i’m a night owl

I’m sitting at my computer at almost 1 am.

Totally not what my doctor thinks I should be doing.

I’m a night person. I always have been. I come alive as the sun sets I would have made a great vampire ifI glittered.

Here I am, late at night. Everyone’s sleeping, dreaming, snoring. Even the dog and cat.

I am alone in this moment.

It’s peaceful.

Not the blaring silence of the empty house. I can hear them breathing. I know they’re lost in the fantasies behind their eyelids. I enjoy this time.

No fighting.

No chore to be done.

No parenting needed.

Every child happy in their bed.

My world lit from the glow of the monitor.

Hoot Hoot.

    I’m a night owl too and that time is golden. I love it. “…lost in the fantasies behind their eyelids…” That’s great. xx
