More on MorningsPosted: November 16, 2009
I’m feeling like an absolute idiot at the moment! A week or so ago I set myself the goal of getting up by 7:00am. I haven’t been very successful. In fact, I’m still sleeping in most days. I’ve also had very little work relief teaching – only two days in fact. Anthony gets up with the boys and gets them off to school by 7:00am and if I don’t have to take them I don’t get up. Our phone only rings four times. Our phone is in the living area. Our bedroom is an extension on the back of the house. Are you joining the dots yet?
I didn’t. Until this afternoon. I was waiting for the boys at the pool this afternoon as one of Daniel’s friend’s Mums had offered to bring them to the pool from school with her kids for a swim. When I got there Eric asked me why I wasn’t working. Why would I be working I asked? Because they heard the phone ringing as they were leaving this morning and presumed a school was ringing me to get me to work. It could well have been however I was unconscious. Oh dear!
I’m feeling mildly nauseous to think that I may have missed DAYS of work because I’m not getting out of bed. So I must get up. Even if I watch Sunrise with a coffee in my hand I need to be up and within lunging distance of the phone. I also need to work on getting a second phone for the bedroom. Pronto.
All tips on getting up early and staying up are welcomed!
