I could get used to this!

After getting up at 8:30 this morning, even though I sat around and drank my tea and read blogs, once I started moving I still had plenty of time to get things done. It seems like the hours just stretched out ahead of me and if I had chosen to, I could have gotten twice as much done as I did. But for me, I did a lot. I need to feel like this all the time.

Is this how other people feel? Happy to sit and watch some TV but also perfectly willing to go do the dishes or pull all the bedding off and do some laundry? Vacuuming during commercials and changing the towels in the bathroom as I walk by?

What the heck? I cannot believe it’s only 6:30 in the evening and I have done more than I did the entire 2 weeks I was home from work right before Christmas. Okay, that’s not so hard to do considering I got nothing done during all that time. I enjoyed having those days off, but I was tired and just wanted to sit at the computer, watch TV and sleep.

Once I get my bed made (and maybe take a swipe at the bathroom) and get my tea ready for morning, I will have the whole rest of the evening as a guilt-free reward for being so productive today!

I really hope this isn’t a one time thing, or a fluke. If I continue keeping my hours regular and sleeping well, maybe I can have this much energy all the time. I can only imagine the things I might spend my time doing. Because it just seemed like there were so many more hours available to me in the day!

So I have to ask, is this how other people feel when they get up early (8:30 IS very early for me) on the weekend after a good nights sleep?

Welcome to my life:) I LOVE the feeling of accomplishment.

I spend a lot of time being tired. I would never think of vacuuming during commercials. Maybe I need some of your better sleep.

Ohh I get up at 6.30am on weekdays so 8.30 is a lie in on the weekends. Luckily my 6yr old likes her bed!! But getting things done is another thing altogether I only want to create!!

I don't know, I've never been really happy to get up before 9am ... ever.

Even if I went to bed at 6pm the night before, which happens when you tuck in small cuddly children, I STILL hate to get up!

Not so much a morning person here, either. I get up early only because I *have* to.

Vacuuming and stripping the bed? Never do it willingly, only when the critters threaten to overtake the small people do I bother ;)

Glad you're feeling better!! :)

I used to get up at 5am every morning, regardless. When I moved to America, my boy "retrained" me (he says!) to sleep in until 6.30 on weekdays and 8am on weekends. So yeah, I get less done and I miss that. But I suppose I'm more normal....
