This is your conscience speaking.
Set your alarm clock right now
LOL - good idea!
I set mine last night and got up at my school day time this morning. I even went to bed at an appropriate time last night.
I still have all of this week, but have stuck fairly close to my usual sleep schedule during the holidays--getting up at 5:00am next Monday won't be too bad.
My cat seems to know that I need to get up earlier again. She started pouncing on me for breakfast at the standard time instead of letting me sleep. She's so much better than an alarm clock, not to mention cuter.
My cat does that too! Quite often I wake up a minute before the alarm goes off because I have a cat breathing into my face.
Haha! I thought of it this morning when I woke up and checked the time on my phone (which I use for my alarm). I turned it on right then....
I am so not ready to go back (mentally)...I am at school right now trying to finish up some planning, and I have the worst ADHD!
Counting today, I have another 8 days or relaxation!
Those that are still on break, enjoy it! We are back today. I remembered to set the alarm, and even got up with it instead of hitting the snooze button.
Oh my goodness Alice! Thank you! I had turned the alarm off and I am sooo thankful you reminded us. I am going to do that right now. Thanks a million!
First couple days off I was up about 15 minutes after my normal time. The last couple of days have been really lazy. I will need my alarm tomorrow.
This was the fastest winter break ever!
It's gonna be hard. I've been sleeping until at least 9 am every day, but starting tomorrow I plan on getting up at 5 to go for a quick run. (before it was ok to get up a 5:45 am).
That 45 minute won't make a huge difference. It's the fact that I'll have to get up before 9
I'm going to set me phone and my alarm clock as before, but also my alarm clock in the bathroom. It is very annoying, and I have to get out of the bed to turn it off
I'm trying to get up earlier to do a quick workout before school. It's going to be rough!
I laugh, I laugh, I laugh.
My older kids get themselves up and they are out the door right about the time I get up. My alarm was set but we forgot to remind them about theirs. Oh boy.
As far as the rest of you go, I also laugh because I couldn't even fall asleep at a decent time or really at all because my internal clock is so out of whack. It's gonna be a long day but I'm sure I will get pumping soon.
We started back today, and the cats made sure I woke up on time. Of course, they make sure I wake up "on time" to feed them regardless of the day... lol. My house operates on KCST (kitty cat standard time).
I'm playing Hanging With Friends with my son, in complete denial that school is tomorrow....hmy:
Tomorrow morning is going to be rough! I slept way later than I planned to today - let's hope I can fall asleep tonight.
I'm so mentally not ready to go back - I had a bunch of grading to do over break that I completely didn't do. I spent so much time with family, I just never got around to it - this week will be hard!
EEEK...and it's going to be 25 degrees when I wake up tomorrow....aaaarrrrgggghhh now that is REALLY going to make me grouchy.
I am going to be in pain this week. I have been staying up way too late and waking up way too late!

It's 5:38 am... I'm up and dressed.
Getting up wasn't as bad as I thought. Now we'll have to see how it feels to work the whole day.
Hope you guys have a good day back today! Today wasn't too bad to get up (day 2). But I still have the feeling that I'd rather be at home.
cza~it was 28 when I got up this morning...high today is supposed to be 57.
the high here is supposed to be 29.
I got up pretty easily once I got moving. That actually getting out of bed part was difficult, but the cat did his job and jumped all over me. I think it is thanks to the new Keurig we got that I managed to wake up. lol.
Cat, as usual, proved better than an alarm clock. She was in my face a good half hour before I really had to wake up. I'd rather wake up to cuddles and purring than the blare of my alarm.
I can't rely on my dog to wake me up...he's like me in that he'd rather just cuddle further into the covers and stay in bed than get up to face the world. :lol:
Woke up to no heat. It was 50 in the house.
MissCelia: Oh, that's not good...hope it's fixed soon. Brrrr.
It was sixteen degrees here this morning. Too cold. Too sudden. Had to wake too early. Had too short a break.
It was a difficult day. :|
The kids were like zombies today-- little motion, no brain functioning. It's going to be a long two weeks getting them to finals...
My alarm went off without any problem, thankfully. Getting myself up and my daughter was another story.
Hope everyone had a great day...I was 'back in the groove' in no time. Got LOTS done today and my kids were awesome.
