I’m trying something different today.
On my “schedule” (that I never seem to follow), it says I’m to wake at 0500, exercise and then have quiet time / school prep time.
My alarm goes off at 0500 and I generally turn it off and go back to sleep. I don’t even pretend to fake it by hitting the snooze button.
I decided it’s the whole idea of getting up and exercising that’s causing me to rebel, so I’m reversing the order a bit by having quiet time / school prep time first. . .then *supposedly*, I’ll exercise later.
So far, so good. I got up at . . .
. . .well, actually, I got AWAKENED at 0442 by Jay’s unit calling to inform him that there was a “whiz quiz” this morning. (AKA “urinalysis”)
Now, after 18 years I can tell you that they are always surprised when I answer the phone. “Oh, I’m so sorry for waking you ma’am! Would it be possible for me to speak to Jay?”
I wonder what they would do if I said, “no”? Sometimes, I think I should, just to see the reaction, but considering how apologetic they are at calling, and the fact that it is SO early in the morning, I never do.
However, I’m still amazed that they are surprised that I answer. I mean most of them are married, don’t they know men don’t wake in the night for ANYTHING? Maybe it’s just my men.
Anyway, I not only woke up, but I got myself out of bed. Given the colder temperatures, that’s a minor miracle in and of itself! So far, everything is going according to plan. Oh, and I even got a bonus in! Jay, since he had to drive into work instead of taking the van pool, said he would do the grocery shopping; so, I did up a grocery list for him.
One last item of note. We have a huge hole in the dining room wall. . .More on that (with pictures) later.
