"Good Morning To You, Good Morning To You....

Were all in our places with bright shining faces. Good Morning to you! Good Morning to You"
I rolled over this morning, looked at my alarm clock and thought I saw 5:46 glaring back at me. I normally rise, shine and give God the glory at 5:30 and Rand repeats the process at 6:00. I ran into the bathroom to partake in a speedy morning ritual of dental care, hair care, facial color, putting on my clothing and accessorizing myself. I then opened the bathroom door and thought, “Why is Rand still lying there with no sign of life?” I looked at the clock and it was 12:14! I woke him up and said “Did the power go off?” He was not yet giving God the glory and said “No! What is your deal?” I said, "Dude, I am SO dressed for work and it is only 12:14?!” He laughed at me as much as he could, being half asleep. I then went through my evening ritual to get ready for bed again, minus the shower. I am in awe at myself. It was so weird. I felt a bit insane for about a half hour until I fell off into a deep sleep. After all that, I did not wake up until 6:09. It is on mornings like these that I am so glad my Mama is not waking me up to "Good Morning to you..." while opening my blinds and then splashing water in my face. I miss a lot about childhood, but that ain't one of them...I can assure you. Wow, what an insane morning at my house.

Abby- I hit my snooze this morning, and was laying there thinking how wonderful the extra 9 minutes had been. Then I rolled over, looked at the clock, and it was 7:05!!!! Guess I turned it off instead of hitting snooze....
