I get home from work at around 11 and have to get up at 7 to get my daughter off to school. Instead of trying to get 8hrs straight I get about 5 at night and about 2 late morning early afternoon. It's been working ok for me.

I actually do, but its strange and rotates. My wife calls me a vampire. I've been doing this tour on and off for a long time though, almost 10 years.

Well last night sucked. I've had this really bad cold and my girlfriend and I have been fighting lately. So to be nice, she stayed up and on the couch while I went to bed at 9. Around 2 am I wake up with a sore throat and get up. Somehow, one thing leads to another, we get in a big screaming match and I find myself at work, with my dog, at 3:30 this morning.

Not really sure what I am going to do now. I have no desire to go home. None whatsoever. It's almost 5:30 AM, maybe I'll just take a road trip for a few days.

Been there, done that, got the hell out. Screaming arguments are never a good sign. Screaming arguments at 3am are a good sign it's time to leave and not look back. Sounds like you should find some beer event going on for Turkey Day and start figuring out how to have less crazy in your life.

Yeah, it's been building for a while. We live in her house. And she never fails to remind me that it is hers during these episodes, despite what is discussed between them. I have never felt as if I have any place in her house. All her crap, all her photos, all her furniture. I have a corner here, and a shelf there. Not a huge deal because we built a shed out back that I use for brewing and hanging out.

But then something like this comes up and I find myself homeless at 3 AM on a Wednesday. Completely unacceptable. Now I realize that I have rights and could refuse to leave, but what's the point? I'd rather just get the hell away from her.

Wow, sounds really bad, Boomer. Thoughts and prayers for you.

Just the other night I was tossing and turning and SWMBO had a morning shift she had to work.

Her: "James, GO TO BED!"
Me: "I can't sleep"
Her: "Just close your eyes and think about boobs again"

I was snoring within 10 minutes.
