The Little Voice

This new job finds me working deep in the heart of Monkeytown. The only problem with that is I don't really live all that close to the gooey center of our nation's capital. It requires something of a commute. Which, in turn, forces me to be quite the early riser because the gridlock on the roads around here is second only to the gridlock in congress. And of course that triggers all kinds of nasty things like alarm clocks that go off in the dark, excessive amounts of coffee and communicating primarily by sneer. But, hey, we all have our crosses.

I went to bed at 9:00 last night. See, night before last, a little voice told me to stay up and enjoy the remains of the weekend. Like an idiot I listened to that little voice and while what he said had merit, it was not very bright. I woke up exhausted yesterday morning and only got more exhausted as the day went by. That's why I was asleep before either of my children.

Sometimes that little voice has a lot of insightful, wise things to say. Sometimes it lies.

Excuse me. I need more coffee.

I get up at 5:25 every day, or any day that I commute, which is most. I absolutely can not go to bed prior to 11 PM, and even then I have to read for 15 minutes to settle the brain down before trying to sleep.

I can't decide if this is a bug or a feature in my life.
