My first insomnia post!

It is 12:22 AM EST and I am currently failing in my quest to establish an early bedtime.  Okay, earlier bedtime anyway.  See according to this article, which I stumbled across during a different evening of late night web surfing, my ideal bedtime is about 10:30.  Which really doesn't sound like an unreasonable time to go to bed.  I leave work at 5:00.  My walk home is about 15 - 20 minutes, which leaves me about five hours to get things done around the house, eat, and relax....and yet...

Here it is 12:27AM EST, and I am sitting at my dining room the table at which I eat, writing this blog post about how I've yet to establish an earlier bedtime.

I should be motivated to do this because the fact is that on those rare nights when I do get to bed, let's say before 11:00 in the evening, I definitely feel better the next day.  In fact I usually feel so high energy that I am almost manic. I am positively brimming with go-get-em.  Of course, the drawback is that since this is not a normal state of being for me, I've no idea how to handle it and those end up being the days of starting a lot of projects without actually finishing any of them.

It is now 12:38 AM EST, and I am deciding that no matter how awake I might feel, going to bed is the responsible thing to do.

Oh crap.  I think I just acted like a grownup.
