Something weird this way came....

(Possibly the worst post title ever?)
Something really weird happened this morning.

I woke up at 7:41, 19 minutes before my alarm was set to go off, and I didn't feel like I was going to die! (When usually I hit the snooze until it is 8:32.)

Not only did I feel actually refreshed and well-rested (what on EARTH?), I actually thought that I could manage to fit in a little bit of exercise before feeding the kids and getting Reed to school....

and even MORE weird? I did. I DID exercise. In the morning. Before everything else needed to happen.

It was nothing short of miraculous, and quite honestly, I can only see this as 1% the result of my recently increased efforts (trying to be better about keeping the house clean, organizing, going to bed at a normal hour, etc.) and 99% heaven smiling down on me.

It had to have been divine intervention, because this doesn't often happen to me.

But it was awesome, really awesome, and it made my day.

(For something that's ALSO awesome and might just make YOUR day, go see what The DI Denizen did with her kitchen!)

Um, okay, you're going to think I'm lying...BUT...I usually get out of bed at 8am..shhhh...I know, it's shameful...BUT this morning I awoke at 6:30...wide awake. For 30 minutes I enjoyed laying there and pondering getting up an hour early and....EXERCISING!! I haven't exercised in maybe a year? Other than dancing in the kitchen which I have counted as my 15 minutes for some time now....BUT then the strangest thing happened...I got up and DID IT! I ran 2 miles on the treadmill this morning. Corben was like, "Oh, you're using that thing again?"...I actually had to take the picture off that has been hanging on it for the last several months LOL. Then I got a shower and everyone dressed in time to get Corben to school on time...I feel SO GOOD!! Lately my home is clean, I feel more organized, my husband is happier, the kids are happier...life is good. Thanks for unknowingly sharing in that this morning with me! :) Luv you!

YAY! That's SO cool, Rae! I love mornings like that!

I feel similarly blessed. Michael has to get up at 6:45 to go to work. The first morning, I didn't even try. But then we realized we'd have more time together, and morning times alone are really precious. SO...
I wake up that early, too. EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK. And I feel blessed because somehow willpower wins over in the morning.
I was sure I'd sleep in this morning when I couldn't even squeeze my eyes open, but then I just thought "Nope, that's not how it goes." And I was up! Just like that! It surprised me.
Hahah... looks like we all three had a similar morning?
Ooh... except I didn't exercise yet. :| Darn.
