I HATE THIS CYCLE!

We’re back and it’s Mon. Wed. Friday week…ugggggg! I HATE it! It seems as if you can never get anything done when working this cycle..at home that is.

Oh the horror! The emotional trauma! We feel VIOLATED! I have a morning routine. I usually arrive to work around 06:30 (the “wake up” bell hits at 07:00, shift break is at 07:50 but Officers generally change a little earlier).
