sleep avoidance theater

Our boys will do just about anything to keep themselves awake. As bedtime nears they turn into total wild men, wrestling and fighting and running around and generally causing mayhem, until they sit down a moment and collapse from sheer exhaustion.

I just realized they get it from me. The only difference is instead of getting physically active to stay awake, I run around online. I have to be up for work in less than six hours. Tomorrow isn't going to be pretty.

I'm old enough to know better, yet I still do it anyway. It's like a compulsion or something, I can't seem to make myself go to bed. Too many things I want to do, not enough time in the day to do them all. My brain won't shut off until my body won't give it any other choice.
