Morning

My husband would love it if I was more of a morning person.

And so would my Kindergarten teacher. My parents had to take me out of morning Kindergarten and put me in the afternoon class because mornings and I were already at odds when I was 5 years old.

And so would my 7th grade general music teacher. It was the first class of the day, and I arrived just a minute or two late at least 90 percent of the time. As the rest of the class sat silently in their riser seats, I would walk in, unpack my notebook and walk to my seat with a captive audience. I'm more embarrased about that now than I was back then.

And so would my early morning seminary teacher. Let's just say we didn't get to know each other very well.

And so would my high school zero-hour goverment teacher. I racked up enough tardies in his 7 a.m. class to spend several days in the "pass room" (in-school suspension). He had no mercy.

And so would my college French professor. My mom and I thought it would be a good idea for me to sign up for this 8:00 class my freshman year, to help me "get going" every morning. Not a good idea. He seemed to enjoy saying mean things about me in French, which he assumed I didn't understand. I wouldn't understand now, but I did then! I passed, but probably just so he wouldn't have to deal with me again.

And so would my first full-time boss. He threatened to cut my pay by 50 cents an hour if I was late even one more time. Which I wasn't. Thanks for the life lesson, Mr. Porter.

I could go on, but I think you get it. Becoming a morning person (if I choose to accept the mission), could prove to be an exceptional challenge.

P.S. This is way off topic, but I just bought my son a bunch of really cute clearance items from The Children's Place. I also used a promotional code from this website. But the reason I'm telling you this is because I need to have a baby girl. Someday, please! Boy clothes can be fun and cute, but I would really love to dress up a girl someday.

I totally wish I was a morning person.

I used to be a morning person and then I got married to the snuggliest man alive and now it's nearly impossible to get out of bed before I absolutely must. Maybe one day...

Was your french teacher Prof. Sanford? He was pretty snarky sometimes.

Yep! That was him.

I'm a middle kind of person. I don't get up early and I don't stay up late. Thus far it has worked out for me. . .

You were doomed by your genes. Sorry.

It's by far easier for me to be a night person but I am capable of doing both which I have come to appreciate greatly as I hear more and more of people who just physically can't function at certain times of the day.

Hm I just had a thought. Maybe since I wasnt blessed musically or in some other way I was blessed with this weird thing. To be either morning or night. HA!

(Just saw your comment about Arrested Development. Did not know they were making a movie!!!! See, I'm saying the fun 'little secret' us fans share in our commodore. I'm totally following you now.) :)

I need to have a baby girl, too. Though I don't mind the 1000s of dollars have two boys has saved me.

Just means more for Little Miss, whenever she comes along.

Every morning for the last two weeks I have set my alarm to get up and get things (like exercising, showering etc.) done before Milo wakes up. Too bad every time I hear my alarm, I shut it off and keep snoozing away. Well maybe tomorrow.?.
