There is a new idea going in my life, which is to get up a half hour earlier (meaning 5:15 AM) to do a half-hour of yoga, then a half hour of getting dressed and ready, then a half hour of the little obnoxious tasks that I never get to (either from procrastination or external forces such as my three-year-old daughter).

I only started Monday, and so far have managed to use the half hour to pay my bills, balance my checkbook, fill our some ridiculous forms for my daughter's pre-school.

I guess this weekend will be a dangerous juncture; easy to break a not-yet-formed habit. We'll see.

I am tired! Of course I know why, but I feel very well (and very good!) at the same time. I expect that it will take about a month for my body to adjust to the new schedule.
