I engaged sleep mode at what would be considered a normal hour (or, at least, less late than usual) last night.

Today I am coming down with a cold.

I know not to do that again.

/Thanks, Obama.

Daytime activities don't exist when you spend most of daytime at work.

I leave for work at 8am, get home at 530pm, eat dinner, play with my daughter, and put her to bed by 9pm. My wife and I then clean up the house, and spend an hour or so together before she passes out.

When the fark else am I going to watch 3 episodes of Supernatural? I am only on season 3.

So 4+ days a week I pass out at 1am, and get back up at 7. Working really screws up my enjoyment of life.

Me?  Is that you?

My daughter, 2 year old, had major problems sleeping through the night and going down for naps. She would sleep for just over 2 hours before waking up, no matter what we tried. The issue was compounded by my daughter refusing to let me put her back to sleep and my wife staying home with her. For naps, it got to a point where it was taking almost 90 minutes to get her to sleep for just over 30. I convinced my wife to just give up on the nap, which was really difficult as it was the only break she gets while I am working, and see if it changed anything.

Sometimes my kid will fall asleep in the car at 5pm, and we have to wake her for dinner, sometimes she will fall asleep while relaxing in bed at 3 pm, but some days she won't nap at all. Since we stopped the naps though, it is rare that she is up more than once a night, and once or twice a week, she actually sleeps all night.

I looove sleep, especially since I got my memory foam mattress and pillow and satin sheets. I really need to take the advice in this article.

I think subby forgot to mention he had to be in bed in 26 minutes.

"When you say 'Bedtime, bedtime, bedtime!' that's not what the child hears. What the child hears is 'Lie down in the dark... for hours... and don't move... I'm locking the door now.' "

How many times must it be said. Sleep is a poor substitute for caffeine

Bookmarking this to read at 1am tonight when I'm manufacturing reasons not to go to bed.


/expert tip: "Just don't do that then." Awesome tip! Thanks, expert!

I had a mild case of insomnia for a couple of years. Now I have a pre-sleep period in which I fall asleep right after the weatherman and wake up while Letterman waxes inane with the latest poofhead guest.

Then it's off to the real sleep.

So this isn't a euphemism for sexy time?

Don't go. The drones need you; they look up to you.

I suffer from something similar.

I always put off brushing my teeth before bed.

When I brush my teeth that means No More Snacks.

That is too much of a commitment for me.

Hmm I suppose I can agree its a legit thing. I do it all the time, and sometimes I regret it and most times I don't. I leave for work 5 am, get home maybe 6 pm, then up at 4am to get ready again. So with a full 8 hours of sleep stacked on top of that, I'd have a measly 2 hours to cram in home responsibilities and some sort of leisure time. So rather than 8 hours of sleep, I get 4 or 5 max.

You need a shorter commute.

A flying car or teleporter is more like it. Trip to work takes me 24 minutes in the morning with no traffic. Rush hour traffic here is brutal, and it more than triples that time on the way home.

My father is a lucky man. His architectural firm relocated their office halfway across town in the early 90s. So since then, he's been able to walk to work if he cares to and the weather cooperates.

Sure enough, it's midnight and my six year old is still up. He wants me to come sit with him but if I put it off a few more minutes he'll just fall asleep with the Kindle in his lap.

Can't sleep when I spend the bulk of my day driving and working. My insomnia has allowed me to sleep for 3-5 hours every day and still function, so I got that going for me...

Wow, this describes my current situation almost exactly.

Also, I'm currently procrastinating bedtime.

I get up at 5:30 in the morning and start work at 6:30am four days a week. Sleep pretty much catches up with me at night whether I want it to or not.

Work is definitely overrated.
