    Man, you shouldn't be too much worried.
    I have no children and yet the prospect of getting up at 7:00 scares the hell out of me!

    I know that because of having triplets, I learned the art of napping at red lights...
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    No, I did/do that at my desk between steps of the carbon process... (our safelights are amber).

    Not necessarily... but I suspect my kids would be a bit lonely.

    Love my guys, now 9 and 13. Yes, I am years behind in my printing backlog, and the negs are what you get while going with the flow that is family life.

    Consider signing on for a postcard exchange or group print exchange.
    Then there is a fixed deadline to put something out.

    You will be experienced at mutli tasking and breaking big tasks into manageable bites to advance between interupptions that are usually called parenting moments.
    Kids gives you that skill in spades (or can) .

    I find that postcard exchanges are about the only me time I can claim to get into the darkroom at some months of the year these days.
    my real name, imagine that.

    Anyone remotely capable of saying "sleep is over rated" just needs a lot less of it than I do. It's one of life's greatest things. If I get enough good sleep I can handle whatever comes along. Not enough or not good enough quality of sleep and the slightest thing is insurmountable. Americans in general don't get enough rest.

    Explains my wacky brain! Whenever I want to have a printing session, it requires me to miss a night's sleep and stay up for 36 hours or more straight. Sometimes I can sneak in a couple hours of sleep in that period. I use to have two to three printing sessions a week, now it is one every couple of weeks.

    Thanks, Vaughn - I think that study starts to explain a lot. I wish they'd also look at interrupted sleep. I sometimes get close to 7 or 8 hours a night, but never in a solid chunk. As for the immune system effects, I know my asthma has been worse since having Nate and getting less sleep (I don't think it's just age).

    I just hope I can get him into hiking enough that he'll stay safe in the woods with me so I can take him along.
