Day Dreaming and Night Dreaming
I failed to stay awake past 8:30 pm the other night. When I woke up it was still dark, and I thought, I hope it's at least 5 am so I got enough sleep that I can get up. It was 1 am. I'd gotten 4.5 hours of sleep, and I can operate pretty well on that amount. I didn't want to get up, but I began to imagine all of the things I could get done if I did. I'll finally get started on that book! I can take care of all the bills online and clean out the front closet! When I woke up again it was 6 am. So I've discovered a fantastic new method of falling back asleep when I wake up too early -- daydreaming about all the amazing things I'm going to accomplish with my extra time.
