Lately, I feel like I can sleep 15 hours a day ... if I take a little nap!
But I embrace this temporary feeling. I love that it's dark earlier and there is a nip in the air at night. And I have always enjoyed sleeping. Lately, though, I have had insomnia! Can't seem to fall asleep until after 3:00 am. I'm so glad I do not have to go to work nor do I have ANYTHING on my calendar (except for physical therapy). Don't know how people do that if they don't get their sleep. And I have several friends who are still employed at our age.
I have been walking 3,000 steps a day (thank you FitBit) hoping that exercise will help me get to sleep. After therapy tomorrow, I will see if it's okay to walk more. He wanted to build up the muscles around the knee before much walking. Hibernation is not so good for my new knee. The whole area is now a big bruise and I'm slathering coconut oil and Vitamin E oil on it to help things heal.
The best thing about hibernation? I get to fly to Maui in five weeks and we don't have time changes or nippy weather (usually) and it gets dark at almost the same time every day of the year.
