The sounds of silence

I went to bed around 9 pm last night, after having fallen asleep at random times yesterday. So I'm up early this morning and couldn't go back to sleep. I threw on a comfy night shirt and lounge pants, brushed my teeth, and came out to my recliner.

Nobody else in the house is awake. Even the kids are still sleeping (if you don't already have blackout blinds in your kid's rooms, RUN to get them now!). All I can hear in the house is the sound of water falling from the aquarium filter into the tank. It's like having a waterfall in the background (and probably means we need to add water to the tank this weekend).

It's so peaceful out here now.

Good morning! I got up before everyone else, too!

Sometimes that's the only way I can think clearly about what I'm supposed to get done during the day. I would've loved to have slept later, but my mind was racing. Ahhh, the life of a mom. :)

We have blackout blinds. Kids woke up at 5:30 a.m. I envy you!

They've pulled the 5:30 thing before, but they know they have to stay in their room until at least 7 so they just sit there and play. The good thing is, sometimes with the blackout blinds they will actually sleep until 8!!!!!
