Two Sleeps And Me

I’ve posted a couple times previously about the topic of Two Sleeps

below are selected sleep records from the app that goes with my watch. All of them are from about the past week.

As you can see, almost every night, I wake up in the middle of the night. I used to be really worried about it, almost panic trying to force myself to go back to sleep, but now I’m getting used to it, and maybe even enjoying it.

It’s also interesting to me to see that I seldom sleep even 6 hours in a night. Tuesday and Sunday I slept for a pretty long time.

Anybody else have experiences with two sleeps? Nobody that I recall has ever said that they have.

Have a great day! Movie Night at the Westin tonight!

Cloudy Day Supermoon

Today is our first cloudy day in a long, long time. I was actually planning on driving the van instead of the scooter today. Just to see if it still runs.

I didn’t sleep well last night. It was a nice big moon and I was up, looking at it and walking around and thinking about stuff.

regular moon vs supermoon

The moon was huge when it came up last night, My mom said it was a supermoon. Later in the night, high in the sky, it didn’t look so big. (It wasn’t as cloudy last night)

Have a happy hump day!

Fishing Tournament Awards Ceremony

Last night we went to the 19th Annual Fishing Tournament Awards Ceremony.


It was Ok, wife had to go for work.

Stayed up late though. Woke up early too. I slept like a rock though.


Just not long enough.

It’ll be ok. 👌

It’s a beautiful morning. Have a great day!

What Would Happen…

What would happen if I just went to sleep whenever I wanted? Would a regular sleep pattern develop?


I usually have a flash of tiredness after dinner every night. What If I went to bed then? I’d probably wake up at 11 or 12. Then what?

I usually wake up at 3 or 4 every morning, I’ve learded to force myself back to sleep. (It isn’t that hard, believe me!) What if I got up then? How would I make it through the day at work?

There’s lots of interesting information if you Google “two sleeps”

It would be an interesting experiment to try sometime.

I find it hard to believe that it’s Thursday already. When the week started, it seemed insurmountable.

Have a great day!

Mid Week Post

Slept pretty good last night. woke at 4:30, which is better than earlier. I’ve been taking melatoin every night for years, I think it wears off about 3AM…

Yesterday was HOT! A taste of summer. Then yesterday afternoon, a cold front rolled in, and it started raining minutes after I got home on the scooter. Now it’s cloudy and breezy but not supposed to rain anymore.

Today I have an eye doctors appointment. First one after I got my new glasses, six months ago or so.

Guess that’s about it for today, Have a good day!

New Sleep Pattern

Seems like for the past few weeks or months I’ve been waking up about 3:00 or 3:30 ish, and being wide awake till about 4, then being sound asleep and brain damaged when the alarm goes off at 5.

In the olden days, I could not fall asleep, now I drop off pretty quickly, but notice the waking up in the middle of the night lately.

And weird dreams in the morning sleep.

I wonder if I ought to just start getting up at 3:30 or whenever I wake up/

Brain Dead Tuesday

It was very hard to get up this morning. I was dreaming that my wife, and a navy friend were driving in San Francisco (I think) when I saw a friend of mine from here in Cayman. I said pull over, and we parked illegally and were walking over to the sidewalk where my friend was when the alarm went off.

Went running this moning, I tried to take Sheba but she couldn’t keep up. Didn’t go very far when I turned around and came back.

Right now I just feel tired, and want to go back to bed.

Not much more than that to say this morning. There’s not much more than that in my brain.

It”s very cloudy, and very windy, with the clouds travelling against the wind.


My wife got me a Fitbit Charge, she’s had one a while and likes it. I expressed an interest and she surprised me!


It seems pretty cool. It’s fun entering all the info from the food you eat, keeping track of everything. I especially like the  bar code scanner.

It measures your activity during the day, and how you sleep at night.

I wear it in the shower, but not in the sea, not sure how waterproof it is.. I’ll find out, but I’m pretty sure you can’t take it diving.

Superbowl was yesterday. Both teams sucked. Denver had no third down conversions but won it. Carolina didn’t play well at all either.

It’s Monday, I’m tired and crabby. It’s cold and wwindy outside…Good day for working, if there ever was


Have a wonderful week!

Melatonin Dosage

I’ve been taking Melatonin before bed for over a year. Over time, I have found that 15 mg is the perfect dose. My pharmacist says this is fine. We have these 10 mg tablets. I was taking 2 before bed. Forthe past few days, I’ve been taking only 1. I notice that I’m waking up early and not able to sleep again. I guess it’s back to 2 again.
