Mornings seem to drag at this new job.  They start early - 7:30, at which point I'll have already been awake for about two hours, since it takes me about an hour to wake up and get out the door, and an hour to commute downtown by transit.  There are no real breaks - just quick trips to refill a water bottle, or run to the bathroom - until lunch at noon.  It's a focused length of time, but it does seem to drag.
Afternoons are shorter, and somehow seem to go more quickly, hurrying from one thing to the next after returning from lunch, until the day ends at 4:30. 
Lunch is usually spent sitting in the conference room, eating while I read.
Today, I'm hoping the day passes quickly.  I'm ready for a weekend, and a long weekend at that!
The thing I'm looking forward to the most about this weekend?  Staying in bed until at least 11 am tomorrow.  Doesn't matter if I'm sleeping or not.  I'm house sitting for my parents again this weekend, and if I happen to wake up before 11 (which is likely), I'll just lay in bed and watch some television online on my laptop, or read a book.  Other weekend plans include more of the same.  Some cooking and baking.  A bubble bath or two.  Watching a bit of food network.  Doing some reading and writing and grocery shopping to prepare for the following week.  Maybe seeing a movie or two.  But mostly just enjoying a quiet, low key and restful weekend.  Sounds lovely, doesn't it?

Oh yes, it does sound so lovely. :-) Enjoy it!
I can totally understand how exhausting it is to get up that early... I'm not a morning person...
So have a wonderful and relaxing weekend!

I'm not a morning person either, so it's been a challenge!

Thanks! I hope your weekend is lovely as well!
