Do you go to bed right when you get home? Do you go right to sleep once you do get to bed or do you need time to wind down?

 

No, I am used to being up at the moment with my child and am working on catching a nap while she is in pre-school part-time.  I need at least 10 minutes to wind down before I fall asleep.

I usually plan out what were having for dinner at work
Stop by the grocery store on the way home to pick up what I need
Throw it all in the crock pot on low and go to bed

clever, very clever.  My Mother just gave me her old crock pot and so far I have done a stew and an apricot glazed turkey breast and both have come out great!  I really like to use it but I am a Nervous Nelly and freak out thinking that maybe it will cause an electrical fire while I am asleep!

I get home @650. I love the crockpot idea, I'm gonna have to try that. I get home, put some laundry in the wash then get my daughter up for school and have her there by 0815. Sleep when I get home till I have to go back @1400 to pick her up.

No I usually get home change clothes watch tv wind down play on Internet clean up some if I can't sleep then try to get in bed by 2am it takes me about 15-20 minutes to fall asleep most nights some nights I can't sleep but only 2-3 hours then it's back up @ 6:20 to get kids ready for school & then I come home & try to either go back to bed if I'm just exhausted or I'll do housework of a little while & then catch 2-3 more hours of sleep before work again.

I need time to wane down.

Have a cup of hot tea.

I watch t.v. before I go to sleep.
