Getting up early...

So, I got a babysitting gig! The bad thing is I have to be there at 7:30 and I live 30 mins away from the person's house...which means I have to get up at 6:00 am. URG! I am not a morning person. Well, luckily, there won't be a lot of traffic at that hour.

The major issue will be coming home. I'll be getting off at about 4:00 that evening. Traffic is really heavy at that time of the evening. 0.0  Wish me luck. The pay is pretty good. It's about 125-150 a week...which is awesome! It's mainly just for the summer though so after the first week of August, I'll have to find something else to do

I was never an early riser until my little boy took to getting up at 5 am... Now 6:30 is sleeping in! :) Good luck!

Oh wow. My son did that for a while when he was young. >.>  I used to have to get up at 5:30 when I was in school cause the bus would run at 6:30. So getting up early isn't that foreign to me...I just haven't had to get up that early in a while!

No fun getting up early! Will you spend the majority of your earnings on gas to get to and from though?

It shouldn't. Our van is pretty good with gas. $10 will be enough to get me there and back plus there the next day. Once my FIL gets his check on the 3rd, we'll have more gas in it.

Good luck!! I am not a morning person either and working from 7 am to 3 pm with a kid was not easy.  Hope all goes well and just remember this phrase if you find yourself hitting the snooze a lot before waking up, "A rough start to the morning is better than no start."
