Solomon either needs some sleep-or a gardner

FOR THE LAST month, I’ve been hosting a morning radio show. That means I get up so early that the moon doubles over with laughter while watching me grope for my keys.

It’s not easy for a guy like me to get up that early, because normally I’m a night owl, and in addition to the radio gig and my writing, I’ve got two other jobs – husband and father.

My after-work time is eaten up by family activities. It begins with picking up Eve from school and listening to her talk about everything from Ariana Grande to that weird kid in fifth-period science class.

When I get home I talk to my wife, LaVeta. Two days per week, we launch into our regularly scheduled argument. When that’s over, and she hits me with the silent treatment, I spend some time with my son. After dinner I go to LaVeta to admit I’m wrong, even when I’m not. By then it’s 10 o’clock. I sometimes write until midnight. Unfortunately, I get up at 4:45, so you can see my dilemma.

I’m tired.

Because I love doing the radio show, I can do three hours on adrenaline, but afterward, I’m just not me.
