For the last two mornings of our school year, I have gotten up at 7am, showered, dressed, eaten, and been ready for the start of school at 8am. And let me tell you friends, it is hard to do.
I realize there are people who get up much earlier than that with great regularity, but HOW DO THEY DO IT??? I am SO not a morning person, sadly I am not a night person either, I’m an afternoon person. We are a much ignored demographic. I am at my best from about 10 am to 3 pm. Those are my hours.
Unfortunately with A attending Scottish Rite Dyslexia Lab school in the afternoon, things really do work better when we get started by 8. The kids are all ready; they are all morning people like their daddy. I am the only not-quite-awake person around here at 8 am.
Let’s take this morning for example, D got up at the horrendous hour of 5 am to get ready for work. He heard on the radio that there was a Lunar eclipse happening right then. He suggested we get ALL 5 kids up and let them go see it. I do believe my head lifted off the pillow and stink eye was given. That’s all I recall. I think he could have told me that he moon had literally turned to cheese and giant rats were nibbling on it and I would not have gotten out of bed.
Now that it is noon, I am disappointed. I am a good homeschooler, I would stop what we are doing and run outside right now and show them. Why do lunar eclipses have to happen while I’m sleeping, doggonit?
Oh well, surely there is a YouTube video out there of the Lunar Eclipse, right?
