Default One of those nights! Anyone else up?

I am having one of those nights where I cannot sleep at all so I decided to make a pot of coffee and make a night of working. My work right now is consisting of titling for DS and writing articles, blog posts, posts in Postloop portal and answering questions for Ask.com. Is anyone else up or am I all alone tonight while everyone is all cozy in their beds? I know I will be sleeping most of the day tomorrow but I figured since I can't sleep tonight I might as well make it worth my while and get some work done.

I'm not alone! The one night I planned to sleep in because I have nothing pending, I'm wide awake. I stayed in bed for 30 minutes hoping I'd get sleepy again, but by 4 a.m., I figured it was a lost cause.

For me, I think it's a mix of excitement with my starting a new job as content editor for Best of the Web and the fact that we're heading to Church Street later to do some shopping. Things have started out on a high note when BOTW paid me last night and doubled what I'd put on my invoice as a "bonus." Church Street is a pedestrian mall in the heart of Burlington and I rarely venture into the downtown area because parking stinks, but my son needs shoes and they do have one of the best stores there.

Cool then I am not alone, lol. I find it is more quite working at night since my dogs and husband are all sleeping. I might consider doing this every night but I really don't like sleeping in the day time, lol.

I called it a lost cause at 1 am when I just laid there and could not fall asleep. I wanted to go to bed at midnight and get up early to get a head start on work but since I can't sleep, I am working now. The only noise is my husband snoring on the couch and I am used to that, lol. So I am taking advantage of my quite time to work and get caught up on questions for Ask.com and get some writing and titling in.

My cats are up with me, but then that's typical for them. They'll eventually hog the back of the recliner and keep my neck warm.

Last night I received a list of the 19,000 properties that need descriptions, so I have to go through the spreadsheet and start handing out assignments. I just have to figure out what info is necessary for the writers and what is extraneous. Then I guess my job will also entail keeping track of what the writers are owed, so I need to come up with a spreadsheet for that. Once I have all that set up, I'll go do some work for Populis and the $37 WA article that I managed to grab yesterday.

I accidently deleted my trial editing assignment last night, so I stayed up and worked on it until 9:45. Then I finally decided I might as well go to sleep early. So for once I was not one of the ones writing until midnight lol.

I was up working until 6 am and finally went to sleep. I slept until 10 am and stayed up working again until 2pm. I then slept until almost 7and I am still so tired but I am making myself stay awake until at least 10 or 11pm. I did get a lot of work done at least.
