I have a short and easy question...when was the last time you pulled an all-nighter. I'm up way beyond my bedtime helping grandson with final senior projects the he should have finished by now. But grandma is staying up with him to encourage and keep him awake. Only problem is I'm fading

Do you ever get this silly? or in my case, stupid?
Chutzie...good night!

The only all nighters I pull are the ones that p    visit for. As long as Mr. P     leaves early and my meds don't kick in then I hang in there for the team.

Wow...thank God not in a long time. I'm up so much at night, but I always get in a couple of hours.

My last all nighter was two years ago.  I was on vacation with my family and 8 hours from home.  We got word that my dog ( who I love about as much as I love air ) got into some pesticide.  He was in serious condition at the vet hospital.  We drove all night to get home.  I got the pet hospital at 8 am.  He survived but my credit card did not!!! lol

I'm afraid to say I've had a few all nighters of late, but that's because my nights and days have become reversed due to pain and a host of other things. But I just did a colonoscopy prep on Sunday for a Monday procedure. Need I say more???

We've gotta find a way to have a fun all nighter. A good pajama party and Mr./Ms. Pain is NOT invited!

I hate all nighters! Even thou they say i have insomnia, i dont stay up all night (down aroun 12 -130). I just wake up.. *why? Am I awake?* then fall back asleep. Now only happens .. under a dozen times per night now , thank goodness. Before I went to Spine Dr I would wake up to the oddest things... Like lotion in my mouth! Yuck! and half eaten peices of bread next to the bed... Weird. Glad thats over with!

I don't remember the last all nighter, but reading the "goofy" remark reminded me of when my husband used to wait until the last minute to write his term papers in college and he would dictate to me and I would type on the typewriter. Some of the misspellings were so goofy and we would just laugh and laugh together. Good times.

Then also way back when, I would work a double at the hospital and work from 3pm to 7am the next day. I would come home, get my second wind and then paint the hallway. Boy when I was young, I thought I could do anything. Good memories. Thanks for the thread, Chutzie.

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.

Unfortunately, mr. p has given me countless allnighters. I hate them! Back when I was young and very stupid, I would do at least two or three a week! All night poker games, all night at a 24hr bar, all night w/ a lady friend and then straight to work in the morning on the weekdays, how the h*** did I ever do that??? Weekends were a given back in those days! I can even remember (barely) some 3 day binges! Thank God I finally grew up in my 40's! The worst all nighter was the night before I started work at my pressent job> soon to be last job!{two more days!!} I found my older son lying on the floor of his room unconscius, not breathing, foaming at the mouth and turning blue. A drug overdose, the second time. I gave him mouth to mouth for what seemed an eternity before the Parametics came. We were at the hospital all night and I then drove to my first day of work for my wacoboss. What a nightmare! I thank God everyday that I stuck my head in his door that day and I still don't know why I did as I usually didn't. My Guardian Angel must have told me to, thats the only explanation I can think of!
I'm so sorry to spoil the party with a story like that but it isn not only the worst night of my life, it's unfortunately the most memorable one!
