I was thinking I should start setting an alarm in the morning to get myself onto a schedule. I just never actually did it. And yet, I've been up around seven every day this week.
Internet, meet my new alarm clock:
I used to find June outside the bedroom door every morning when I came out. She'd station herself there when Raj and our roommates left around seven and wait until I got up, usually around 8:30.
Then she discovered that she could open the door.
So now I wake up to a wet nose on my arm. Which could be irritating except then I open my eyes and she's just so damn happy I'm awake.
Oh look you're up too well I was thinking we could go play outside or maybe I could lay on the couch next to you and take a nap while you eat breakfast? Now that you happen to be awake! So...you're going to get out of bed now?
And then I do.
