Meet the New Me: 5:41 Can Kiss My BLANK

Filed under: Check-it-out, Family

Time to meet the new me. She is a girl who gets enough sleep every night. Well, almost every night. There is no predicting how long I might stay up if engrossed in a good book. *growls at E Lockhart for not getting to bed early enough last night* But in general, things for this girl are looking up because today is the LAST day I have to look at this ugly number on my alarm clock…



5:41am can kiss my BLANK because today is the 13yo’s last day of school. AND he’s moving to a local school–a closer school in the fall. So, for over a year, unless there is something specific making me an early riser, I don’t have to be out of bed until 7am. (It’s one of the perks of not wearing make-up, living in jeans and learning to make the best of bed head.) Tomorrow the new me rises out of  the comforter and smiles at a new day.


Hey, don’t look at me like that. I get it. There are people out there who have to get up earlier than 5:41 am and there is no end in sight to their misery. (And yes, you ARE a freak of nature if you’re a happy, well adjusted morning person who can fall asleep at 8pm and get enough rest. Weirdo.) But for those of you who mainline coffee until your face pulls up off of your shoes, I DO feel bad for you. (((hugs poor husband)))  Know that I really do feel horrible for all you alarm clock masochists out there. But I don’t feel nearly as bad for you as I feel happy for me right now. LOL! I know, I have no tact. But maybe I’ll have a little bit more tomorrow–when I wake up at 7am.

What time do you have to wake up? Any relief with summer coming? Are you–GASP–a morning person?

  1. Kim! Anything in the 5 a.m. hour should be illegal—unless it involves waking up for a vacation!— in my opinion! I used to get up at 5 a.m. to drive into the Bronx from Poughkeepsie (out the door at 5:30). UGH!!! It was dark out… I would blast the radio to help keep me awake!

    I am a morning person if my morning starts at 8 a.m. or later. 🙂 LOL!

    That is so nice to be done with the early rising for a while. I always love summer, and will wake up in the summer to pack up some lunch and make some coffee for my hubby, but then it’s back to bed for me! 🙂

    • I subscribe to your definition of a morning person!!!!

  2. Enjoy! I hate alarm clocks with a purple passion, so I know how good it feels when you don’t have to use one. 🙂

  3. I’m so happy for you, Kim. 🙂 No, I’m not a morning person and I rarely get up before 8:30 am. I love no longer having to wake up to an alarm, which wasn’t too terrible when I worked at a bookstore, but was horrific when I had to wake up my sons at 6:00 am so they wouldn’t miss the 6:40 bus. Blegh! Enjoy your sleep (and ha! I know exactly what book kept you awake).
