Morning Person?

REALLY UNIVERSE? You are sending me THIS message this morning?

I just wrote this tweet.

Although I do believe while I was snuggling with Harley in bed I was saying “I hate mornings with the light of a million suns.” Whatever that means, I *might* be a little melodramatic before my morning coffee.

A few minutes after writing this Tweet, I grabbed my cell phone, it flashed saying LOW BATTERY WARNING and this made me check all the silly pop-up notifications in the header. I really can’t stand notifications, I clear all of them as soon as I see them.

For some odd reason, I clicked over to Pinterest while clearing—-and the first pin on my feed?

THIS. Um. Really? Me?

8 Ways to Become a Morning Person

My Thoughts on 8 Ways of Becoming a Morning Person

#1—I make HWMMS open all the curtains and the door when he leaves in the morning? Without biting his head off.

#2—Define, DRINK? Ha. Because I sort of thought this line from Archer was priceless. (And I actually really do like a morning glass of water with Apple Cider Vinegar, VERY refreshing.)

“At 7am? You care for bourbon?”

“Deeply.” -Archer

#3–Happy tunes. Ah, yes, remember the days of clock radio alarm clocks? I once recall blogging about the idea that waking up to Great Big Sea every morning would put an extra bounce of vertical movement in my step. But do I? Nope. Instead I have this dreadful fall back cell phone alarm that I have added lyrics to that go a little like this “Shut the F*** up now, please shut the F*** up now whydon’syoushutthef***up.” Not kidding, ask HWMMS he can verify since he hears it every 15 minutes on snooze.

#4—Um, yeah, I hardly have time to get coffee together in the morning, breakfast? Happens much later. I’m not even thinking about food most mornings when I get up.

#5—A Little Lovin’ ha. I read this heading and thought morning nookie? πŸ˜‰ And then I thought extra snuggles with Harley Barley Boo. I do love getting HWMMS coffee in bed. And he does the same for me. Despite loving my husband and my doggies, I still am ANGRY when I get out of bed. Mindset. I need to shift my mindset.

#6—The Rest of The World. I know KNOW I shouldn’t scroll my cell phone in bed. But I do. All the time. Maybe if I refused to look at it until I did all these other lovely things (which includes spending time on the porch with coffee) I’m online all day, part of my job. I need the rest of the world to revolve around me at this hour instead. I like the idea of a book or most importantly journaling my morning head dump instead of texting it to myself in snippets to review later. But that requires, getting out of bed earlier!

#7—THIS! Except I want to do it at night before bed to clear the list from my head. And there has to be the ONE eat the frog thing that has to be done first.

#8—In a perfect world, I would get up and meditate on the porch while drinking coffee. And then take the puppies for a short walk, just to kick start the day. In the MOST PERFECT WORLD EVER. I then go swimming for 30 minutes. Yeah, right. As it goes now, the most exercise I get in the morning is rescuing Jordan from the woods if her leader gets caught around a tree. And only if it’s my turn to do so.

Now here’s the thing. I’ve been paying attention and LISTENING to these synchronicities in life the last few months. This one? Can I pretend it didn’t happen? πŸ™‚

UPDATE: And now I see this come through my feed. Um. (I’m listening?)

    I am decidedly NOT a morning person either. When I do manage to get up earlier than usual, I’m always pleased and amazed at how much I can get done, but it hasn’t changed my behavior this far. I call Garaud “Rooster Boy” ’cause he’s up at the crack of dawn (or earlier in the fall and winter months). I made him a bet back when I was teaching (retired 10 years this June!) that I could make it to work on time every day…lost that bet! πŸ˜‰

    I’ve read similar lists before and they just make me laugh. As hard as I try to get up “earlier” (my definition vs. that of an actual “morning person), it rarely works β€” ‘though, interestingly, when we’re away from home and vacationing somewhere I almost always manage to be up much earlier than my average…and that “average” changes regularly. Hahahahahaha!

    I could write this exact sentiment. I’m always amazed at how much I get done when I do get up early, but morning person. Neverever.
