I don't know if it's the 11pm-7am work schedule or just the fact that I'm working 40 hours a week again, but I find that I'm sleeping much of the night (which should be my up-and-doing-things time) on Saturdays. Grumble.

Ah, yes. That happened to me as well for the first few months I worked nights. I think after about two months it changed. Now I sleep the mornings away on the weekends.

Ah, that's good to know.

The bit of trouble I've been having sleeping during the day this time has surprised me, since it's always seemed that I have an especial talent for sleeping. Although I finally moved into the guest room and hung some towels over the bright window (this being easier that making the master bedroom dark during the day) and this seems to help.

One of my friends here is working about the same hours. She switches to a normal sleep pattern on weekends, adding a nap on the day of the first night off. Personally, I think she's mad to do it that way, but just wanted to let you know that you're not the only one.

Hope you get better hours soon.

She switches to a normal sleep pattern on weekends… That seems a bit crazy to me, although I suppose she has her reasons. I did a little flipping around for Confusion (and I'm very glad I was able to do that — I would have missed too much good stuff otherwise), but I was still in the position of wandering around at 5am and wondering "where is everybody." Well, not exactly, but you get my drift. I showed up at one of the music rooms Friday night (well … early Saturday morning) just as Chas and Becca were trying to pack up. Kept 'em up two hours more, as Becca pointed out. She threatened to keep me up for two hours some time, which sounds like fun to me, but I suspect she'll never follow through on it. ;>
