Night Shift Brain Death

with 4 comments


I’ve finally gotten back in the rhythm of packing my food! And since I’m working night shift right now, I’m packing a little bit more than usual since when I get home in the morning, I don’t eat and go straight to sleep. They are:

1) tortilla soup
2) small tupperware of nachos& shredded cheese for the soup
3) carrots+grapes+cheese
5) strawberries
6) one yogurt
5) a roll and a half of sweet hawaiian bread with hazelnut butter to eat with the strawberries

Soon as I’m done with this post I’m going to quickly make and eat a sandwich and head out to start my ~12.5hr Labor and Delivery night shift. It’s tempting to skip eating all together but I know I’ll regret it later and end up buying something.

Sigh. I’ve had so much I’ve wanted to say these past weeks but I’ve been so busy, and now I’m busy and exhausted and completely disoriented from the sleep schedule change.

    • haha, this is one of the reasons why the idea of a stay at home spouse sounds wonderful to me these days. I would love it if someone packed my lunches and had dinner ready for me when I got home!

      • One of my friends in medicine has a stay-at-home husband, and I’m always jealous of the fact that she has someone to cook her meals/clean her house/raise her two children while she works and studies. If only I could figure out how to get one of those for myself!

        • That sounds perfect! I joke with my boyfriend that I’m grooming him to be my stay at home husband. He’d be more of a “work from home” husband, but if I can get him more comfortable with the kitchen, I can maybe still get dinners out of him. =D
