Hot Tip: "Nothing good happens after midnight." A few years or more ago, a coworker of mine said this to me. I don't remember if it came before or after a story as to why, likely multiple stories he was involved in, but I know it had to do with alcohol and tomfoolery. I understood at the time that being under the influence after midnight probably wasn't the best use of time and probably wouldn't end well if done enough times. Hence, the story-worthy tales of debauchery we've all heard. I agreed with his finding, knowing from experience that any time that I was up late beyond midnight, I wasn't really doing anything necessary, productive, or in my best interest. Since that day, every now and then that line pops into my head. Even though I don't go out late and cause trouble, it reminds me that I'm better off going to bed than staying up too late to watch TV, to look at my phone, or to do anything, really. And, actually, how this applies to your own life's clock is flexible. Interpret it however you wish and it's probably both relatable and relevant.

Present Situation: All of the kids are in bed and that means adult TV night! That still sounds dirty. My wife will eventually get around to running, and I am working on this note. She's doing yoga now. That's not running. *eye roll* Maybe I'll watch TV without her. It's been a long day and the Epic Winter Snowstorm of the Century: The Weekly Edition (how some people view life EVERY time it snows) has made it a bit longer. Another good long run in this afternoon after some stretching. Tonight, I shoveled what had accumulated in the driveway this afternoon and also what the snowplow left at the end of the driveway. I probably wouldn't have if it wasn't for the need to put my garbage and recycle bins at the end of the driveway. I haven't had a lot of sleep over the last week as far as time spent sleeping. The quality has been good, though. So, taking all of that into consideration, tonight should help out a lot. Cuddle with me, glorious sleep.

I've got some Angry Winter™ available for sale.
