isn't it funny

I am not a self-professed "morning person". I imagine that "morning people" jump eagerly out of bed, anxious to start the day in the wee small hours of the morning. Not I. I prefer to sleep until my body wakes itself up (which these days is no later than 8:30, unless I'm sick). When I do get out of bed though, all it really takes is a shower for me to be up, chatty, and ready to go for my day. Dear Husband Of Mine is in NO WAY a morning person. He wakes up slowly, not talking much until 9:00 or 10:00 if he can help it. He just *loves* my talkative morning persona - when I asked him if it was endearing or irritating, he replied, "I take the 5th." How diplomatic of him.
This morning, I woke up in a really good mood. I've often wondered what it is that makes that happen. Why do I wake up some days, wanting to steamroll anyone and anything that deigns to get in my way or ask something of me? Why do I wake up other days practically grinning - almost irritating myself with my own dad-gum cheeriness?
I have no answers - but I do know that the snow is melting (for the 87th time since last week) and the sun is shining and WeatherBug says it's going to be 45 whole big fat degrees outside tomorrow! In Michigan, spring isn't really reliably "here" until it's officially summer... but I do enjoy these glimpses.
Got a semi-relaxing weekend coming up, and it looks like Mark may be gone tomorrow night and all day Saturday - any ideas what I can do to keep myself busy?

I can't remember if you've done this recently, but I recommend a spa night. Find some do-it-yourself recipes for masks and exfoliants on the internet, get some chick flicks, and lots of chocolate! :) :)

Come on over to our house and play a little Settlers. Seriously... give me a call if that sounds like an option you may want to pursue.
