What's Worse than Working at Nights?

I'll tell ya what, it's that whole "Can't get to sleep on your night off" feeling you get on your nights off. I can't get to sleep now before midnight. Sometimes, just lying in bed stinks because I'll lie there, and have to constantly keep my thoughts focused on Christ. Focusing on Jesus gets harder as one becomes a parent I think. Lots of times I'm thinking "Must keep Katie Rosie safe" instead of thinking "Hey, this is God's problem, all I got to do is say Yes!" It's strange. Working nites also makes it harder to communicate with my wife. She's out, and she should be, she works hard, but now I can't talk to her. That's stressful when you've got issues you need to get off your chest. I mean don't get me wrong, blogging is great, but nobody who reads this can respond the same way my Kelly Shawn does.
We laugh because she created a blog account just to keep up with me...
I'll talk to her anyway I can.
Until then, I'll have to survive, talk with the people who hold me accountable. Of course, they'll have to be awake :(
What's your struggle with today?
I've been having control issues.......

I remember when you used to think that sleep was overrated...maybe God has you awake so you can write haikus

Talk about deja vu. Dude, I'm still working nights and I've retired once already. Time is time and no two people are truely on the same clock. And at the moment no two clocks in this house agree. Sleep when you can. I'm not sure about haikus though......

Sleep is to me now
what God is to atheists
It does not exist

I like the idea about haikus, I think I need to work nights since I can only sleep during the day.
