It is Saturday morning at 7:49 AM. I'm sitting here enjoying a quiet house as I listen to the soothing pitter-patter of rain on the roof. Today the Jr. High kids at church are going on the Mystery Road Trip and so I was at church at 7 o'clock this morning to help collect money and permission slips from the parents/kids. Yes it was early but I really don't mind. As long as I've gotten enough sleep I love getting up early. I love getting a good start to my day and I'm actually more alert and awake than when I sleep in late. I tend to be kind of sluggish when I sleep until 9 or 10. So all of this to say that I'm looking forward to a productive day. Since both of my brothers will be gone until 9 tonight (a whole day without hearing them argue, YEAH!!!) that leaves my mom and I here at home, at least until Dad gets back from work. We're going to go for lunch and spend some time together scrapbooking. We used to do things together frequently but now our time together is precious. In 15 short months I'll be in college, possibly away from home, so I treasure time with my Mom more than I did a year ago!!
