Rise and Shine

This morning I heard my oldest daughter KT get up and ask the dogs if they wanted to go outside. I smiled at the thought of being able to sleep in for a little while longer without having to get up to let them out. I had just drifted off again when I felt the gentle thump of little feet jumping up on my bed. This was immediately followed by a larger plop and the chattering of my child. I have no idea what she was talking about, I’m pretty sure it had something to do with the dogs as my husband stretched his arms out and started chatting back.

I gave a huge sigh and gave a very obvious tug of the blanket, before pulling it over my head. There was a brief moment of silence before the loud conversation began again. I had begun to get the feeling that sleeping in was going to be futile. I was sure of it when they started noisily playing with the dogs.

When all my subtle (and some not-so-subtle) hints didn’t work, I screeched for them to go away calmly asked them to find somewhere else to talk.  They left after a bit of mumbling about how grumpy some people were in the morning. 

Of course, by that point, I was completely awake and couldn’t get back to sleep.  I decided to make the most of it and just rise and shine.  Well…at least rise.  Shining seemed to be asking a bit much after my rude awakening!

    I have a tendency to be grumpy in the morning, too. This is particularly true when I expected to sleep in that day! Thank you for sharing.

    The picture on my Mary Englebreit calendar for this month says, “I hate morning. And mornings….and people.” I can kind of sympathize with you. 🙂
