This, my friends, is a sight I rarely see. It is the sunrise out my diningroom window. I am typically not a morning person. In fact, quite the opposite. I would much rather work til 2 a.m., and then sleep in til 10. But with kids, that's pretty much not workable. However, I still tend to work til midnight or after and then be a bear in the morning when my children all awaken and drag me out of bed. It's really not the best start to a day for any of us.
So even though I have tons of things that I want to work on after the quiet of bedtime settles over the Clemmer house, I've made myself go to bed the past 2 nights by 11 p.m., and this morning, when my hubby prayed with me before he left for work at 6:15 (as he always does, I'm just rarely coherent for it...) I actually woke up and got up! Amazing.
I will admit that I am still very tired, and would like to go curl up in my bed again, but am pretty sure that if I can get going before the kids, it will set a better tone for the day, and get them moving and getting school done earlier, etc. I know I've even said this before...I just have trouble sticking to it! (And I'm not making any commitments here saying that I'm even going to try!) :)
I'm just saying...I'm enjoying this morning, the quiet of house, my cup of English Breakfast Tea, and the sunrise.
