I so think of myself as an early morning person that I'm now retraining to make sure I stay that way. Really. It's nuts. Most of it, I guess, is for swimming. I love the early morning swims but if I start sleeping in every day, getting up at 6 three days a week will be torture. My alarm goes off (NPR on) at 6 every day but I have fallen into the habit of just ignoring it or dozing through it on non-swim days. No more. The rule is... up at 6 every day. Turn on the light - either go swimming or get coffee and computer and check in on the day.
New rules. I am a morning person. I am.
So, it's 8 and I'm all caught up on the internets. Next is breakfast and then... bear knitting while watching TV or listening to my book. I don't have anywhere I need to go or really want to. I have too many nice and interesting things here.
