This morning ended my very long vacation and also school was back in session. Stepping outside to take Alyssa to school, we were hit with an icy cold wind. I don’t know how people live in below zero temperatures! I had on pants, shirt, sweats jacket with hood, mid-calf length down coat with hood, mittens and a scarf wrapped around my face. I looked like the abominable snowman and the cold wind still took my breath away.
In the car we were both quiet. Our body clocks are not set to be up early in the morning. We do best staying up until 3:00 a.m. and sleeping until 9:00 a.m., but since money doesn’t grow on trees and neither does an education, we both have to get up. It wouldn’t have been so bad this morning except that for two weeks we have been on “our” schedule which meant that last night we did not get our beauty sleep. I actually had several people comment on my bloodshot eye today. Oh yeah, I was gorgeous.
So imagine us both totally bundled yet still cold, donned with our makeup, sitting in a cold vehicle, traveling to school very quietly. Then we both see it at the same time…the moon.
The moon was shining very bright and white directly in front of us.
How can that be? We are expected to be performing at top speed now…with the moon shining…after 2 1/2 hours sleep?
That’s when I decided that there should be an 11th Commandment.
“Thou shalt not get up before the moon has completely disappeared from sight.”
Alyssa agrees with me.
We think it should be against the law to leave your house that early to go to work or school when the moon is still hanging in the sky.
Don’t you think that is a great idea?
