the good fit

Finally! Finally, I'm on my regular schedule and it's basically the schedule I'd hoped for. One week I work Monday and Saturday, the next I work Sunday, Tuesday and Friday, all nights of course. It goes back and forth with this schedule, through November and I'm hoping it will stay like this for several months, at least for now. I feel like this will give me the best of both worlds. One world I'm a nurse, working and gaining experience to hopefully move on to a more preferable field of nursing, eventually. The other world I'm getting to be a mom and wife. Even during the days of the nights that I work I am able to do what needs to be done and still get my sleep. I wouldn't necessarily be able to do that on day shift without some finagling, as a friend found out recently. Our kids had half days last week and she was working on one of those days. Well, her kids needed to be at the school for their sports, and they don't drive yet. Fortunately another friend was able to help out. I didn't want to have to deal with these kinds of dileemas, so I chose nights. Part-time nights are working out great for me.
