    My wife. I'm an early to bed person...usually 9 or 9:30 to read a bit and fall asleep. My wife likes to stay up watching TV and most often will doze off on the couch. She usually wakes up sometime around 1 or 1:30 but still has to do her night time stuff like get the makeup off, contacts out, brush teeth, etc...I keep telling her she should do that when I'm going to bed so she can just crawl in and not wake me up. It's about 50/50 if she wakes me up or not...but I have a really hard time getting back to sleep if she does.

    I have no idea what the appeal is of staying up watching TV when you're tired and you know you're going to nod off in about 20 minutes...but that's her thang...

    My partner tend to stay up forever, too. And, vn though he does just climbing be ithmehe still waes me up. I ge comes to be early he starts snoring before I manage to fall asleep.

    Then there is my cat.He's an awesome,cute cat, but he often cannot make up his mind about if he should sleep in the bedroom or not. And if he wants to get outside he scratches my bed!- Also, if he decides to stay in the room he a) will find a place on my side of the bed that seriously restricts my movement, and b) still want out of the room at 5am.

    Sometimes I cannot sleep because my mind is racing with thoughts I have problems switching off, too. Or because I am exited about something the next day, or because I know I will have to get up early and somehow that seems to mean my body decides not to sleep at all, then. .. But those things aren't constants. My cat and my partner are.

    Every night my mind races as I ponder these issues:

    Is there an afterlife ? If so, are evil people punished there ? Are the good rewarded ?
    Is God a micromanager, or more of a big-picture guy ?

    What is the true meaning of life ?
    ... and am I living it to my full potential ? Will my great-great grandchildren know anything about me ? (probably not)

    Why does terrible, horrific things happen to wonderful people ? How will the end of humanity occur ? Will it be once cataclysmic event or a slow demise ? As a species, will we escape this planet and continue our existence in other parts of the galaxy (or universe) ?

    In 100 years (give or take) there will be all new people, will they think like us ? Will they have our values ?
    Will they have learned nothing from history ? Have we learned nothing from history ?

    I often lie in bed, staring at the ceiling, thinking:

    Why does God hate Cleveland ?

    Could be worse. Could be Detroit.
