On a weekday, I usually get up around 6:30 a.m., but I set my alarm to go off at 6:20 so that I can hit the snooze button to sleep another 10 minutes.  My roommate thinks I’m crazy, but doing this in the mornings actually helps me wake up.  I’m a night owl, not an early bird like she is, so I need an extra few minutes to get going in the morning.

One reason it’s so hard to get up is because my bedroom and my bed are so comfortable.  I splurged and bought a bed with a very soft, thick mattress.  I also have matching sheets and pillowcases, and a comforter that is made of goose down.  Even my nightstand matches my sheets and the rest of my bedroom.  I decorated it so that it would be restful after a busy day at work.

When I get up, the first thing I do is put on my robe.  It’s always so cold in the apartment in the mornings, no matter what time of year it is.  Then, I usually make my bed.  I hated making my bed when I was little, but now it’s become a routine.  Sometimes, though, I’m so tired that I sleep in for just a little too long and then, the bed definitely doesn’t get made.  On those days, I wish I could sleep in all day!
