Derek made an interesting observation today.
As I was getting up to start our day, I said to him that it was time to get up, as we needed to start working. It was 9 am on a Sunday morning and we had things to do (explained in another post later)
Me: “Come on, it used to be you dragging me out of bed, now it’s me dragging you out”
Derek: “Actually, that’s true. And we would have been up an hour ago to start working”
He commented that it’s not something we thought about but things have turned 180 degrees. Now he prefers to stay in bed longer, and isn’t as quick to get up in the morning because he knows there is work to do, and he knows that it is going to make him tired.
It’s the little things that you don’t think about when you have abrupt changes foisted on you.
