    It's like calving season (I'm sure you know the process). Sleep in the living room recliner, wake up every hour or so (and let's say this 2 AM), look at the blizzard raging outside, curse while putting your coveralls on, go outside and find 5 cows calving, watch 3 get their calves out no problem, notice the other two are going to need help, get all 5 cows and the 3 calves inside the shed, get the two others locked in a head gate, get the come along, pull the two calves out, make sure they suck, go back inside, look at clock that now says 4 AM, sleep knowing you get to do the same thing in another hour. Funny thing is, I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    There is actually such thing as too much sleep. I think for an adult anything after 8 hours actually starts to negatively effect you and make you more tired throughout the day.

    I have said this too but she asked her doctor about over-sleeping while she was at her check-up and the doc said it was perfectly fine.

    I know how it is from the beef side, but I've never experienced it since we calve year round for dairy. Plus they are already in a close-up barn so no moving/extra work required unless there's trouble. So a few nights of hanging around late, but not the days on end thing like that. Or weeks for a human baby. And I do think I could survive it - I wonder how the hell it works once you go back to work. How do you not just conk out?

    It sure is tough during the school year since I do it during spring break (SDSU has it at the beginning of march) and on weekends. My grandpa will be 73 and still gets up before me, even when I'm there to do it. I guess it's just hard wired into his system completely. When I get back to SDSU on Sunday evening, I just sleep until the morning.

    00 nailed that one on the head. Sounds like someone feeding you full of crap so she can sleep in more!

    Lone Survivor is such a roller coaster of emotions. First you are laughing, then you are serious, then you feel alll sad and depressed inside, then finally, you feel like you could run through anything for this country.

    Such an incredible story.

    Though most articles say 7-9 hours is optimal, so she's technically still in line, but teetering on the edge.

    Great movie, save to say I have never been to a party that insane.
