this kind of work day in, and day out for 12 months out of the year....not just for a few weeks. I could never see myself doing the night shift for years on end.
TLE continues to put up pictures of her work environment seemingly to taunt me....here area few from last night....
We arrived "home" around 7:30 as TLE needed to stop off at the local IGA to buy some eggs, etc......I sat in the car while she ran in wondering how I'm going to do this for 19 more days.....but it is only 19 more days.
