My husband is usually the one who is up early enough to ensure that our sixth-grader gets to the bus stop on time three days a week and to drive him to school twice a week for before-school orchestra practice.
Several days this week, though, my husband is working out in the field rather than in his cabinet shop, and that requires him to be out our front door extra early. So I have kid-rousting duty, which means I'm awake very early. This all reminds me of back when I was an employee, when I used to head off to the commuter train station in a mental haze each workday morning when it was still dark out.
Thank the universe I am self-employed and can set humane hours for myself!
