Third Shift

Had to post another photo of the carousel.

I have started kicking around the idea of going to third shift. J has expressed the fact that he would like to work first shift instead of his fluctuating hours on 2nd. This would be all fine if we didn't have to work weekends. Right now J does not work weekends which is nice because finding child care on the weekends is possibly pure hell, especially when one has to be at work at 5:45 am. We have started to discuss what is going to work the best. A job on third shift just opened up that is pure cake, just about as easy as one can get. This is what made me think maybe if I went to 3rd, J could go to 1st and I'd adjust sleep on the weekends. The only thing that makes me leery is having time together. But essentially we would have the same amount of time except for the sleeping part. I am also at the point on first shift where I rarely ever get forced to work a double shift, whereas on 3rd it could be a possibility on some days. It is something we'll have to discuss more, but it is tempting me right now.

That is tough-- it's terrible trying to make ends meet but still get time together. I hope the third shift idea works out for you.

Tough call! Good luck on deciding.
