What’s the best time to wake up on a Saturday morning? And what do you like to do if you could choose? Are you an early riser even though you don' t have to get up at the crack of dawn? Do you sleep til noon and get up ready for lunch? shocked wink Of do you just get up when you wake up, get a hot cup of your favorite morning beverage and a small bite to eat? How would you like your Saturday mornings to ge?

I like to wake up when my body is ready but no later than about 6:30. I have to get meds in me and check blood sugars and take insulin. Otherwise I get everything goofed up for the rest of the day. BUT, then I fix a small breakfast...usually either cereal and milk or toast and coffee...and find my recliner. I turn on the TV quietly and find PBS. At 8AM a lineup of quilting shows start parading through my morning. As long as my coffee stays hot I'll sit right there and stitch while I watch. Most often I have to reheat my coffee but no problem....I have to get rid of some coffee tongue These shows go on until 12:30. I always say I'm going to sit there until the last one but I've never made it yet! Still something to strive for...

What's a perfect Saturday morning like for you?

I used to be an earlier riser 6 or 7 in the morning but when the divorce stuff started and she move out I started sleeping in, which I still do, some, my waking hour vary from 6 AM to 10 AM or later, it all depends on how late I stayed up the night before and what kind of night I had. As we all know on this forum that some nights are better than others, just as the days are! That is a major controling factor on when I get up and also when I go to bed! Saturday Mornings for me are no different than any other morning, what ever time I get up I make my coffee and while it is brewing I check my E-mail and this forum and then I have my cofffee and shower and make my bed. I do like watching the This old house and those type of shows in PBS on Saturday morning, but usually Saturdays is my laundry and house cleaning day, untill recently about a month or so ago I began changing that to Thursday and Friday, so lately Saturdays are just days to relax for me. Chutzie you ought to get one of those coffee cup heaters, I use one it is kind of like a little raised cup holder plate, it has a little switch on the side and a little lite to show that it is on. Anyway you set your cup of coffee on it and it has a heater in it and keeps your coffee cup hot enough to keep your coffee hot to drink. I have had one for years and it is on my stand next to my recliner! I use it every day usally all day long! Anyway for me Sunday is the only day that my wake up time is set, I get up at 6 AM every morning to take my meds, but I usually go back to sleep, but on Sundays, I usually stay up and shower and make my coffee and do all the regular morning stuff, but I go to church every Sunday Morning, and Mass is at 8 AM so Sundays is the different day for me.

I like to be on my back porch no later than 6:00am because of the heat. I have my coffee in hand and usually am waiting on the Zofran to kick in to take the nausea away. I turn my big floor fans on out there and try to wake up with the birds, I leave the singing to them, otherwise I would be ran out of the neighborhood. I usually am inside by 10:00am and the I eat something light just to take medications. The heat is really bad here already.

I'd like to sleep in (if my body would let me), but I have to get up by 6:30 am to go to work. I usually am out of the house by 7:15 am at the latest & at work by 7:30 am.

On saturdays I usually get up somewhere around 7 or 8 and put the coffee on and watch Extreme Makeovers on TV. Then my usual routine, before I became ill, I went to weight watcher meeting at 9ish and got weighed in and stayed for meeting, then went to the grocery store and then home again. But since I discovered I had cancer, I had the surgery and now I am recuperating, so no weight watchers for a while. I just sit in my recliner and watch tv all morning and drink my coffee and have my Cheerios, raisins and fat free milk lol. By the way, I am getting better from the surgery. Still a little sore, but getting there.

So that's my Saturdays.

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.
