Day 187

A few weeks ago, despite the cameras, sensors, and other features on our truck to prevent drivers from backing into things, I backed into a tree with our truck. Rather than getting with a rental car (even though insurance would cover it), Richard and I decided we'd make the one car life work. Tomorrow will make two weeks since we dropped the truck off, and I think we're close to the end of the road on this repair. Fortunately, we are both pretty flexible, so we've been able to accommodate each other's schedules while sharing a car, and we have actually enjoyed the time spent driving to and from work together. I am not sure every couple that is not used to sharing a vehicle would be able to say the same in our situation.

The first week, Richard was off of work and could drive me whenever I needed to go somewhere. For the past week, however, Richard has been working from 6 am to 6 pm, which is why I have been waking up at 5:30 every day. It's been a bit of an adjustment, especially on nights when I stay up past midnight, but I am starting to think there's a small possibility that I could someday become kind of a morning person. While it is not likely, there is a chance. Then again, I didn't think I would ever be a runner either.

Now that Richard is starting a week of no work, I am looking forward to sleeping at least until the sun comes up tomorrow. We're predicted to have rain most of the day which should also help with the sleeping bit (not that I've ever needed assistance in that area).

The week is off to a good start!

Something that made today great: I went to an informative workshop through LSU's Graduate School today and learned some good information about metacognition.
Time I woke up: 5:30 am
