Scientifically Proven- Today!
I have this theory- and I know I have bored you with the details before...but bear with me here. When I get up by 6:30 I feel so much better all day! I have more energy- I get more done, I am in a better frame of mind. Every time I get up early this happens!!!! Now if I get up earlier than 6:15, it doesn't work, I get tired after lunch and feel like taking a nap- BUT when I get up by 6:30- have devotions, get completely ready before the kids get up- and then for a bonus and I get on the treadmill after lunch, I feel like 100 bucks!!!! And can even stay up later....Late meaning 10:30pm instead of 9:30. We are not night owls.
This schedule has been messed up ever since Day Light Saving time and we "fell back". I have been sleeping til 7....reading the Bible frantically- having a much shorter prayer, throwing Dave's lunch together, slapping some make-up on--so I could be ready when the kids are up. (**side note, in my opinion, if you are homeschooling and you sleep in and then expect to get your quality time with the Lord, get dressed and ready for school without the kids climbing the walls- you are CRAZY!) (**Another side note- if you expect to homeschool in your pjs with your hair a wreck and looking like trash- you will feel like trash, and maybe even teach like trash) These are all of my soapboxes in one post!!!!!!
All that to say, I got up at 6:30, I feel great and I hope you do too.
Sorry for all of the I's in this post- but after all, this is my personal journal...I promise if I talk to you in real life, I will want to talk about YOU! So, really how about you, what time did you get up today!?!?!
