This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, but I don't function well when my work day starts at 6:30 AM. Today is the second time in the past four work days that I have had the disgruntlement of an awesome parking place in exchange for seeing my desk before the sun was past the horizon. The next couple of weeks won't be quite so terrible, as my meetings will start at 7:30 instead of 7. Why doesn't that give me comfort?

The worst part this morning was walking across the street, cold and shivering, thinking about how much worse it will be for our December faculty meeting, also scheduled for 7 AM, toward the end of the month. I'm pre-miserable in anticipation.

I hope you get to leave plenty early though. That would be cool.

Yeah, doctors and the medical field are just enamored of getting an early start. Ick.

But at least you got the parking space.

TC - most of my docs hate it as much as I do, but it's the only time you can get a group of them in the same place at the same time.

I'm debating leaving early today versus banking it and leaving early on Friday, when hubby is off and will be home all day. I dunno.

I love, love coming in early. I'd do it every day if I could. (but can't because of having to take kiddo to school)

BUT the school is closed all next week so I plan on coming in between 5:30 - 6:30 EVERY morning next (so I can leave early each day).

I'm such a freak.

SM - my dad's the same way. Definitely a freak. But I envy the ability. My world would run much smoother if I had a few more hours of coherent morning time.
