I will admit it. I am a morning person. People have commented how I wake up happy. It’s true. I DO wake up happy in the morning. What is there NOT to be happy about? It’s a new day!
When the alarm goes off (at 5:30,) I am up and my day starts. However, because I get up so early, I tend to get tired around 1 or 2. Once I get my second wind, I’m good. Or, on the weekends, when I get my nap, I’m good. Gotta love naps.
That being said, I am not very fun to go out with at night. I never have been. I am usually dead tired around 10:00. My normal bedtime is 9:30. I am one of those people who can lay their heads down on the pillow and be out cold until the alarm goes off. I don’t require much. I could sleep on a cement floor as long as I have a blanket covering me.
I also tend to be more productive in the morning. On the weekdays that Todd is already at work, I can get up, throw a load of laundry in the wash, take Lana for a walk around the block, feed the piggy as soon as we get home, hang the clothes on the line, prepare dinner for that evening (so that all I have to do when I get home is nuke it) and get ready for work. Yes, I leave for work around 8, so that gives me 2 ½ hours to do all of that. In the evenings when I get home from work (around 6:30,) I am good for NOTHING. We eat dinner, I go outside and play with the animals, put Lana to bed, check my emails, spend a little bit of time with Todd and then go to bed.
Luckily, Todd is a morning person too. This helps when we both want to get up early and go someplace together. It would be rough if he was a night owl and me be a morning person.
So…what are you?
