In my early twenties (before marriage)and it was 2 a.m., I was usually coming home from a date or hanging out with friends. The time seemed to be early evening for me then.
In my late twenties (post marriage) and it was 2 a.m., I was sleeping in my new husband's arms dreaming peacefully. I was too tired juggling a new marriage, new household responsibilities, and graduate school to be awake.
In my thirties and it was 2 a.m., I was trying to get to sleep while my mind was racing and solving the latest "Work" related problem. Up at five and in bed by twelve... the life of a career focused/driven professional.
In my forties and it is 2 a.m., I am either rocking a teething baby to sleep or looking up and realizing that I have become obsessed with twitter, face book, and blogging. This is the life of a blogging mom of two boys under 2 1/2 years old.
When I am in my fifties and it is 2 a.m., both of my son's will be teenagers... so I will be up with worry and prayer over them.
When I am in my sixties and it is 2 a.m., my son's will be in college... so I will be up with worry and prayer over them. And praying on how we are to finance both college and retirement at the same time.
When I am in my seventies and it is 2 a.m., I will have insomnia as I will have never been used to sleeping at that hour... so I guess I had better keep my twitter, face book, and blogging obsession.
Who knows about in my eighties as I never seem to sleep past 2 a.m. or get to sleep until after it.
By the way in just 2 days, the new layout will roll out. Excitement is building in my house... I hope you like it as much as I do.
