Today's entry starts with a discussion of my sleep habits, and goes from there. Hope that's not too boring. That's what this whole web log/online journal thing is really about, after all: gratuitous sharing of information.
The general malaise that I've been referencing for the past few weeks--and that I think I'm finally getting over--did a number on my sleep schedule. I think this is in part a sort of normal response sessional light differences, and the fact that I don't have anything to do in the mornings, so I don't absolutely have to get up in the morning. I should, in any case.
The sort of frustrating thing, was that while I had a few days with a semi-irregular sleep pattern, the past four nights have been eerily predictable. (Sleep at 12:30, awake at 9.) I even tried a couple of times to go to bed earlier, and spent an hour or more trying to fall asleep (generally if I don't fall asleep in 20 mins, I get up and knit or read for a while until I'm tired enough to give it another go.)
So given that I had a long weekend. I thought that it might be good to shock my body back into a normal sleep schedule. So, no naps today. I also have a plan for adjusting my sleep schedule so that I can get into a 11-7, or 10:30-6:30 habit, and use the extra morning time to write and read and do things that I should do. I work really well in the morning, and I think I'm better at being tycho when I have that time. Even if I sleep the same amount, being awake at night is never as productive or happy-making for me.
So what did I do last night, while I was trying to trick my body into going into something more reasonable? I knit. A lot. And watched more Enterprise. The turkish tile is now a total of 20 inches long, which means I'm somewhere between 1.5 and 2 inches away from beginning the neck shaping. When the neck shaping start, I'll have 35 rounds and 9 sets of short rows left on the body. The countdown begins.
I also did some drupal tinkering. I got things set up pretty much the way I want them, I think. The goal now is to get the content into the system, and then make sure that it all works out right. Then we go live.
Onward and Upward!
