If people were meant to pop out of bed, we'd all sleep in toasters. ~author unknown
Morning and I are not friends. I keep trying to be friends with her, but Bed keeps making me stay with her and Pillow. It's so irritating! And why are Covers and I best friends? When Alarm Clock calls, I seldom have time for her right then. I usually tell her "10 more minutes.... please" .
I found this quote a while back, that I think sums up the whole sleeping experience: The bed is a bundle of paradoxes: we go to it with reluctance, yet we quit it with regret; we make up our minds every night to leave it early, but we make up our bodies every morning to keep it late. ~Charles Caleb Colton
Anyway, I find it extremely hard to drag my butt out of bed in the mornings! Especially since the arrival of fall. The longer hours of nightfall are killing me! I don't know about you, but I find it much easier to get out of bed when the sun is at least starting to rise. And, lately, I've been getting up and into the shower with the lights off. Then at least it feels like I'm prolonging the arrival of a new day. After my shower, my feet find the way to the garage, where I can grab my version of a cup o' Joe (a coke), and then, the rest of the day begins...
Hopefully you enjoyed my ramblings about sleep today! I wanna know...are you a morning person? What gets you up and going in the we small hours of the morning?
