It is now 52 weeks that I have managed to get to church by 5 a.m., to sit for an hour in quiet prayer. Oh, how I love this time. This morning, however, was the first time that the alarm didn't wake me immediately. I am such a light sleeper that I set the alarm clock on very very quiet music, and it normally wakes me at the first note. This morning, I woke up after the music had been playing for 3 minutes. I think this speaks to how overwhelmingly tired I am.
There is nothing huge on my horizon today. I need to make my reservations for my Alaska trip and will probably do that today. It is so hard to figure out what to do in a place you have never been and don't know what you'll love about it. I will likely book a train trip (for the day after my marathon) from Anchorage to Denali, stay two nights at Denali (Mt. McKinley), and come back to Anchorage. My nephew wants to do some cool stuff, like a fishing charter, back around Anchorage, so after a few days away, I will come back to his house. And I will get to go to AA meetings with my beloved nephew! It just all sounds too fantastic to believe. I have wanted to go to Alaska all my life. I spent most of last evening looking at websites of places to go. This is the kind of "problem" I like to have!
I better get going.
