Who are you and what have you done with the REAL Bubba's Sis?

I was up at 6:30 this morning. By choice. Well, sorta. Daughter has to pick up her schedule at the high school at 8:00, but I could have easily slept until 7:30 then rolled out of bed, jumped in some clothes, and drove her over there with sleep still in my eyes. But as Hubby was kissing me goodbye at 6:30 (he does that every morning - isn't that sweet?) I decided to just get up. I've already had my first cup of tea, washed and combed out my hair, checked my e-mail, and balanced my checkbook. I'm watching the day slowly get lighter, listening to the chirping birds and watching them at the bird feeders outside my window (Good morning, Mr. Cardinal!). This is the first morning all week that it's not raining, altho they say it will be by afternoon. But for now I am enjoying this early morning peace. If the mosquitoes wouldn't eat me alive I'd enjoy it out on my deck, but here by my big bedroom window is the next best thing.

Am I crazy? Maybe. I didn't go to bed until 2:00 this morning - was chatting online with a friend going thru a family crisis. But starting Monday I'll be up this early every day - Daughter's school starts at 7:20, Little Son's at 8:10. I can't guarantee I'll be this bright-eyed and bushy-tailed every day, but I'll be up and ready for my chauffeuring duties.

Then I can come back home and take a nap. That's enough morning for me, thankyouverymuch.

**UPDATE - By 2:00 this afternoon I could barely hold my eyes open - I HAD to have a nap! I slept for 2 HOURS! So much for Miss Morning Sunshine. The REAL Bubba's Sis is back!

Ahhh, I have been enjoying sleeping until 7am these past few weeks but that is all about to change next week when I have to get up again around 5:45am. Hopefully Peepers will want to nap when we get home on these days.
I love being up and having time before everyone else does. It seems so peaceful.

BTW - I've tagged you but please don't feel obligated. I hate tagging people, it's kinda like those e-mails you must send to 8 people right away.

Wow...gonna have to check in on you in a week or so and see how you're fairing. This morning is the first morning I was dragging...up late (not as bad as you tho!).

I usually get an hour of sleep more than Bubba (well, I think it evens out because I end up not actually falling asleep the night before until WELL after he's already snoring!), but starting next week that's going to change, because little man is going to daycare! Ahhhhh!

You shouldn't stay up that late, it's unhealthy.

I think you should update us right about now and see if you need a nap! My boys both woke up at 4:30 this morning...I've been tired all day!
Take care,

P.s. I loved the bunny suit comment the other day! I haven't seen a bunny in my grocery lately and I hope not to!

I will be waking up at 5:30. I know I won't be as bright-eyed & bushy-tailed as you were this morning. Really, who are you?

I hope your friend is ok.
