My mind feels fuzzy. It's early. Too early. What woke me? The light? Maybe. Maybe something else. I don't know. I don't want to open my eyes. I'm still tired. When is the last time I woke up feeling refreshed? Before kids. Oh right, kids. That's probably what woke me up. Should I open my eyes? Maybe just a little to see who is on the bed with me. I've got to be careful though. If they catch me, I'll have no choice but to get up. I'm just going to lay her for another minute. I'm nice and warm in my cocoon, but I know that right outside my warm shell the covers are crisp and cool. The slight chill is waiting for me to break through the thin wall of heat so that it can help reality take me. How long have I been alone? His side isn't warm anymore, he must have ushered the kids out of the room long ago. How long have I been asleep? Minutes? Hours? Maybe I should get up and help him. Have they already eaten? No, definitely not, they wouldn't be screaming if they had plump bellies. Ok, they aren't leaving, their intent is clear. They are taking hostages. Alive. I'm going to peek. Very. Slowly.
They didn't see me, but It's worse than I thought. They aren't even dressed. It is possible that I was caught in the crazy vacuum of morning awakening and what seemed like hours was merely seconds. This is bad, very bad. It is totally a lose-lose situation. If it is later than I'm expecting and I got in some extra sleep, it means the children are going to be ravenous. If they children aren't eating the sheets off of the bed, it suggests that it is painfully early and I didn't get as much sleep as I was hoping to get. I guess I'll give it another look.
Oh. Well that wasn't so bad. Actually it was rather pleasant. Tea was laughing and shaking her head - I caught a glimpse of the corner of her mouth; turned up in her cheesy grin. And Brie! Definitely a positive disposition. And hubs? I'm sure if he saw me he would have grinned as well. One thing is for certain, the light is amazing. It must be overcast. I should get some pictures of the view before we check-out. And the kids jumping on this big bed. And maybe some of them squirming while I'm trying to get their clothes on. And of hubs as he cleans up for breakfast. Oh, and I wanted to get that one of us waiting for the elevator, that light was cool...
Looks like the start to the perfect day.
"It's Mommy! Mommy is up! Hi Mommy! Good Morning! Good Morning, Mommy!!"
