As you know, the Evil Twin took last week off work for vacation, but we didn't go anywhere. He used his time mostly to do work around the house and yard that needed attention.

I considered it kinda like my vacation, too, but I also got caught up with housework. At any rate, it was an opportunity for us to sleep in a bit - at least until Sissy woke up, that is - which is anywhere from 7:30 to 8 am.

The alarm normally goes off at 6am, so even just an hour or so is a treat for us.

I, however, woke up at 6:15 on the dot just about every morning. I would drift back into slumber land shortly thereafter, but it was annoying waking up that early.

I guess my internal alarm clock was making sure the Evil Twin wouldn't oversleep on a work day.

I've always been that way. I'm also a champion napper. In my head, I can tell myself "Wake up in 20 minutes". I may go a few minutes earlier or later, but it works out for me most of the time.

Aside from my early morning "wake ups", we had a good week and accomplished lots of little things. And a few big things, too. The yard looks great (Thanks, Evil Twin!). We have a double lot, so it's a chore to keep up with everything.

Now, we're back to the old grind... And, another busy week ahead for me. :-)


  1. I have an internal alarm clock as well. I'm like Cosmo Kramer. Cheers ETW!!

  2. My internal alarm clock is broken... yay for getting all the yard work done!

  3. Can't get my internal alarm off daylight savings. I'm living in the wrong time zone. So, if I where living in California, I would at work at 6 in the morning instead of 9.

  4. I do not set an alarm. The one time I set one recently, I was to get up at 4 a.m. to be at the polling location on election day. It didn't go off and if a friend hadn't called, I'd not have been there on time.

    I think my sub-conscious relaxed thinking I had an alarm set.

  5. I have no internal alarm, because that would require me sleeping...

  6. 6am? that might kill me.

    my alarm goes off at 7 and its pretty much a war to get me up.
