If there is one phrase I hate to hear it is, “We have to get up early,” followed by “We have to get up earlier than normal.” Blah!
I’m not a morning person. Let me be the first to admit that!
So Friday night the conversation went a little something like this:
PC to Tbug: We’ll have to get up a bit earlier than normal tomorrow morning.
Me to PC: Really? Did you really have to say that?
Tbug to PC: Why daddy?
PC to Tbug: We’re going to an auction in the morning.
PC to me: Why, you know you won’t sleep in anyway.
Me to PC: Yes, but I like having options. The option to sleep in gives me a better chance to actually sleep in.
PC to me: Oh whatever, you still know you wouldn’t.
Me, I whined some more.
Tbug to PC: Ok daddy, what time do I have to get up
And so the conversation went.
I haven’t ever been a morning person, Not EVER!
So what time do I normally get up for work you may ask? The alarm goes off at 6:35 (yes a random time) and I get up somewhere between the second time it goes off and the 4th time it goes off. It goes off every 9 minutes so you can do the math :).
What time did I have to get up on Saturday? I think PC set the alarm for around 7am. What time did I actually get up on Saturday?
Before Sunrise. To be exact… just shy of 6am is when I got up. And there was no going back to sleep either :(.
So what do you do at that hour? Enjoy the peace.
Enjoy the sunrise:
Play with Audrey:
And watch PC work on the pool:
And eventually after the alarm to wake-up finally goes off, get the rugrat out of bed.
All before my first cup of coffee. Oh wait I don’t drink coffee. I knew there was something wrong with this picture. Wake me up when it’s 10am ok 🙂
