A "hobo" clown at heart, down on my luck (previously but not now), but eternally optimistic :o)

As you read this entry, or at least at the time it posted, I am on my first day of our refueling outage at our nuclear power plant. I will be doing 6-12 hour days, plus turnover and 45 minute commute each way.
I find working this shift very tiring. I normally got to bed between 11 and 11:30, but with needing to get up at 3:15 AM, I will need to plan on being in bed no later than 10 PM. I force myself to get daily workouts, it helps relieve stress and offset the goodies that we have during the day to keep ourselves going. That leaves me with 7:15 to 10:15 PM daily to decompress, eat dinner, etc., so that does not leave much time for extras. So besides my pre-staged entries, I will be kind of light for a while.
In addition, I will be lurking, but not commenting nearly as often. See you in mid-April, just in time for the tax man.
