Sleeping in or up early? Depends on your perspective, I guess. Sleeping in for me this summer means not rolling out of bed until after 6:30am—the dog wants what the dog wants and when she hears people awake, she wants to be a part of it, be fed, be taken outside. During the school year, it's at least an hour earlier, to get the kids out of bed to catch the bus to school.
And to be honest, I don't mind it that much. Sometimes I even wake up a little bit earlier, to go for a walk in the neighborhood, to enjoy coffee in the silence, to sort out my schedule or write in my journal, to take the dog out and watch the new day's light roll up over the trees. And it's cool out. Barely in the 70s, a light breeze that's almost cool.
It's my favorite time of day. Just don't ask me questions or anything. I'm shit until I've had my coffee.
