I woke up at 4:30 this morning. I tried to go back to sleep but I knew it was pointless so at quarter to 5 I accepted the fact I was not on EST time yet and began my day. I sent out a few text messages, a tweet and a post, just so people would know I was up early (“You were up HOW early?” and “Why on earth were you awake at 4??).
It was so great getting everything accomplished before the work day started! I did my laundry, cleaned my apartment, and walked to the ATM, CVS, dry cleaners and Panera Bread for breakfast all before 9:30am. Pretty impressive.
As you can imagine, I am exhausted now, and after How I Met Your Mother I will be heading to bed and hopefully not waking up until 8. Wish me luck! Today’s picture is of the fountain in Dupont Circle, a block from where I live. When you wake up early, you get to see the sunrise, something I usually miss out on. I noticed the bright morning light over Massachusetts Avenue as I was hustling over to CVS and made a point to take the long way just so I could get a better look.
I had never read the words inscribed on the Dupont Circle fountain before, and I like how the text captured in my photo frame says “The United States.” I’m home!
