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!
I Could Use Less Excitement, Too
