I'm kidding. I kid. Sorta.
I swear, he goes back down for a nap by 8:30 (or 2 hours after he gets up) and sleeps for 2 hours, gets up for 2 more hours, and sleeps 2 hours, gets up...you get the picture. I just thank God that he doesn't do that all through the night. He will wake up somewhere around midnight and I'll change him and he'll take a little formula, but I never get him out of his crib (if I did that, it would be all over but the shoutin', my friends) and he goes right back to sleep. This all happens in about 5 minutes flat. Then he'll do the same thing anywhere between 3 and 4:30AM (usually around 3, but today it was 4:30...maybe a good sign?).
It does not matter what time I go to bed, so don't bother. I could go to bed at 9 and my body still wants to sleep until 10AM. It's just the way I'm wired. Naps usually make me feel groggy and just plain worse than if I didn't nap at all. Nothing I can do about it. It really sucks, though. I worked for several years at the 7AM 'til 3:30PM shift and my body never freakin' adjusted. I was constantly tired because of it. Working the weekend program for the past several years has been great. Just the two 16 hour days and I'm done. The rest of the week has been pure bliss for my biorhythm. OK, well, not so much on Mondays, but what do you expect? Still. It's been my best option. Well, the lottery would be my best option, but I'm a realist. And, why yes, I would quit my job if I won a ton of money. In a bleedin' heartbeat. I am not one that would be "bored", or whatever, if I didn't work. No offense to those who would actually want to keep working. I know a lot of people that feel that way. I don't get it, but I respect it. Not me. Fuck no. The thing is, I like my job. I like helping people. I love
Well, ah-hem, didn't I ramble off topic just a bit?!
