Too Old to Sleep In?

When did I get too old to sleep in? Maybe it is wedding stress or the new house or trying to train the dogs that has me up on the weekends before 8am. Or maybe it is just age, but for some reason, regardless of how late I go to bed, I am itching to start my day around 7:30am.

Now the husband can sleep in until noon if given the opportunity, however he too has been affected with my early rising. This morning for example, I woke up, took the dogs out for their morning training, made breakfast and then curled back up in bed with Mike who was still in dream land. We got a good twenty minutes of talking and catching up before he got out of bed to bring me coffee.

It wasn’t as if I had a lot going on today that I had to get done. I picked up around the house, cleaned the kitchen and then watched football and caught up on emails. In fact he left to help at the fire department and came back a few hours later and I was still just lounging around hanging pictures on the wall and organizing the office. It’s like now that I am in my 30’s the responsible me wants to get up early and be productive, but my 20’s are still holding on to lounge-ware and non-productive days. It is too early to tell who will win.
