    Well, I fell asleep sometime between 1:00 AM & 1:30 AM and woke up a little before 9:00 Am. I

    It was so dark, rainy and cloudy that I could not see out of my windows at all, they were so fogged up. My apartment's on the top of a 30 story building and pretty much has floor to ceiling, wall to wall windows throughout -- so it felt like I was in the ocean in a huge air-bubble box in being showered by a storm. :lol:

    After a couple of phone calls, I decided to go back to sleep at about 10:30 and woke up a little before noon. So I got a little over 8 1/2 hours of sleep altogether -- and I feel great!

    I am headed off to the gym in a bit.

    Since we seem to be continuing this thread, instead of starting a new one, I am going to ask to change the name March to April so we don't lose our history and anyone can join at any time.

    I thought about that -- but I thought having "goals" was better than open ended.

    But maybe I should just start a new thread.

    You guys are all just soooo lucky!

    I have to sleep in a single bedroom with my 2 year old son! He is currently going through an insecurity phase and needs me to be next to him when he's sleeping.

    Unfortunately sleeping is his least favourite pastime - this combined with exzma means that he spends the entire night wriggling, moaning, twisting, turning, stretching, flaling his arms and legs about, scratching, asking for a glass of water and looking out the window for the first signs of dawn at which point he says,

    "Is it morning time?"

    I honestly don't know how I'm able to get any sleep at all these days but I always seem to be OK the next day and it hasn't affected my training. I must admit to getting tired after lunch though.

    Can't wait till he grows out of this. Hopefully I won't have to wait until he's 21!
