I am a morning person just for the record. I love everything about mornings, the smells, the silence, the peacful tranquility that exists as the sun comes up waiting for the rest of the world to join in. Once I'm awake I'm awake no matter how tired or exhausted I may be. Right now though I am TIRED I would love nothing more then to take a very long nap and wake up when my body is good and ready and then stay in bed for an hour or two longer just because, stretching all the while and just resting, not when my alarm goes off at 5:15 am! URRRRRRGGGGGGGGGG
