Ah sleep!

I have been sleeping well these past several weeks and I feel that I should mention this because I usually don’t notice (or appreciate) these streaks of good sleep until they are over. For a while now, however, I have had no trouble whatsoever falling asleep. Once asleep, I haven’t had any of the unusual or intense dreams that normally occupy my sleeping hours. In fact, while I am sure that I do dream, I don’t remember anything about them when I wake up in the morning. I have, for the most part, been sleeping the whole night through, instead of waking up every few hours. And finally, when I wake up in the morning, I feel like I’ve gotten a good night’s sleep.

I’m not going to worry about how much longer it will last or what I can do to keep up the streak. I’m just going to go with it for now, seize the moment, so to speak. It’s refreshing to be sleeping so well for a change.
