Waking Up Is Hard To Do

There are a lot of mornings I do NOT like waking up.  A lot.  This was one of them.

I'm off right now (as in "holiday" time I booked to go somewhere I didn't end up being able to go... sad sigh) so I can sleep in if I want.  Which I do.  But does my body agree that I should?  Apparently not.  I mean I *feel* like I'm sleeping in because I've been semi alert for a while (the light in the mornings really really "helps" with that I think) but I tell myself "no, I'll sleep in!"  And then I'm not quite asleep but certainly not awake and I'm rolling over to get comfier that way (but hoping not to trigger my shoulder/arm issue) and then onto my back.... then the other side and the whole time I'm trying to enjoy just sleeping but then it sort of creeps up on me... the .... whispers of WAKEUP NOW.  So I keep trying to just stay asleep and dozy and cozy and then I eventually go... well, ok, I guess I'll start my day and I roll over to see how long I've managed to stay in bed and  HI IT'S JUST ABOUT EIGHT O'CLOCK!

Y'all.... sigh.  It'd be fine if I was waking up "early" like that and feeling rested but I wake up and get out of bed and just want to go nap.  Which I don't but... sigh.  This waking up stuff is for the birds.

Which also sometimes don't help me sleep in!

Edit:  By the way, this post was amazing and wonderfully written when I was half asleep in bed this morning, just saying!  (I guess waking up ruined that too)

I'm sorry you're not where you want to be...but it sounded like a tough start with the gates having to close due to sandstorm.

I hear you about sleeping...I've been getting out of bed at 4:30 to get to work, so when I get out of bed at 6:30 on weekends to golf, I really feel like I slept in. Which is still early to most people...
