Wake Up, Idiot

Picture this, three adults, one kid and three dogs living together in a house. The adults all have jobs. How come one can not seem to get up on time? They all have to be up early. Two women and a man, guess which one can never seem to get up on time.I know there are people who sleep heavily. But the man, who happens to be my son, just can not seem to wake up on time. He has an alarm clock and a bed-mate. Somehow he always has a problem getting up. Ok, let's assume he dogs barking dont wake him. Neither does the child. So, he either forgets to set the alarm or doesnt hear it. This brings up an obvious question. Does the bed-mate not hear the alarm, either. Or is she just as irresponsible? Maybe the early morning noises of people and animals dont seem to reach his ears. So the alarm clock and the bed-mate dont seem to help. Of course it would also help if he would remember to set the alarm clock. What next? What will it take? He's already been in trouble with his boss. Let's face it, living in Houston ya gotta get on the road early or you're behind all day. But, nothing seems to wake him up. Hey, wake up, idiot!

He probably can get up early if there is something he wants to do, say hunting or fishing.

Maybe he needs to re-think his life and find a pleasurable goal for the mornings.

His own business, or classes that he wants to take maybe?

My husband rarely gets up on time. We both have seperate alarms & I hear both. I even hear my daughter's down the hall. I think it's something in the genes? But then that doesn't explain why the bedmate doesn't hear it. Hmmmmmm.........

Consider him lucky that he CAN sleep! I spend all night tossing and turning while my better half snores herself through the small hours...the only time I really feel I am about to fall into a sleep is 5 minutes before the alarm goes off. Grrr
