Morning Practice

This morning my radio came on at 6:45. The clock radios in the bedroom are purposely set 10 minutes fast because....well, just because.

When my radio came on, Ted was in the bathroom. He obviously heard it, because he said, "What's that all about?"

I said, in my brightest morning voice, "I'm practicing waking up early this week."

He laughed at me.

My plan was to start at 6:45 today and gradually back it up to 5:30, rather than just start cold turkey. YIKES!

I actually have a training session to attend tomorrow. I need to be there at 8:00 and it lasts until 3:00. (Can you imagine? All freaking day long. And naturally, the weather is going to be gorgeous tomorrow. Whatever.)

Ted hasn't been feeling very well this weekend, and if he's getting bronchitis like he had last February (for the ENTIRE month, I might add) it needs to be nipped in the bud. I told him that he needed to make an appointment with the doctor today.

He came home about half an hour ago to clean up and change clothes before going to the doctor and he found me *ahem* asleep on the couch in the den. I asked him what time it was. He told me. Then I told him I'd been asleep for about an hour.

"This getting up early thing just isn't going to work out for me."

"I'll call Beth (my principal) and tell her you won't be coming in this year."

Smart a**.

It's a good thing he left for his appointment then, or I would have had to hit him with a pillow...nah, I was all comfy, and really didn't want to give up the pillow my head was resting on.

Your newest background is super! I really wish I could get a background like that . . . oh well.

Since I am retired, I won't say a word about waking up. . . Ü

Cindi - I know, I know about the pictures. I could just kick myself for not taking "before" pictures. I am planning on working in my room tomorrow and Wednesday and I will take pictures then.

Teachers go back on the 19th and the kids come back on the 25th.

However, things are kind of crazy right now because my principal retired on July 31st and the school board has not placed her yet!

I love your new signature. How did you do it?

I've done the practice for waking up early. It does actually help. I don't like it though.

You make me laugh, I thought I was the only who was setting her alarm clock early for "practice". We don't start until Sept. 2 but the teachers go in the end of Aug to do their rooms. They have moved my room every year and it is getting really old because everything has to be stripped in June and all new to do in Sept and since the size of the room and the number of bulletin boards or blackboards varies from room to room you have to figure out to how to set the room up that will work for you. By the way, I love your signature and new background too...where are you coming up with this stuff?

I don't do early well, either. I was upset that I got assigned to teach an early morning class this semester - can't the students just come to my bedroom to learn?
