Nothing good happens after 2 AM.

As a former night owl, I have lots of stories and examples of how true that statement  is.  I have recently come to the conclusion that nothing good happens before 8 am either. 

Whenever possible, I make my first appointment of any day at 10 am.  I’ve done this for so long, I don’t even remember why I chose this time.  I currently have Physical Therapy ( pain and torture, pt, etc) on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10.  I tend to make my parents appointments on Mondays and Wednesdays in case I need to be there with them, and Friday is for last minute “Oh Fucks.” This week however, my parents had their 3 month appointment with the GP at 10:20 am on Tuesday.  Fuck, I have PT at the same time! After some fenagling, I was able to move my appointment to 8 am on the same day instead of 10.  GRRRRR

I went to bed early Monday night, well at least I tried, knowing that I would have to get up at 6 to consume enough coffee before I had to leave at 7:30.  When the alarm went off at 6, I threw the phone across the room to make the god awful noise stop.  I knew I wasn’t going to see the kids or grandkids.  ( About the ONLY reason to get out of bed before the sun) Why the hell would I ever set an alarm for 6 am?   Thankfully, Einstein came in to remind me that I had did have SOMETHING early today.  Fine Fine, I’m moving.

As the coffee began to work its magic, I remembered what I had to do…. Doctors!  I managed to ATTEMPT to leave my house at 7:30.  I say attempt because I couldn’t back out of my driveway without a kid appearing behind me.  Oh School, I remember that!  Shit that means they are trying to catch a bus, which I will no doubt get stuck behind.  Whoops! 

When I finally left my subdivision there were cars everywhere!  Where the hell did all these people come from?  Crap was I going to be late?  Ugh

I did actually make it to PT on time.  I even beat some of the therapists there. In the end, I did survive but I still don’t recommend it. Tomorrow I have to be on the road by 8 am again to drive an hour and a half to meet a new neurologist. Definitely not my first, second or 3rd choice, but considering it took me 3 months to get a damn appointment, I agreed to the horrendous time.

Next week I’m back to 10 o’ clock appointments. 8 o’clock appointments are for the birds!

    1. It’s so good to hear from you! When I was raising my kids, I do remember waking up earlier to have that alone time. Einstein gets up between 5-6 everyday though and there is no way I would go for earlier than that. I have worked ALL of the different shifts when I was working so I have never had good sleeping habits.
