If I go to bed early, I lie awake, bored, frustrated, driving myself crazy and unable to sleep, through the small hours of the morning. I spend the day exhausted, somewhat spaced out, and looking forward to crashing out as soon as possible. But it never happens.
Then the same thing happens the following night, until after a week or so, eventually I'm so exhausted that I do crash out the minute the kids are quiet and watching TV, and sleep until they're pestering me to cook dinner. Then, naturally, I totally perk up at 11pm again and the cycle begins again.
I've sometimes thought that perhaps there's a link between night-owl sleeping patterns and N-ness... I sometimes wonder if the fact that the world's pretty unsympathetic to night owls, causing me to spend most of my waking daylight hours feeling tired, a little confused and not quite with it, so that my senses aren't really functioning properly, is what's forced me since childhood to rely more on intuition...??
