Rise and shine!

Today I showered, got dressed and did my hair and make-up (and am looking pretty good if I do say so myself!); wrote some Christmas cards; put some gifts together, emailed SJ (we’re so bad at keeping in touch that we only email back and forth about three times an hour); looked up a recipe online; wrote out my grocery list and got to the office. Here’s the kicker… it wasn’t even 10 a.m. by the time I finished all that!
Anyone who knows me will be very, very impressed by my morning productivity. I am a night owl– always have been and thought I always would be. But I have decided to change my late-night ways and am attempting to keep a schedule that gets me up before 7 a.m. and puts me in bed before midnight.
It’s only been two days, but it’s going well so far. I got ready, changed out the screen door for glass, packed my lunch, had breakfast, paid bills and changed around the furniture in my bedroom BEFORE 9 A.M. yesterday. Consequently, I was asleep shortly after 11 p.m. last night. I used to get phone calls at 12:30 a.m. because my friends knew I’d be up, but those days may be over. It’s a tough transition, but I do feel very, very productive.
What inspired me to completely change the schedule I’ve kept since college and convince myself I want to see the sun rise from the tail end? Tell you all about him later…

Is he a reverse vampire? You can tell us.

i’m married to a morning person. it’s really, really hard some days to see him up and about – on a weekend no doubt – ready to start the day at 6:30. mostly because it really is painful to open my eyes to the light of day at that ungodly hour.
