Sometimes pushing through feels great

No surprise here that last night was a pretty crap night. I fell asleep a little after 11, only to be startled out of bed by our bawab calling on the interphone to say J had forgotten his scooter outside. I was so sleep fuddled that I didn't know where J was--he was in bed--and told the bawab that I had no idea when he'd be home.

Then Junebug woke up at 2:15, then 3:30, maybe because of the vaccination he got yesterday. At 5:15, I could have sworn I heard someone ringing our doorbell. I checked, but no one was there. I fed the cats and stumbled back to bed.

5:45 and my eyes popped open, my brain saying, Hey, aren't you supposed to be writing?

I told the brain to shut up and go back to sleep because Junebug didn't need me yet. The brain started thinking story, though, so I got of bed and had my best writing morning yet.

Everyone slept in, and I was able to finish up the chapter. Well, finished all of it but one page before the peace was no more (completed it a little bit later).  I don't know that rising early has become routine for me, but my body seems to be helping the brain in making it happen.

I know!
I just kept thinking, "What day is it? WHere is he? Should he be home?"

Good for you actually getting up and writing! There've been times when I thought I would... and then just lay there, thinking about how I was going to get up, yes I was, most definitely--without actually ever rising.

Ha! I've frittered away many a writing hour in just such a way. :P

I somehow fear my days of long lie ins are finished with this whole "get up early to write" thing. My body has definitely gotten into the habit of it, waking me even after I stayed up too late reading and could have really used the extra sleep come morning.

Hello! Forgot you not. :-)
Hello there, young bean :-) Happy Birthday!!!

I'm so glad that you're getting in some quality writing time - impressed, too! Can't be easy with two cutie-pies (sorry, three - mustn't forget J) to care for.

Paul sends his regards and hopes all is well, as do I. Take care - and I'll try to be better at keeping in touch! <3

Re: Hello! Forgot you not. :-)
How funny our brains are. I've been thinking of you, too, of late, wondering what you've been up to.

I would have never believed that I'd get up early to write, but it really does seem the key to getting some time to achieving it.

Give my regards to Paul, too. :D
