Maybe It's Time to Change Again

Nothing major. But one thing that evolved out of commuting every day and waking up really early was an insane habit of staying up as long as humanly possible.

It had nothing to do with where I worked*, it was just . . . I knew when I went to sleep, my mind would be turned off until it was time to leave again. And leaving was something I couldn't bear to do. Staying awake into the wee hours of the morning was my way of hanging on to my time at home. I didn't make the most of the time. I didn't seize the moment. It was just procrastination of the inevitable.

And so far this week, I've found that even though I love waking up in the morning while the sun is up. I love the fact that I'm not sneaking away from my family while they sleep. But habits don't break easy with me. So I'm shooting for earlier. I'm making a commitment right now to go to bed at a reasonable hour.

Dang, it's after 10:30, and I'm kind of into this episode of Scrubs. Oh well. Next week, I'm totally going to change.

*most of the time
Or maybe I should just write up a new post.


  1. I have the same problem, except that I don't get up all that I guess it's not the same problem. But maybe the reasons are the same.


  2. I totally relate to this blog. I did the same thing when I was working (and for the same reasoon), however, I still have to get up early to see Kaitlin off to school.


It's okay. Let it out.
