How many of you are in a relationship where you both have to wake up early in the morning but at different times? Could I get a show of hands please?.........ok, thanks, there are a number of you. How do you deal with this problem? Or maybe it isn't a problem for you. Perhaps you both jump out of bed at your predetermined times all perky and singing a happy song just chomping at the bit to begin your day. If so, I'm happy for you, truly I am...
If you were laying next to me, however, I would have to kill you!
Currently my alarm goes off at six giving me about 7 hours of sleep. Based on years of research this amount of sleep seems to work for me. While I'm not exactly perky when I get up, I am awake, and that is the most important thing. I have enough time to shower, dress, put on my war paint, pack my lunch, eat a hot breakfast, pick up a coffee and arrive at work by 7:10am.
My "other half" on the "other hand" doesn't have to be to work til 9:30am!! Yeah, so what the heck is he doing setting his alarm for....wait for it.....
Well, you'd have to ask HIM about THAT!! But I can tell you it sometimes includes a jog/walk around the neighbourhood, but today even though his alarm WENT OFF at 5am he decided he was "too tired" so stayed in bed.
Meanwhile I laid there wide awake waiting for MY alarm to go off at 6am.
As a result I dragged myself through my day and by the time I picked Michael up at 3:30pm I was feeling just a wee bit CRANKY!!
I think I will leave you with a song...because Bob said it best - "the TIMES, they are a-changin'!!!!"
Good night all, I'm going to bed early tonight!
