    Meh, I dunno; I've met lovely people at our local community college twice my age, who were either finally going to college for the first time in their lives, or finishing up after having been in the military, or raised a family, or whatever. :)

    But if it's a matter of getting an advanced degree, yeah, that can be more problematic, but you'd be amazed at what's available at night, even at major universities, and if memory serves, at least one "real" institution back east (Harvard? MIT? Yale? can't recall) has put everything online. You can basically "audit" just about anything from there from the comfort of your own home. :)

    Not sure how it would translate into credit hours, but I'm sure that's discussed somewhere. ;->

    who, yeah, has thought customers are a barely necessary evil more than once ("But surely, not us! :D") :-/

    I get the scowl when mine wants to go to bed, but we have been married since 2004 and I was already a well established insomniac by then, not to mention we lived on different sides of the Atlantic Ocean for a bit more than the first 2 years we were married. It was nice when the company I came to the US with still had the office here, but most of the others from Ireland had gone back, I got to work a lot of overtime so that I was at work here for their 8 hour day and for the US 8 hour day as well. If I had to go into my office, I went in at midnight and I would get off of work at 5 pm. I could do administrative stuff and reports and such from home so I was basically on-call 24/7. It was sad indeed, all of my friends returned to our home and I stayed here because of my girls "please, please do not make us go back now, we have friends and school" etc and I caved in.

    Ouch. Sounds like me and my mom, too; kids can be selfish and/or clueless. :(

    At least my hubby doesn't insist on me coming to bed when he does (he needs to get up at 5:30 am, for his work), but he would like it if I spent at least some time in there, sleeping, before he has to head out. ;->

    Sometimes when I do, his snoring chases me out to the couch, poor sod... "Was I at it again?" "I'd just gotten up to hit the bathroom [once I'm asleep, it'll take the wall falling on my head to wake me up], but by the time I came back, yeah. Masonry saws have got nothing on you, love." ;->

    He knows better than to insist I go to bed when he does. I just get that Spousal Unit Signature Scowl, you know the one, its that one they shoot at us thinking that we do not see it and then when we say something about it, its innocence, "What? I was not scowling or making a face at you", its just like having children again.

    Ah the good old days when love was young, we used to go to bed at the same time LOL but yea now, forget it, some nights he is actually going to bed as I'm getting up and we pass each other in the hall LOL

    Yeah...one of the reasons I probably didn't get into construction was that out here, I'd be not only woken up but gone out the door by the time early bird hubby would have woken up at 5:30. Granted, shifts end at 2:30 pm, but by the time he got home from work at night, I'd probably be in bed already and we'd never see each other. :(

    Yes, it is horrible being bedtime shamed by your cats, dogs, ferrets, or any other pet. I have heard the spousal unit tell a random pet to go and tell me its time for bed.

Hubby doesnt care gets up so early for work, as long as cats stay quiet >.> And seems it all has gone wayyy off topic of the homes, but am exicted and cant wait to play in the new house with expac!
