Vacation Day

Here it is 6:30 a.m. and I don't have to go to work today. I suppose many would take the opportunity to sleep in, but not me. I am just one of those people who do not "sleep in". I am up between 4 - 5:00 a.m. every day. I tend to wake earlier when I don't have to go to work. Like today I was up at 4:00 a.m. I LOVE to get up in the morning. Mornings are my energetic time. My mother is the same way. When I hear others talk about how hard it is to get up in the morning, I am very thankful that I inherited this wonderful trait. On the flip side, you will almost never find me awake past 10:00 p.m.

I tell you all of this so that maybe you will understand (and not think it is totally WEIRD) that I have already completed these odd tasks by 6:30 a.m.:

I took everything out of my tupperware-like container cupboard, washed the cupboard out, tossed some items and put the keepers back in nice & tidy.

I have removed everything from this lazy Susan cupboard and washed it all out. I have not put everything back in yet because I want DH to check all the screws and adjust the door.
I have one of those pull-out wastebasket cupboards and have taken it all apart and washed it down with bleach to disinfect it.

All in all I am feeling pretty good because no matter what else I do today (which may be nothing), I have already accomplished a couple of chores.

Oh, guess what I found in the tupperware cupboard?

The Pringles can! Well, actually it's a Lay's potato chip container. I guess when I cleaned the other cupboard, I moved it here and forgot that I did it.

Anyway, I obviously don't need it now, so it got the big toss along with a few other lidless containers.

Now I have the whole rest of the day to do whatever I want! I wonder what I will want to do...............


  1. This has nothing to do with your post, but if you haven't already seen them, check out Carol's gardening-themed Christmas tree ornaments at May Dreams Gardens.

  2. You are so have to know that you are going to need that potato chip container soon....
    Merry Christmas

  3. Nothing wierd about you, I am also an early riser,but I do occasionally sleep in. I have the orange and yellow tupperware bowls too. Don't ya just love how you feel when you have clean cupboards?

  4. I've always been a night owl. It's not unusual if I'm still up at 1-1:30 am. I get up between 9-10 and do most of my chores from 11 to the late afternoon. My mom said I use to turn night into day when I was a baby. And my son is a night owl too.

  5. Kathy, I just went and took a look. How unique are those ornies? WOW. So cute.

    Sharon, I know you are probably so right! LOL.

    Pat, 1974. That's when I got those. Good quality...that tupperware! It was guaranteed for life back then, is it still? I wonder.......I have some cracked lids.........I'd be too embarrassed to go ask for a new lid after 33 years!!!

    Diane, I actually thought of you when I made this post. I know we are exact opposites in that category. You probably do cleaning after 9 p.m.? I'd rather have my toe nails pulled out with tweezers than start to clean after 9:00pm!! Well ............ maybe I'd rather clean...............hee hee.

  6. Wo ! you got alot done. I was on my way to work when you got all that done! I must go do more wrapping!! I'm almost done:)

  7. Okay, Zoey, I now understand how you get so much done in a day. 4 or 5AM?? This is where our universes diverge. I have to force myself to get out of bed at 6:30AM and it's the toughest thing I do all day.

    On the flip side, I can't go to bed early. I aim for midnight and I have to read in bed for awhile first.

    I would say you are lucky to be an early-riser. I can only aspire to it!
