Monday Morning

I have a long list of topics to write about, but most are weightier than I feel like tackling in between rounding & grant writing today.

I started my new schedule of early rising to work (more on that another day), and it went wonderfully, even though B did wake up in the middle of it and complained about being tired (I sent him back to bed, and then they both woke up 15 minutes late wanting breakfast). I'll have more time once they recalibrate from the time change, but I'll miss how EASY bedtime was last night.

I'm motivated to work hard by the goal of NOT working next weekend. I really want this grant to be 90% done by Friday at 5 pm so I can forget about it until I proofread and tweak minor things on Monday and then get it submitted by Tuesday. One can dream.

I've nearly decided to NOT watch election coverage tomorrow evening and just go to bed early and see the results when I wake up. I need to wake up extra early Wednesday anyways, and have a long day ahead. It won't be good for me to stay up fretting (and stress eating).

I am, however, excited to go vote. It never gets old, but it'll be particularly meaningful this time, I think. I'm definitely planning to take the kids, too.

Lunch is sounding good right now...


  1. I thought I was the only one who loved how easy bedtime is after Daylight Savings! I always wake up before my kids, so on Sunday I got to sleep in and we woke up at the same time, which was nice. And this morning, instead of having to drag them out of bed, they woke up raring to go. The only sucky part will be commuting home tonight in the dark. :(

    I am always excited to vote, too. Even if I'm not that excited about the candidates (which isn't the case this year), I love being able to do it. This year, I'm getting super anxious, though. With early voting now, it makes me feel like I've left things til the last minute. I'll feel relieved once I've done it.

  2. I also love how easy bedtime (in theory should be) because of Daylight Savings Time. Actually, right at the switch things are great with my daughter. She falls asleep at a reasonable time, and seems more rested in the morning. It's kind of a nightmare for my son. He still takes forever to fall asleep and then wakes up at 5:30am the new time and is a mess all day because he's exhausted. Blerg.

    I wish we could just get rid of regular time and keep Daylight Savings Time all year.

    Good luck getting your grand done! YOU CAN DO IT!
