Waking up .. at the right moment
Today has been a great day.
No, the wife is in her usual weekend clean up mode and the kids are doing the same things they do..
But there has been a marked change in me. No grumpiness for not being able to catch up on lost sleep from the last week.
There has been a positive attitude to things.
The last week has been very tiring with 2 AM phone calls and lots of work.
Decided to download an iPhone App called "sleep cycle".
This app uses the accelerometer in the iPhone, figures out when you are in deep sleep and when you are rolling around in the bed and times it so that you wake up when you are in deep sleep. The alarm sounds are wonderful and they gradually fade in to high volume.
As an added bonus, it keeps all the statistics and allows you to send the graphs to your gmail account!
In all my life no one has ever done a wonderful job of waking me up like this!
Thank you Sleep Cycle!
Thank you iPhone 3GS !
Thank you Technology !
Now all those <6 hour sleep nights are not going to be that bad after all!
There are other reasons for the exuberance.. but that will be explained later..
