Since the day I was born, I have been one of those people that really likes to sleep in. Sleeping in post children comes to staying in bed until around 8:30-9:00am. Pre-children, I could easily snooze until lunch time. Ahh... the relaxation...
I have been struggling lately with the getting up early for school routine. After two weeks off for Christmas and other random days since (like MLK day yesterday), the days the kids have school just makes me groan. Even with going to bed pretty early last night, the alarm clock going off still made my head ache and the dread set in.
"It's still dark outside.. I could sleep for at least another two hours.."
Once I literally drag myself out of the covers and drink my version of a morning cup of coffee - Coke Zero - I'm ready for the day. As tired as I am at first, I am happy to report that I tend to be a really go-go-go person once I'm out of bed. It's a good thing with the schedule I keep. Perhaps I keep the schedule that I do because I enjoy running all day?
This morning Madison and I both sat on the couch together, both trying to muster up the ability to get out of our PJs and into some actual clothes, when I said,
"Oh Madison, I'm so sleepy! I'm already ready for Spring Break!"
"I'm so sleepy that I'm ready for SUMMER Break!"
And so the countdown begins...
