Sunday Morning
My weekend mornings have been starting exactly the same for a couple of weeks now. First, my body wakes up earlier than planned. The times vary, but it's always startlingly early. "It's time to go do something," it tells me. "Let's go, let's get up!"

I get up, sleepy and grumbily. It is still early in the morning, so I settle in for a leisurely morning of relaxing before I start my day. I get comfy on my couch with a computer, a book, or the television, usually at least two of the three.

At this point my body looks around and realizes, "Oh, there's nothing important to do? We're just going to sprawl here awhile?"

Then my body gives up, gets sleepy, and I take a nap. Or you could just say I finish my night's sleep. I don't know, does it count as a "nap" if you've only been up for an hour or so?

Every weekend morning recently, this has happened. Now my question is: why isn't my body all eager to get up and get going on the mornings when I'm actually trying to get to work on time?

I have exactly the same problem, I hate it. I wake up about 7 or 8 am and then I do things. I then need to go back to sleep a couple of hours later. It's furstrating.

I dunno the answer there, but I love the icon! :)

Cause your body isn't excited about going to work?

I find on morning work days I have to do mild exercize like crunches to get my body going.

On mornings off I blame getting up early on approaching old age.

Chuckles... I actually went to sleep early and woke up early this morning, perhaps you should try getting an uncomfortable matress that wakes you with a backache?

I dunno...that sounds like a less-than-ideal solution. (:

Ah... do ya think? Fortunately it doesn't really bug me the rest of the day.

i kinda did that on Sunday moring. we crashed pretty early on Saturday night, and around 10am, my body decided it was tired of sleeping. i got up, did a bunch of productive stuff around the house, and then took a bit of a nap in the afternoon. all in all, not a bad way to spend the day. i feel a bit guilty though, because my "to do" list is HUGE, but so much of it is outside stuff and it's been stormy and/or ridiculously humid so i can sorta justify not doing it. for now. (:

we should do dinner sometime soon!

Yes, I'd love to do dinner next week! (this week I'm in Cleveland) I think I'm currently free any day but wednesday. How 'bout you? We should drag that coffee-girl along too. (:
