SLEEP: Day 10-12 of 30 – Confused Sleeping Partner

Confused Sleeping Partner

30 Day Challenge Accepted Sleep

For the past 9 days I didn’t tell my husband I was doing the 30 Day Sleep Challenge.  Since we’re both night owls, we’re used to each of being busy either separately or together till the wee hours.  When one of us randomly goes to bed before 1am, we know the endless nights of exhaustion has finally caught up.  But since I’ve been lights out around midnight back-to-back days, I finally had to confess to my husband what I’ve been up to.

Day 10
12:30am – 7:45am (7hours 15minutes), Hit Snooze: 2x

Even though I got a solid 7 hours of sleep, I couldn’t seem to wake up. I should be up and at ’em 7:00am in order to get the kids out of the house by 8:30am without acting like a crazy lady. It’s a good thing I had already planned to treat myself to coffee today, because I seemed to need it.

Day 11
12:30am – 7:30am (7hours), Hit Snooze: 1x

I could’ve went to sleep earlier, but with the end of Obama’s tenure and all the talk about Trump, I just had to continue binge watching House of Cards.  Netflix, I love you. But you’re ruining my sleep.

Day 12
11:30am – 7:30am (8hours), Hit Snooze: 2x

I was barely able to keep my eyes open and knocked out surprisingly early; before midnight?! Totally helped that this season of The Affair is a bore.  But, so that my husband wouldn’t worry that something was wrong with me, I finally confessed to him I was doing the sleeping challenge.

It’s not that I was hiding it from my husband, but doing these 30 Day Challenges are a thing I do on my own.  The funny thing is that my husband has either consciously or subconsciously started to go to bed earlier than normal too.  I don’t know if he actually goes to sleep earlier, but he’s by my side, laying in bed with me when I decide that my day is over.  Albeit, he’s laying there in the dark watching youtube or reading tech news on his phone, but now it’s at 12:30 instead of 2:30.
