I slept in until 8:15 this morning, which is basically unheard of for me — true to my grandma status ways, I usually wake up on my own at 7. I get this trait from my dad, who’s also an “early to bed, early to rise” sort of dude; I’m pretty sure my own tendency towards such things is hard-wired and inherited from mi padre.
My sleep habits used to really irritate me when I was in high school (“Why can’t I be a normal teenager who sleeps in until 10 or 11 on the weekends? What am I, a teenage mutant ninja turtle honors student?”), but now I really like it. It gives me quiet time to myself in the mornings, and I use that time to get stuff done. By the time other people are waking up, I’ve checked things off my to-do list and thus feel no guilt about getting some R&R and spending quality time with the people I love. Win!
Anywho, on to this week’s article round-up — grab yourself a beverage, sit back, and read away.
