Happy New Year, Weekend Recap and What the Hell?

someecards.com - Let's usher in the new year by scaring off a mythological, noise-sensitive, child-eating beast who lives under the seaHappy Chinese New Year.  It is the year of the Water Dragon.  Kind of cool.

This weekend was actually pretty quiet.  It starts here.  We went to hockey on Fri night (SHUT-OUT win against the Capitals).  Saturday we went to the gym and then to a movie.  And home to watch….yup, even more hockey.  It continues here.

Sunday we hit the grocery store and then settled in for some football.  A good friend came over and there was hot dip, ziti and brownies.

Now, what the hell is the matter with me?  Today was going to be a new start.  To get up when the alarm went off.  Get ready for a run and be efficient about getting it done and cleaned up and then to work.  Nope, didn’t happen.

The alarm went off and I do remember it.  I turned it off and said Michael will head to the shower in a few and then I will get up. Well, the next thing I new it was after 8.  Which meant that Michael showered, walked the dogs and was already at work.  What the hell?

Any tips for how to get back into a routine and get my ass out of bed?

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.

  1. somehow get the snooze button away….where you actually have to get out of bed to shut the alarm clock up. 🙂

  2. Mari-Anne has it right. Another option is to make yourself get up and go to the bathroom when your alarm goes off. Have your workout clothes in the bathroom–when you see them, you’ll realize you are up, so you might as well get dressed and grab a bite to eat. Then head out.

    If you get your dogs used to you getting up earlier, they’ll be your back-up in no time! Our cats go off between 4 and 5AM every day now even though I only get up early three mornings a week.
    Good luck!
