SC challenge #4 - Hit the hay earlier

Sunday, November 17, 2013

I so wanted to do this at 4pm! Just go straight to bed right now! I had a bad night with cramps the night before.
Of course I didn't go at 4 and by 6:30 I was so tired I didn't know what I wanted to do. By 7 I was gathering a second wind and by 7:30 DH and I were snow shoeing by the full moon on the mountain. How does that happen?!
I did get concerned that I might forfeit my challenge. Although for a very worthy event. The air was so fresh and crisp. The light cast by the moon is so blue on the white snow. The dogs jumped and ran and rolled and barked and smiled. It was so worth it!
Since this was our first trip (first trips of the season are always hard) and there hasn't been a large snow fall on the mountains, we found the walking (there wasn't even enough snow to warrant wearing snowshoes) a little rutty and therefore uncomfortable so after 30 minutes we loaded up and came home.
I ran in the house, drank some water, kenneled the dogs and jumped under the covers giggling "I did it, I did it!" It was 9:20 and I met the challenge.
I think I was awake for about 35 seconds! all that fresh air! I woke up once to pee and at 5:30 BOING - A-WAKE! I got up, had a hot tub and AHHH the start of relaxing day!

    Hiking by the light of the fave kind! Snowshoeing on snow, not so much..but sounds fun! Sorry you had cramps and lost sleep. Hope you are feeling better and able to get to bed earlier. Although not sure I understand the early times. 4 pm Bed? emoticon Of course, I am a night owl-always have been since I got married. If I am in bed by 2 am. that is a good night! emoticon

Your evening walk on snowshoes sounds wonderful even tho there wasn't a lot of snow.
