Ugh! My husband has to stay awake all night tonight in order to get a sleep-deprived EEG done tomorrow morning. Which means I have to stay up with him to make sure he doesn't go to sleep. Besides watching some TV and doing some housecleaning, what are some things we could do to get out of the house? Where are some places that are open all night around here?

Borrow someone's colicky baby. Better yet, find someone with twins - trust me on this, someone's always awake!

Find an all night drugstore and do all your health and beauty aide shopping.

Go for a walk under the almost full moon.

At this time of year find an overnight showing of Rocky Horror Picture Show.

I would say go catch a late movie, hit Waffle House, go walk around Walmart, join a 24 hr gym.

Definitely go to Walmart and kill some time looking through the various sections. Maybe go to a fast food place for a late night snack, like McD's, Wendy's, or Taco Bell? I like the movie idea as well. So how about latest movie showing you can find, fast food snack, then walk it off at Walmart?

Seems like VickiR once gave the best advice for how to occupy a man for a day:

A man's perfect day: breakfast, sex, lunch, beer, sex, dinner, beer, sex.
Since you only need to keep him occupied for the night, you could drop the breakfast and lunch part.

We wound up doing some housework, going to WalMart on Glenwood, trying to go to The Diner (only to discover they're no longer 24 hours), and ultimately going to IHOP on Hillsborough St. Then we went home & did some Christmas shopping online. It was fun, in a grueling I-never-want-to-do-that-again way.

Unfortunately the reason for the EEG is because my husband has a brain tumor & seizures, so caffeine is banned. And he has some motor skill issues now too, so he can't play video games anymore. Quite a challenge trying to come up with something to do under those circumstances!
