A lot of people think that working the graveyard shift ruins your life.
I worked it for five years, Sam works it now, and let me tell you - it has it's benefits.
I loved working it during the summer when I got to sleep by the side of the pool and wake up with a great tan every day (or sometimes a slight burn depending on how hard I slept. haha)
I love the fact that yesterday I left to run errands, Sam got up and ran a few while I was still out, we met for lunch, ran a few more together, took the dogs out for a walk, got in the hottub, and still had about another hour together before he left for work. That kind of stuff just dosen't happen when you work the day shift.
I will admit, I miss sleeping next to him; weekends alone isn't enough. I do get a bit scared sometimes when Sam instinctually says, "Don't forget to lock the door" when he leaves and then Max keeps barking ALL night long. It is a bummer when every other Sunday night Sam takes the girls to their mom's and he goes to work... and I go from an incredibly full house to an empty and quiet one in a matter of minutes.
Yet, overall, graveyards seem to work for us.
After days like yesterday they don't seem so bad.... in fact, they kind of seem like a blessing. There are few things that I enjoy more than galavanting around town on a sunny afternoon, feeling cute and being with my Babe.
