rise and shine
The long day's drive up to Maine last week really put Julia Ellen's internal clock out of kilter. She awoke on Tuesday morning, the day Tim and I needed to get some rest, at 4:30am. The next day I swung by Target and bought a set of blackout curtains, but realized after Tim put them up that I needed another pair to completely cover the windows. Despite going to bed a little later than normal and the pitch black conditions, she was still waking up with the birds between 5-6am. Finally, after 7 days of not being able to sleep in, this morning she slept until the civilized hour of 7:15am. Of course, now my internal clock is reprogrammed to wake at 6am so I took the opportunity to go running for the first time in almost a year.
