Early bird special

So as some of you may know, I hate waking up in the morning. Hate.  I have always struggled to get out of bed no matter how much sleep I got that night.  My parents used to get so frustrated with me because I was always  rushing out the door, doing my make-up, eating breakfast and whatever else as I sped to class or work.  So waking up for school this semester is no different.  Apparently my dear husband has been getting tired of the morning battle.  Monday morning started out like any other day, me pleading for 10 more minutes and Tony telling me to wake up 50 times.  As I was just about to get up ( Yea right, I was almost asleep again)  I hear this horribly loud angry scream " HEATHER GET OUT OF BED!" Tony was about an inch from my face yelling like I was two blocks away.  I nearly fell out of bed I was so scared.  Needless to say I was in a terrible mood for the rest of the day.

So of course I very kindly explained how I know I am a pain to get out of bed but that is just something he is going to have to deal with and perhaps he could think of a more relaxing, calm, gentle, blissful way to get me out of bed.

I think my talk worked.

So, this morning I woke up to a very different alarm.
I woke up to the soft sound of Celine Deon's Titanic song. haha!  Tony was holding the phone next to me as it played " every night in my dreams...."    " Is this better" ? haha. I couldn't help but laugh hysterically.  I love my silly husband!

ha Heather I laugh at this because I was your roommate and have seen you in the mornings. I also laugh because this is Jeff and me vice versa. He thinks I'm so mean sometimes but I just get frustrated when he won't wake up!!

Oh my I laughed my head off when I read this. So hilarious!! Remember that class we had with the super happy art teacher who wasn't super happy when we walked in late? Which we did often... I think I might have even left you to walk on your own some mornings. Sorry about that! Ha ha! Miss you!

OMG, we are soul mates Heather. In high school, we had this joke that waking me up in the morning was a suicide mission! like I had a sign on my door, WAKE WITH CAUTION! Love it and the Titanic bit!
