    I Never Get Enough

    I love to sleep, but I never seem to get enough. I am a night owl, but I have to get up early for work. It is physically impossible for me to fall asleep before 11:30, unless I take Tylenol PM, and I have to get up at 5:30 for work, however I need 9 hrs of sleep to feel decent...

    I Sleep!

    At least four hours within every twenty four hour period, if I can... Though, I'd rather get eight to nine hours, honestly... Sometimes that's just not possible.

    Yup

    I sleep pretty well most nights but occasionally, I find it very difficult to sleep/to get to sleep. I normally sleep about 7 hours a night but if it's a weekend, I tend to sleep longer in the mornings.

    Less Than 8 Hours

    I can be an early riser or late riser depending on what time i slept. I sleep heavily. Nothing wakes me up. You have to hit me with something or shout in my ear. When I sleep, I SLEEP! Don't disturb me!!!

    I Don't Wanna Nap!!!!

    I sleep quite well as a matter of course. Some say that brats just do and can anytime, any place but that's just bollocks. Take today; Adam had just finished varnishing the floor and he decided we needed a nap. Why "we"? I wasn't tired but he insisted I lay down with...
