Making the switch
Making the switch to Mid-Shift is pretty much miserable. Aaron was on Day shift the first month and a half we were here. Then when most of his AMU got deployed they moved the guys from the 89th over to the 91st. Once there they switched him to Swing shift where he was going in at 3 in the afternoon and getting off at about midnight. Not my favorite shift, but not awful either. Then only 2 weeks later they told him he was going to Mid-Shift (they told him wednesday) so he worked friday from 11 to 7 and on Sunday he has to go in at midnight, that gives us roughly 40 hours to switch from sleeping from from midnight to 9 to being awake all night and sleeping during the day. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot??? Yes this is what we give up as military families. Normally when you have a shift change IRL they give you a week's notice or more so that you can start making changes...oh no, not the military...lol. Oh well, Aaron is taking a short nap because we woke up at 10 today and it is already 1:30 AM. Ugghh. Shoot me now.
