    Once I Get Going...

    I'm fine once I get moving...but getting to that point is the challenge!  I'll hit the snooze button half a dozen times before staggering blearily around my room, getting ready.  I'm usually with it by the time I head for the bus...but that's a full two hours after my alarm...

    Five Snoozes

    7:30 am the terrible screeching sound of my alarm clock can be heard on the other side of the room forcing me to drag my sleepy butt out of bed and slam down on the snooze button. 7:45 the alarm goes off again- snooze. Rinse and repeat till about 8:50 when I finally manage to lug...

    I don't do mornings very well - In fact you

    have to kick me out of bed to get me up. Also the fact that I have to get outta bed at 6:00am doesn't help.

    "Good Morning" is a contradiction of terms.

    So is "Bright and Early" for that matter. My brain works on low power in mornings so if it's early I'm not very bright. I was so tired one time I was about to put the milk away after eating cerial and suddenly nature called, so I went to the bathroom. Guess where I left the milk...

    Not A Morning Person

    I think I'm a pretty pleasant person other than morings.  I mean sure I have my moments of bitchiness, but who doesn't (whether they admit it or not).  I'm definitely not a morning person, though.  Totally a night owl.  I'm not intentionally grouchy when I...
