Do you use the "snooze" button on your alarm? I do. I think I probably hit at least three or four times everymorning.
My alarm goes of at 6:29 am every morning and every morning I slap the snooze button. Then it goes off at 6:35, 6:41, and 6:47. At 6:47 I force myself to sit up in bed. I know that if I don't get my kids up in the next few minutes we'll definitely be late for school. We have to leave the house at 7:40 (translation: we scream our way to the car at 7:58 each day).
I would love to be one of those people who gets into bed at a decent hour and wakes up to shower and cook breakfast before everyone else wakes up. I'd really like to wake up at 5 and exercise. Years ago, I used to wake up at 5am and hit a 5:30am yoga class every morning. Some mornings I'd even have time for a quick run when I got home. What happened? I can't seem to get myself to fall asleep early in the evening. I find myself up working. If I'm working on a specific project it is not unusual to find myself still working past 1 or 2 am.
If I want something, shouldn't I figure out how to make it happen? I've been spending some time thinking about how to get back to a place where I feel less stressed, rushed, and frazzled. A place where I'm following my own advice - Mom is key and Mom must be whole and well. I'm not feeling so whole lately.
What to do? Perhaps I should set the alarm for 6am? Guess what? I am pretty sure that I'd still press "snooze" until 6:47am.
