the nice thing about not sleeping

Last night, I went to bed about 1am, after a great day of wonderful socializing and slightly ill-advised staying up late. But this is what the dark of winter is for, right? Filling one's home and time with warm gatherings of dear friends?

So, okay, I'd be a little underslept, but it's a short week, so that's okay ... except for how I woke up at 3:30 and couldn't get back to sleep. Uuuuuugh.

So I've been bleary and drugged on lack of sleep all day. But the great thing about this is that I can't remember the last time I had such bad insomnia. It's been weeks, possibly months! I used to have days like this a couple of times a month, minimum, sometimes a couple of times a week.

What changed? I got better at sleep hygiene and quit the job that was making me miserable. This is much better.
