Alarm-less

Since about December, I have had the alarm set for 5 and then 4:30. I get up, suit up and hit the road to the pool. This was to ensure I could get my swim in and get back home before all the people going to work hit the roads. When school is out, the rush hour traffic is considerably lighter. School is out this week. So I turned off the alarm. I woke up at 4:30. I even closed my eyes and stayed put assuming I'd go back to sleep.  I didn't so I went to swim. The water temperature was perfection. It was crowded, though. Mondays are always a little more populated so maybe that was all it was. Hope so.

I do like having the extra hours in the day that I get with getting up so early. Even when I have nothing planned which, of course, is most days. It's just luxurious to have had my swim, had my breakfast and be leisurely sipping my coffee and having it be not yet 7:30. On the other hand, I'll probably be nodding off tonight by 9.

The baseball game is at 2 this afternoon. It's the first home game of the season. Ordinarily it would be a massive fun time that everyone has been looking forward to since last October but after yesterday's debacle, it's more like egg shell walking. We hope they left the stupid on the road but we're pretty sure - based on 40 years of experience - that they did not. The stadium was all lit up and the jumbo tron operating this morning when I passed it on the way to the pool. At 6:30, when I came home, some of the retirees who work the game were already heading into work.

My right arm has been bothering me again. I know it's caused by a combo of sleeping on it funny, knitting, sewing, swimming and computing. But, I don't know how to stop those things to let it heal. Last night it was just killing me. The monster making, I think / hope, with the necessary continuous machine work, made it worse. It feels better this morning and, hopefully, it will let me make a doll or two today.

I'm going to give it a try anyway.
