Just Waiting for the Sun to Come Up

I managed to get an additional hour of sleep last night vs. the night before. I slept for a full 3 hours. Woohoo. I felt pretty good when I woke up this morning so I will stay up and get my notifications somewhat sorted out and work toward catching them up. I'm not sure the sun will even come up this morning. We have a 90% chance of rain today and another big system will be coming through soon. I will take advantage of having my internet up and working while I can and grab a nap later when it goes out. So far that is the plan for the day. I'll be doing all my outdoor chores as weather permits and in between downpours. All of this early morning stuff is new to me, as I have never been a morning person before. Back in the day when I was working, the Director of our institute always got up at 2 am to 4 am every morning. I can now relate to that. <LOL> Hope you all have a wonderful day.

I slept pretty good last night but was greeted by stinky weather this morning.

We are waiting on the next band of storms to arrive. I hate this kind of weather. You can't plan on going anywhere with flooding and/or bad weather.

@Gillygirl Same here, rain and thunder and internet going out randomly and coming back. I'm about to just sign off and go back to bed. We got some hail yesterday morning. Hoping to don't lose electricity again today.

I'm usually up all night too. I have a doctor's appointment today so I might try and sleep a little. Other than that I'm up writing on my blog.

Welcome to morning. Rain here today also. I'm not going to see the sun at all today. I hope you have a great day, despite the rain.

We had a very wet day with 8 inches of rain here. The bad part is rain today, Sat and Sun. Monday and Tuesday are supposed to be nice. I'm ready for Monday now.

Hopefully you get a break in rain soon, where do you live? I used to work nights so I am only used to about 4 hrs of sleep a night as I have to get up in the mornings after being up half the night. Good luck with that!

@cintol LA -- Louisiana; not Los Angeles. It's only about 1.5 to 2.5 hours to either one of the three of mine. You are much farther away to your kids than I am. I am hoping to make it to CO one of these days. I have never been further than the middle of Texas west.

@simone10 This has started here with hubby's strange hours after surgery. He spent most nights up in pain before and right after surgery and I think it has become a habit for him. It's going to be very interesting when he goes back to work.

I hope you have a wonderful day. Not much can be done outside here, as we have been getting lots of rain. That will have to wait for another day. I am just sitting here at my computer until my load of towels gets done than I will fold them and move on to the next load.

We have been getting way too much rain here. Yesterday was 8 inches. Not as much this morning but still a couple of inches. More rain hits later this evening which promises to be another washout. And more on Saturday and Sunday.

I used to when in a regular routine. I think since my husband's surgery in February and all the whacky hours, that my body is not confused. I used to wake up at 7:30 to 8:00 every morning on my own. But then again I wasn't staying up late.

You do get an early start to your day! It is very cloudy here and the ground is soggy from so much rain.

We have a very saturated ground. We got 8 inches yesterday with the ground already soft. More rain today, Saturday and Sunday. Then two days of dry weather and rain back for Wednesday through Friday of next week. We are looking at two rivers flooding in Louisiana, the Amite River and Comite River. It's not looking very good for that area.

@kareng Oh, I am so sorry this is happening. I do have what looks like a pond in my backyard due to all the rain we had over a 5 day period. Stay safe, my friend.

I am glad you got a good night's sleep. I am beginning to think I have a new routine here. Going to bed around 1 to 2 am in the morning and up at 3-4 am. Nap at 8 to 10 till 10 or 11. Crazy!!

@kareng Some people do better with a split sleeping pattern. I seldom go to sleep begore midnight. But then I will sleep until between 7 to 9 in the morning.

I woke up at 5.40 am in the morning 5 minutes earlier to my alarm. The weather is hot here so no energy to do any work. Now it is going to get 3 pm here and I am sleepy in office. I am really wishing some rain, can you send it from there?

Same here! We got 8 inches yesterday, several inches today and more rain Saturday and Sunday. Monday and Tuesday it is supposed to be dry with rain back Wed-Friday. I can't complain about the temperatures though. We are in 60's at night and 70's and 80's during the day.

Stay down or stay out? I want it to stay out and shine for about two weeks straight. It's going to take that long to dry out here.
