Awake and Arise

Lately I have been waking up at 4:00am. For some reason my eyes open and I am awake. There is no transition from sleep to awakening. No metaphorical fog to lift. I am just awake. I start thinking of all the things I have to do and I can't go back to sleep no matter how hard I try. Today, instead of lying there with my futile attempt to sleep, I got up. I did a load of laundry, dishes made lunches, muffins and showered all before my family got up at 6:30am. It was a productive morning and I didn't feel rushed. It was nice but I don't think I would like to do that every morning. My sleep is just too high on my priority list. I expect to be hitting the wall at around 2:00pm, right when I need my second wind.

Productive morning. Where can I get one of those? Oh yeah. You have to get up early, don't you? Well, that's out then.

no kidding! my son wakes up so early, but rather than being happy about the time I have been given to get things done I'm grumpy and don't accomplish anything... Good for you for getting things done!
