Just Do It, Already...and random things...



My alarm sounds at 0500 every morning. Whether I get up lately apparently is optional. Yesterday I got up and we ran, lifted weights, jumped rope and various other things. We are always done by 0630. That's the bonus. I don't think I could ever work out at night again. This morning I was able to sleep in---0600 and be at the causeway (bridge over the intracoastal waterway). We have to run the causeway because since we are at sea level, hills are a little hard to find!
When I come home the house is still quite and I begin to read the paper as Sam gets up, comes in, gives me a hug and sits down. It's the same routine every morning. I think the boys like that. They know what to expect and I suspect they don't really wake up until after their cereal anyway!
It's a gorgeous day today!!! The palm trees are looking a little puny so they will get fertilized today. Funny how palm trees seem to grow and survive just fine after a coconut just floats up and takes root. Plant them in your yard and they have to be fertilized and watered regularly. Huh. That speaks volumes about something, I'm sure.

as far as the palm tree inference... it's all about ownership!!!

You are one dedicated woman to get up at 5:00 am. I'm not a morning person at all. I'm doing good to go at 8:00 am

Believe me, "Morning person" is not a word that describes me! However, if exercise is to be done, 0500 is the time for me!! After 1 1/2 years, it is STILL hard to get up! Thanks for writing! I love your site!
