Not a morning person....

LC wakes me up at 6:14am wanting to "snuggle"

ME: [insert sleepy, mad, whiny, baby girl voice here] Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, me want sleepies

LC: C'mon

Me: Noooooooooooo, puh-leeeeeeeeeze let me sleep til 7.

[LC rustles the covers while throwing a tantrum and gets out of bed]
[time goes by]

LC: It's time to get up.

Me: Meh, okay. [look over at clock and show a face of disgust]. IT'S ONLY 6:54! Grrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What's bad about this is that Puggy is at Gma's house for a visit this week. I do not have to get up early to take her out. What that means is I get to sleep til 7. I don't care if it's only 6 minutes til 7, I want, no, I NEED those 6 minutes. LC is a morning person. He gets up 2hrs before he has to be at work. He makes his coffee, eats his breakfast, does his man stuff, takes a shower, and gets ready for work. Me, on the other hand, I like to wake up at the latest time I possibly can and then rush around like a mad woman getting ready then not being able to find my keys, shoes, and phone. And, it never fails once I get into my car, I realize I've forgotten something and rush back into my apartment to get it, and then finally, I am ready and off to work. LC and I are polar opposites. Forgetting things always makes me think of Iona from Pretty in Pink. Andie (Molly Ringwald) asks Iona (Annie Potts) if you have to go to prom, and Iona says,"You don't have to. I mean, it's not a requirement. A girlfriend of mine didn't go to hers. Once in a while she gets a terrible feeling, like something is missing. She checks her purse and her keys, she counts her kids, she goes crazy. And then she realizes that... nothing is missing. She decided it was side effects from skipping the prom." Ha! I've included a couple of pictures of her for your enjoyment! I love those 80s movies by John Hughes!

I am so not a morning person. That scene sounds straight out of our bedroom.

I never was a morning person, but thanks to the creature who call me Mom I have been forced to become a semi morning person. The hubby has to be out of the house at 6:15am & HATES the fact I sleep until 7 in the school year & even later during the summer.

And who doesn't love the John Hughes movies? They're all phenomenal & classic.

I love my sleep even though I don't get enough of it. Most people think I am a morning person, but I just am good at putting up a front.

I completely understand what you're saying. I hit snooze a few times before I have to get up, and every minute counts...so what if I'm rushing around trying not to be late to work (it's so worth the few extra minutes of sleep).

I am sometimes a morning person, but some days it just feels good to stay in bed until the latest possible time I can manage to get ready.

Loved this post! I am not a morning person either. And we share the same love for 80s movies, I recently just posted about pretty in pink and about NOT being a morning person! :)
