Knowing that I really don't sleep well when he's not in bed with me (and because I still have not learnedto not read scary books before going to sleep), I've just decided to wait for him to get home to go to bed. That way, I get to hang out with him for a bit and then just go to bed with him. I know it's sappy. However, as it turns out, I've been able to utilize that time and can get a lot of shit finished between midnight and 3am!
-I can make a wicked dinner. Turkey meat loaf with rosemary smashed potatoes and herb sour cream sauce.
-Throw a load of laundry in the washer.
-clean the bathroom
-go through the mail from the week.
-cook up some chicken for Mario's lunch.
-pack breakfast and lunch for Mario
- make lemon squares.
-change laundry over. put in new load.
-put laundry away from last weekend. put tonight's laundry away.
-oh, I need to transplant those zucchini plants to the new planters. sure, there's enough light in the backyard for gardening at 2am.
-my hands are already dirty, might as well plant some more stuff.
-wash my hands and decide to wash a few dishes.
- attack Mario when he comes to the door.
-pass out and have the hardest time waking up at any decent hour the next morning.
I have always been a night person. It's just amazing how much you really can get finished when you're in the groove. Seriously, I would never get this much finished before noon. I've always called bullshit when people say they are more creative at certain times, however, I might now be a believer!
The only problem is sleeping in. Sure, as long as I don't have a shoot, it's fine. However, getting up early on the weekend to go to work is a bitch. I'm sure Mario's schedule will even out more (I'm totally lying to myself here) or more likely I will learn to sleep without Mario again...and I'll also learn to not read scary books before bed...hopefully...probably not.
