Why me?!?!?

Punchy and tired

Nearing the end of my second week of work. My body is okay with the getting up at 5 a.m. part. I even get out the door by 5:30. If I'm at work by 6 that means I can leave by 3 with an hour lunch. Earlier with less of a lunch.

The down side is that my body hasn't acclimated to what it needs to do to prepare for getting up at 5 a.m. I can't reall get to sleep until around midnight. Ooh! 5 hours of sleep. (Because I go right to sleep when my head hits the pillow. Oh yeah, Yup, yesseree bob (sigh))

I hate going to bed before 11. However, with the 5am rise... I may have to push back...

Yigh... Sleep again soon. ;)

Arrrgh. I did that for a while - had a job that was out in the 'burbs and if I'd tried to go during the rush hour(s), I'd have sat in traffic for even longer than I did. And I'd get up at 5am and try to go to bed at 9pm and eventually, I decided the job was not worth it.
(It was the sleep-deprivation induced fibromyalgia flare that did it.)

See, I go exactly the oposite way with it... I get up at 7:30 to be into the office by 9:30 (unless I am late, which has been happening a lot lately). I then work until 6... I miss the traffic, and ge6t to sleep in... If I cut my hair, I could get up even later.

You really ought to take better care of yourself, my dear. In the sleep realm, I'm not the best example, I know. But you have two options. One, go to work (and thus leave work) later. Two, go to bed earlier. It takes a minimum of 21 days for most people's bodies to adjust to a new sleep schedule, and it has to be pretty consistent--which means you can't stay up until 2 a.m. every weekend night and then expect your body to recover.

You could also move to a place closer to work to shorten the commute, but then that brings in a whole new set of costs and benefits to analyze.

BTW, you and Heather crashing with me this weekend? Yes?

That is indeeed the plan. All still good? We're planning on getting in Friday afterning. (Late afternoon, early evening)

Catch me on email for specifics.

if you are punchy and tired when i see you i am going to kick your ass. i deserve better! so take care of yourself or you're going to get sick again.
