I don’t care what the song says; It’s Waking up that’s hard to do.

For the last two mornings of our school year, I have gotten up at 7am, showered, dressed, eaten, and been ready for the start of school at 8am. And let me tell you friends, it is hard to do.

I realize there are people who get up much earlier than that with great regularity, but HOW DO THEY DO IT??? I am SO not a morning person, sadly I am not a night person either, I’m an afternoon person. We are a much ignored demographic. I am at my best from about 10 am to 3 pm. Those are my hours.

Unfortunately with A attending Scottish Rite Dyslexia Lab school in the afternoon, things really do work better when we get started by 8. The kids are all ready; they are all morning people like their daddy. I am the only not-quite-awake person around here at 8 am.

Let’s take this morning for example, D got up at the horrendous hour of 5 am to get ready for work. He heard on the radio that there was a Lunar eclipse happening right then. He suggested we get ALL 5 kids up and let them go see it. I do believe my head lifted off the pillow and stink eye was given. That’s all I recall. I think he could have told me that he moon had literally turned to cheese and giant rats were nibbling on it and I would not have gotten out of bed.

Now that it is noon, I am disappointed. I am a good homeschooler, I would stop what we are doing and run outside right now and show them. Why do lunar eclipses have to happen while I’m sleeping, doggonit?

Oh well, surely there is a YouTube video out there of the Lunar Eclipse, right?

LOL. I just posted a similar blog on my site! I'm with you all the way. I don't care what the sun, moon, or stars are doing - let me sleep! Hoping you get on a schedule soon (and a nap this afternoon!). =)

I am not a morning person either, I waking up in the morning. I love morning time, it's beautiful and peaceful, I just don't like how awful I feel, I am a night owl. This week has been real hard for me, first day back at homeschool. Being dressed, ready for the day by 8 makes my day go so much better, but it is really, really hard for me.

I didn't even try to get up for the eclipse, ugh!
