Morning aches


I feel worse in the morning than I do when I go to bed.  My back aches, my legs hurt, I'm yawning uncontrollably, and yet, it is all I can do to get my body in the vertical position.  Inevitably, I will sit up, think for about 30 seconds, and lay back down.  The pillow feels good, then I sit up again for about 45 seconds.  Forget it, back on the pillow.  Then it takes this unbearable willpower and I sit up, get up, and go thru my morning routine.  Now my eyes are watering.  I have yet to figure out how anyone, especially in their 40s and 50s and older, can get up at 5am and waltz their caboose to the gym for an hour before they shower and go to work.  I'd rather sleep.  I love sleep when I am actually getting it.  Right now, I am obviously not getting my sleep.  Where's some coffee?  Even the noise I have to make with the coffee pot to get it started gives me a headache. 

And what's with the birds at 6am?  We have the loudest dang birds in the whole State.  Every morning at 6am there is this one bird that is louder than the thousand others making a racket right outside our bedroom window.  Of course, my husband can't hear a thing as he is cutting a cord of wood.  I can't figure out who is louder - the bird or my husband?

Okay, I love my birdies outside my window, except when they are trying to get in my window.  We have this Bluebird that is determined to take up residence in our house. "Hello there little birdie...it's a little too early, go back to bed please."
