The eternal debate. After the toddler is good and asleep, do I stay up late and work on contracts? Or get up extra early in the morning?

Back when I worked at the art store (before the kid) I would get up around 5a.m. and make art or blog. Then, I'd be thinking about what I had worked on all day and I'd feel good about it. But something happened after being a stay at home dad for almost a year. I've become a night person. An ineffective, exhausted, but can't-get-to-sleep night person.
So I needed something stronger than coffee to help. Something to help me regain that edge.
That's right: two coffees.
