My wife has the 5 a.m. shift today, she got up at 3:30 in the morning, and I thought “y’know what?”
I’m consequently about 90 minutes ahead of schedule, which is cool. Best time yet for a 5k on the rowing machine, astoundingly, given that I got on there at about 3:45 a.m.
And now it’s just after five, I’m dressed, have coffee, am doing this, and honestly thinking this kind of rocks. I feel good! Maybe it’s the novelty of the thing. But I feel like I could become night owl from the wrong end… morning creep until I’m getting up at hours when the night people go to sleep.
A big volunteer weekend coming up: rebuilding the local canoe club’s website in WordPress from the ground up. It’s exciting!
We’ll see how I’m doing tonight; the general logic here is that I’ll be as tired as my wife, so we’ll be synced up and it won’t be a weird “I’m going to bed early while my husband stays up late” thing. I have the radio show tomorrow so a reasonably early start regardless.
