Night Shift Blues



I started working the night shift around New Years. I actually like it because it fits my work-out schedules more and I feel I have more time with the kids. When I make it, of course...However, I fall asleep doing nothing, sitting in my beloved bubble baths, and watching 24 which my wife tapes for me.

This is a picture of me in my garments on the couch crashed out. My wife took it without me knowing.

Okay, this is the third time I've tried to respond, and if this doesn't work I'm going to bed.
I'm totally freaked by your outfit!! Is that even legal?!!
Sorry you're so pooped. Tons of research out there on how night shift is really a beast.

We have an expression in our house W.W.S.R.D? We use that in place of W.W. J.D.?, and it stands for What Would Sister Ross Do? She's the R.S. President who took me to task for showing an inch of garment beneath my shorts hem at the grocery store. How did she know? Because a fellow sister called her up and ratted on me, that's how. Whenever I show any garment, my kids pipe up, "MOM, W.W.S.R.D?"

I work during the night. I feel unconscious during the day and I float through as if in a fog most of the time.

I guess you being in your garments is a big deal or something. I've heard of them, but being a "no-mo" (thanks for the term, elizabeth), I don't get what all the fuss is about, though (sorry). Personally, I think you look comfy and just need a nice blanket.

Night shift's tough after a while, especially w/kids. Been there. Elastic, too. I don't know how you both do it.

Sister Ross is gonna be mad! The Sister Ross of my ward is always getting her quilting yarn all knotted up. She always seems to have an opinion about everything and everyone..which makes me wonder about how many bones shes got hiding in her closet. So many I bet she doesnt have enough yarn to keep 'em all together( which is why shes gonna mess with the few bones you have laying out.)
Why I bet she'll even knit you a nice display throw so that the whole world can view them.

Wendela, I'm so glad someone is putting it to good use besides just me and my sister :)
Patrick, you ok? Struck by lightning yet? If it gets slow at work, drop us a note so I know you're hangin' in there!

Uh, sister ross always wants to mess with my bone, so to speak. But I say, Hey, I only have one bone-collector; she'd be mad...
