A Little Smile in the AM

Lately, I have had the hardest time getting out of bed in the morning. As soon as my alarm sounds, I grimace at the thought of emerging from under my warm blankets into the cold, dark day.

I literally have to make a promise to myself each day that, "Today, I will take a nap when I get home from work." This never works, by the way, because by the time I get home from my after-school meetings or chiropractor appointments, it's too late in the day for me to nap without repercussions on my ability to go to bed that night. But... I still feel better, I guess, just giving myself this permission each morning.

No one enjoys waking up before the crack of dawn and hustling off to work (except, maybe, for my mom who is a crazy morning person), but I must admit there's a little something each morning that makes me smile: talk radio.  The 45 minutes I spend commuting to work each day are only bearable because of this entertainment.

For years now, I've enjoyed listening to the KISS FM's "Drex in the Morning" show because the hosts always come up with the most hilarious topics. I often laugh aloud or shake my head in disbelief as I listen to their stories and opinions.  I especially love Mel T, even though she's toned it down quite a bit since getting engaged.  She and I would be good friends if we met... I'm sure of it!

In high school, I was voted 'Most likely to be a talk show host,' and I often think of that when I imagine how much fun it would be to go work with that group every day. Who wouldn't love a job where there are smiles and laughter all the time?!

In the meantime, though, I am thankful for my morning radio crew for giving me something to look forward to on my early morning drives.

What about you?  Is there something that you look forward to every morning?
