My eyes popped open this morning at 5:13 a.m.. Not that this should surprise me, really since during the week my alarm is set for 5:00 a.m.. In theory, I slept in today! The conundrum arose at 5:18 a.m. when my eye lids were still open. To stay in bed and “rest” with the hopes of falling asleep again for another hour or two, or get up and start the day off with a cup of coffee and a little quiet time… oh, and make soup stock….which to choose? The absolute latest I would be permitted to sleep, barring any other noise, distraction, or eyelid popping, would be 7:15 a.m.. I have a professional meeting to attend this morning that begins at 9:00 a.m. with registration beginning at 8:15 a.m. with coffee/breakfast. Sleep/’rest’ OR get out of bed?
