I don't have a set bed time either. That is the biggest bonus of being a grown up. I can get up late and stay up later. For instance, I worked this weekend, 12 hour night shifts. I had to sleep during the day. That work schedule fucks up the whole weekend and during the school year can fuck up the whole week if I allow it. But I get paid for it and I prefer those hours. I choose them as it suits my life and my schedule and the laziness that I contain within me. Now it's summer. The kids don't have school and I get to chill out all night watching tv, on line and doing basically whatever the hell I feel like. Like right now, I blog.
My baby, my 7 year old will be 8 next month, has no set schedule. She can tell time, but she'll tell you like she tells me, "I don't look at the clock because I don't care what time it is." The girl wakes up when she wants, goes to sleep when she wants and follows a different internal clock than most people. The very same clock I follow. My boy, he's 11. Has always been a morning person. He has for years woken up with the sun and goes to bed and is asleep by 10pm. Anything past 10pm he gets cranky and fussy to this day. I don't try to change him. I don't try to change her. No one attempted to change me.
The point to all this is that the Rican seems to think it's important I go to bed when he goes to bed, that sitting up all night long is pointless and the day is for activity, not night. I don't take well to being told what to do or to someone infering that I should do something, like go to bed when I don't want to.
My fortune cookie last night at work read- Night people:anyone who goes to bed the same day they got up is a quitter.
And I ain't no quitter.
