Written when I need sleep.......
As I related before, we were so glad to fall into a 13 hour day with Sunday's off at this Gate. However, that changed effective Friday. Now we are on a 24/7 schedule and I just can not adjust my body to this. Having the time change on Sunday was not a help either.
Last year Gate Guarding it was 24/7. Len would go to bed around 7 pm, I would wake him around 2 am and then I would sleep until usually 7 or 8 am. Wish I could find a way to sleep 7 or 8 hours but that hasn't happened in years.
Since Friday I've had very little sleep. The longest was 4 hours. Last night Leonard went to bed at 7 but could not sleep. So at 9 he got up and I went in. I was still awake at 4 this morning. He would take naps between arrivals in his recliner. I got up at 6:30. Maybe 1.5 hours sleep.
Len took a couple of naps this afternoon. I tried. Would fall off for a few minutes and wake.
So here we are tonight. He went to bed two hours ago. I can hear him tossing and turning. I have 5 more hours before I need to get him up. Here is hoping when I do I drop off easily. I am exhausted to the point of feeling nausea.
Looks like I need to get a new computer. My older computer runs on XP. That is the one I use to get online. My newer Toshiba has been a problem since day one. It runs on Windows 7. Most of the time I can not get further than my homepage using my Verizon Mifi. Usually not a problem when using a campground's or other WiFi. Windows will no longer support XP effective April 8.
There goes the computer I rely on. I've been thinking I need a lighter computer.
So, fellow bloggers how do I get to sleep and what would you suggest in looking for a new computer?
