Meeting deadlines, suffering relapses

By Katharine Swan On Monday, April 02, 2007 At 3:33 PM

I suffered a relapse last night...er, this morning. I didn't get to bed until nearly 7:30am, and got up at 2pm. It was for a good cause, though -- I worked through the night in order to meet a deadline (and make several hundred dollars).

Apparently when I went to bed I was not able to add and subtract correctly, because I set my alarms for about noon, thinking that would enough sleep. Needless to say, it wasn't.

It seems that to meet a deadline (and still be able to enjoy my weekend) I've sacrificed my hard work so far to change my sleep schedule. I'm hoping that a little over seven hours' sleep won't be enough, and I'll still be tired tonight, but we'll see.

What have you sacrificed in order to meet deadlines? Click on the post title to comment and tell me about it!

I did the exact same thing Sunday night/Monday morning! Only by the time I was done, it was time for the baby to get up so I just didn't bother going to bed. Needless to say, I crashed and burned last night!
