I love these short weeks, they really are over in a flash and this one was filled with lots of family time (hurray!) and very little sleep for me (sad face). I haven't been sleeping well, I know I've mentioned before that I struggle with some kind of mild insomnia and it's been in high gear the last few weeks. I was falling asleep at 1AM and then it started slipping later and later and now I routinely am still up until 3-4AM... I know, not good. When I first wake up I'm brutally tired, but once I get out of bed I actually do feel okay on the two to four hours of sleep I'm getting. Maybe I just don't really need sleep...the circles under my eyes however do not agree with this theory.
I think the shift in seasons can be a time when I'm extra restless, lots to do and I feel like I have to race to finish it all before the weather changes. Big Smith and I were both moping about how little camping we did this summer, and we decided that instead of just complaining about it we'd fix the problem by taking a last hurrah trip this week-end. We're going up to NH for some hiking and campfires and I'm hoping the fresh air and stars over my head will be the perfect recipe for some good shut-eye. I'm pretty excited to finish off the summer this way, and off to assemble the camping gear- happy week-end!
