There's nothing like being up to watch the sun rise.
Particularly when you haven't actually fallen asleep yet.
I can't be the only one who's been having trouble sleeping lately.
Is it the time change? Apparently there’s a part of the brain that uses light to regulate our circadian rhythms, so the short days and early darkness would explain it.
Some animals need to wake from hibernation to get sleep, and no one seems to know why. Maybe I haven't just been feeling lazy these past few weeks. Maybe I've been hibernating.
Or maybe there are just so many great things to do at this time of the year, that I don't want to miss anything. Whatever the reason, now that it's mid-November, I'm switching from counting sheep to counting sugarplums.
Like they say... a change is as good as a rest.
