Right now Max is taking a nap. He's sleeping on a pillow in the living room. Please try and remember to be as quiet as possible when leaving a comment. I would hate for the jingle alert that the email makes every time I get a new comment to wake him up. He woke up kind of early today. 7:00 AM if I'm not mistaken.
Usually he sleeps until 8 and on really lazy days he sleeps all the way till 9. Sleeping till 10:00 AM is unheard of for Max.
My sleeping schedule on the other hand is all sorts of fucked up.
As some of you probably suspected I work at night. That's why when I leave a comment on most blogs the time stamp usually indicates that it's some absurd hour of the night. My friends in other countries probably don't notice this as much because they live across some random ocean and probably just assume that I'm independently wealthy and can blog or leave a comment whenever I want to. Unfortunately, that's not the case.
Since I don't work Friday or Saturday I usually just stay up during the day when I get home from work on Friday and go to sleep at a normal time on Friday night. Then on Sunday night (the start of my work week) I go in exhausted from being up all day watching football, eating, and spending time with the fam.
From Monday through Thursday I adjust my sleeping schedule according to Allyson's work and school schedule. It's madness really.
Back during the Summer when I was reading the Harry Potter books some days I would be so enthralled in what I was reading that I would not sleep when I was supposed and I would go over 24 hours without sleep.
Obviously my sleep deprivation was at its worst when I was reading the last two books. It was worth it for the most part, but now I realize that reading books really isn't conducive to my life style and is colossal waste of time right now.
Maybe when Allyson's out of school and Max is in school my sleep pattern will be more regular and then I'll be able to spend an endless amount of time getting lost in some book. Maybe next time I'll read about some kid who decides to float down the Mississippi River on a raft.
It's now 1:09 PM and Max is still asleep in the living room on a pillow. I wonder if he's drooled on it...
PS Max usually sleeps with his eyes closed, but in this pic he's sleeping with his eyes open and it almost looks like he was looking at me.
