Sleep of the Just

My sleep cycle is off. 

I know many are already appalled at my 'normal' cycle, but I get a solid 5.5 - 6.0 hours per night. Well, semi-solid. Since my nasal surgery a few years back, most of my sleep is in a row. 

Maybe it's age, but I am writing this at 20:30 and already dozed off on the sofa for a few, and I know I'll be in bed by 21:30. 

Yesterday, I got up at my normal time, 03:30 or so, but decided to try and shut my eyes for another 30 minutes.  It turned into 30 + an additional 48.  I woke at the time I'm usually pulling into the gym parking lot. But now I hadn't been out of bed, peed, dressed or had cereal. 

It kind of threw off my day. Kind of not. But again, it 20:33 (now) and all I want is to go to bed. 

There was a line from Bob Newhart on the Big Bang Theory, where he answers the door in robe saying it was 19:30, and he had to get to bed so he could get up soon and wander around the house all night. 

I'm TOTALLY getting where he's coming from.

I nod off at 9:00 PM and wake up around 6:00 AM, I wonder if that will change after I retire.
