Tuckered out

You have all heard the phrase "tuckered out". Well, this is what it looks like. My daughter took this picture tonight, of the pup we have, who just happens to be named Tucker.

3 o'clock in the morning

It's 3 a.m and here I sit writing a blog post. I wish I could sleep normal hours on my day off, but that would really screw me up.
The following is what I worked last week.
Monday 5a.m. - 5p.m.
Tuesday 5a.m. - 5p.m.
Wednesday 5p.m. - 5a.m.
Thursday 5p.m. - 5a.m.
Friday 5p.m. - 5a.m.
Saturday 5p.m. - 5a.m.
Sunday OFF
If you add those wonderful shifts up, I worked 72 hours last week. And this week isn't looking any better. Although, I know I will have Friday off, because the kids and I are going to the Chris Daughtry concert in Green Bay.
They figure we will be super busy like this for at least 3-4 weeks. Until the Gulf Coast spill is under control and cleaned up.

See ya on the other side....

Night Shift

Night shift, here I come. Today the supervisor pulled 3 of us aside, to tell us we would officially start running the boom line 24/7. Starting TOMORROW. And because of my ability to get things done in a timely manner (yick, knew that would come back and bite me on the a$$), I got picked to lead the night shift crew. I worked 5a.m.-5p.m. today, and tomorrow I will be flip flopping that to 5p.m.-5a.m. No chance of an adjustment period, just WHAM night shift. No extra pay, but the chance to pick up overtime. (don't I already pick up enough????) So I am valiantly trying to stay awake as late as possible tonight, to unsure I can sleep later tomorrow. Which is dayem hard, seeing as how I have been up since 3:30 this morning. Just the thought of driving TO work in rush hour traffic while 1/2 asleep is daunting. Hope all the good Coppers out there look the other way :P
Anyhow, thought I would give y'all a quick update.
See ya on the other side....

shoot me, do it NOW

I can't take anymore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From Meteorologist Tom Mahoney:

It is unusual but not out of the question. Snow in Wisconsin in May.

A Winter Weather Advisory will go into effect tonight in Northern Wisconsin from Oconto County northward. It will last until 7am tomorrow. While there may be 2"-4" of snow in the advisory area, there could also be up to 2" possible in Green Bay and the Fox Cities. The storm will exit tomorrow morning and will be followed by a sunny Mother's Day.

Enough already!!

After posting that second captcha, I went blog hopping, to catch up on all the blogs I read. When I got to JD's, I read the couple of posts I had missed there. Imagine my complete and utter shock, when I found this video, at the bottom of one of them!!

I am NOT finding this funny!
