What happens when...

I go to bed at 8:15pm {which never happens, but did last night}.

  • I wake up at 4:45am
  • I feel rested and wide awake
  • I decide to go for a run
  • I head out on a loop from my house {Back Bay} around work {Harvard Square}to back home
  • Stop in at my office for a potty break
  • Decide to work for an hour
  • Run back home
  • Take The Baby Pup to the park to play
  • Head home
  • Realize it is only 7:20am
  • Do 2 loads of laundry
  • Do 2 loads of dishes
  • Clean kitchen
  • Clean bedroom
  • Furminate The Baby Pup
  • Shower & get ready for work
  • Pack lunch
  • Arrive at work early

Now, I have heard tales of the early morning productivity wonderfulness from several sources, including these crazy two who get up in the 4 o'clock hour everyday.  But after living that life through high school with swimming two-a-days  and soccer, and then for a short stint in college while rowing crew, I have opted not to, unless extremely necessary, during my adult life.

However, after my amazing morning today, I might be a convert.  The run, five-ish mile in total, was wonderful, cool temperatures and fast.  I actually didn't listen to music {not the norm for me} because it was still a little dark when I headed out and I always want to be aware of any 'stranger danger' going on.

The weekend is so near I can taste it.  I'll actually be tasting fluoride first with a trip to the dentist before hopping on a plane to Chicago to celebrate my little brother's high school graduation.  Oh Bufante, how can you be graduating high school?  You are just a baby!

Now a little tribute to Bufante, because what kind of sistoid would I be if I didn't participate in some good old fashioned embarrassment?

Bufante doesn't have his head stuck in the clouds. He prefers the sand.
Bufante make butter taste good. Bufante like butter.
Just because you are considerably taller doesn't mean anything.

Congratulations Bufante! You are an amazing young man and I can't wait to celebrate with you this weekend.  Love, love, love you. Mwa, Uhh :)

* What are your plans for Memorial Day?? Family, fun, BBQ?


  1. I'm am such a bad morning person - but I couldn't agree with you more, when I wake up early out of force, I always love seeing the sun rise and getting so much done before the day even starts!


  2. I love early mornings, but apparently I just can't get my sorry self into bed early enough. We usually crash around 11:30ish, and 5:45 is as early as we can drag ourselves out of bed. We tried getting up at 4:30 for a week (We were planning on walking the dogs) but...yeah. We failed. Kudos to you!!

  3. I am impressed that you can go to bed at 8:15!
    We are now mortal enemies..Im coming to Boston for the Stanely cup finals!!! Cheering for Vancouver though, can you give me any advice of what I should do?? eat?

  4. It is a rare thing for sure, but yes, I love how productive the morning hours can be!

  5. Paws - I love giving unsolicited advice about the city I love{even if you are cheering for the other team!}, so you made my day by actually asking. I'll shoot you an email and hook you up with some sweet spots!
