I'm not sure how I feel here, as, as an affirmed night owl, I have enjoyed the feeling that we share this.

Yet I want your daily life to run easily and happily, so why should I care?

But getting gas that far away that early? Ai-yai-yai.

As a life-long night owl who is still trying to convince my dh (after 25 years!) that being a night owl is NOT a personality trait that needs to be repaired... I do sort of understand the Saturday mornings, and even an early bedtime.
But waking up "naturally" before the alarm? Leaving plenty of time in schedule to buy gas before work? That is weird.
And yes, I will worry if you start exercising before work*, too.

*To qualify for sane, you would have to live in Texas or someplace equally hot and miserable. If you wait to exercise until after the sun comes up in the summer, it is already too hot and too late.

It goes both ways. I used to be a morning person, quite able to wake up naturally at 6 am. Now some mornings I can hardly drag myself out of bed before 8:30 am.


I've always woken up reasonably early - and the older I get... Luckily, my employer thinks it's quite OK that I arrive at work at 7 AM to do prep - even if my first class isn't until 8.30 AM. This way I can go home at a decent hour in the afternoon, because I really slow down as the day goes by.
I also feel the best if I can be in bed by 9.30 PM, preferrably with a good book.
I've never been a night owl voluntarily (working as a waitress forced me into that) so I'm quite happy with the way my body clock works.

I have always been a morning person, until perimenopause hit. I still wake up early if I get enough sleep, but 90% of the time I'm up for hours at night, and have to drag myself out of bed in the morning. I don't care for it, since I'm accustomed to mornings being my high-energy time.

My husband is a total night-owl, though. We both used to compromise until the kid came along. Once I had to get up early with the baby, I fell back into my natural patterns, and he has too :-)


I used to completely enjoy sleeping in until noon. Now, it feels lazy, and like a complete waste of a day. My husband does not share this feeling. Also, if I even suggest that he go to bed before midnight, he looks at me as if I have three heads.


I seem to be going in the opposite direction. I definitely blame menopause.

YOU give me something to aspire to!!!! I've always been a night owl and I dream of being a 'morning person'. even typing that I got chills. :)
