Rise Up

I've gotten into the habit of waking up early. Mostly because D gets up early (6:30am) for work. At the start, I grumbled about being woken up as I work steady afternoons and chose those hours because I wanted to sleep in.

Now that I'm pretty used to it, I can definitely say I have become more productive. I write and read more. I've been a better friend as there is more time available to connect. And I get a lot of thinking time.

So my days end up being 16hrs long. My paid work starts when most work days are 50% over and it ends when most peoples' dinners are done. By the time my dinner is done and I've decompressed, it's nearly bed time again.


  1. "The early bird gets the worm" the saying goes. Glad it agrees with you. I am a morning person; just as well since my two little boys will wake me up at 6 AM anyway...

  2. Hi Sandra!

    I was thinking of all the moms out there when I was writing this post. I cannot imagine being awoken every 3 hrs or so all night long on top of having to be up early!
