I detest getting up super early but do it at least four days a week. Today I got out of bed at 4:30am as I had a 6am breakfast meeting. Last week I had two days where work duties were not finished until about 10pm. I slept in to 7am last Thursday and felt great when I got home at 11pm from work. I plan to sleep in on late days more often.

Pray, do tell how my venting about my job is so significantly-more irritating than anyone else's venting of their job?

I'm genuinely perplexed as to why you're singling me out confused.gif.

I believe, in this case, this really is your own problem.

My daughter is selling chocolate for a school fund raiser, and she and my son went walking down the block door to door selling the chocolates. My in-laws live around the corner, about a 2 minute walk from us, and they asked if they could walk over there to see if the grandparents wanted to buy some. We said sure no problem, just come right back for dinner.

15 minutes passes, they have not returned. We called my in-laws, not there. Called some other people on the block, not there. Walked up and down the route to the in-laws going door to door, nothing doing.

Now its 30 minutes and we are starting to freak out. We decide I will stay home with the sleeping baby, and wait to see if they show up at the house and the wife will drive around the area. Whoever sees the kids first is to immediately call the other. The neighbors and their kids also pitched in, walking around the surrounding blocks looking for our kids.

I grabbed a prayer book and just started praying. The wife called after about 10 or 15 minutes and said they had walked a few blocks over to my brothers house to sell chocolate to them and see their cousins. I think those 10 or 15 minutes of prayer waiting to hear from someone were the longest I can recall.

As soon as I hung up the phone I just broke down. I could barely stand up for a few moments. The whole ordeal was maybe 45 minutes, but the range of emotions and the thoughts that passed through my mind in that time period really took a toll.

Thank G-d everyone was fine, and we explained to the kids very lovingly, but sternly, what they had done wrong and how to make sure not to do that in the future. My daughter was pretty shook up about having worried us like that, and it took some time to calm her down and explain that we were not upset, just worried, and above all glad that she was safe.

It all made me realize how delicate the world is and it served as a reminder to appreciate what we I that much more, thank G-d.

so glad it's a false alarm, dude. you're a great dad.

I actually have wanted kids since the beginning of our marriage. I get bummed out/jealous when I see my friends with kids they had in their early 20s that are almost grown up and out of the house all by their early 40s or even late 30's. I'd like to think that I have a say in it, but its always going to be her call.

with you there. I've been wanting another kid and its still on the negotiating table... and its still gonna be the wife's call, unless i grow a womb.

But the "bye mom I'm gonna ride my bike and get into unsupervised hijinks with the neighborhood kids" "oh okay honey make sure you're home by dark" days of my childhood are over. No physical outlet for energy at school + no physical outlet for energy at home = pent up energy. It's understandable.

as much as I remember having so much freedom when I was a kid, I couldn't be comfortable with having my kids go unsupervised the whole day out without knowing where they are. I blame Jessica McClure for this.

Give us the notes and let us write the critical letter as a collective!

Yes, because that's worked out so well for Douglas...

Everything I learned about the sun I learned from They Might Be Giants.

Why would they lie to me?

I am awake now, even though I would not be if I had my druthers. (I don't mean I wish I had perished, I just mean I wish I were still sleeping.)

Being awake stinks. Sleep is so much more fun.

I don't agree with that claim. Speaking only for myself, I enjoy being awake, just not at 5:30.

Overscheduled myself hard core. It's 550 and I just got up. Shower and be on the road at 630. Work until 4, then have to drive an hour and do a tasting until 9. Drive an hr home, that makes it 10. Wake up at 230 so I can go to the weekly sales meeting 3 hours away at 630 AM. Work until 4. Another tasting tomorrow night from 5-9. Wake up Saturday morning and drive 3 hours again, work a craft beer festival for 6 hours, drive 3 hours home.
Sunday I will sleep for 22 hours.

I love being up super early, but I hate the actual getting up part. Once I'm up though, it's great--quiet, no one to bother you... Love it.

Things that piss me off: Working on powerpoint decks until 10:30PM, then not being able to sleep and getting up to do it again the next day. On top of it all, I'm sick, so that's making it double miserable.

I want to immolate whoever invented powerpoint.
