  • I hear you. I work from 9am to 8pm 4 days a week. It's nice to have 3 day weekends, but the 4 work days can be long. I used to get up at 6:30 so that I could shower before I woke my son up at 7:00 to take him to pre-school at 8:00am. Then it's work until 8:00pm and a bus ride home. I spend a few minutes with the family, eat dinner, do a household chore or two and then try to wind down a bit. I've felt so time constrained that I used to stay up and just do something mindless like a game, but that cuts into sleep, which catches up to you very quickly. My solution was to force myself to go to sleep as soon as possible after I get home from work and get up a little bit earlier. It works pretty well, because the family is still asleep when I wake up and I feel like I'm getting a some private time, which is very important to me. I feel a ton better now. The extra sleep and quiet time made a big difference. Obviously, monkey wrenches get thrown into things at times, but it mostly works.
    • I would love to do that, but for two very annoying problems: I turn to dust if I get up before 6:00 am, and I snore like a banshee, so I try to let my wife get to sleep first.

      I think it would work better for me to get up later and stay up later... that way, my wife would be off to work with the kids in tow, and I could lounge around the house. Letting my wife get the kids ready on her own would not promote domestic tranquility, however.

      Maybe I should plan on sleeping in a different room once or twice
