I should focus on the Veterans. I am married to a Viet Nam Marine after all (and so very proud of him if none of you have noticed 😉 ), but today I got to sleep until 8 a.m. I got to go to bed without thoughts of lessons, children, schedules. I slept straight through which is another amazing feat.
I’m not a morning person. I was once upon a time when the boys were little. I trained myself to get up before them so I’d have some time alone during the day. But they’ve been gone. I like to stay up late and read or watch a movie. I love to sleep till 8 a.m.
Now my mornings start at 4:30 to 5 a.m. Monday through Friday. I’m grateful I can get up. I’m grateful for the car and the job and the kids, and the holiday that falls on a weekday when I can sleep in.
