I Surrender

Do you ever get too tired to think? After a couple of busy weeks, when writing this blog was shoehorned into my schedule like an afterthought, I finally had an evening to sit down and really think about what I’d like to say and how I’d like to say it. Something interesting. Something important. Deep and thoughtful.

 But after a dozen good first paragraphs that fizzled before going anywhere, I am defeated. My brain is full of random thoughts that refuse to be organized into a reasonably interesting order. There are plenty of good ideas floating around. I just can’t get them out of my head and onto my screen.

 I am naturally a night person, but by necessity work a job that makes me get up early in the morning. I need seven hours of sleep to function and nine to feel good about getting up before noon. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve averaged five. My body started protesting a couple of days ago. Now my brain has joined the rebellion.

 I surrender. I’m going to bed.

    I thought getting up for morning shifts was rough – til I started working 3rd shift. OK, morning shifts ARE rough. All-nighters are not exactly a piece of cake either.

    I LOVE third shift. Then instead of getting up early, I get to actually sleep in the morning!
