Please explain once again

why I am awake by 6:45 a.m. and up by 7:10 a.m. on the day that I don't have to leave early and go to work? I just don't get it. Every other day is like waking the dead to get myself up and going to work. Last night I even stayed up late and didn't go to bed until after midnight. Is it just something about getting up 45 minutes earlier? Perhaps I just cannot wake up before a certain time. Maybe it's the alarm clock. Now I'm debating whether I should go back to bed and lay there like a lazy bum or do something productive. I do have some dishes that need to be done and my house could use a little more tidying.
As I was laying in bed this morning pondering whether I should get out of bed I was thinking of that phrase "If you love someone, let them go. If they return to you, it was meant to be. If they don't, their love was never yours to begin with..." I don't know why that popped into my head, but I really think that phrase is baloney. (I would have said something else, but I am still cleaning up my language.) Why on earth do you let someone you love go? Why put them to that test? If you love someone and let them go, then they're going to eventually move on. And is there a time limit as to how long you should wait for them to come back? What if you let someone go, and then a few years later, you move on and get married and then the "supposed" love comes back? Do you then dump your current partner because the other one was meant to be? I think if you love someone, then you should hang on to them despite rough patches and through the low points. I think if you make it through, then perhaps it is meant to be. If you let go during those times, then perhaps it's not and that should be your cue to move on. If you love someone and let them go in hopes that they will come back, then you're a fool. I know sometimes things work out and people reunite with old loves and such, but I think that certainly isn't the norm and truly isn't worth the risk. O.k. that's end of my soap box this morning.

I have a similar problem. I wake up at 4 a.m. almost exactly every morning and can’t go back to sleep. It never fails to happen. I spend most of my time on the computer before having to go to work at 8 a.m. but nobody updates their blogs at such an ungodly hour. I find myself endlessly updating the local National Weather Service forecast page in the hopes that the meteorologists will start a new weather discussion. I know that must sound so sad! lol

You are so right about that phrase. Who ever coined it, should be tarred and feathered. Bet that person made a mint off of those posters in the 70s of a sunset on a beach with that phrase or the one with the birds soaring or the butterfly flying..and on and on. Now it makes me wish I had made it all up. I wake up every single day at 0530. What is up with that?

Yeah, I'm more of a "If you love someone, chain them to the bed if they try to flee" kind of girl...(grin).

I always wake up earlier than I want to on days when I can sleep late but if at all possible, I force myself to go back to sleep so that I can wake up cranky from getting too much rest. Gotta have a system y'know?
