My oldest (crazy monkey) goes to bed sometime between 8 and 9 (lately closer to 9 because it’s summer).
My youngest (little monster) is up till around 11.
After monster goes to sleep I turn the computer on and get caught up on blogging, reading, and otherwise try to enjoy some quiet time until around 1 or 2am.
Then I sleep in as late as possible the next morning and jump back on the computer to clear my reader of anything that popped up after I turned off I went to bed.
But since it’s summer and the oldest is out of school I’m trying something new.
Swim lessons are at 10am, the garden has to be watered, I have to shower (yah right), etc in the morning.
So I have been waking up early.
Like 6:30 early (which for me is the butt crack of dawn).
My plan was to wake up, eat some breakfast, enjoy a cup of tea or coffee, and have some quiet time on the computer.
Can you spell FAIL?
Dog 1 thinks it’s a good idea to bark at every blade of weed in the backyard that whispers in the wind.
Open windows means the kids can hear him.
Which means the sleeping children are no longer asleep and my quiet time is down the drain.
They start with demands for breakfast (which we all know I don’t make), hold me, can we go to Starbucks, I want, I need, please mom all before 7am.
This was not my plan.
I’m now tired and grumpy.
Who can give me a new plan?
