After two extremely busy, fun-filled days with minimal sleep, I figured I would sleep until 8:00 AM. I even left the dogs downstairs so they would not wake me. However, 5:50 AM found me wide awake. By 6:15 AM, Navi and Chief were whining at the kitchen gate.
There is no prescribed schedule for my Sunday mornings and early afternoon. By 3 PM, I am teaching my senior students who are geared toward music education or music theatre as a career. Thus begins my teaching week, and a full round of breakfasts and lunches with friends to celebrate the birthday week.
It is now 7:41 AM, and the two furry natives are beginning to get a bit restless. I am sure they are eager to hear the little jingle sound as their leashes are pulled from the hook.
I don’t know which is more consistent; my body refusing to allow me more sleep on a free weekend morning, or the dogs always eager to start the day.
