The boys keep fighting. 

Eraser Eater just screamed. I mean, screamed at the top of his lungs. He roared out something like, "I am NOT A BABY!!!!"

I lost my mind trying to reason with them. Not only is it impossible to reason with them when reason comes to mind, it is impossible to grapple this task when it is 7:30 in the morning. The Professor said to me when I exited the bathroom from washing my face, "Why are you such a morning person?" Then he hugged me. 

As much as I love him I felt like slugging him. I just wake up full of hatred. The man wakes me up in the morning so I don't have to use the alarm clock. I am afraid of it. I wake up all night when I use it. Just the idea that sometime eventually it will start to make horrendous noise to wake me up keeps me awake. What usually happens is my body jolts awake a literal minute before it goes off so I can save myself the struggle of hearing the noise. 

A much better alarm clock is the Professor who hugs me awake and says not a word because he fears for his very life. 

I have had coffee but I am still struggling with constructing a sentence that starts with a capital letter, makes sense, and is finished with an end mark. 

And I have only run 12 miles this week. I am pathetic. I just don't feel like it lately. I don't know what it is. 

I make myself crazy.

Don't feel pathetic. You are amazing and you know it. I don't even know you and I know it.

My current alarm clock is my almost two year old who things six is the new seven. Damn Daylight savings time!

R said...

Yeah, I get plenty of sleep and yet I am still tired, like I wake up too early every morning.

I still feel pathetic though. But I have heard rumors about how amazing you are---reading some ambitious list of books. Must read you some Wilkie Collins and Thomas Hardy. Nothing is better in my estimation.

I am the same way when I set my alarm! I wake up over and over, looking at the clock wondering how much time I have left to sleep. I'm used to it now because I've been getting up with the alarm since September, but when I have to set it earlier than usual it's the same old thing all over again.

Morning Has Broken! Like the First Morning!!!
You know what I hate?
I hate the sunlight trying to come into my eyes in the morning.
It makes me grouchy.

I'm a Bat.

The Doozie said...

I have a dark blanket over my window, but mostly thats because of all my weird work hours.

Pathetic? why of course you are! I fully expect you to roll out of bed at the crack of pete, get your shoes on and get your hiney on that treadmill. I want to see 5 miles before breakfast! Do you hear me soldier?!!!!

Whats that? What did you say? Drop and give me 100 maggot!!!

I'm an alarm clock phobic as well. I can wake up to a "click", I hate blaring alarm clocks. I use my cell phone on vibrate and even that puts the fear in me

My tale of woe is that I was sound asleep, but I woke up when Mr. Sinta merely came into the room at 1 a.m. Of course, he fell asleep immediately, and I was up until 3 a.m. My alarm went off at 5 a.m. The only thing that I did promptly all day was turn it off.

Bee Repartee said...

I like to call Doozie at 8am and wake her up after a night on graveyard.

I'm going to add you to that list of calls.

I hate mornings. If God wanted us to see a sunrise, He would have made them later in the day.

Dapoppins said...

My boys fight with each other so often, that when they are getting along I am afraid to interrupt them for things like cleaning up the huge mess they just made constructing a giant alien robot.

Aunt Jo said...

I hate alarm clocks too, but I am married to a bat. I have to have alarm clocks.

you crack me up.....

in our house our baby girl gets up singing and goes to bed singing and sings all day. sometimes my ears get tired. she wakes her daddy, the bat, up asking "Daddy, what can I have for breakfast?"
You gotta love that.

Sleep? What is this thing you call sleep? :o\

You ran 12 more miles than I did.

I have the same problem with alarm clocks! I used to wake up just a minute before it went off, then pretty soon I'd just leap out of bed at 3am, afraid it was about to go off at any minute. I finally just had to quit. Now I use my phone instead, and it plays a little song in the morning. That's a bit less abrasive.
