Starting off Right.

For the last ten days or so I've been working on getting into a more organized and disciplined life. I have been going to bed earlier and getting up each day at 6:00am. My original motivation was that the next quarter at work is approaching busy season and so I should be getting some hours for the next month or so, (fingers crossed). After I started getting up the realization occurred to me that this is when I'll be feeding a little person in a short time, yikes!

I've been starting off my days with a bowl of hearty oatmeal. Yum. And a nice cup of tea. It fills me up splendidly right now and once I'm an all consuming breastfeeder it won't be hard to add some fruit to the mix for extra calories. I had totally forgotten how much I love a bowl of warm cereal in the morning. I sit here at my computer and do some blogging/message boarding/surfing while eating my breakfast in the quiet of the morning.

Since it's been ten days I've come to the realization that I do not read enough blogs to have new reading material each morning. I'm okay with that, but it leads me to my 'Question of the Week'. What other sorts of sites, (feel free to leave the addys), do you surf on a regular basis?

Your morning routine sounds so nice! Good for you.

I read the blogs in my link list, I'm a part of two messageboard,Facebook and I periodically check in on sites like, and That's about it for me.

well my dear... I am a tad bit jealous of the fact that you can get up early and have quiet time. My boys get up at 6 am faithfully every day. And I do mean EVERY day. They are never late. Sometimes early though. We do have the occassional 5am wake up call. And it doesn't matter when they go to bed. Their internal alarm still sounds at 6am. And I just can't bring myself to willingly get up any earlier than that!

The pastor's wife blogroll gives me plenty of reading material- more than I can keep up with every day! The link is on my site if you are interested. Its good.
