Schedule Changes and Writing

Monday evening, my son started tae-kwon-do lessons. Last night, there was a special "meet the teachers" night at school. Since I have flextime at work, I got up an hour early so I could shift my schedule and leave early. I had to make sure there was enough time to get homework done and eat dinner before we had to go. Since I don't get much sleep as it is, I've definitely been paying for that. My other normal evening chores kept me occupied until 10:45 last night, and I was too tired to think of anything to blog about, let alone write. I hope that once the martial arts class is underway, I'll be able to get more work done while Alex is in class. If I continue to get up early on Mondays, though, I may not be too functional.

Do you have a routine schedule, or does it vary a lot? How does that affect your ability to write or do other things you enjoy?

I don't mind getting up early, but I don't like my start times fluctuating from day to day.

For years, hubby worked shift. One week it would be 4am, the next week it would be 4pm. He was always tired. I greatly disapprove of shift work for people who perform critical and life threatening work. One wrong move caused by too little sleep could kill someone.

I'm a creature of habit. I already have to get up really early for work, so staying up past ten at night exhausts me.

We've started taking our teenager to an early morning class 1/2 hour away (5:30 AM), and between that and the baby, we've just decided this is a season of no sleep. It's only one school year though, so we'll survive. I hope.

I just woke up. Haha

Maria, shifting schedules are tough.

Alex, it sure seems like you're an early bird!

Crystal, that sounds worse than my schedule! Good luck to you this year.

Pat, I wish I could still sleep in. Seven is my sleeping in these days.
