I didn't think it would happen so soon, I was sure this day would be far off, or maybe never, but I was wrong. Today was the day that I listened, I looked and I thought and I thought and then I panicked! WHAT AM I GOING TO WRITE ABOUT FOR MY SLO POST? Maybe it's the stress of progress reports, which are omnipresent in my life. Maybe it's the fact people are REALLY reading my words. I really can't say why, but today I panicked!
So when I finally did sit down to write I clicked on the topic ideas link. And there it was, just sitting there innocently, speaking differently to all who saw it but to me it was screaming! ~Morning routines.
So this isn't so much about my morning routine. It's more about how I can NOT get myself OUT of bed in the morning! I hate oversleeping and I don't care for sleeping in and I LOVE my job and my life so WHY am I hitting snooze until it expires on my TWO different alarms? There just seems to be something ULTRA cozy about that bed in the morning, something that just holds me tight, and something I can't overcome.
I hit snooze once and fall quickly back to sleep, I hit it the second time and lay there arguing with myself, trying to convince myself that today I am not oversleeping! Suddenly, the alarm jars me again! This time reach for my phone, I check emails and read Twitter and Facebook with the hope of finding something that will catapult me out of that bed. No success.
Each day this cycle continues. I promise myself Starbucks coffee or a special breakfast if I just GET UP, nothing works until I feel the PANIC of expired time! I look over at the clock I see I have exactly 45 minutes to get up, get dressed, feed the cat and jump in car and with this I dart out of bed and begin my day, just like that.
