Another sleep update!

Cause I know you're all dying to hear it! Oddly enough, I had some sort of alarm malfunction. If you weren't with us earlier, when I described my mostly untested method for getting up on time, it's very simple:

Decide what time you want to get up. Set your alarm for 20 minutes earlier. Then set your alarm for every 2-minute increment until you get to the time you actually want to get up. I'm at 8:00am, 8:02, 8:04, all the way till 8:20. Baby steps. I call it the 'brute force' method. I liken it to having someone work on your house, the noise constantly waking you up until it happens so many times you can't get back to sleep. As I've said before, this wouldn't be necessary except I work from home and can make my own hours. Like you might imagine, that's really messed up my sleep schedule, I'm trying to whip it back into shape.

Anyway, this morning my alarm stopped 3-4 alarms in (of 11 total alarms). I thought maybe I slept through them, but now I'm certain they didn't go off. I wonder if it's due to a glitch in my phone, or what. I'm going to try to look for a different alarm program later. Anyway, at 8:35am I roused, looked at my watch, and hopped in the shower. Crisis averted! YAY!!!
