After Midnight

This piggyback's off of my last post.

Thanks for the comments from my fellow night owl cyber friend's :)

It is the dawn of a new day, this is my new day, I am awake, I feel good after midnight.

Of course the hot bath helps a ton I have been going all day, work, work, work...

I used to believe that the time of day we were born coinincides with our sleep/awake patterns.

I have met many people over the years that do make that ring true, but some who didn't.

I guess that is true with anything, we can find enough evidence to make or break anything.

Nothing is absolute because people are people, we are unique even when we have many similarities.

I love being up at night, I shop at night, I clean at night, I ummm do things at night.

I am in such a fog most of the day, so I was born at 11:48 pm and I have always been a night person.

It is hard for me to fall asleep, it's been that way since day 1.

My husband has the ability to go to bed late and get up early for work, he also can take 20 minute naps and be refreshed.

If I try to take a nap it takes me a looooong time to get comfortable, I have to be in my bed for starters.

He naps on his lunch break if he is tired, I have read that people who power nap are able to recharge and be alert.

Well I can't do that, but I am alert now :)

Hey it's almost time for House of Payne...

The kids have summoned me :)

I used to always be a night owl - but I like mornings too. Now that I'm not 20-something, I need more sleep - and usually I end up slamming into bed at night exhausted around 11-12ish after work.
I used to have my best writing and creative time -and now when I get home that late - the house is high energy and everyone is ON - it just wipes me out.

My sleep habits have changed throughout the years according to my needs and the kids activities. We used to be in bed early 10pm or so. Now its whatever time you crash.

I worked nights for 2 years, 8pm-8am. In my youth I rarely slept. Out late and up early. I am paying the price now. It's like my body wants to try to catch up on all the sleep I missed. Maybe I'll blog about my sleeping habits, with a link back to yours : )
