The Nightshifter's day off (night off actually)

At 12:30am the house feels like a cemetery. My wife was the first one to quit, fell asleep while watching cartoons with the baby. My son soon follow, fell while playing video games. My little princess came to the office and demanded a dance. I danced with my baby, she fell asleep on my arms. Now I'm alone.

I went to the garage and did the laundry. Everything is clean and dry... I still need to put the clothes in hangers tho, but I got bored of that... will do tomorrow maybe. I cleaned one of the bathrooms and did the dishes. Then I made some pasta, ate some and stored some for tomorrow.

I between tasks, I'm doing 20 minute laps on the trainer to try fix the guilt of not riding today, sacred Sunday riding day. I will keep doing laps till I get sleepy. It feels really cool, at night, with no lights and some music blasting through my headphones. Having the red taillight blinky on the steem flashing at my face helps the mood. I shall sweet lots.

I don't have any good movie that I haven't seen already a few times. I'm afraid I will get insanely bored very soon. And is only 12:30am... lunch time by night shifter standards.

And you? what's keeping you up at this time?

2:30am - My guests arrived from the parks. We talk for a while. It was nice to talk with somebody who is not nuts. I've done some more cleaning around the house. My options now are:

1) More laps on the bike trainer.
2) Buffy the vampire slayer.
3) Work on my blog.
4) Meditate about my next saddle... Selle vs Specialized.

... this night is sucking badly...

I'm considering taking a part time job at a bar or something.

True ... being bored at home is safer and avoids the whole DUI drama.

I was thinking more of the liquored-up hotties.

Buffy is always a good call.
