I agree with you there, catherine.

Yesterday for some reason I awakened at 4:30 a.m. and couldn't seem to get back to sleep. So I got up, read the paper, said goodbye to the hubs who was going out to play golf. Then I lay down, and fell asleep for TWO hours! I felt a little ashamed of myself, but I guess I needed that.
