Sleeping Sam

For the past few weeks, I’ve been trying something a little different. I have been going to bed early. Now, there are two results of this.

First is that I’ve been getting a decent night’s sleep almost every night. Like more than eight hours decent. As a result I have been feeling more rested. I have been feeling more able to get things done during the day. I have been a bit more energetic. I’ve been able to think better, concentrate better, etc.

On the flip side though, I haven’t come remotely close to getting the things done at home that I usually try to get done every day. I’m just falling further and further behind on those things. There just isn’t enough time in the day to both do everything I want to do every day and also sleep 8 or 9 hours a night. Which is a shame.

They really just need to make the days longer.

I’m not sure how long I will stick with this. I really like how I feel. The rest really helps me. But I really don’t like not being able to get done the things I want to get done.

Indiana Gap Closed

The average for Indiana now has Hillary’s lead down to 2.5%. Just yesterday it was over 5%. And immediately after the Wright flap blew up it was almost 10%. Obama *may* just pull this off… Tomorrow should be interesting.

Meanwhile Obama’s lead in North Carolina is at 9.4%.
