Do other teachers struggle with sleeping in during the summer? I’m sure I’ll get used to it eventually, but I woke up at 5:45 the other morning. Now, technically, this is sleeping in for me. During the school year, I often got up at 4:30, so 5:45 is a nice solid extra hour and some change. Here’s the problem for me, I wake up when the sun comes up, and I just can’t stay in bed beyond that time very often. I think this is for several reasons: 1) I just can’t sleep anymore and I’m restless 2) I feel like I’m wasting time 3) I hate it when I get up and it seems like a good portion of the day is already gone. I’m just hard-wired to be a workaholic. It’s the beast within that I honestly have to fight, otherwise I’m sure I’ll work myself into an early grave. I think a huge part of why God gave me the husband is because he makes me rest and have fun more often than I would on my own. Oh well, the early hours of the morning are good for blogging.
