Oh yuck. This girl likes to sleep. Unfortunately, I don't go to bed early. So every morning, I sleep until my first little monkey wakes up & then spend the rest of the day catching up. I love our morning routine...I love waking up and having snuggle time while they drink their milk and eat their breakfast. I don't like immediately thinking about when I am going to have time to take a shower, do my work, do laundry, clean the house. I don't like hoping Lela will take a morning nap just so I will have time to blow dry my hair.
So my goal is to get up earlier. I would love to give a specific time every day, but I think that is too rigid for me and will end with me living life exhausted. And that's not good for anyone. So my plan is to get up 1 hour earlier than normal. For example, I usually get up at 7:30 to take the girls to school...now I will get up at 6:30. For bible study I usually get up at 8...now I will get up at 7.
What am I going to do with this hour? Most of the time it will involve getting ready. But that doesn't normally take an hour, so I am going to pull forward the events that distract me from focusing on the important things & do them before the girls get up.
So how did it go?
Today stunk. My alarm went off at 6:30. I woke up but couldn't move. I laid in my bed until 8:00 and looked at my ipad. I hate hate hate mornings. And now I am so so so tired, but can't go to bed. Here's hoping that tomorrow is better.
Not sure what tomorrow's resolution is...but it's definitely going to be something easier.
