I am a stranger here myself

I have always been a late riser but last summer I decided to start getting up at 6:00am to beat the traffic. I have been getting up early for almost a year now but it still doesn’t feel right.

I enjoy getting home while it is still light so I can play with my kids and my morning routine is like clockwork and yet it still feels strange… I feel like an expat living in a foreign country. I like my new home and will probably never go back but I have fond memories of the old country and I will always consider myself a late riser.

Oh – and 6:00am is no longer early enough to beat the traffic. I should get a hybrid so I can drive in the car pool lane.
