Honest, Constructive, Critiques from Da Grrlzz!
It really does depend on the day. If I have class later, I always think if I finished all of my work or if I need to study for my test, etc. So the last thing I think of is usually what I need to do and what I did for hoemwork that day. If I dont have class, I usually fall asleep pretty quickly. When I wake up it's usually just thinking about getting brandon's lunch done and getting him up for work. then what I have to do that day. I used to be terrible about lying awake for hours worrying about things, but I've gotten a little better with that.
Most any morning the first thing I am thinking about is coffee. I can't even begin to think about anything else until after coffee. Doesn't matter what day it is or how much sleep I got. At night I tend to go over in my mind everything I have to do the next day and whether or not I have everything I need the for the next day. Once I'm positive that everything that needed to be done is done then I fall right asleep. Usually if I don't have to work the next day it's a little different. Those days we usually stay up late watching movies or playing games so I tend to fall right asleep before I can even start to have a thought.
How I wake up on a week day or weekend is different. Weekdays, the 1st thing I think is "snooze button!" then I think of the day & going to the job that I've grown to dislike. I am looking for a new one & am trying to maintain a positive outlook, but it is very hard to not fill up w/ dread for the workday. Weekends are so different, I wake up happy, thinking of what to do that day. Even if I have stuff like cleaning & laundry to do, I know I can squeeze in fun me-stuff. So I am SO excited to start a non-work day...sometimes I even wake up earlier on weekends than I do for work because I'm so happy to have a day off! Sometimes I sleep in lazily w/ DH, that's fabulous too. And I echo Melissa's sentiment that caffeine is among my first thoughts.At night, I admit my mind races chaotically thinking of what I did/didn't do/need to do, etc. But as I relax, in the bed I share w/ DH, in the home we own, I start to think of all the things I'm grateful for - my family & friends, my health, my home, the fact that I even have a job (despite my feelings for it), my beloved pasttimes. I fill w/ a warm & fuzzy optimism as I fall off to sleep. (Note, when I'm truly exhausted, I just konk out! But I still take a moment to be grateful for what I have).
This one's easy. The first thing I think of when I first wake up, every morning, is falling back to sleep. Like most women, before I fall asleep, I go through the day in my mind and what I have to do in the morning--unless I knock out from exhaustion. On the weekends, I'm usually fighting to stay up a little longer or I'm passed out from too much wine.
In the morning, I too first think about coffee. Lately I've also been trying to make a habit of being thankful for all of the people/things in my life. Its kinda like a little morning prayer as I'm getting my coffee ready in the morning. Then I start to think of everything I have to do for the day.At night, I usually go over the important events of the day, but usually am either watching the news or Jay Leno as I fall asleep.
The first thing I think about is...Where is my teddy bear? and he is always right next to me in the "death grip" as Brad says.And the last thing I think about is...Where is my teddy bear?
During the week, the first thing I think about is "why can't it just be the weekend?" On the weekend I usually try to figure out what I am going to do for the day...or maybe what I am going to eat for breakfast (I love breakfast). Before I go to sleep, I honestly always think about how comfortable my bed is. I love it and realize how cozy it is everytime I crawl into it!
