Challenge, Early to Rise Challenge

Early to Rise for all!


Ok so I am really really enjoying my early mornings… Things are changing a little with how my time will be spent and today David through me a curve ball ( a little more about that in a bit!)

Kevin’s start time at work changed just a bit this week from 6:00am to 6:30 am… However we still got up together at the same time as usual.  All weekend Kevin was up with me before I left too which was nice as I was able to make out bed before work and just having that one thing done is so nice!

So here is my screen shot!

As you can see from the time of it I forgot to snap one when I first got up… I was up at 4:05… by the time I took this I had made Cinnamon Rolls, cleaned up the kitchen, had a shower, changed our sheets, and changed David’s sheets!
David was up early because his diaper leaked… We are using Huggies Overnight diapers and they are leaking several times a week, he is 28 pounds and in a 5… I am going to really try to limit his evening fluids and am looking for other ideas on this problem, if you have any experience PLEASE share what worked for you!
I am not bothered by him being up early today we enjoyed some awesome morning snuggles, but I don’t want him loosing sleep over this!

Early to Rise Challenge… Extra Early!


I was up even earlier than planned.  We had our corned beef dinner last night because I was working this weekend, so I got up extra early and made David’s Daddy his favorite corned beef hash!

Our alarm went off at 4:00 I rolled out of bed at…

This is so much easier this week than it was last, this new approach to things has eliminated a bunch of stress!  I also really enjoyed my time with Kevin this morning and have already gotten so much done.  So the plan is to do this again tomorrow!

I will be finishing a few chores up and getting cleaned up for the day, once David is up we will get him going and then we are gonna head out for the first day of the local Farmers Market!

What time were you up today?

I have no clue why the shot got cut off but oh well! By the time David woke up I had my shower was dressed, made the bed, started some laundry, wrote a few posts, and had my coffee!

Look for my CVS plan for next week, along with a Picture from this week! Also enjoy some time out in this beautiful spring weather today!

Today went smoother but only because the only thing that I need to do is clip and organize coupons, I got all of the housework done yesterday as well as updated the blog!
So tomorrow I will be up early so I can get these coupons under control, and then I will relax some outside with David as we have beautiful SPRING weather here in Texas!Ok now off to a bubble bath with my book! Early to Rise tomorrow!What time were your up today?

Like I said oops! The nice thing about this is it was still dark out so David came back to bed with me for a while and snuggled, I love his early morning snuggles in my bed!

I will say that this is a noticible difference in how our day has gone though, and I know this is because I didn’t have a head start on my day or the chunk of time to myself!

So tomorrow I WILL be up at 5am and on the elliptical while I spend some time talking with David’s Daddy before he heads out the door to work!

However I actually rolled out of bed at 4:01am … By the time I snapped the screen shot I already had French Toast on the Griddle for David’s Daddy!

I have been to the gas station, done the laundry had a shower, unloaded the dishwasher and lots more already now I am just waiting for David to wake up so that we can move on with our day… I need  to make breakfast number 2, and tackle the to do list!

What time did you wake up this morning?

Early to Rise … Enjoy the little moments!

So I woke up about 5am this morning and laid in bed for a while reading my email, and checking in on the blog this morning I was all set to get up at ….

When this sweet little creature… David’s Nana (Nabby)

Crawled  into bed and snuggled up with me, she is so sweet and usually wont snuggle so I gave her the attention that she needed and slept till 7am when David woke up!
From time to time it pays to just enjoy the little moments that we love so much, if David had woke needing me I would have done the same, sometimes it is just not about mom!Tomorrow my goal is 4am I will be up fixin’ David’s Daddy some breakfast!
We will re attempt the Spring Cleaning Challenge starting Monday!
What time did you wake up this morning?

Early to Rise

I have been following along with Money Saving Mom’s Challenge… Early to Rise.
This week I got up at 7:07am on Monday. (not so early … had a long weekend at work)
Tuesday I rolled out of bed at 5:32, and had so much done by the time David woke up!
Today I just couldn’t get started and waited till 6:02… David woke at about 6:45am and wanted to get up and run by 7am so my lesson was learned about waiting to get up… My lesson was learned, and the next time I think of just rolling back over, I will remember how difficult a day can be if I don’t get going before David!
So my goal is to make it up by 5am each day starting tomorrow I will post daily with a screen  shot from my phone to show what time I actually rolled out of bed!

How did your morning go? Where you able to get up on time?
