WHY YOU SHOULDN'T MAKE DECISIONS AT 3:00 AM

Exactly one week ago, I was up until 3:00 am.

I should turn my phone off, I thought, because I don't have to work in the morning and I can sleep until 10:00.

Then the 3:00 am gremlins took over my brain. I tell you, this is exactly what I thought:

I should also hide the phone because someone might come into my room and steal it in the middle of the night and I won't wake up to stop them because I'm so tired, so I really should hide it good.

You know where I'm going with this, don't you? I hid the turned-off phone at 3:00 am and haven't seen it since.

I'm giving you some advice. Do NOT make any big decisions at 3:00 am. Or if you do, write down the decision, and when, in the light of morning you read what you have written, you will be grateful you took my advice.

In fact, when you read it you might get a good laugh. Like: I hid the phone where?!

Well, at least you have a good reason to clean you room, right? I mean, that's when I do my best cleaning - when I'm looking for something I can't find....or maybe that's just me:)
Love you!

Lynn, you need to go to bed earlier!! Strange things happen in the middle of the night.

It's downstairs behind the ax. Or "downSTAYS" as Maddy would say.

when I used to work full time, I'd often wake up at 3 AM fully awake, and I'd decided to turn off the alarm for 6AM, because I reasoned I was wide awake now, and I wouldn't need it. Then I'd lay down and go back to sleep.
I was always really late on those days.
