On being a morning person (or not) and making the best out of every day

 This blog has been seriously abandoned over the last few weeks.  
To be honest, I've been in a bit of a funk lately, which has kept me from bringing my best here, which is what I like to do.

 Tonight on the phone my best friend said, "Can you please put something new on your blog?"  
Since I love her, and I'm on a study break from quizzing Ryan on medical terminology and trauma assessment, that's what I'm doing.

Plus, I happen to love this little blog and the way it has kept me in touch with family, old friends, and new friends.

 My new schedule has been... an adjustment.

I am not what you call a "morning person."  Far from it.  
I must hit snooze at least three times every morning and require a good twenty minutes without talking (or being spoken to) before fully waking up, even once I'm out of bed.
 I also need at least eight solid hours of sleep.  If I get less than that, I am not 
(how should I put this?) at my best.
I am also a night owl.
Before I moving in with Ryan four years ago, I would spend most evenings up past midnight, sleeping in until ten the next day if I could get away with it.  
Unfortunately that schedule doesn't jive with most jobs... and after living in a one room apartment in Korea where Ryan and I were forced to go lights out at the same time, I have learned to push bedtime to a more reasonable hour, making mornings easier as well.

So I've been going to bed early, getting up early, working long days, and spending lots of time with family and friends, which has been great, but has left me little time for much else.  

There are lots of posts to come though, with updates and recaps on our March travels to New Jersey and New York, and photos of what we've been up to lately back in P-Town.  It's been mostly good, and that's what I need to remember.  A funk only exists if you let it. (:

And my sweet husband texted me something this morning that I love.

"Make the best out of today and every day"

Will do, honey. 

Thank you.
