I'm slowly starting to develop the ability again to wake up right before my alarm is going to go off (the time change last spring threw me off; hopefully, the same thing doesn't happen this fall). The freaky thing is that it seems to be working whether I have to be up at 5, or 6, or later. This morning, the alarm was set for 7:00, and I woke up about 6:55, blinked at the clock for a minute, and then said "Oh, right, work" and reached up and turned off th alarm. Thursday it was the same deal, just at 4:55. Neat. :) It's much more pleasant to just wake up on my own, rather than to a loud blaring heart-pounding-inducing noise.
