Now I'm working the "You have to be kidding me!" early shift; I get up at about the time I used to go to bed, and get home in time to send Mrs. Drang instant messages for an hour or so before she leaves her desk. Technically, we have more time together this way, since she gets home while I am still up, but it's only just, as she's usually home about 6PM and I usually go to bed about 7 or 8 PM.
Another thing I dislike about this shift: It serves as a fresh reminder, if I needed one--and I guess I did--of just how far north Seattle is. These days, it is not dark until 730-8 AM, and is getting dark by 5 PM.
While I can't say that I leave in the dark and come home in the dark, that's an awful short period of daylight.
(Being Seattle, "sunlight" is too much to hope for...)
