...and I am content to sleep right through it! I am so not a morning person. As a student, I waited until the last possible minute to get out of bed. As a young woman with a job, I did the same thing. There was never enough time to fully wake up before going to school or work. As a new mom, I learned how to get up instantly when a baby cried, but I went through the days never fully awake.
I'm at a time in my life where I can sleep in as late as I want to. The problem is that no matter what time I get up, I still am not fully awake until around noon. It takes awhile for the morning fog to lift and I feel energized and ready to face the day.
When I wake up, I lay in bed for awhile thinking about any dreams I had, making a mental list of what I need to do that day, flexing my ankle and bending my knee to work out any stiffness, and generally letting my mind wander. Getting out of bed when I'm ready to prevents irritability. When I have to get up before I'm ready, I can be quite grumpy. It's a good thing Michael is much the same way and we're both content to not speak to each other right away.
Sometimes I wish I could wake up early and be all bright eyed and bushy tailed. I've tried, I really have. I'ts just not going to become the norm for me. So don't call me or ring the door bell before 11am. If I answer, you'll probably wish I hadn't!
Are you a morning person?
Hope you're having a fantastic Friday!
