This morning I woke up waaaay before my alarm thought I needed to.
My typical MO (modus operandi) when I wake up early is to do the only rational thing and close my eyes and go back to sleep. This particular morning, however, my eyes and my brain refused to cooperate with the going-back-to-sleep plan.
Did you know that the plural of modus operandi is modi operandi? Of course you did.
Don’t ask why; I have no idea. It’s not like I went to bed early last night. But there I was: awake. Not bleary eyed where-is-my-coffee awake, but really awake. Brain functioning awake.
While going back to sleep would have been the better option, there is something delicious about really awake before you have to get up and start the day.
Things I thought about while lying in bed wide awake:
This week’s menu. Here’s what I thought: we should have one. (I never actually got around to creating it.)
Today’s blog. Here’s what I thought: I should write one.
My comforter: Here’s what I thought: I love snuggling here knowing I don’t have to get up for an hour or so.
House cleaning. Here’s what I thought: Someone should do that.
Dreams. Here’s what I thought: I can’t remember what I dreamed about.
Clothes. Here’s what I thought: Maybe I should decide what to wear today.
Clocks. Here’s what I thought: Why the heck am I awake?
Sleep. Here’s what I thought: I should probably try to get some.
Reality: Here’s what I thought: Yark! My alarm is set to go off in 10 minutes!
Breakfast: Here’s what I thought: Yum!
Clock. Here’s what I thought: How did it get to be time to leave for work already?
