It's 3:15 a.m. Normally, I'm getting home from work about now. Since starting the night shift in July, I've pretty well trained my body to sleep at the appropriate times in order to accommodate such a schedule. Today, however, I received my promotion to become a supervisor. Yet, before I can start real "supervision" I have three weeks of classroom training to endure. Even worse, they just yanked us out of our usual schedule and we have to sit through the training during the evening (5 hours a night, 5 days a week). So, at the time I got home tonight, I'm usually just getting warmed up loading trucks full of boxes. The result is: I can't sleep because even though this is my usual bedtime, I haven't spent the last 5 hours in intensive physical labor so I'm not that tired.
I'm glad I got a promotion (along with a significant raise). But I hate not being able to sleep.
