I’ve been a night shift employee for 11 years. I’ve always worked the odd shifts no one wants. Nights, weekends, holidays. Yuck. Now that I’m a wife, mother, and triathlete, it was time to make a change. I found a position that was PERFECT. It’s day shift with no nights, weekends or holidays. And, it conveniently is located right next door to the Natatorium so I can get some long swims in before work! I’m so excited. It was bittersweet leaving my home in the busy downtown ER, but it was long overdue to turn in my “zombie card” and join the living on a “normal” schedule. I can’t wait.
