Some things I am starting today:
Waking up BEFORE the kids. I was hoping this would mean 1-2 hours before them (ie 6:30 or 7am).
For some reason, I can't seem to get up when the alarm goes off. I think it is because I don't HAVE to.
I dont HAVE to punch a clock, drop anyone off or be anywhere at any set time in the mornings so I don't make it a priority to be up early.
And it shows.
One of the blogs I am following is starting a morning challenge that I am determined to participate in.
Sure enough, as I am trying to get this blog typed up so I can follow my own progress, the kids are asking to be fed, for milk and a cup. Which is frustrating because the baby is sleeping on the bed and I don't want him to be woken up because I can't fix breakfast yet because I am nursing him, but then the 2 year old is crying that she is hungry, and I did not finish the blog because I was interrupted and they are already pulling toys out of the room...
It goes on and on and on and if I start the day frustrated by little people instead of calmed by The Holy Spirit, my whole day seems off. Not to mention I need to start preparing myself for homeschooling Lily in the fall.
So today is day 1 of rising before the kids. It may not have been early, but it was still before they got up!
