From early on, I was up early and hard to settle down at night. When I started kindergarten all thru college, I was up by 5am and still found it hard to go to sleep at night. In college, I was f/t 5 days a wk, & I worked f/t 6 days/nights a wk. I had no common day off. So on Sat night, I would go out w/ my friends after work. My work didn't end til 11:30pm or later, and I would get home about 3am. Try to sleep and be up again to go to work on Sun morning, after Mass. Since being married and having children, my schedule revolved around their school hrs, guess what, still up at 5am!
As I went back to work, I had to be in by 7am at the latest, so I got up even earlier to get me ready and get my children out for school. My 'babies' are all grown up and going to work by themselves, but I'm still up early. I guess I'm more of a morning person, it may take me a bit to be able to move (everything is locked up on the body), but I have whatever energy I will have for the day early on. Life in the fast lane!
God bless. Alice.
