Changing Hats.

Its 4pm on a Tuesday I think. After working 2 and 1/2 of the last 3 nights I slept till 1:30 and have now been sitting in a chair since. It is so hard change hats from night shift nurse to Mom, wife, cook, taxi driver, housekeeper etc. You have the idea. I am off for several days now and hope I can quickly adjust to my other roles. My family is wondering what level of no food will finally inspire me to go to the store. No not yet. I will only go to get something to fix for dinner tonight. I am so tired and feel like I have major jet lag. Only I have not been on a trip. I have only ventured into the land of the people who do not sleep at night, because babies dont know night from day and the stork works 24/7. I love all the hats I wear and hope I feel ready to face them all tomorrow


  1. Rebekah,

    You are amazing.. What can I say.. You inspire me to wear the nursing hat. i can't wait until they day I will be a nurse. Oh wait an awesome day it'll be. Being a mom, wife, cook, dishwasher, taxi service and everything in between .. it can be hard at times to allign everything accordingly (boy can I relate) but I think you do an awesome job.

    Have a great wednesday!


  2. Oh how well I remember that feeling! I worked nights for a total of 7 years. The first 6 years it was just my husband and I and I didn't mind nights back then. The 7th year I worked night was when my daughter was two and I was pregnant with my son. The level of exhaustion was amazing~never felt like I had enough energy! It was a whole different ballgame working night and having children:) Hope your change of hats comes about smoothly today!

  3. Changing hat vs changing roles.. good one!.. but there is one hat you wear it forever - the crown from God as his precious princess!
