Sleep Deprived?


I am pretty much dead on my feet right now.  I have been working third shift three days a week the past two weeks.  Last week it wasn’t so bad, because I worked 10pm to 3am.  This week they tacked on 2 hours extra each night, making it 5am before I am headed home.  I actually love the schedule.  I love working when there are no customers to get in the way.

The problem lies in sleep.  I want to sleep all day! Which, when you take into account that I don’t get to sleep until about 7am, sleeping until 3 or 4 in the afternoon is not that bad.  It’s only 8 to 9 hours of sleep.  But for some reason my mom thinks that it’s crazy that I sleep so late in the day.  Just because her and my brother can function comfortably on 4 to 5 hours.  I can’t. I get cranky and tired.

I have been trying to not sleep all day.  I have a puppy to take care of, blogs to write, a story to work on, and Christmas gifts to make.  Sadly, not much has been getting done.  I get up before 3, but I usually find myself still laying in bed with a headache or just too tired to do much of anything.

On a positive note to all of this, my ankle seems to finally be getting better. I am not hobbling as much and it doesn’t hurt as much.  It usually hurts when I lay down to go to sleep, but not enough to keep me awake.  It’s pretty awesome actually.  I’m just hoping that it’s a permanent thing, and not just a fleeting moment of freedom from pain.

I am still writing, and shockingly I am still getting a blog a day done, but it’s all done from my bed.  Maybe I will eventually get used to the hours and can function during the day, or I will be put on a different schedule.  All I know is I have got to stop sleeping so much and I need to get moving again.

Tomorrow I am hoping to get back to the blogs about writing, I just haven’t had the energy to put much thought into my blogs.

NaNoWriMo update: 27,884 over half way there and ahead of schedule.  I just hope that my muse keeps working with me.
