Morning Guilt

She looks hungry, don't you think?
I am up with the chickens every morning, even on weekends. I don't have any chickens but if I did, we'd be sharing sunrises together.  I realize I've already written about mornings in a previous post, Who's To Blame.  The thing is just the other night, I had every intention of trying  to switch my writing to evenings but I'm finding it very difficult. I wake up with stuff on my mind and it has to go somewhere. 

Most mornings I get up and turn on the coffee pot.  I let Missy out and fill her food dish and change her water. Sometimes she'll eat her food so fast that the next time I look at her dish, I start to question whether or not I have already fed her. She always has this look on her face like, "you forgot to feed me". I have major guilt issues about that. My dog is too fat and I worry I haven't fed her enough. I seriously need therapy.

Sometimes I toodle around until the coffee pot finishes, grab a cup and head to the computer or sometimes the light box. Lately, it's been the computer more times than not.  Now, I have a treadmill that I'm incorporating into my morning schedule, which is where I need to be right this moment. 
Here's my To-Do list for today:

Grocery Store
Cut Gene's hair
Go for a drive
Shoot some photos
Make something fabulous for a late lunch(maybe something for later too, see Green Jello)
Attend Kristina's birthday party tonight!

Gotta go! It's going to be a beautiful day!

love, susan


  1. Nice to hear about your routine! I wish I were more of a morning person. My body is finally starting to want to be one, but when I get really tired at 9:30 p.m. it just makes me angry so I fight it until I get a second wind. That's why you see me posting things at 2 a.m. Pure stubbornness.

  2. Now that the light is changing, I'm having trouble sleeping. The other night I actually got on the treadmill after 8:00 p.m., then took a quick shower and slept like a baby. I've never been able to exercise at night but am just going with it.

  3. Thanks for the shout out, Susan - You rock it, girl ;)!!


Why Fly When You Can Drive

This is going to be a quick post before I clock back in today. I am a little out of sorts since I was on vacation last week. I know I...
