I usually hit the hay at about 11pm or a little after that most nights, but I think that with the current workload, I'm going to have to start pushing on until 12pm just to ensure it is all getting done in a timely manner. I'm not complaining, mind; this is what I signed up for and what I knew would happen. Whenever my resolve gets a little wobbly though, I always think of one of my favourite authors, James Herriot. He managed to work as a vet on the unforgiving Yorkshire Dales back when living was a lot tougher than it is now. On top of that, he managed to find time to raise a family and write a bunch of internationally best selling books. The way I see it, if he can do all of that, I can handle my comparatively insignificant workload.
So, in the words of Michael Bluth, "put your head down and power on through."

Me Fact #30
Some days I am really grumbly. Most days I will be a little grumbly at some point. I am generally a happy fellow though, but outside influences get to me more than I would like. My parents brought me up to have manners and be considerate of others. So I don't cut in front of somebody and then walk/drive slowly. I don't go into a shop and put things back in different places from where I got them. I don't do anything noisy out of respect for neighbours and those around me. I speak politely. If I walk into a shop, I say hello to somebody before I ask them a question.
I wish Ireland had my parents to teach them manners...
