Down Time

I've worked eight out of the last nine overnight shifts, and now, I get to enjoy a little time off.

Let's put things in perspective.  I'm not outside, digging a ditch in 100 degree heat.  I'm not fighting a fire in 1000 degree heat.

I'm in a comfortable, air conditioned building, sitting in a nice, padded chair-- with snacks, drinks and a clean bathroom close by.  I have a good job.

Still, I'm a little tired.

So, what will I be doing with my down time?  Nothing.  Well, I shouldn't say "nothing."  I'll be walking the dog, getting a hair cut, out playing with my camera, reading, visiting the dollar store, and sleeping.  Plenty of sleep.  I can't stress that enough.

I'll be thoroughly enjoying my week.  I hope yours is a good one.
