I am trying to change our schedule, mostly on my end. But it leaves me exhausted at dinner time. Those senior citizen early bird specials are starting to look appealing.
By nature I'm a total night owl. I function the best mentally between the hours of 7pm - midnight (or later). But this leaves me waking up somewhere near 7:30-8am. It just doesn't work well with trying to run the house.
So I moved my wake up time to 5:30am-6am and its killing me. I love how much I am accomplishing each day, but I am pretty muddle headed all day and I hit a wall of fatigue at about dinner time. I made it stick for about two weeks, and now I can feel myself slowly slipping back into the later bedtime/wake up. Hopefully this isn't genetically hardwired, and it will just require some patience while I shift over. AND my son won't wind up clad in twirly skirts, cause this bleary eyed momma might not notice.
