Wake up!

Hey! do you know what time it is? It's 9:30. Do you know where I am? I'm at work. :O Shocking isn't it? Know whats even better? I even had enough time to stop on the way in an grab a booster juice at the mall :)

This morning I woke up and looked out the window at the formless dull grey sky and thought to myself "Huh, what a nice morning". As I got up my second alarm went off. For those of you who don't know me I have three alarm clocks to make sure I wake up in the morning (technically 4 if you include the emergency alarm in case I get up only to fall asleep in my desk chair). For me to be awake before the third alarm goes off is rare. For me to be awake before the second is unprecedented. Even better, not just barely conscious but truly awake, with full sentence thoughts and everything. :)

Two days ago I finally bought one of those light therapy devices I've been eyeing for the last five years or so. I have it configured to turn on 5 minutes before my first alarm goes off. It shines at the side of my bed and the blue light bounces off the ceiling as well. My ceiling is completely lit up with what appears to be a morning sky, it's quite pretty. The light at my side is bright enough I can see it even with my eyes closed as long as I'm facing in that direction.

It was so nice not to have to drag myself out of bed at the last minute. It's only been two days so far but I'm really hoping this will be the case every morning :)
