    I have noticed that ninety percent of the business owners on here have to go to bed by 11:00.

    I'm all over the board when it comes to going to bed. Some nights I will go to bed at 10pm and other nights its after midnight. I have a weird schedule though, not very typical.

    For example, this past weekend I took a nigh shift on the ambulance. I woke up Saturday morning at 9:30am (slept in), stayed up all night to work and finally went to bed at 7:30am Sunday morning, slept for about 3 hours and woke back up at 11:00am-ish. I then stayed up all day and went to bed Sunday night at 11:00pm.

    Haha brad I know what you mean. I don't look forward to that.

    OP, are you saying they have to go to bed before 11? Or up way after?
    You need to realize 10% of this site are legit business owners.

    I'm on nights right now, will get off at 6, mow until noon, sleep 4 and be back in. Tomorrow off at 6, no sleep - mow till dark.

    Sleep is a fickle animal... If I think I;m missing something I should be doing -- there ain't no way I'll ever drop off.

    11pm????

    I try to be in bed by 9:30 if I can.

    Either I'm getting busy and need to be in bed early, or I'm getting old....

    I think hes trying to say that most of the posters here are kids.

    Personally I would love to be in bed before 11

    Funny how it works. When we were kids we would try to push to go to bed as late as we could. Always trying to get a later bedtime.

    Now as adults, all we want to do is go to bed earlier...haha

    My problem is Im a night person. Every morning I drag my butt out of bed saying, "Just get up, and Ill go to bed early tonight"

    Then tonight comes and its midnight and im still up.
