I don’t mean that they’re too short as in “there aren’t enough hours in the day”, but rather that there just isn’t enough daylight this time of year. Normally I’d be thinking about booking a holiday someplace sunny and then having that to look forward to, but I’m still not sure if the time is right to attempt international travel.
It’s that time of year where you hear yourself saying “I could really use a nap” a lot. I think I first said it at 7:30 this morning. I’ve played around with timed lighting to help me get up in the morning, and it does help, but it’s still not quite enough. It’s dark when I’m driving the kids to the dock in the morning, and it’s dark when I pick them up at night.
The crazy part is that we’re still a month and a half away from winter solstice. The days are still getting shorter right up until December 21st. Oh, but we have daylight savings to help! Ugh, that should completely throw off everyone for at least a couple of weeks.
