Daddy has left the building...

He headed out this morning, but not before getting me out of bed (or should I say, couch) a full 25 minutes BEFORE I usually get up. Arrgh. Although I'm not much of a morning person, I manage to become a civil person by the time I have to be anywhere in public. Unfortunately, he kept bothering me to "get up" or "up and at 'em" which just infuriated me. As I stubbornly remained on my couch trying to get some more sleep, it occurred to me that we are extremely different people. He pops up out of bed at the crack ass of dawn and I drag myself from my blackout-curtained room. He wants to go for a "brisk" walk and I am lucky to bathe myself. He feels like you are "wastin' daylight" by remaining in bed and I feel like you are wasting your God-given right to remain in bed as long as possible. Oh well, it was still a good visit. We visited with several of my friends, had some nice meals and generally hung out together. We also avoided discussing politics, which is good because we very different feelings about a lot of things and nothing productive comes from our bickering.

I'm on your side. What's so great about daylight? (except when you want to get a tan)

dads can be difficult.
maybe the difference is age related....he feels as though he might only have a few select good days left while you feel life is endless

I'm actually contemplating breaking out the sewing machine this weekend. It's only taken me a year of living in this room to realize I don't have to deal w/ all the light 4 windows bring with them (gotta love a corner room) and that curtains were invented for a reason. Project for the week - find a thick fabric I can remotely sew with limited skill and create a nice, cozy cave.

Katie, you have a sewing machine? I have one, but I don't know how to use it.
