Maybe I'm mean, but DW doesn't have to try to sleep during the day so she can go to work. Sleep is a necessity, not an option. I used to work the shift you do, it's a bugger not getting the sleep.

How difficult would it be to get the contact paper back off the windows if needed? We're renting our current place and when we move we'll likely be renting again, so I would want to do this if it didn't come off. Otherwise, it sounds like a great idea, although part of me is hoping my next job isn't on thirds. But I'm also a night owl so...

It peels off nicely, it's actually a vinyl sheet.

I wonder if the maker of Five Hour Energy drinks (caffeine and marketing) will come out with little 2.oz plastic shooter bottles to get you drowsy?

Combine some Trytophan, melatonin, anti-histimine and vitamins into a 2 oz. plastic shot bottle and you got the makings of another market hit.

Buy one to get you up, the other to get you down.

Great idea! Let's get the country hooked on uppers and downers. Nothing wrong with that, right?

Thanks. It's a little late to try it at this place, since we're hoping to be out in a month or so, but I'll definitely have to try it at the next. We currently use heavy curtains but as far as I'm concerned the darker the bedroom the better. If I could get rid of the glow from the alarm clock I would.

I'd probably end up missing work the next morning but ya know, it might just be worth it for one night.

There is such a thing as room darkening shades. Years ago I bought them at K-mart. They work great. Worth a shot.
