Operation: Be a Grownup, Morning Edition.

I have a problem with mornings.

I set my alarm clock, and then I hit snooze until the exact moment that i need to get up, so that i have to run into the shower, get dressed, and then run out the door, so that I can be to work on time.

It doesn't really foster much, you know, waking up, which I usually do while I'm listening to Morning Edition in the car on the way to work.

So in the spirit of Being More Adult, I've decided that September is Mornings like a grownup.

This morning, I woke up with enough time to hang out with Earl so he could have his cone off a little, and then shower (and blow dry my hair!) get dressed, pack my lunch, and then be on my way.

It was quite excellent. tomorrow, I'm going to make myself a cup of tea in the morning, and possibly eat some breakfast.

(today's coffee and breakfast of granola bar was had at the office, at my desk. Rome wasn't built in a day, people)
