Early Nights

January 28th, 2011

Last night when I went to bed around 9, I commented to myself that I was turning into my mom. Not that there would be anything wrong with being like my mom- because she’s amazing, but I would often tease her when we were home because she was usually in bed every night before 9 if at all possible. Granted, she was up most every morning at 5, but I still couldn’t help but tease her about it.

The past two nights I’ve gone to bed at unheard of hours for me. Marcel had to work and I planned to watch a couple of shows that I’d been wanting to see, but the only thing I watched was the back of my eyelids- I was out light a light. I woke up several times during the night but went back to sleep until a little after 6 this morning.

Marcel was home from work by this time and had made his way to bed after going out with JJ. I laid in bed for a while browsing through my email on my phone, and then ultimately finishing another book I’d been reading on my Kindle. (That makes two books complete now in a week.)

I’d like to say that I’d like to continue to keep these early nights, but I really don’t. I wouldn’t mind falling asleep around 11 though, and then getting up around 7, but we’ll see how things play out. In the meantime- I woke up with really cold temps but plenty of sunshine, so when I walked with JJ this morning, I made it an extra long walk and in spite of the chilling temps, I enjoyed it. I’m hoping that the walks will help build my energy and help me get completely over this jet lag.

I’m at least feeling like doing more- which is far more than I was able to say a few days ago. As for now- looks like it will continue to be early nights for me, after all- I figure my body needs it.

    I stayed up late (midnight) last night because I went to the movies with Marcel, Hein and Desere. This morning- I slept until 10. I’m grateful for the rest, and now if I can just find some energy- I’ll be happy :)
