It's official...

I have turned into my PaPa. (For you non-Texans out there that is pronounced "Paw Paw". It means Grandfather.) :-)

My PaPa would wake up around 4:30 am EVERYDAY. I don't get up until 5:15 am, but by my book that is EARLY. I start off with my Bible Study and then go on about my day. Since I no longer babysit "Angel" my nap time is gone forever. So, I stay busy all day. Unless I fall asleep during the news or Wheel Of Fortune, which PaPa did a lot.

He was usually in bed very early. For the last several weeks I have made it to bed before 10:00 pm. What's worse is I look forward to it. The earlier the better. For me, one who used to stay up until at least midnight (and later most of the time) that is extremely early.

I don't know if this shows that I am getting wiser or older. Both maybe? :-) If I was truly wise I would also be planting a garden for this summer. Unfortunately the only thing I remember PaPa teaching me about gardening is "plant in the evening and always use Miracle Grow." Why, oh why didn't I listen better as a child?

Well, it's 5:00 pm. I better go and eat my dinner so I can fall asleep in front of the TV and get to bed early. Maybe I'll go to bed 8:00 pm this time!! WHEW, I don't know if I can handle all of the excitement! :-)

Love,
Wendy Darling

When you fart when you roll over then you can truly call yourself PaPa.

I try to be in bed by 11pm but I don't get up until 7am. I don't have to be at work until 9am so no way am I getting up at 5am. :P

I would say I didn't know 5:15 came twice a day, but we all know that would be a lie.

Does it count that I used to think about break at 5:15am???
