Actually I turned my computer back on in order to check postal rates.
I'm in the middle of a very long, informative, and (hopefully) entertaining thank-you letter.
I got in trouble for sending a "late" thank-you last year and once again I see annoyance that I didn't send something entertaining by New Year's.
I could send an expedient "thank-you" but it would be short and sappy/insipid.
I'm on page #4 (typed with Microsoft Word) and it still is not finished. I hope to finish it tomorrow and send it.
I took a look at ABW because I'm always in the pursuit of something interesting myself -- going back to bed now

I'm on the west coast. It's not yet midnight here. I regularly go to bed after 1am. I would stay up until 3am if I didn't have to get up in the morning to go to a day j*b.-Don't criticize anyone til you've walked a mile in their shoes. Then when you do criticize them, you'll be a mile away and have their shoes.

Days are for sleeping, especially at this time of year. Who needs to be up to have the glare on the screen or look at the dreary w*nter weather?! I only "do days" when I have to deal with some place(s) that still follows the archaic practice of closing.

But the problem is, that it's not that easy or wise, to try to find female mates that qualify, during the night. ;-)

It's the only time the phone is not ringing and emails slow down. I find it to be one of my most productive times, between midnight and 2:00 AM. Fortunately I'm one of those people that only needs few hours sleep.Ron Bechdolt | Affiliate Program Management Consultant

My best writing always happens at night, I tend to stay up for a while after my wife has gone to bed. I've always been a night owl, but less so these days. Back in the mid 90's, when I was going to try my hand as a novelist, I wrote an entire novel (handwritten, this was before I owned a laptop) in a Denny's in Boca Raton, Florida, typically between 11pm and 6am. I don't stay up much past 1am these days.

Morning people are respected.
Night people are feared.

I end up working until after 1 AM most nights even if I have to get up early to take my daughter to school. My brain activates at midnight no matter how tired I am.
When the house is finally quiet and no one is demanding attention, I can work without distractions and ideas start popping into my brain. I do my best work in the middle of the night.
Thank God for affiliate marketing or I'd be a complete basket case.Peace,

The wee hours is when I get some of my best work done! Nobody calling on the phone and nothing on TV to distract!

I try to go to bed around 1 am, but then my significant other starts snoring really really loud, so I get up and start working. Sometimes I'm still working when his 6 AM alarm goes off.

My S/O is an elementary school teacher,goes to bed early, so I put the kids to bed, well they actually do that themselves, I just make the rounds to tell them all goodnight and give them one last chance to tell me things they need, then I check on my spouse to see what she needs of me, then I sit at my desk or the couch with my laptop and stay up until about 2 or 3 am working.....I am not a morning person, but it amazes me how often people say I must be...nope I am a morning monster, I get up between 5:45 and 6:30 to get everyone ready for school then head to the office....now on the weekends I sleep in as late as I possibly can.....except for days like tomorrow, my youngest has a 9:00am basketball game, so nix the sleeping in and forget the nap because I have a hair appointment at 2:30 that will take at least 2 hours.....Now Sunday, I am so out of commission.....bed, sleep....yummy!!!!!!!!!!

I once had a job with a Hellish commute where I had to get up at 5:20 AM each day.
Ooh, and my "first job" I had to get up at 4:00 AM --forgot about that one
Although sometimes I wish I had had kids, it's more of a fantasy desire
I am amazed at how some Moms [in reality] can wake up really early each morning to get the kids off to school -- I admire them.

but we drink at night after they go to bed in order to remain sane........
