I will admit, usually when I write, I set my posts often times for early morning, for when you (my reader-friends) get up. I see other writers getting up at Oh-Dark-Thirty to do their writings, in the quiet of the morning, slurping their coffee and morning drink of choice with just the clickety-clack of their nails on the keyboard in silence. Just like I just did this morning.
Oh friends. I did this today. Mainly because I had to get up to ensure my van would start, but oh! Sitting here in silence (SILEEEENCE!) with my coffee in the dark and no.noise.whatsoever. And peace. And Quiet. Ahhhhh! (Why didn’t I ever try this sooner?)
Friends, when my head hits the pillow at night, it isn’t much longer before I’m out. Down for the count. Lights out. DONE. My poor, sympathetic husband will pause whatever we’re watching, too, just so we get to watch the rest together another time. (That must get totally annoying, I bet. Watching half a show all the time. And yet, he stays with me. I love that man.)
Now that he’s away at his conference until tomorrow night, there is no after-putting-the-kids-to-bed writing time for me. It’s been putting-the-kids-and-myself-to-sleep time. Last night was 9pm. Night before was 9:30pm. (And I need the extra sleep, but damn!)
The only thing I’m concerned about now, should I keep getting up early to get my writing groove on, is how do I not fall asleep even earlier? How do I still maintain quiet/TV/cuddle time with hubs at night? Definitely got to figure this one out. Any ideas?
