Your sleep schedule

RainRain Posts: 8,958 ✭✭✭
What is it? I've been pretty erratic for...well...ever. Am making a conscious effort to try and get on a sleep schedule, though. Started with doing the Ken Light MOW FTW challenge and have been at it for a few days, waking up at 4am and going to sleep at 9pm. Wife and I do a TV show from 745pm to 830pm, gives me about half an hour to fall asleep. It's pretty nice getting a smoke in early in the morning, no heat, no sun and no neighbor noise.

    Katie, is up at 2:50am leaves by 3:30am starts at 4:15 a boss at Andes Candies (the green mints) so she is usually down early, I'm up at about 4-5 and start working, maybe a morning Monte Red with coffee then off to where ever I am going, a lot of time I don't get home till 10-11pm makes for hard nights, better when outta town at a B&M.

    Weekdays I'm typically in bed by 1-2am and up by 8-9am (right now work is a bit odd what with finishing grad school and waiting to start at the navy. Weekends I'm up by about 10.

    I've always been a late night guy and even when working the standard 9-5 timing I'll be asleep by 1-2 am, sometimes 3.

    Normal days asleep by 11 PM and awake about 6:30 to 7 AM. On days when I have a gig it's asleep 3-4 AM and awake anywhere from 8 to 9 AM. I can survive on 3 to 4 hours but it's not pretty

    I'm all over the place. I'll spare the details but being military and having a wife who works 12 hours shifts and having a 4 month old... i'm averaging 4.5 hours hours a night on good nights. On a bad rotation i'll get 2.5 hours hours, be up for 5 hours, nap for 2 then go to work for 10 hours... those days blow.

    I finally get to sleep at 1... Get up at 8... Not the best practice but I love the quiet, stillness except for my wife snoring!

    I work on call 24/7 and have 2 hours when called to arrive at work. Average work day is 12 to 16 hours. I often have days where I am up for well over 24 hours without sleep. I went into the military, then to law enforcement, and to this. I haven't had a normal sleep schedule in 22 years.
    Woke up at 8am this morning and heading into work in an hour and a half and probably have to work until 11am so another being up over 24 hours.

    I'm usually in bed by 1030 or 11, read for 30-45 minutes and then up at 7. Alarm goes off at 615, it's a light and radio alarm, gives me the chance to more slowly wake up. Not a morning person.

    Wife and I in bed about 8 to 8:30, fall asleep watching tv, wake up sometime to turn off tv and go to the bathroom. She get's up at 4 to 4:30, I get up and make coffee. Enjoy a cigar and read the newspaper, check out the forum, like now. She owns the bathroom until she leaves at 6:45. Always liked getting up early anyways, my first job was a runner on a milk truck back in 6th grade, had to get up at 3:30. Mornings are nice though, and I find I can get more done sometimes.

    I get up at 6 and walk up the hill to my studio. Then it's back to the house for a bite and a dog walk in the woods. Back up to my studio for work and a cigar, break midday for lunch. Back to studio till around 3. Lucy goes to work at 5 so we eat early. Back to my studio for coffee and a cigar and work on whatever i have going till around 8. Ck the forum and email grab a book and hit the hay at 9. I'm a lucky guy I live and work at home.

    Regardless what time I go to bed, I will always awaken one hour before daylight. So, on average, about eleven pm or midnight to five am. Always used to get along on five hours or less. I find that in my dotage I need six.

    He is a lab mutt from the shelter. We had a Shepherd and they both slept in the basement on a couch. When the shepherd died, the wife thought the lab would be lonely so let him sleep in the bed one night. That was 2 years ago and he has been there every night since. 100 pound lab takes up a lot of room
