The alarm goes off at 5:51 a.m. It takes a moment to register that the annoying voices are coming from the radio and not our dreams. I poke my husband to hit the button.
The alarm goes off at 6:09 a.m. I push or kick my husband to get up. He takes his time getting out of the bed, which annoys me.
The alarm on my iPhone starts quacking at 6:15 a.m. It’s the backup alarm, in case the radio alarm gets turned off in our sleep or the power goes out. I turn it off and snuggle back into the comforter, perhaps cuddling with my son if he has snuck into the bed in the middle of the night again. Which he probably has.
Breakfast? That only comes after we’ve dropped the kiddo at daycare, dropped the husband at the park-and-ride, and taken myself to work. I’m either doomed with cold granola or what passes for toast in less-crisp communities. If I’ve planned ahead I might have a reheated muffin from the freezer stash. Or I’ll have fresh scrambled eggs.
