Dear Internal Alarm,
It is so nice that you have been getting me up before 6 to dilly dally around (or worry about upcoming labor, new baby and Andrew's introduction to siblinghood), but if I am exhausted and ready for a nap by 8:57, then I think we need to make some changes. I understand that you might want to prepare me for the odd hours of living with a newborn. But, you see, I am not living with a newborn yet and I would rather just cross that bridge when I get to it. That makes sense, right?
So far today I have been making English Muffins. Like croissants, there seems to be a lot of futzing with the dough and then letting it rise, more futzing, more rising, etc. So the early hours have been good for that kind of futzing. But, I was hoping to do a little cleaning today and I seem to be stuck in this chair at the computer. And, I blame you, Internal Alarm, for going off too early again this morning.
In the future, please be considerate of my need for rest and sleep and allow me until, say, 7? 7:30? before going off.
Early Morning Baker
