another late night blog...

It's 2am - seems like that's when I've done most of my blogging lately.

Over the last week, I haven't been sleeping well. Most of you know, I work night shift, 7p-7a (3 12 hour shifts, which end up being usually 16 hours by the time I get up - work - home). However when I'm not working, I always flip back to a day shift schedule. It's almost been a week - and I haven't quite adjusted for some reason. I know the end of last week was due to the flu. Now, I'm feeling better, and I'm sitting here at the computer yawning, but once I lay down - I seem to be wide awake. And when I do fall asleep, I wake up every hour or so.

  • Is it because I work night shift? Maybe.
  • Is it just one of those periods where I can't sleep well? Probably.
  • Is it stress related? I don't think so - because I think everything is coming together quite well.
  • Am I ready to be at the point in my life where I can sleep throughout the night? Absolutely. That doesn't look like it's going to happen till after June 3rd(which is my tentative last day/night at Vandy before the wedding)!

I'm going back to bed...hoping to fall asleep soon.

thoughts at 3am...

  • it's 3am, and i'm awake. i only went to sleep at 12:15am. stupid night shift has my sleep schedule out of sync.
  • there's nothing on TV at 3am. not even on PPV - at least worth paying for.
  • commercials are horrible at 3am.
  • i did catch the last few minutes of bridezilla. i have to admit i laughed, but i think i have most of it planned in advance, that hopefully i won't be too crazy toward the end. :)
  • i've looked through my blog - and i stated that if i worked 4 nights in a row - someone stop me. well, i've lost count on how many 4 in a rows i've done. however, i think this last one will be my last - i'm exhausted; i can't sleep; i don't feel good. and i've been told that i can't do more than 3 in a row anymore! :)
  • i want a sense of normalcy - especially my sleep schedule, but that doesn't look like it's going to happen til at least June 3rd(tentative last day at VCH).
  • the watusi are back - meaning they're across street from my parents. i'll have to take some new pictures.
  • i'm so excited to be seeing my favorite doctor tomorrow evening.
  • 93 days til i marry the man of my dreams.

100 days

I can't believe that March is here. Three and a half more months...100 more days! I'm so excited and yet nervous at the same time. So many changes, so many transitions, but absolutely worth it!

Psalm 100
Be Thankful

1 Show triumphantly to the Lord, all the earth.

2 Serve the Lord with gladness;

come before Him with joyful songs.

3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God.

He made us, and we are His --

His people, the sheep of His pasture.

4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise.

Give thanks to Him and praise His name.

5 For the Lord is good, and His love is eternal;

His faithfulness endures through all generations.

I'm extremely thankful for all of the blessings He has provided. Thank you all for your continuing love and support!
