NaNoPoblano Day 10: It’s dark outside

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt AND in non-avoidance of NaNoPoblano 2015

Nothing too spicy about that, but yes indeed, it’s dark outside.

Now, to be honest, it is only 6:00 am and it IS November.  BUT it was also dark outside when I was done work yesterday.  Even if I hadn’t worked later than usual, it still would have been darkening.  But, because I didn’t leave work until almost 5:00 pm (I usually get to work around 8:00 am), it was dark.  Meaning it felt like it was time for bed by the time I got home.  Every year it’s the same.  How do I find my motivation for doing anything after work when it feels like I should be sleeping?

I understand bears a lot better now.

I should also mention that it doesn’t help that the kitties are always quite ready to snuggle up and sleep on my lap at this time of year (well, they are ready to sleep any time of the year, but they are MUCH more snuggly when the temperature goes down).  It’s hard to take pictures of kitties after they settle on the lap, but here is Jasper trying to make up his mind about a little “settle on em’s lap and convince her that she’s right and it’s time for hibernating rather than cleaning the house” time.
