It is coming - more and more

The darkness is coming!
The darkness is coming!

Quick, quick, get out something bright!
Something cheery!
Anything to make this more bearable!

Tomorrow I am putting up the Christmas tree. I need something to look forward to.

As you can see, the sun is not coming up until after 10 now, and is going down at 4. 6 hours daylight is enough to make anyone want to go back to bed.

It is also enough to make everyone sleep in. We have all been late all week. They boys have not been waking up until after 9, so we are setting alarms, and still lucky to get up for 8.

On the weekend they slept until almost 11. It has been a long time since I was last woken up by the boys and felt well rested.

There is one other problem, besides being late every morning. Just like when it is light all the time, the kids do not know when to stay in bed. A few times Stefán has woken up in the middle of the night, played toys for a while then fell asleep on the couch. I guess his reasoning is that if he plays all day in the dark, why not play all night in the dark?

    I've been turning on the brightest lights in the house until the sun is well and truly up. I think my plants appreciate it as much as me!
