So yesterday went really well! I did need a mid-afternoon pick me up (iced tea!) and oddly, I needed more snacks, but it worked out really well. The whole point of getting up so early was to have things done before the afternoon heat hit, but yesterday ended up to be nice and cool. No crazy afternoon heat. And yet, tons of benefits to an early wake up!
1. All day I kept thinking, "woah! I got so much done today!" I love that feeling.
2. I played with my kids more.
3. I did not feel overwhelmed by my every day stuff (a sink of dishes, a load of laundry to fold). I just puttered around and got it DONE.
4. I had much more patience for my kids' antics because I was going at a slower pace and not feeling panicked about getting everything done.
I got to bed early last night (well, earlier) and was up at 5:30 this morning wishing I had gotten up at 5 like yesterday. Well see how long this lasts...
