5:30---it's not getting better

i must confess, i thought this getting up at 5:30 am thing would start to get easier. ok, maybe i didn't really think that but i guess i hoped it would. let me tell you. it hasn't. the hubs and i have sort of started switching off though. sometimes he's the one that gets up and walks the girl to the bus stop, sometimes i do. this morning i did. it was foggy. it was early. the girl is a total trooper and so much more a morning person than i am.

i guess the benefit to this is that we get a few alone minutes, though really, carrying on a convo that early in the morning is quite the chore for me. i asked her about the boy she likes this morning. asked if he'd given her a definite answer about whether he liked her. it's not friday so there's no answer. boys are stupid.

she got on the bus; i traipsed back home. it was 6:45. the hubs and the boy were still asleep and i quickly calculated that i could technically sleep at least 20 minutes before i had to get the boy up and moving. so i did. i set the alarm; snuggled back into bed and slept another 20 mins : )

i even had time this morning to stop and get a venti, spiced pumpkin latte (cos i have gift cards from my bday dontcha know) on my way to work. IS good.

and here are a few funnies i got via email this morning. enjoy!

Ok, that latte sounds good. Too bad we only have DD around here. Which I frequent, often.

I used to be a morning person. I would jump out of bed ready to start the day. Now, not so much.

yes i am very excited that the pumpkin spice latte has returned for its seasonal rotation. ah fall!

i have my life been a morning person. it goes against my genes or something. i like DD too, especially with some holes. and hooray for pumpkin spice! i also love that dolce chocolatte something or other they have in winter
