|It Never Ends Does It?|
But...in the off time it makes your private life a bit wonky. Can't really do yard work at night. It can be done but I know I'm not going to do it. Plus, with the creatures that roam around in the wee hours it would totally creep me out. I have a small list of "handy man" things that need to be tackled, as I have procrastinated but unless I find a fellow night owl, those tasks have proven to be difficult to complete. Have I mentioned how much I hate to clean floors and bathrooms? Sheesh...again...I wish I could find someone to do that for me. I've gotten that lazy about household duties like that. Keeping fingers crossed that I will be able to afford a maid to come clean the said floors and bathrooms someday. I absolutely hate it.
And there's the "too much alone time" factor. Yes, I could get a roommate but I haven't had one in many, many years. I do much better having friends spend the night or visit for the weekend vs. having someone around full time. If I ever become involved in a relationship, I don't know how I would cope if we moved in together. I don't know if I'd even want that at this point in my life. Maybe if it were the right person. Guess the future holds that answer. I think I've been single way too long.
Some would say get another pet. Yes...I hear that. But I'm just not ready for that world just yet. I miss my old man kitty but it's getting easier and has been easier. I'm just not ready for that kind of emotional involvement. Maybe someday I will be ready for another four pawed companion as I do love having a pet in my home.
I know I'm not the only night shifter who struggles with such issues. I just wish that I could reboot my body clock more quickly so I can be more functional. Or at least feel more functional. I wish that I could go to bed at a decent hour in my off time. But then again, the wee hours are mine. It's peaceful, calm and mine to wonder of all the possibilities. I do see creatures in the night, I see the stars shinning bright in the sky, I see cars come and go and then the nosy neighbor in me goes in defense mode. haha...Gotta make sure my hood stays safe!
Yes, working nights has it's perks. I thought I'd hate it but I've found my niche I believe. And if working nights is the trade off then I guess that's okay. I'm glad I have this blog that's for sure. It gives me comfort regardless of the time of day and that's a good thing. Until next time...elizinashe
