Biphasic Sleeping

I'm Back...

I think I'm back at least!! Since Josh started going to school at night on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, it had become impossible to take a nap because he didn't get home until 10:30. It seemed pointless to try to take a nap at 10:30. I was also using this as an excuse because I was feeling...lazy.

Now that I possibly have a new job with excellent hours, I think I am going to try it again. I've had about a month's hiatus (from work and biphasic sleeping), so I am feeling ready to give it another go! Here is what I think my schedule will be:

  • wake up 4:00am. I am choosing 4:00 because it seems that if Keira is going to wake up in the middle of the night, it is usually right around 4:00. I guess that is HER sleep cycle. I want to set my wake up time around then so that my sleep cycle isn't messed up if she does get up in the middle of the night. Josh is usually up until around 3:00 anyway, so there is little time for her to mess it up!
  • nap for 1 1/2 hours around 3:30pm. If I get the job, this should be around the time I get home everyday. Since it is waitressing, sometimes sidework takes a little longer, so I over estimated a bit. Josh leaves for school at 5:15, so I should be up (and maybe a little groggy) when he is ready to go.
  • Sleep at 1:00am. This gives me 3 hours of sleep. If I am feeling extra tired, I will be able to go to bed around 12:30am without any hassle.
I'm 2 1/2 hours into my first morning. I haven't had too much difficulty yet. It was Night that woke up this morning, but not until 5:45. He had a nightmare about an elevator or something, so right now we are watching THE WILD THORNBERRIES. Don't be jealous.

What have I done so far this morning? Laundry (folded, moved clothes to the dryer, and started the washing machine), drank 2 glasses of water (I'm a good girl) and one big mug of coffee, did pilates, and watched 1 episode of LOST. I'm hoping Night will fall asleep on the couch so I can continue LOST.

So far so good. I'll keep you updated!!
