Good Morning Bertha

Today is day 2 of the Rise Early challenge.  My goal is to get up at 6 am.  Yesterday it was closer to 6:30.  Today was 6:10.  So I am not there yet, but hopefully tomorrow.  Today's challenge was to name your alarm clock.   He said to stop looking at it as an annoying thing, but as a friend.  So we are to name it and say good morning ______________ each day.  I find this weird, but am committed to the project.  So today my clocks name is Bertha.  That is the first name I thought of.  I don't really think I would be friends with a Bertha.  So if you have a better name for my clock let me know.   Even though Asher got up only minutes after me today, I still accomplished a lot by 9 am.  I chose to stop at 9 because that is normally when we start school.  So before class started I got the following done.

Read the challenge in the book
Did my devotions
Read 2 chapters in the current book I am reading
2 loads of laundry washed and one dry, the other in the dryer
Washed all the dishes from yesterday
Made breakfast
Cleaned up the breakfast mess
Folded 3 loads of laundry and put it away
Checked my email and responsed to messages
Picked up the living room

I was amazed as I typed this at all I got done.  I may not like mornings but seeing this list makes me really want to continue this new habit!
