It's official

Some of you have voted on what shift you would choose, and of course 10-hour weekday shifts won out over 12-hour weekend shifts. Days/Graves/Swings was not such a landslide, but I am happy to report that my husband's turn to sign up has come and gone. The decision making was much, much more difficult than times past because they have totally changed the shift days and times, and it was pretty complicated because the team members and supervisors can have a huge impact on how well or terrible a day at work goes. So we'll be in for at least 6 more months of swing shift. I'm getting used to it, so it should be OK. I hope.

On a side note, the young person I mentioned is my previous post is still alive! I'm glad that the mom was able to come and be here. The human body is pretty amazing.

As long as he comes home to you every day unharmed and you get to love and hug on him... You can handle it! I know you can! Hang in there Honey! You are married to a hero and he doesn't even know he is one!

Ladybird ~ Did I ever say Hi and thanks for commenting? I thought I did but I don't know where (if I actually did!).

Cop Mama ~ Yeah, swing shift is fun for DH but not so much for me. I realized that it had been three days since the kids had seen their dad because of the schedule!!

Dispatcher ~ That is such a great way to think about it. Definitely thinking that about 80% of life is attitude!! Thanks for the encouragement.
