    I'm not a morning person are you???

    I like to stay up late at night and surf on the computer and read the posts on the message board.

    If I have appts. I make them in the afternoon.

    Early morning-love, small nap, late night. That is my ideal day (smile).

    Me too - somebody was seeing a really pretty sunrise and I had to admit that I have never seen one! I don't sleep too late but do not do too much in the mornings but I do build up steam all day and could be vacumming at midnight if everybody else wasn't already in bed.

    I have to be a morning person because I have kids. Ive gotten to the point that if I sleep in past 6:30am then I feel like I have wasted my day. I also stay up til 11:30pm unless I'm super tired.

    Oh Lordy!! I am SO not a morning person to the point that even tho the office opens at 8am, the boss told me to stay home til 9am because "You're so much more civil then!" :lol:

    As for appointments? I went to a doctor once who suggested a followup appointment. When I went to make the appointment, the receptionist suggested "7:30 ok with you?" I replied that I didn't know they were open that late. She told me she meant 7:30 am...I told her my clock only has ONE "7:30" on it, and it had NOTHING to do with "am"!!!!

    I'm not either, yet at times I must rise and stagger around the house at 5 AM, that is Oh dark hundred!! We go to some early drives out of town and the road trip is long and thank goodness I'm not the driver. I sit back in the back seat and nod off, cuddled up in my lap robe that lives in the van in winter. But usually I stay up late and for the latest hours I'm on the computer till 2 or so and then to bed, after discussing which side of the bed the cat will sleep on. He usually wants my side but I'm bigger than he so I usually win. He gets even with me, at about 4 AM he will jump from the top of the wall to wall bookcase and land on my full bladder....I've learned not to sleep in the middle of the bed.

    I have never been a morning person. DH was on mid-nights for 18yrs, now he's on days. He thought I would get up with him at 4:30 am, It happened twice, now he would rather I stayed in bed. If we see each other in the a.m. it's because I haven't been to bed yet.

    I am torn. I like sleeping in, but I also enjoy waking up early and having a full day. Mornings are peaceful, but also boring so that is another reason to sleep in.
    I go back and forth. I don't make appts till after 10am.

    When recently ask to come in at 8:30am I asked "why? feel like pushing your luck?" At that early Im either going to be VERY irritable and tired, or too sleepy to care.

    I sure do the same thing now that I'm retired. At times I stay up until 3:00 am quilting. It somehow relaxes me and I enjoy the peacefullnes at that time. And yes, I do spend a lot of time reading this board.

    Love very early mornings and late nights....I can get by with about 4 hours sleep, but as I am married I make it 6 as it is bothersome for everyone if I'm up and about rummaging around. Always been the same, ever since I was a child.

    I stay up until about 4:30 a.m. and sleep until 11. I learned to do this because my daughter and her 3 kids with ADHD lived with me and the only me time I got was after they went to bed! So, so peaceful!!!!!!!!!! Now they've moved but I see no reason to change my schedule. I even insisted on a daytime nurse to take care of my foster son so that I could sleep in. I also don't make appointments before 12:30 in the afternoon--later if possible. ;)

    I am definitely NOT a morning person. Don't speak to me before at least 10:00 am, sometimes noon. If I have to get up before 10:00, I have to take a nap around 4:00 pm; then I can stay up until around 3:00 am. All my friends and family KNOW not to call me before 10:00 AM.

    I make all my appointments in the afternoon. Even my hairdresser asks if 11:00 am is too early for me? LOL And you should see the surprise on the medical receptionist's face when I stagger in after 9:00 am for "fasting" lab work! They always double check to see if I've eaten or drank anything and I say no...I just got out of bed! HeHe

    If I've had a long day, say keeping the grandbabies, I'll lay down briefly but the longer I lay there, the wider awake I get. My mama told me that I was born at night and sleep all day and that's why I'm this way...and you know mamas never lie!! :)

    My kids are all grown now but I agree with you that if I sleep in past 6:30 that I feel like I have wasted my day. I love getting up early because it makes the day last longer!! I'm all for taking naps in the afternoon though.

    My grands when they are here know that even if they see me walking and talking I am NOT awake til the fuzz in my head is gone. Usually an hour after I get up. I prefer to stay up til 3 and sleep til 10 or 11. WHen kids are here I have to get up earlier but I call it kid time and I get off kid time as soon as they go home. Most of my grands are now old enough I don't have to be up when they get up.It kills me to revert to kid time. I do so much better when I can stay up til 3 and sleep in. MY mom always calls me every day about noon and ask if I am up yet. I have one son who thinks it is hilarious to call me at 6 or 7am. He knows he is waking me up! He is an early riser and always has been since he was born. He is up at 3 or 4 am every day.

    I am a night owl I love the hours from midnight to 3. I know the phone won't ring and my DH is finally asleep. My mom is asleep and won't be in and out of my door. It is truly me time when I know I am uninterrupted. I can concentrate and not have to stop to answer anyone.
