Up and At 'Em

I'm not a natural morning person.  If it were up to me I'd be in bed until about 8:00 and later on weekends.  But, being a mother of three forces you out of bed with the roosters.  Especially when one of your children is a very early riser.  

Henry got up this morning at 5:15.  On the plus side, he only got up once last night, at 11:30, and it was clear I hadn't dressed him well enough so a quick change and then he slept until the ungodly hour of 5:15.  Up and at 'em, boys!

But it sure gives me a leisurely morning.  I get a shower before the craziness starts, I get lunches made, I get breakfast ready and I can even have some tea or my own breakfast.  On some mornings, the dishwasher is even unloaded.  (Not today.)

Or blog!  (I can't guarantee that I'll be coherent though.)

So, that's one in the plus column for this morning.

Another tick mark is that one of our Brownies, who is the age to move up to Guides for next year, is planning on doing so.  That makes me very happy.  I didn't know if she would but she's "super keen" I'm told and that is a huge testament to the Brownie program we've run this year.  I'm really pleased for her and what this will hopefully mean for her for the coming years.

And another tick mark (Brownie-related again) is that it looks like I've found another Guider to join us next year taking the pressure off if one of us is sick, and taking some of the work off our hands.  Huge tick mark!

As I said to John, everything is coming up Karen!

What's going well for you today?

Of course, I also know that this weather is fleeting and might choose to spend it on the deck instead!

Oh how I wish I was a morning person. Happy to hear everything is coming up Karen.
