anyone else having a time getting to sleep tonight?

i dozed off on the couch earlier for a couple hours...
then, i had the guy from craigslist drop off my tanks(he gave me a 55 for free even though the trade was for a 60, so i got two tanks) at about 10 and i have been cleaning and getting them ready.
filter is plugged in and the bio wheel is getting saturated.

i am tired but i am also wired at the same time. i can tell it's gonna be an all nighter.
got my coffee here and first thing in the morn, i get to go to the fish store and and see whats what.

gonna grab me a few starter fish and get to it.

so, who is awake and 'should' be asleep?

Not to often, only when I have to much stuff on my head then I cant sleep and to make it worst, since I got no sleep, cant do the stuff that kept me awake all night, just hate when that happens....... and my boss too.

You know, I used to think that I had insomnia but then I realized that I simply do not like sleeping! I don't like the actual process of going to bed to sleep!
I don't like lying in bed, waiting to fall asleep.

Typically, I stay up until I just can't stay awake. Then I literally stumble off to bed. Of course, I sleep like a log but I typically "pop" awake at around 8 am. Keep in mind that I also seem to fall asleep at around 4 am! That's not a lot of sleep.

I do this for about three or four days until I simply cannot keep my eyes open and I crash. I'll go to bed early -- early for me -- and that is around 11 pm. The only constant is that I almost always "pop" awake at 8 in the morning.

I don't nap through the day but I will admit that I will fall asleep on occasion while watching golf on television. But then, who doesn't fall asleep while watching golf?

I've kept this sleep schedule for as long as I can remember and I just don't seem to have any ill effects from it. Every morning at eight or so I wake up feeling fresh and relaxed. I spring from bed ready to start the day.

I sympathize with you.

I only sleep out of sheer exhaustion when i'm working. When i dont work, i hardly ever sleep! Part of it its that i come from a long line of imsomniacs, the other is that i have a shot of espresso coffee every night.

I like to be up at night. I think sleep is a waste. I can call my brother at 3 am and although he works all the time, i know he's going to be up.

Its my mothers fault.

I personlay LOVE SLEEP! I just don't like to sleep at night. During the week their is nothing to do during the day so I sleep during the day. At night I work and lurk around ATS/BTS . During the weekend its the same thing, but instead of working I party hard and recover during the day. Well 3 hours and 20 min before I can even think about sleep.

I can't sleep tonight because of a bad head cold. It's going to be a loong day. Oh well, maybe I'll be tired enough to sleep tonight; I didn't sleep Sunday night either. No big deal lots of people have trouble sleeping from time to time.

Hope you feel better, hon. Have a good day.

Insomnia, I don't see any insomnia, and I've been up all night watching for it.

Tea sounds like a great idea dgtempe, I'll go put the kettle on.

I feel like Red Zinger with buckwheat honey. It's been my favorite since I was a kid and mom wouldn't let us drink coffee.

well it's 5:30 am and it's time to hit the sack......I'm going to wake up in two and a half hours! Ok...maybe i'll sleep in and grab an extra half hour of sleep.

I'm nothing without my three hours a day!!!!!

All I can say is that I'm now certain whether I have insomnia or not.....maybe its just ATS that keeps me up?
