Woke up at 4:00 and couldn't go back to sleep. I've fallen into a pattern where I wake up every night in the middle of the night, thirsty and needing to go to the loo and thinking of death. Not good, not healthy, I don't think. This morning it wasn't death, just the parking situation, for which I have not found a solution yet. Couldn't go back to sleep at all, so I'll have to sail through this very long day (finish teaching tonight at about 9:00 or so) on four hours' sleep and probably a lot of coffee.
It is a sunny day again, though. It was freezing (literally) this morning but on a day like this one can hope that spring is finally coming. All the previous could just be a mix of stress and the long, grey, wet winter -and this will not last forever.
