morning

Morning has broken; Zack climbs on me, announces it is 6:57. His tone implies he finds my ridiculous behavior - recumbent in the dark - appalling.

I pull him in closer.

Thoughts form, free fall: unfinished Christmas cards, my messy house, dinner & dates with Jen & Stephanie, Juno - oh please go see Juno - journals and lotions and the book I'm reading...

Inches above me, Zack implores me to get up. My nose recalls the cold I'm kicking to the curb.

Lexi walks in and buys me a few more minutes. Soon I'll roll out of bed and pour the coffee and the day will unfold.

But some mornings it's hard to get up when the staying down was working quite nicely for me, thank you.

Well you're up earlier than I was :)

And you mentioning 'lotion' right after Juno makes me chuckle & cringe a litte, remembering the little note she wrote in Paulie's yearbook...

Have a lovely Saturday! I promise St. Cupcake next time!

I remember those Saturday mornings when I would cling to my pillow, mentally willing my kids to go away and let me catch just a couple of more zzz's. I won't mention that I woke up at 10:00--there are a few advantages to having teens.

Can't wait to see Juno. My daughter and I are going to see Margot at the Wedding this afternoon.

So evocative. I long for a dark, sleepy late morning. But you know, when it comes? I fear I just might regret that there is no small voice waking me.

Really liked this one.

LOVED Juno. LOOOOVED it.

Goodness...that was practically poetry, Lisa. You take the mundane and just make it sparkle somehow.

Girl....this post is so "me too!" I hate when the Doodlebug decides to wake up before I'm ready to. I just wish I could sleep in!

Isn't it great when they're just a little older and you can get out of bed at 6:58! Ha!

I've been hearing a lot about JUNO and am particularly interested in it, as I'm an adoptive mother - as you know. Personally, I'm just jealous that you've gotten out with a girlfriend to see a movie. Period.

I have been dragging too. But, it does sound like a beautiful morning,... still. SusieJ
