How much sleep did you get last night?



Have you ever noticed that how much sleep someone gets shows a lot about their personality, interests and life circumstances? Such a simple little number can say so much about
us!

Are you a night owl, do you work night shifts, do you have a newborn? Maybe you had a work project you had to stay up for or your family came down with the flu. Maybe you decided to work on your blog (ahem) during your few childless free hours when you should have been snoozing.

So how much sleep did you get last night? And, most importantly, WHY?

  1. I got maybe 3 -5 hours of very intermittent sleep. I'm in the hospital with my 8 month old who has RSV, croup and pneumonia...

  2. Hi, I am from "Christian Girly Girls" and "Faithful Cafe". I just put a fantastic review for your site on Alexa. If you could do the same for me I would sure appreciate it. I know you have been to at least one of my blogs. If you could review both of them, that would be so great. www.faithfulcafe.com and www.christiangirlygirls.com
    I think it is great to support eachother. If you want to sponsor eachother, we could put eachothers buttons on our blogs. Let me know.

  4. So sorry Becky! I wish your sweet baby the best! Croup and pneumonia are no fun.

  6. I forgot to respond!

    I got about 5 hours sleep. I try to get 8 but it doesn't often happen. I had a hard time falling asleep last night (turn off brain, please!) and then woke up early for some reason. I'm making an impromptu trip out to missouri tomorrow so maybe that is what kept me up.

  10. Visiting from the alexa drop hop! Cute blog. I'm a night owl, always have been. I guess since my oldest was little I found it just easier to do everything while everyone sleeps. The cleaning and laundry etc. That way I wake up to a clean house and its ready to destroy again. :)

    Come visit me when you get a chance :)

  11. I managed to get about 8.5 hours last night. Part of that, though, is that my husband and I slept in about an hour longer than we normally do. I'm 32 weeks pregnant and chronically exhausted/uncomfortable, and he's not feeling well, so it was nice to be able to stay in bed an extra hour and snuggle. I'm working from home today, so no rushing to get a shower and get dressed. Trying to soak up the last few weeks of blissful uninterrupted sleep before the baby gets here!

    BTW, I found you through the Alexa drop hop hosted by Measuring Flower and Aubut Family. I love your blog! It's like an encyclopedia for new moms! I'm from When Robots Reproduce: http://robots.thearbweb.com. :)

  12. I'm a night owl too Veronica. But I usually try to do enjoyable stuff in the evenings--well, part of the time. I usually save the cleaning for when the kids at awake. I'm impressed you can get yourself to clean after they fall asleep!

  13. Katie,
    Too bad 8.5 hours of pregnancy sleep is equal to 5! At least that is the case with me, good luck getting some sleep in before baby gets here. And I'm glad you like the blog :)

  16. I got about 8 hrs of broken sleep due to little one feeding twice in the night. Before I had Jack, I had no idea how messed up my sleep was going to get and I LOVE sleeping :( Thanks to your blog, I understand it a little better!

  17. Carolyn W,
    I don't think most people, myself included!, understand how bad that sleep deprivation could be. I know quite a few people who worked night shifts and 60-80 hour weeks before having babies and even they were in shock with the sleep deprivation that a baby brings :)
