Old Habits Die Hard

So, I was in that state half awake half asleep this morning as was a bit disoriented. In my dream state, I was thinking "I'm late, gonna miss my regular train to w*rk." I was all ready to spring out of my bed and take a quick shower when then I realized, "Hey, I'm retired. Have been for several years already!" Then the calm came across me.

Old habits die hard.

I have 5 alarm clocks that get me up every morning. All 4 legged.

It's great, isn't it?

I have been using a CD alarm clock with delightful morning birdsongs to awaken me, lately, because I was tired of sleeping so late. This morning, for the first time, I hit the "snooze" button. Wasn't even sure which one it was. Then I accidently hit it again and by that time, had no idea how long the snooze period was. Can you imagine that? Being confused by the "snooze" button? Retirement is great.

Got bored after 20 minutes and got up before the snooze delay expired.

I love sleeping to when ever also. I just love when I talk to my friends and they say they love their jobs. Yeah right!
