We are celebrating that the place I have been consulting at has decided to hire me on long-term! I'm pretty pleased and excited about this.

 

Congratulations! If this change has the same positive impact for you as it did for me and Husband, enjoy every little benefit. :)

Getting up 2 hours early Monday and Wednesday caught up to me. I got home super early yesterday, and then took a 2 hour nap.

For a late dinner, my wife and I went out to a nice ramen place near our house. We are celebrating that the place I have been consulting at has decided to hire me on long-term! I'm pretty pleased and excited about this. I'm tired of the contractor's life, always bouncing from one company to another after 6 months to a year. And I should be getting a pay raise with this job, so that's nice, too. :) I like the team I'm working with here, and it's a reasonable commute... and it's a global company, so I have tentative plans to eventually move countries while keeping my job. Here's hoping that works out. ;)

 

That's all great stuff, including the ramen, the raise and the stability. :) What country you planning on migrating to?

The place I want to eventually get to is Norway or Sweden, but the realistic mid-term goal is the Netherlands. That's because the company I work for has a fairly large IT office in Rotterdam, so I don't think it should be too difficult to convince them to let me change offices. I need to focus on my communication skills and creating trust with my team here first, so that once I'm an ocean away, they won't be worried about whether I'm going to keep up my projects and such. So it's probably at least 1-2 years away.

Any thoughts what's making bed time tough this past weekend?

 

It's really just that I allow myself to stay up later on weekends. But a savvy observer will see that even though I'm okay with "later", my actual bedtime is really "late". So it's probably a matter of self-discipline, and not letting weekends run away with me.

I love the colors you use for tracking. It makes it so easy to see. 

 

Lol, thanks. I imagine it's not so easy for a colorblind person to see, but no one has complained yet...

My brother is color blind, the struggle is real. For those of us who can see color, this is a great way to manage things.

Yesterday, I had to take the car in for maintenance at 9:30 am, so my wife and I agreed to do our next day of lifting today. But this morning I had a hell of a time waking up, so we didn't do it. D: Need to do it when I get home from work tonight...

 

Update: I did it!

Curious about something... why not use the blue light blocking glasses? Do they not work, or are you replacing them with an alternative way to start winding the brain down?

I'm just not using them because I don't think to. I'm supposed to use them when looking at a screen after 8pm, to avoid blue wavelengths of light. If I'm just reading or something then it's fine, but I've been mostly watching youtube videos until almost 10pm without them. So... it's an area that could see some improvement, to be sure. Maybe I should put them by the media computer instead of by my bed.

I would definitely suggest keep the glasses where they are needed the most. Make it as easy as possible to use them. :)

I accidentally turned off my alarm this morning (instead of snoozing it) and slept until 9:15. Then I woke up very pleasantly and feeling rested. Of course, now I'm really late to work... I thought I was getting things back where they needed to be when I started lifting, but now everything's slid back to being 2 hours behind again. =_= I don't know how to stop this cycle.

Do you just need more sleep than you're getting? Actually 9 hours sounds like enough, if it were good quality. Hmmm.

I definitely need more sleep. I'm probably getting to sleep around 1-2 AM right now, and trying to wake up at 7:30. But I've mostly been sleeping in until almost 9. So I guess that means I need a minimum of 7.5 hours, which sounds about right....
