I will never forget the day when I was a little girl, my family and I went grocery shopping at Albertson's, I plopped my butt down under the cart and unbeknownst to me, my dad had put on a mask, bent down under the cart and scared the living daylights out of me while my mom was pushing me in the cart. From then on out every time we walked in that store I would say: "Member that time daddy scared me with that mask? You member that?"
I love that not a single Halloween goes by without him reminding me of it!
No, no...not THAT season. Not the season of stockings, Santa and snowflakes. The season of Fall colds.
We are celebrating this season in full force up in this hizhouse.
Much to Forks dismay, I've been up since 4:30a (even though he could have cuddled for another 2 hours minimum), took a screaming hot shower, piled on about 53 different layers and and made myself breakfast.
A breakfast of hot tea
And curried ginger carrot soup.
What?! You don't have soup at 5am when you are sick? Curried ginger carrot soup at that?
I actually am fully aware that this all makes ME the weirdo, just play along will ya?
Aww - look who came to check on his momma!
Actually he's screaming at me to turn the lights off and go back to bed. He must not like celebrating this flu and cold season as much as I do.
It isn't that I'm not a morning person, it's just that I really, really love staying cuddled up in bed for as humanly long as possible. Though there are good things that can come of this; a restful night/mornings sleep, waking up with warm fuzzies and getting to cuddle with Forks a little longer...there are some pretty annoying things that can come of it to; hitting snooze one too many time and sleeping in 45 minutes later than you had wanted, not having time to make coffee in the morning, having to throw my hair up in a pony because I have zero time to do anything else with it, and ultimately just starting the morning, day and week with my cranky pants on.
I've set a goal for this week to be up e a r l y everyday. Even though today is only day one, I'm already loving it!
Here are some things I've accomplished:
Unloading/loading my dishwasher.
Signing up and getting my yoga classes squared away for the week.
Sorting my laundry.
Putting up a few more Halloween decorations.
That's right. Who knew this morning stuff could be badass after all? I can't forget to thank my Morning Muse #1 and Morning Muse #2 for the awesome morning inspiration!
Wish me luck for 5 straight days of morning awesomeness!
