30 days to success: 1 week later

Last week I said I was going to start going to bed early, waking up early, and change my e-mail and forum habits. I also said I’d post on Monday’s about how I was doing with it. Well now that it’s Tuesday I figured I might want to do that.

Overall it’s going very well, considering how hard it has always been for me to wake up early. I must admit though that going to bed early really makes it a lot easier. What a concept!

Wednesday ended up getting messed up. The reason for this being that one of the local lindy hoppers (swing dancers) was assigned to go to Iraq on Saturday. He was originally going to go in a few weeks and we were planning a going away dance for him. So when his leave date was moved up suddenly so was the going away dance. So I drove an hour and a half to dance for about the same amount of time and then drive home again. I got home at 1 AM. I was so tired. I don’t think I managed to get up on time, but I don’t remember what time it was anymore that I actually got up.

I also stayed up late Saturday watching a movie* and slept in a little later on Sunday morning. That was my own fault though, with no excuses.

I think I’m doing pretty good so far.

* Don’t ever rent “Westender”. My friend and I rented it, only to stop it after 15 minutes. We then watched “Regarding Henry” with Harrison Ford. That was pretty good.
