I’m convinced I’m never going to get this whole night shift thing down.

As I’m writing this, it’s Thursday (day) and while I should be sleeping because tonight kicks off another stretch of nights for me,

I. JUST. CAN’T.

I swear the pressure of feeling like I have to sleep is preventing me from doing exactly that. Yesterday was my day off and I was somehow totally capable of taking a two hour nap (with Remy snuggled up to me) at 4PM. But today – NADA.

Also totally intended to take a Benadryl (or two) at like noon to force myself to sleep but I forgot until 3pm when I went to lie down and at that point it was just too late. So now I’ve been laying in bed since 3 trying to force myself to sleep for the past two hours. As you can see, I’ve given up.

Guess I’m going to be up for 24 hours straight today. HALP.

I’ll be on nights this whole weekend so I doubt I’ll be up to cooking or doing anything too exciting, so please please do some extra fun eating for me!! Maybe I can convince the.boy to go to Dough doughnuts and bring me back something extra-caloric and yummy. Here’s to hoping.

Happy eating!

I’m so confused.

Is it the weekend?

Is it a weekday?

But, more importantly, WHY AM I AT THE HOSPITAL WORKING INSTEAD OF AT HOME EATING PANCAKES WITH MY BABY?!?!?

This life, you guys. It’s a strange one.

Actually the weirdest part is that while I’m at work, I actually do not think about anything but work. I don’t look at facebook or spy on our nanny…it’s just all work all the time. And then I go home and crash. Not surprising after having to spend a full 12 hours thinking about how to not kill (and maybe even make better) an entire ICU of very sick people. No pressure.

I’ll be working both days this weekend, so please please have some summer fun for me!!!

Happy eating!
