Early to bed, early to rise

For the first time since putting my new schedule into effect, I got to bed on time last night. I was going to stay up to watch the launch of Discovery, but it was postponed. So I got into bed at 9:30 PM and I was out like a light. I woke up at about 1 AM, to the sound of howling wind, but quickly got back to sleep and felt pretty good when I got up at 5:30 this morning, having had a full 8 hours of sleep.

It’s a cold day in the Metro DC area. Temperature were in the low 20s this morning and it doesn’t feel like it’s warmed up too much since then. My boss is in the office today (he works in the Santa Monica office, but he is out here visiting). He took me to lunch and I’ve had a few meetings with him this morning. I just got out of one meeting that nearly put me to sleep.

Now it’s time to get back to work.
