Anticipation

Christmas Eve was always a tough night for me. Falling asleep early would have been the ideal solution, but I was never able to accomplish this because I was always too excited. I’d lie awake in my bed, staring at the ceiling. Eventually I’d fall asleep, but then waking up in the middle of the night was torture because then I’d have to try to fall asleep a second time. Somehow I’d always make it through this longest night of the year and my parents would wake up to find me playing with a new Lego set or Transformer.

I now wake up at a sane hour on Christmas mornings, but I’m looking forward to tomorrow morning with the same sort of anticipation. Haven’t seen Jen since July 18 and she’ll be back bright and early on the red-eye in about 6 hours. Since I’ve got work tomorrow too, I’d better get to sleep – or at least try to. It has been a long summer without her, and I am looking forward to having her back.
