Not a morning person, doesn't even begin to cover it

Well, as some of you have noticed, I have not exactly been on top of posting since I returned to the northwest last week. I had a valid excuse while home in the WV, no Internet or powered computer. Now I am just acting lame.

I would like to say that I have been too busy to write, but that would not be the complete truth, which is different from a lie, mind you.

I have been busy. School has been busy. Life has been busy. My time to write is in the morning before I make my way to the gym and then on to school. And to be honest, that seriously cuts into my leisurely morning that I like to have.

I am not a morning person. So, really there is not a perfect weekday morning. For me, the closest thing is to roll out of bed after Mr. Man gets out of the shower. I am super groggy so I can't really conversate yet. He seems to respect this and tries not to talk to me or get in my way. I appreciate that.

I like to pull on some pj's and stumble downstairs to make breakfast. Usually, it is a fried egg sandwich. I make it so much that I have it down to a timed science and can do it with my eyes closed. Which is good, because I usually do. While I eat, my coffee brews in my favorite French Press, so it is ready when I am done with my food.

Then, I like to take my coffee and sit down with a magazine or at my computer to read all of my favorite blog posts and visit the websites of friends who don't know we are friends (all those people over there, on the right).

By the time I am done, I start to feel the nag to start my day. The coffee has awoken the voices inside my head telling me to go to the gym to lose the boyfriend weight (the weight you gain from dating, and therefore eating like, a boy). They tell me to get my rear to school and get some work done already. They tell me I have had enough personal time so I had better get a move on. And so I forgo the blog post. Another morning gone by. Another day without a post.

As you can see, I really have no time at all for writing (there should be a font for sarcasm).

But, I love this blog. And I love all of you for stopping by from time to time. So, I will be better. I will take the time to write again in the mornings. I just need to make it my routine again after all this time away doing field work and visiting family.

Luckily, I have some extra motivation. There are some changes comin' round here real soon. So do drop by later this week with your morning cup of caffeine and spend some time sipping and reading. I think you are going to like what you see.


  1. oh you have peaked my interest. I await the caffeine buzz inspired prose.

    until then - pickles, pepperoncini, dilly beans, dried tomatoes, canned tomatoes, oh my!
