3:30 in the Morning

At 3:30 this morning I woke up and suddenly thought, "I didn't prepare a writing prompt for this week, and people always look for it Sunday morning!" Fortunately, most people aren't up this early in the morning, so it wasn't a big deal to get something posted before any of you missed it!

What is it like for you when you wake up in the middle of the night? Are you able to get back to sleep easily? Do you lie awake and think about things you have to do? Write about your experiences.
