Waking Up

There are two types of people, I believe. Those that are early risers and those that like to get up once the sun is high in the sky. I am the first, I love the early morning. But because I love the morning, I am not such a big fan of the evening. I am usually ready for bed by 9pm, if not earlier. There are so many nights I fall asleep on the couch, but I digress.
I generally wake up at the same time each morning, regardless of what time I went to bed. I love rolling over and listening to how quiet the house is still. No activities yet, just the stillness. It is these moments that I just enjoy being. I love to get up before the rest of my family and spend time reading or getting caught up on things that were left from the night before.

Then the rest of the house begins to stir. And our day begins. The same everyday. Maddie gets up and spends a few minutes waking her daddy up and then we all cuddle for a little while before it is time to get dressed and have breakfast.

Won't you join me over at The Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Friday?

Beautiful post & I'm a morning person too.

I feel you -- though I'm not a morning person, I love the silence of the house after everyone is safe and sound, asleep in bed.

I'm definitely a morning person. That's when I catch up on all my blogging/blog reading :)

I'm not a morning but I certainly relish the quiet of the house! My kids get up so early that I don't wake before them :) I look forward to reading more of your blog.

Heh. We are total opposites! I love it when my house is quiet in the evening and I can concentrate... my brain is not awake enough to concentrate in the mornings!
and that 7:40am class I had in college was brutal... ;)

I like to wake before the family, and at night I love to be the last one to go to bed and hear the hum of the refrigerator, and nothing else. ;) Hope you are having a restful weekend.
