Mistaken Identy

For some reason, our new wake up time is 5:15 or 6:00 a.m..  It doesn't matter what day of the week it is, Linda is totally alert and ready to start her day if she gets right up.  If she stays in bed and tries to sleep, she gets groggy and muddled.  That's what happened today.  She woke up at 5:15 and felt super great.  Since she does not meet Tier for breakfast til 8:30, she she tried to fall back asleep.  When the second wake up time rolled around, her eyes opened, but she felt like she was hit by The Hulk.  I almost got stepped on because she was shuffling around the kitchen (while dropping things and forgetting to put a coffee filter in the pot!)  Finally, she sat down in the den with her coffee and gazed out the window like she does every morning.  But today... WOW!  A baby deer was grazing in her neighbors yard.  We live right on the edge of some woods and even once had a deer in our backyard (that jumped over the 6' fence!!)  After a few minutes of the deer not moving, Linda went to get the iPhone so she could take it's photo.  By now, she was a little more awake.  When she opened the front door, she saw that the baby deer was really one of those low Adirondack chairs. 

HA-HA!  Linda, you better start wearing your glasses and waking up when your body tells you it's time or the next time you might mistake the mailbox for a Troll.
