WOBURN, MA―Noting that she had somehow managed to sleep through both the dawn chorus of birds and her neighborhood’s early morning garbage pickup, 53-year-old local mother Laura Maloney confirmed that she did not awaken Monday until after the sun had risen. “Oh my gosh, it’s light out already!” said Maloney, adding that she could not believe how late it was and that she would have to leave for work in less than three hours. “I’m so mad at myself. This is going to throw me off and make it impossible to fall asleep at a reasonable time tonight. I’ll probably be up until 9.” Maloney went on to acknowledge that she should have known better than to stay awake to watch all of 60 Minutes the previous night.
