Middle insomnia? Age? Worried about my grandson starting school next week?
Regardless of what was happening in my head this AM - or rather the middle of the night - I was able to calmly get up out of bed for a while and do some work. After that I went hiking with a friend, applied for a fun tutoring job, and then ordered some books on dissertation format from the library.
There's something to say about simply doing the next right thing. I wonder now what my youth would have been like if I'd simply have gotten up in the night and done something that needed to be done. I spent so much time worrying about sleep back then.
Now? A nap.
