In the past, my hubby has jokingly said to me:
I have to wonder. When AM I a person?????
Is there such thing as a mid-afternoon person?
Mornings are just too early for me and I am not cheery. Unless I have to meet you really early. Then it will be a quiet but forced cheerfulness as I figure you probably don't want me growling at you.
DO you? But seriously, if you are the least bit talkative or cheerful I will want to strangle you.....in all good Christian love, of course.
Eventually I will wake up and the smile will be real. However, by that time several hours will have passed and we may even quite possibly be best friends by then.......or not. It depends on how obnoxiously cheery you are.
When the kids were little I had to get used to their energy in the morning and their desire to talk-talk-talk in one long run on sentence and mommy's eyes weren't even open yet. They made my ears hurt.
And that's just one kid.
The noise from two kids in the morning was a lot harder to get used to, but I did it.
I have had jobs where I had to be cheery and bubbly in the morning, or at least not bite anyone's head off, and I did that, too.....but then, they were paying me for it.
But I keep hoping.
By the time night comes I am ready for some peace and quiet. After I let the dogs out for the last time I bring them in, sit them down and tell them "O.k., you're IN for the night. No more messing around. I want it quiet around here." They usually look at me like "Whaaaaat?" Then they ignore me.
Those dogs can get annoying with all that playing and running around and I just want quiet!!!!
This is the kind of disrespect I get from them. She just sticks her tongue out at me.
The older I get, the earlier I want to chill out, not have to do anything, and have some peace and quiet.
The night used to still be "young" at 9 p.m. Now there's nothing young about 9 p.m. Unless it's my kids who are still up and might even be headed out to see a movie with some friends.
So the mornings are too early and the nights are too late.
I am doomed. Unless there's a bunch of mid-afternoon people out there who are up for a movie?
