Sleep Patterns


McMinnville, Oregon, September 12, 2013. 3:30 a.m.

I’ve always been an early bird, but this is ridiculous! As we travelled west and started changing time zones, my body STILL woke at 6am Eastern Time.  I slept once to 7:30 local time and believed I had transitioned but no, that was only a fluke.earlybird_poster

I researched towns a lot and we made several visits and spent some time with a realtor who understood it was not to purchase now but to get to know the area….with the promise to work with her later when the time came to purchase.
