Midnights.  My youngest son is working midnights at a greenhouse warehouse for the summer.  I am his designated driver to and from work. I have not  figured out a good schedule for sleep yet. By the time I do, I imagine he will be back at school in London, and I will be basking in the glory of being able to go to bed at my normal bedtime of  8:00 p.m.– all the while missing his mostly sunny disposition. (I don’t go to sleep at 8:00, but nestle in with some books and magazines, just in case you were wondering if I am 102.)

Since I freelance, I do not have a 9 – 5 schedule, so I have been free to experiment. So I tried to nap in the afternoon. Didn’t work. Then I tried to nap when I bring him home at 8:15 a.m. Didn’t work. Then I tried from 9 p.m.  to 11 p.m. Did not work! I have trouble napping in the daytime, and when I try to get some sleep at night before he goes to work, I wake up groggy and nauseated for some reason.

So, I am just putting this in the good parenting knapsack and taking one for the gipper.
