early game day morning/can't sleep thread

Submitted by UM Fan from Sydney on September 24th, 2016 at 6:33 AM

I went to bed around 10:30 simply so I could get more sleep, but of course it did not work. I started awaking around 3AM, dozed off a few times here and there, and then about twenty minutes ago, I just said "screw it" and got out of bed. It's a beautiful morning here in Manhattan.  Michigan football starts in nine hours and Above & Beyond Group Therapy 200 starts in eight-and-a-half hours. I have double excitement, which is the likely reason I cannot sleep.

Anyone else having trouble sleeping? Dare I say, "what are you drinking?"

The baby - DO IT!!!  When you put him/her to bed for the night, kiss and say goodnight, then walk out and close the door.  Kid will scream bloody murder for a while, but will eventually learn to go to bed/sleep on his/her (is this a boy or a girl?) own, without you having to stay and lay in bed with him.

DO IT!!!  LET THE KID SCREAM!  Becuase if you don't, if mommy can't take it, you will be laying with that kid until he falls asleep for years.  YEARS, I tell you!  He will not remember that you just left the room.  He will not remember the screaming.  He will not remember the stories you read him each night.  LEAVE THE ROOM!!!!!!!

By now, you know how I know this...  And congratulations!!

Running in the Chadtough 5k today. It's my first organized race ever and I've got some butterflies going on. I have no idea what a respectable time is so I'm just hoping to not embarrass myself.
