The title makes the feat sound lofty, but really it’s just selfish. I want to survive on less sleep because I have more I want to do.
I’d like 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. schedule please. Although it’ll probably be more like 6:30 a.m. with much begging and pleading for more sleep. And by begging and pleading, I mean pretending to still be sleeping through MAMA!! DADA!! WAHHHHH!! And my husband stomping around because I stayed up too late and want to sleep-in AGAIN.
I actually posed this question to Twitter months ago. Most people cautioned me not to do it for more than a few days.
I clearly didn’t like that answer because I’m going on three months. (Although I could’ve also been at this pace for five months. I’ve really lost count.)
Sleep is interfering with my ability to WIN! Gold medal for a clean house (okay, the house can stay dirty, I just won’t have people over. maybe we can move), cooked meals (or take-out. but like FRESH take-out made with love.), well-written blogs (ta-da), funny tweets (well, maybe I can just be the @reply HAHA LOL person) , and sex with my husband (not compromising).
Even this modified type of winning-at-life seems to take less sleep. And more caffeine.
So help me to stay up.
PS. It’s after midnight. I’m WINNING! Who wants to get up with my kids tomorrow?
Answer that makes me want to hug people and say YES! And also makes my question completely pointless: Heather (qtberryhead) writes: I’m a night owl. It’s the rest of the world that’s screwed up, not us. I was so happy when the kids hit their teens and wanted to sleep in.
Answer that had a secret answer in it without the answer-er knowing (I also crossed out the rest): The Sweetest writes:
I am no help with this one. I sleep (AKA toss and turn) from about 9:30 to 5:30am every day. If I got less, I’d have to train everybody else, so they could deal with me.
