I have to wake up at 4:00 tomorrow.  4 o - hecking - clock!

Afternoon practice is cancelled on tuesdays and thursdays because of water polo, so GUESS WHAT TIME THEY CHANGED IT TO!?  5:30 in the HECKING MORNING.  And then I have to go straight from swim practice to school because practice goes until 7:30 and school starts at 7:55.  

Great.  I'm going to be so tired on tuesdays and thursdays.  It also means I can't check the CB in the morning.

Wow. I wake up at 7 every morning except Mondays and Thursdays. My school always starts at 7:40 for Davening, or Jewish prayers. I'm exempt from school prayers on Mondays and Thursdays. 

(This sounds really weird when I write it out.)

I'm sorry! I hate waking up early too. I have to wake up at 6:30 every morning for school, or even earlier, as school starts at 7:05. Just try to get rest when you can.

One word for you: naps.

Ulch. I have to get up at 6:00 every morning for school, but that sounds way worse. At least you're doing it for something you like!

Wait, why didn't they move water polo to mornings? Wouldn't that have been better?

The water polo GAMES were on Tuesday and Thursday.  I don't think they could change that if they wanted to.

Wow...sorry! That must be awful. I like waking up early, but not THAT early. The earliest I'd ever wanna wake up would probably be 7:00. And that's if I got a good night's sleep. I'm thankful that I homeschool so I don't usually have to wake up too early. Probably around 7:30 when we really get going in our schedule. Rest up, Lucy!

Claaws, that's early. 5:30 is almost reasonable if you only live a few minutes away, but... wow. Maybe talk to your coach about it, see if they can change anything. And if not, try going to sleep really early the night before, and maybe getting up earlier all the other days of the week, too. Sleeping in on some days makes it harder to get up on the others. I've tried it. I get up at 5:45 for school, so I do it on weekends, too. It's not great, but it works, and I get to see the sunrise.
