I get up early, at least early compared to when I used to get up maybe 5-6 years ago, but when I roll out of bed, the sun is already peeking over the horizon. Most mornings I’m up between 6:45 and 7:00. I don’t like feeling lazy, and if I’m bed beyond 7:30 at the latest, I feel like I’m sleeping the day away. As such, I’ve never actually seen a sunrise. Now, what do I do when I get up at the time I normally do? For starters, walk the dog. He won’t go for anyone else but me, much to my amusement, and I don’t want him crossing his legs and turning green waiting for me to get up. When I’m done with that, I make my breakfast. Either a bowl of cereal or a Slim-Fast shake, depending on if I have the powder in the house or not. As a side note, I’ve had more 2% milk in the last 5-6 months than I’ve had in my entire life before now. After that, once a week I check 5-6 different job posting sites, looking for any administrative, clerical, or data entry work that is available right now. My day continues from there.
If I was fortunate enough to see a sunrise, I think I’d like to sit on the porch, enjoy the quiet, and wait for the orange-yellow light to spill out over the top of the willow tree in the front yard. There’s nothing going on in our neighborhood at that time, so I could enjoy this little moment of solitude in blissful peace.
