M orning moans, wanting to stay in warm cocoon
O pen my eyes, that is, if they open.
R oll into the bathroom, usually around four
N egative thoughts about it still being dark and try to get back to sleep
I nstantly regret that decision because my brain won’t shut up to let me sleep
N ow the people in surrounding apartments are getting up, parking lot outside bedroom window full of rumbling engines trying to warm up, ice scrapers scraping, car door beepers clicking, dogs barking
G ive up, get up, going to get coffee to start reading blogs, check phone emails, weather and latest news, hopefully not seeing T’s photo anywhere while doing that.
