>Ah, Saturday morning.


Bubbleboo often addresses the Small Talk Six on Saturdays. I haven’t tried yet, but this one looked like fun. Here goes: my first Saturday Small Talk Six.
The First Six Things You Do When You Open Your Eyes In The Morning
1. Squint at the clock.
2. Stretch.
3. Turn off alarm. I often wake just before it goes off.
4. Visit the bathroom.
5. Consider how this will be more difficult when the remodeling project starts and we have no bathroom on the second floor.
6. Stagger downstairs to feed the rabbit, shower, and prepare for another school day.
The weekend version is similar.
1. Squint at the clock.
2. Wonder why I wake up at 5:30 on weekends.
3. Use the bathroom, consider the upcoming demolition and remodeling and the accompanying challenges.
4. Give up on going back to sleep, stagger downstairs.
5. Feed rabbit, start coffee.
6. Read morning newspaper.
You might wonder why I didn’t mention coffee in the weekday set. Simple: I set it the night before. It’s primed and ready to start dripping while I’m showering and getting dressed. Be Prepared is the Girl Scout motto, after all. It works for me!

Share and Enjoy !

  1. >It's the focusing on that clock that always gets me. Why is it always later than I think it should be?

  2. >Yes, why DO you wake up at 5:30 on the weekends? Can you not fall back asleep after your internal alarm clock goes off? My husband has that problem, but I absolutely love sleeping late on the weekends. It's worth the pain of trying to get to sleep at a decent hour on Sunday nights.

    Our coffee is always ready to go too. We use the timer during the week. On weekends, we just have the coffee and water ready to go and the first person up (almost always Mr. EM) turns it on.
