It's not the waking up

It's the getting up that I find challenging.

Once I'm actually up and moving forward through the morning routine - coffee, feed cat, shower, get dressed, etc. - I'm fine.  Well, that is to say, I'm fine if did the waking up part AND the getting up part at the correct time.  Otherwise - I am not so fine, instead I am lurching half awake and cursing between the bedroom and the bathroom, with a quick dash to the kitchen before slamming out the door, stumbling down the stairs into my vehicle, and careening madly across town. That's kind of how it went on my last trip overtown.

I'd like to do better tomorrow. And with that in mind, despite the fact that I told someone I would do a certain task "this weekend" and have procrastinated for two days, I am not going to stay up and do it tonight.  Nor will I do it tomorrow, because - oh hai, I will be overtown all day! Taking an exam! Yayy me! (/sarcasm)

Yes, it actually does take me a whole day to go over and take a test. Between the boat schedule, the traffic (over there, not here of course) and the available appointments at the testing center, I'm doomed to always go over on the 8am boat and return on the 5:45pm.  No surprise that I can live with the return time, but it's that morning boat over I could do without.

Wish me good fortune  - I could use it!

Good Fortune being wished your direction!

All that "hurry up and get out" just to sit on a boat would frost my Wheaties, but that's probably why knitting came into my world, LOL.

Good Luck sweet girl! I hear you about the procrastination part. I moan every time the alarm goes off. The older I get, the more I don't want to get up until I feel like it. Good thing I don't live far from work and can walk there. If I had to do what you do ... I just don't know if I'd make it before noon. :) xxoo

I am wishing you all sorts of good fortune. And if you figure out that whole "morning thing," do let me know. I have issues with that myself...
