The fog - 02/18/14
Confession time: I've worked in television news for 16 years. In that time, I have only ever worked the night shift. The 2pm-11pm shift. However, becoming a mom changed things. I have two sweet kids ages 4 and 5. Working nights would mean I'd send them off to school in the morning and really not see them again until the next day.
Our move to Nashville was a choice. A choice to be closer to family and a choice to work a shift where I could spend more time with my children. I love my job and I am beyond thrilled to be in Nashville working with this team on a brand new journey.
Having said that... here I am. I'm trying to adjust to this new morning schedule. Always, in the back of my mind, I remember WHY I'm doing it. It's for my kiddos and my family. I made the right choice. But sometimes, I find myself in this strange fog. Twice in the past week I've fallen asleep waiting in the car at the bus stop. Twice in the past week, I've driven right past my exit on the interstate. Almost daily, I find myself feeling downright goofy after I leave work.
I know there are a lot of you who work odd hours. Heck, when I worked nights those were odd hours, too. If any of you are on this morning shift with me... help a girl out and share your secrets for getting out of that fog! Do you have any tips for eating, napping, or exercising?
Hope you have a fog-free day :)
