Earlier this year, I told you about my new morning routine, which consisted of getting Bubby on the bus, then doing devotions with the chickens, followed by Just Dancing. I loved that routine, and it worked perfectly for me, for a lot of reasons.
And then this school year happened. Bubby catches the bus much earlier, and it isn't light out at that time. I could grab my headlamp along with my Bible and prayer journal, but since the point of doing devos outside with the chickens is to get exposure to early morning sunlight, that would kind of defeat the purpose.
So I was waiting until it was light out to go out, which was about an hour and a half after everyone had left the house for the day. I started doing other things, and I ended up not actually reading or visiting the chickens most days, which led to not Just Dancing, either.
It made me sad, but I wasn't sure what to do. The school district is not going to adjust the bus schedule based on my needs.
I wasn't sure what to do, that is, until yesterday. Why not, I thought to myself, reverse? Why not start Just Dancing as soon as the others clear out in the morning, in the basement, where it doesn't matter whether or not it's light out, and then go out and read with the chickens?
Y'all. Why did it take me this long to figure this out?
So we're back in business, friends--morning routine: exercise, God-time, and early morning light exposure--back on track.
Speaking of Just Dance, the 2020 version came out last week. I wonder how long it'll be until the World Dance Floor switches over to the 2020 songs. And will I still be able to access the World Dance Floor with my 2019 game after that happens? I hope so. At least I think I hope so. Maybe I'll feel differently when I start not knowing the songs, and not being able to practice them on demand. I'll let you know what happens.
