The Darkness

It's getting to be that time of year. The time of year when it gets dark so dang early. Granted - we have 3 more hours of light NOW than we will in 3 months but I don't like it. By 8:30 I'm pooped and want to crawl into bed to hibernate. If it was mid-June I'd have energy til 11!! I think I am solar powered. Hopefully once we get settled into the new place and can turn on the gas fireplace in the evenings and RELAX I won't feel like ending my days at 8.....but I might anyway!

I'm usually close to bed by 9:30 or so. You're not alone in missing the light. I was reading on the swing outside most of the day and had to go in to put on socks and a jacket and pretty soon, I couldn't see the pages anymore. Hrmph. I finished the book in my chair downstairs. I was not happy with that.

Carrie, I'm the same way but I feel it in the mornings. In the summer I can get up before 6a without any problem. In the winter I could sleep until 9a. Well, probably not anymore but you know what I mean.
