I love getting up early.
No. Not really. In fact, I hate getting up early. Sleeping in is one of my favorite things to do. On any lazy Saturday morning, you’ll find me lying in bed with two dogs and a baby. Just snugglin’. It’s awesome.
But, despite my preference for snoozing in the A.M., occasionally an early morning does occur. Read: I woke up early today.
Yes, yes. The baby, who used to sleep through the night but recently has started waking up 2-3 times per night (hi, I’m sleep-deprived), got up this morning at 6am and had no interest in going back to sleep.
At first, I was irritable (especially since I had been up at 12am and 4:30am with the little man) but then a great thing happened. Sex and the City is on at 6:30am..who knew? So, I enjoyed 35 minutes of Charlotte, Samantha, Miranda, and Carrie while my tiny dude pulled on the mastiff’s face until he tuckered his little self out.
So, there I was, awake in the morning (all jazzed up from the show) with a sleeping baby. This quickly led to me sitting on my back deck with a cup of coffee, a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios, and a reader full of blogs to read. Read: This is the best Monday morning ever.
While basking in the early morning sun, sipping a cup of joe and being inspired by many lovely bloggers, I stumbled across this post: 27 Ways to be an (even) Better Person. I loved it. I really need to work on no. 9 and everyone should work on no. 16…just saying.
Thanks to that little blog and this lovely morning (and quite a bit of coffee) I’m feeling energetic, uplifted and excited for the week.
So, Happy Monday! What do you do when you find yourself with free time in the morning?
