Lately (and by lately I mean over the past month or so) my sleeping habits have changed. Completely. Before, I would stay up until the wee hours of the morning, then manage to somehow drag myself out of bed by late morning to early afternoon. It was SO HARD to even think about getting up, let alone making myself do so.
Over this past month, I've been waking up (without an alarm clock) at around 7:30 AM. I think maybe the amount of light has something to do with it? I mean, 7:30 AM looks a lot like 11 AM to my brain, I think. So, I get up at 7:30 because I am honestly invigorated. I want to do things and go places. This morning I woke up early, showered, dressed, and prepared my talk. . .four hours before church starts!
I am in no way upset about this new change, except that I pay the price when the evening rolls around. 9 o'clock PM and I'm getting quite sleepy. 10 PM and I need to go to bed or I'm going to get cranky. I've never, ever been accused of being a morning person; I've always been a night owl. But this new change in my life has brought some wonderful things with it. :)

I can't stay up past 10 either, and on the weekends am awake by 7... but I stay in bed until I please, haha. It's good you're feeling better in the morning. :)
