50 things...No. 9

"If man has no tea in him, he is incapable of understanding truth & beauty" ~Japanese proverb (my apologies to those coffee lovers out

"We all need time to be alone; to think, to dream, to wonder" ~Billie Roark

One of my favorite times of the day is the morning. I love the "getting ready for school" routine...we try to get up early enough so it's not a crazy, madhouse rush to get out of the door.
The kids make their beds & get dressed before they come downstairs, we fix breakfast, my daughter & I make lunches, my son & I always watch ESPN top 10 plays together, we check the computers, I might throw a load of laundry in, and they get their backpacks & gym bags's alot to do, but I know that I'll miss it in 2-4 years (once they're both in college).

After they're on their way to school in the morning (and hubby's at work), I get to have that precious "me" time! Even if it's only for 10-20 minutes, it's priceless. Just to be able to sit down at the kitchen table, with my cup of hot tea (usually either Earl Grey or English Breakfast), reading the newspaper, with the Today Show on in the's heavenly!
