6:00: My eyes reluctantly open and I look at the clock. 6 a.m. on a Sunday morning. No! I must be dreaming. Close your eyes. Pretend this never happened. Go back to sleep!
6:15: Great, I can’t fall back asleep. Let’s try this one more time. Close your eyes and drift back to the pleasant dream you were having—the one where you had the most amazing day ever because you slept until 11 a.m. and awoke refreshed and ready to start your day.
6:30: Alright, this going back to sleep thing isn't working. Grrr, I muster the strength to pull myself from the warmth of the cozy bed and groggily stumble down the stairs. My legs feel heavy and my eyes cloudy. Should I just go and climb back into bed?
6:45: I make it the kitchen…finally. First cup of coffee. Yumm…blueberry coffee with lots of milk and sugar. I could be a morning person if it means that I have an excuse to drink several cups of these before noon.
7:15: Second cup of coffee. Still groggy. Is there even caffeine in this? Why isn't it working!?
8:00: Feeling a little more awake…and I mean a little. Alright, that’s it. I’m going back to bed. Wait, no, I can do this.
9:00: Okay, it’s been three hours since I woke up. I’m feeling grouchy… still don’t want to talk to anyone. Should I have a third cup of coffee?
9:30: I need to do something productive. I guess I’ll write my slice!
10:00: Finished my slice! I should reward myself for being so productive already. I know exactly how…I think it’s time for a mid-morning nap!
