At this time, my typical work schedule is the overnight shift every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 8pm to 8am and alternating Wednesdays. In Eastern Time Zone, it looks like this:
This makes weekend activities are difficult (at best) for me. If I want to travel, I'll need to bring my laptop and plug it into the A/C and broadband internet so I can do my job.
I'm taking time off (without pay) to go to the Rochester Rams' Run and the Spearhead Run in August. When I go to England, I'll actually be working from 1am-1pm over the weekend. *sigh*
My plans to attend two weddings have been cancelled, not due to work, but due to lack of communication from all parties involved. These are the Scott Perritt-Hayes & Thomas Simmons wedding 31st July in New Hampshire and the Bruce MacWhorter & Bob Iddings in Rochester on 11 September weddings. My high school's 25th Reunion is on 31 July, and I'm unable attend that as well... *double sigh*
My birthday weekend is coming up -- and again, I have no plans, as I am working. K.K. will be taking me out to dinner on Sunday to celebrate.
The first weekend fun I can look forward to is London in August, and I'll be working whilst in London!! That should be a fun trip! Daniel and Orlando are having a joint birthday party and my MBM group is having a meet-up at the Hoist on Sunday evening.
I return from England the night before K.K.'s (physical) birthday (his actual party will be merged with our mutual friend's Tabi on the evening of 15 August.) I work a DAY SHIFT on K.K.'s birthday, then I'm off until 8th September as I travel to the Rams' Run and the Spearhead Run!
I've revamped the "Where's Chaz" at-a-glance to show all days, not just weekend days, as I now have weekdays as time off. It's new and colourful -- check it out, if you like. Until then, I'll have to learn to enjoy Monday & Tuesday (and every other Wednesday) as my days off. I've told some mates that I'm free on these days to go motorcycle riding, but haven't heard from them -- which is sad, but understandable when they have a normal work-week.
Let's watch the Chihuahua wearing the taco again, shall we?
