Are you a morning person or a night owl?

  1. I am up at 7am and in bed by 10 or 10:30 every night.

    I love the morning..blue skies, big puffy clouds, and lots of sunshine!

    Just don't talk to me before I have had my morning coffee and don't ask me to stay out past 10pm

    I enjoy doing things during the day..I can't remember the last time I was out partying...Must have been before hubby and child But back then, I was able to sleep until 11 or 12, if I was out real late.

    How about you?

    I'm more of a late morning to evening person. My body just loved 3-11 shift. I have been on days since 1989 and still barely make it to work by 7a and I only line 0.9 miles away.

    Absolutely MORNING !!! I get up @ 0330,to be at the clinic @0430 to put the first pts. on (dialysis) @ 0500. And on my days off when I COULD sleep, I'm up @ 0430 or 0500, but make myself doze back off at least until the first ray of light. It's not just 'cuz my biological clock has set itself that way now, but even as a kid, always preferred the "brand newness " of the day ! For me, there's nothing better than sitting on the front porch with my first cup of coffee before anyone's up out there.. just the few birds beginning their morning routine of tuning their little whistlers... I like "hogging" the first moments of a brand new day all to myself!
    (RenaRN...I know...I can have YOUR share anytime, right?) I'll TAKE it !

    I hate mornings.... I get going after 3pm.... I can do an allnighter easily..

    I clean my house every Friday night- soup to nuts and got to bed at 3 am.

    I just enjoy that time... it's just me because my husband works nights... the kids are asleep.....

    I can even study all night! I hate getting up in the morning...

    I do not do mornings well! I prefer getting up late, and staying up late. Yesterday (Labor Day) I got up at 11 a.m., and stayed up until 2 a.m. this morning. I tend to get my internal clock ticking best at about 2 p.m., and easily run until midnight or later, without any strain.

    Because I work days ( one 8 a.m. day and 2 10 a.m. days) and live so far away, I have to get up 2 hours early; 6a and 8 a. It totally goes against my grain! :roll
