For the past few weeks I have been getting up without an alarm clock. I have been chained to one for the last 6 years or so. My husband still sets his alarm (though I never actually hear it go off), and when he rises that is my gentle reminder to start my own day.
I loathe alarm clocks and have an unhealthy addiction to the snooze button, but this has been very nice. I hope I can go on this way. I feel like things have been running a little smoother with my new morning routine. I am not up at the butt crack of dawn, but I do feel more productive during the day. Oh well, I am enjoying it while it lasts.
