The Sunday Funnies by Angie Ledbetter

I'm not particularly happy today, being it's the weekend and my husband's alarm clock (which he forgot to turn off last night) woke me at 6:30...again. He's not a light sleeper like me, so when I nudged him to deactivate the alarm, he didn't even fully wake up. Not so with me. So I'm up hours earlier than I had to be and looking for something that inspires gratitude and thankfulness. Grrrrrr!
There are many things on my TBTF (To Be Thankful For) list: the nice supper we shared with friends last night at a little country restaurant beside the Mississippi River levee; my kids are all doing great for the moment; my mom's health is holding steady; my stepdaughter and family are coming back to Ft. Polk in Louisiana soon; the Rose & Thorn Literary e-zine is growing and looking great; and the weather's not its usual sweltering self today. Oh, and I have my literary masters coffee cup filled to the brim with hot delicious coffee. *And here's a wave to Oren and Cathy's son Kyle, who receives his Eagle Scout award today! (See you at the ceremony.)*
If you can't find similar items on your TBTF list today, there's always the Sunday paper cartoon strips to perk a grouchy, sleepy person up. Enjoy one of my favorites -- Scott Adams' Dilbert: http://http//www.dilbert.com/strips/comic/2008-04-02/

Oooh...I am not a fan of alarm clocks, especially ones that wake you on a weekend which is meant for sleeping in and lolling about.
Catch a nap later if you can and enjoy the morning. I'm off to caffeinate.

IT's been so long since I've awoken to an alarm clock -but I remember the days -- ergh.....now, working from home, no alarm! yayy! though I still wake up pretty early.

I love Dilbert!

I do not love waking up earlier than intended.

Unless I wake up earlier than intended and the morning looks particularly lovely and peaceful.

I hope you enjoyed your added hours of daylight. ?? :)
