I had a tough time getting up this morning. All I wanted to do was stay in bed despite the agenda on our “to-do” list (e.g., go to the gym, grocery shop). Eric was up and rearing to go but his enthusiasm was no match to mine. I jokingly said to him, “You are going to have to create some antecedent events to get me out of this bed.”
Next thing I know, he’s removed the duvet from the bed and is opening our bedroom window. It is a chilly, breezy morning and I hate the cold. That’s enough motivation to get me up.
I am out of bed. Window closes. Eric wins.
And so starts the rest of my day.
