Starting to Feel the Chill of an Early Fall

Last night after work we had dinner in the back yard. It was really nice outside, but a bit cool, which took me by surprise. My daughter actually put on a sweatshirt because she was a little cold. It felt more like mid September, not early August. I'm not ready for Summer to end yet. The weather needs to stay hot for a few more weeks please.

I finally managed to drag my ass out of bed this morning and get out for some exercise. It was cold out! I was wearing just shorts and a light jacket and I was kind of chilly. Damn.

I warmed up once I started walking.

Something about August always makes me feel somewhat melancholy. It's like once August hits, I can feel the Summer slipping away and Winter looming ahead. I try not to think about it, but I can sense the cold and dark weather coming. It's like you can feel it in the air.

In the meantime, we just gotta enjoy this summertime weather while it lasts!

I was very sleepy again this morning. My baby daughter slept better last night, but she still woke up a few times because her teeth were bothering her. When the alarm went off I have to admit I got back into bed, but then my daughter started crying a little so I got up to help her. After she was settled I figured I was up so I may as well get my ass in gear.

My not being able to wake up in the mornings is more my own fault for not going to bed early enough than my daughter's for waking me up. I've gotten into a bad habit of staying up way too late, sometimes past 11 PM the last few nights. I need to get back to getting to sleep earlier so that I don't have such a hard time waking up.

I know if I can get into a routine, I'll be all set. It's overcoming that initial inertia and starting the routine that is the hard part. Well, I got it done today.

Try and keep it going again tomorrow.

Like my Dad says....

If you are going to hoot with the Owls in the evening - you better soar with the Eagles in the morning - now get outta bed!
