Waking Up Early!

No matter how hard I try, I cannot sleep late. I have tried. I even got the room darkening drapes made in hopes that darkness would prevent me from waking somewhere in the 6AM range. It is aggravating.

I usually don't get out of bed until around 7AM because, what the heck are you going to do that early in the morning, especially when you're alone?

I've even tried staying up til midnight, but, alas, to no avail. You would think by this time in my life, at my age, that I would be worn out. Not have so much energy.

Well, I guess I shouldn't complain. At least I AM waking up!

That early morning habit is the way to go when it starts getting hot -- you can get a lot done and enjoy a lot of the day before the heat sets in.

If I absolutely must stay in bed, I grab a book. Usually konks me out in a chapter or two. A paperback is best, so when you doze off, lose your grip and drop it on your chest it won't wake you up.

I have the opposite problem, I have a very hard time getting up before noon. I do most of the time but it's because I make myself get up and wander around until I'm awake.

I can relate though to the question of what do people do early in the morning. On the odd days that I am up early, I can't figure out what I should be doing. I always assume that nothing is open, no one I know is available to talk and even the dogs just open one eye and then go back to sleep. It seems somehow sinful to watch TV that early, reading puts me to sleep, the internet doesn't open until noon, right?

Ha 1st Mate, like the idea of the paperback. I've been reading this BORING book about Carlotta, Empress of Mexico and it is so darn heavy that I squirm around in the bed to find a comfortable way to hold it to read........paperback, why didn't I think of that?
Jonna you lucky devil. I do like the early morning hours for reflection and meditation. Or gardening....but other then that, it sure makes for a LONG day.
