lazy mornings

I love my lazy mornings.

It's not that I sleep in all that long. No. I actually am not good at sleeping, no matter how crappy I feel.

So even when I don't feel well, I wake up. But when I don't have to immediately jump in the shower and dress in collared shirts and constricting pants, and then douse myself in the cold outside... well, the morning suddenly becomes all the much more bearable.

Waking up and checking email before I'm even dressed. Tea. More email. Brush my teeth, wash my face. Jogging pants and a t-shirt. And work. Without the stress of public transportation and ringing phones and meetings.

I was talking to a table full of people on Tuesday at a Wired Woman event about working from home. They love it. And really, what's the need to be IN the office, when much of my work is done via web-based content management systems and web-based email?

And so instead I have my lazy-feeling morning, listening to music as I type.

OK, so I don't my Starbucks beside me (oh, woe is me!) but I will make do and take naps as needed.
