Good morning & happy weekend
Did you catch Popcorn’s first walk yesterday? I’m so glad you guys are enjoying his little adventures as he learns how to live in a doggie-world. It’s only been a week since I brought him home, but the little guy has already nudged himself right up against my heart.
Good news, I actually woke up past 7:00 AM this morning! It was actually at 7:04 but hey, I’ll take it.
The best part about waking up after the sun? Natural lighting

If you’re a regular around here at Itty Bits, you’ve probably picked up on the fact that I tend to wake up at insane hours. I’m talking the occasional 4:30 AM, MAYBE even 4:15.
The funny part is that I haven’t always had such a dysfunctional body clock. My freshman year of college I remember having a semi-normal “college student” schedule– heading to sleep around 2:00- 3:00 AM, and waking up around 11:00 AM or noon.
As soon as I moved off campus and into an apartment, my sleeping habits immediately reversed. Now if I want to stay up past 11:00 PM, I need to make a conscious effort to ensure that I’m well-rested and ready to keep myself awake. With early bed times, came the earlier wake up calls. A vicious cycle, eh? Waking up early does give me the extra morning time to get things done though, and I usually am more awake towards the earlier part of my day, so that’s a good thing
A bit to think about: Your turn– What time do you usually wake up? Do you have a dysfunctional sleep schedule sometimes like I do?
