Too Early

I am seriously going to be hating life this afternoon.  L got me up at 4:30.  I got mad about a couple things that happened last night (that I believe are symptoms of other things that need to be dealt with), and now I can't sleep for thinking about them.  I'm trying frantically to keep up with my house and with my kids, and now I'm going to be tired on top of that.  If I go back to sleep now, I won't be able to wake up.

I realized the day before yesterday that if I wake up when my alarm goes off and start right in getting my act together, life runs so smoothly, and I'm a much happier person and am able to accomplish so much more during the day, but if I wait for Z to get up, I'm behind all day long, and it's just frustrating,

So...I guess I'm up and had better get moving.  The alarm's going off in nine minutes.

Wish me luck in keeping it all together today.

Aw, I know where you're coming from. My last four babies just slept in the bed with me until they were weaned, so in some cases almost two years, to avoid this very problem. Sleep was too precious with all else I had to do to let my brain wake up. That was my way of dealing with it.

Good luck keeping it all together! *hugs*

Also: I meant to say that I also agree about waking times. I felt it a great, terrible injustice that I, the stay at home parent, had to get up earlier than the working parent in order to make the house run smoothly. Fought against it for years and years. Finally when I accepted it and just got out of bed and let the perceived injustice go I was able to function better. I'm not ascribing the same perceived injustice to you, only saying that I know where you're coming from on this front, as well.
