I hate waking up in the dark. I just cannot wake myself up, despite a lot of coffee, it just somehow feels wrong. Consequently, this makes it difficult to be “chipper” and wake up the rest of the house. “Yes, I’m an idiot wandering around in the dark, you should arise from your nice warm bed and join me”.

I know people that are disturbed when it’s about 4:30 in the morning during the summer and the sun is shining especially when it shines directly into our bedroom window. I don’t. I wold rather wake up super-early to sun than wake up later in the darkness. Luckily, days are getting longer once again and the sun is just about rising when I get up in the morning to wake up the boys for school. Morning daylight is a good thing.
