We night people somehow believe we need less sleep than day people and our friends and family don't seem to understand that interupting our sleep time is NOT OK. Let me just set the record straight. NIGHT PEOPLE NEED TO SLEEP.
I find it has been easier if I establish a fairly consistant routine. I go to bed when I get home, get up mid afternoon and go about life. Sleep is a priority. I almost never answer the phone or the door if it wakes me up. That's why God made answering machines
I have worked nights for most of my married life, I have kids that are busy and involved. It's not easy at times but it is not impossible either.
Somepeople just have a harder time with nights than others, but look around your city on the way to work sometime and realize how many people work nights, I think according to the census dept it is about 1/3 of all American workers. That is significant. We don't work nights because we couldn't get a day job. Night jobs are just as significant and valuable as any job. We work nights for lots of reasons. But dress rehersal for days is not one of them.
Hope you can make the adjustment
