Early bird here. I'm at work by 6, so I get up around 4:15 or so to have time to read the paper, have a couple cups of coffee, and stare at the wall a bit to get focused.

But then I get to leave the office at 3 and beat most of the traffic. Also like to be home when daughter gets home from school. She has to leave an empty house in the morning and I don't like her to have to experience that twice a day.

I didn't used to be such a sicko. When we were dating, HH used to have to call me every morning at 7:30 to make sure I got my butt up for work at 8. When he called me in Memphis from the Florida Keys while he was on vacation I knew it was real love.

It's after 5 am here and I've been up over an hour. I have a long list of "to do" things today and dh is sleeping. I will do the quiet things first, then awake him about 7 for a good breakfast.

I am definetely not a morning person.........DH can attest to that. I could stay up till 4 or 5 in the morning easily......that is if I could sleep till noon. Our youngest son would stay up till at least then if we let him...... he gets that after me I guess.

I woke up just before 4 this morning and thought that I would get a jump on the candy making I had planned. Well, that ain't going so well. The water froze about an hour ago; that is what I get for doing other stuff first, lol!!!

After completing my "quiet work", which incidentally didn't injure anyone, and getting on to the regular work, I must make cookies this afternoon. I had lost the recipe and had to call my aunt to get it again, so I'm doing a few other chores (don't ask, BT) while my butter is softening. I think I may have my shopping finished, unless something else pops into my head.

My sleep schedule really depends on my schedule...lately, I have been up at 4-5ish am, working till 9-10pm, and sleeping like a log...No the ideal schedule right now. After the Holidays, i plan on being a night owl for a bit.

I prefer to sleep in until about 7:30 a.m. or so. During the summer I have to be up at 5 a.m. to go to work. In the winter my schedule is a bit more flexible and I don't get up until about 6:00 a.m. Plus I hate getting up when it is still dark and I went to bed when it was dark. On work days I try to be in bed by 9 or 10 p.m. Once in awhile I will stay up on a day off to watch a late show.
