All through my life, I used to enjoy getting up early. Very early. The earlier, the better, it seemed. I got so much done in the early hours when no phones were ringing or people were coming to the door.
The past few years? Not as much as in the past. My age is slowly turning me into a person who enjoys sleeping in. Now, when I say “sleeping in”, I generally mean getting up at 6:00 a.m. instead of 4:30 a.m. But that extra hour and a half feels soooooo nice! 🙂
That being said, I had to get up at 4:00 a.m. today in order to be at the church to open up at 4:45 a.m. There actually are people who come very early to pray before the 6:30 a.m. Mass.
After the Masses, I locked and alarmed the church and then went to lunch with two friends from the parish. We went to Teibel’s and had a great time. Good food and even better company.
But now? Now, I’m just plain ol’ pooped. All the energy is gone and I’m thinking sleep.
5:45 a.m. wake up tomorrow. But good sleep tonight. Come on, Sandman. Make it happen.
