Sleeping In


I slept in this morning for the first time in…I honestly don't recall. I awoke naturally, at 10 am, refreshed, my mind and body having slept without the daily interruption of the cursed alarm clock. My wife was hours gone, off to class, and I bolted out of bed to discover that my daughter, who has been know to rise at 5:30 in the morning on weekdays in order to watch cartoons on BOOM, was fast asleep.

She lumbered downstairs about an hour later, giving me time to enjoy a couple of cups of coffee.

We enjoyed a nice day of it: brunch, errands to the bank, the cleaners, the pharmacy, Starbucks.

I need to figure out a way to continue the run, waking naturally and rising not when my alarm clock tells me to, but when my body does.

The past two Friday nights, Cam & I have fallen asleep on the couch well before 10pm/PSYCH. Last week, that was followed by sleeping in til 10am. Feels like college - working hard and late through the week, crashing on the weekend.

From my point of view, sleeping in each day has gotten old. I am ready for the alarm. Oops, time for my afternoon nap.
