    The OBSC Q & A's helped me tremendously on the challenge. Should join the challenge again as my sleep has gotten way off No loner have a set wake up and bedtime schedule. I find myself going to bed @ 9 pm and waking at midnight. I stay up and spark all night just to go back to bed in the early morning (@ 4 or 5 am) and sleeping in 'til 9 or 9:30 am. I'm usually sleeping my 7 hours, but broken up like this. Problem is I like these hours. I like being up in the wee hours of the morning. So until that changes, nothing is going to change. With these hours, don't know if I'm an extra early bird or a night owl !!
