As my mom and Jim can attest to, the sun, in all its blazing glory, decides each morning at 5am to rise up and light up the sky. It's really awesome for the trees, birds, insects, la-de-dah...as for me, who really enjoys sleeping until 7 or 8 am (not 5:51am this morning...a'hem!) is it not so great.
Fortunately, Wal-Mart sells 99% light blocking curtains. While not exactly big enough, let's hope this works. Stay tuned... :)
