A Day in the Life of OM

Many people have asked when I sleep… or if I even sleep. I thought I would give you a glimpse of a normal day for me.

01:30 – I get off work and try to quietly sneak into the house without waking my daughters. I normally answer some comments, maybe post a personal poem, and I normally take a bath every night. It keeps me young.

02:30 – 03:00 – I go to bed and dream of winning the lottery.

06:30 – 07:00 – Wake up and get the girls ready for school.

07:30 – Make breakfast for the girls and check personal and OM email.

07:55 – Take the girls to school and beat the train that normally cuts off my route at around 08:05.

08:25 – 10:30 – Depending on how tired I am I normally either nap, post a ton, or just respond to comments. I generally have around 200 or so comments waiting on my combined blogs so that takes a lot of my morning. Catching up is part of the game.

10:30 – Go and pick up my daughters and bring them back home for lunch.

10:45 – 11:30 – Eat lunch and hang out with the girls.

12:00 – 14:00 – This is really where I get my second half of sleep.

14:45 – 01:30 – Work, being tired, posting, commenting, and then I do it all again.

This is pretty much my schedule recently. Last year I got even less sleep due to working till 05:30 in the morning. I hope I never have to do that again. So as you can see I sleep… some.

    If I don’t get at least 7.5 hours sleep, preferably in one go, I am CRANKY! Good for you. I’m in awe! I guess it’s a case of getting your body clock used to a new rhythm.

    See that 8.25 – 10.30 slot?
    We don’t wanna see you here at that time 😉

    Yeah – I know some mornings I think I will nap when I get back from taking the kids in – and I get back and I am WIDE awake…limp – and unenergetic – but AWAKE.

    They say this is the time of our lives when we get the least sleep hey.
    – not so sure about that one! Maybe it is more like we don’t get time to flippin sleep 😉

    Your doing great J

    Do you get to reply to comments, post stuff, and also sleep at your workplace?

    Please correct me if I misconstrued this section of your post. But if I didn’t, then I really envy you. Wish I could do such things at work.

    I used to burn the candle at both ends. Then age humbled me. Now I’m selfish about my sleep. Try it if you can.

  7. MTJames says:

    I used to be a double-ended candle (emphasis on “used to be”). Funny thing about that kind of candle, they don’t sit upright very well.

    NEvermind…gawd…something was weird on my browser. I see it. sorry!

  9. mewhoami says:

    Wouldn’t it be nice if someone else could do the sleeping for you? Then you’d have a full 24 hours to do whatever you want…or reply to comments.

    And a good blog is harder to write as I am discovering
