Yeah, OK, I Skipped a Couple of Months There...

So much for having more time to blog. :-)

Just in case anyone is curious, I'm working (the wife says "yay!"), but the downside is it's all at night. Why is this a downside, you ask? Well, if you've never worked exclusively nights, I'll explain.

1. When you get home in the mornings, it's time for everyone else to get up.
2. If you want to sleep, you've got to use black-out shades and earplugs. Non-negotiable.
3. When you do get up, you feel like you haven't slept and at least half the day is gone.
4. By the time you finally wake up, it's time to pick up the kids, do the good Daddy bit and take them to gymnastics, karate, etc., and then go home and cook supper.
5. Once all of the above is complete, it's time to go to work.
6. It's completely impossible to find some alone time with the wife. The only time we're both awake (and at home) is when the kids are.

Man, I've got to find a day job, just for #6 if nothing else.
