Five A.M.? Really?
Waking up at 5 o'clock in the morning for a night owl is nearly sacrilege. Thankfully, it is not a "work day."
I am not able to lounge around in bed today, napping at will, as I change hotels today to be a bit closer to the training site. I was able to get a "late check-out" time of 12:30 p.m. so I can pack things back up. Check-in at the new hotel is not until 3:00.
My sister comes in for the project tonight. I think there is a hotel shuttle that still runs from the airport when she arrives (10 p.m.), so I am going to suggest that she take it. I am close enough, however, to pick her up if that is not the case. I would like to get some fruit, cheese and crackers to have available when she arrives for a nibble, while we catch up. Tomorrow will be a busy day with phone conference and getting her up to par for the classes here in San Antonio this week.
We both have training sessions at 9:00 a.m. this week, then throughout the day. We each will teach through 11-11:30 p.m. Though only seven classes between the two of us, it will be long days for each of us.
It will be interesting to see how this works out. She is a morning person; I am a night owl.
When she saw the schedule, her words: " Don't they realize I am usually falling asleep on the couch by 8 o'clock? Oh, gawd!"
I hit my stride about that time; so, the last classes at 9:30 or 10:00 p.m. for two hours are like noon in the workday for her. I am the one who looks at being on the podium at 9 a.m. the next day as, "WTH?"
And the hotel arrangement between these two types of individuals? I hope there is a place for privacy, as I will want to write or watch television to wind down. She will be ready for bed, when she hits the room.
At 5:30 a.m., she will likely be up and excited to get to work, turning on the lights, making coffee, and announcing the day.
"Good morning, my sister! Rise and shine!!"
I will roll my eyes (behind closed eyelids), open one eye, look at her and grumble.
"Perky morning people should be shot!"
