Since I switched to filling in on the morning and noon news, I am actually getting more continual sleep. But the past two Saturdays I went to bed at 6:30pm and 7:30pm, so that kind of kills time alone with Dave when his wife’s in bed before his 3-year-old. I regularly wake up BEFORE my 3:30am alarm goes off and, sadly for Daddy, Thomas wakes shortly after I leave now. So he’s up at 4 or sleeps in until 4:15am! Just when Daddy gets him back to sleep, around 5, is when Charlotte gets up. And then you can forget about anymore shuteye. If Dave or I get a nap later in the day, we can’t fall asleep at bedtime and end up tossing and turning for long periods. So pretty much either way, no matter my work schedule, I’m screwed when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep. And I know what some of you are thinking. I’m not going to sleep well regardless when Charlotte is in our bed. You’re probably right, but I’m usually too tired to realize it.
Covenant RIPT, Week 2: Last night’s class was tough. I couldn’t even do the bouncing lunges, both because I’m out of shape and I don’t think my knees could take them. The kickboxing and resistance-band work are challenging but the instructor switches it up enough that everyone can get through it.
