I wake up at around 7am for work but because Sadako has her own wake-up time, I usually wake up an hour earlier. Let me correct that: she wakes me up an hour earlier.

I have to admit it can get a little annoying sometimes, especially when I sleep late, but once I get to see her just-woke-up face (complete with still-sleepy eyes and some marks on her face--you know, those that you get when you sleep on your creased blanket or bedsheet), it becomes a very good morning, no matter what time it is.

I especially like it when a full bladder or something wakes me up--and I see her staring at me. I smile, and then she smiles, and I almost always don't want to leave the bed anymore.
