. . . or something like that. Today was the first day of school. Back to the 5:30a wake-up call! By 9a I had ironed clothes, got all 4 kids off to school, walked a mile on the treadmill, showered, dressed, and curled my hair. I had forgotten how alert I am right after the kids get on the bus in the morning, at least during the first few weeks of school.
The funny thing is that at 9a I was doing the same thing that I had been doing for the past few months at that time -- making coffee. The difference is that last week, I had just rolled out of bed at 8:45a to make that coffee. Today, I felt like the day was halfway over by the time I started sipping my first cup!
