Are you a 'morning' or 'night' person? Most of us have a preference...which are you and are you able to go by your natural pattern or must you force yourself to conform to the world around you? What I mean is...if you are by nature a night person but you have to get up early for work, kids, etc. how do you handle that?

During the years I was in school of various types ( K-12 thru college) I was a very early riser, and also when I was working. I would get up at 4:30 much of the time so I could avoid the traffic crunch that was so aggravating. BUT, once home I'd get the household stuff done, supper and then go to bed early. On the weekend I found it hard to sleep in more than an extra hour.

Back when my kids were very young I became a night person very easily. I was busy with the kids all day but by the time they went to bed I finally found some peace and quiet so I could nourish my soul. Being up until midnight or later has become easier for me these past few years but I'm not sure it's good thing. I still choose to get up when hubby goes to work, pack his lunch and see him off. Then it's time to potty the dog, get her breakfast, then mine, then most often I snooze for a while in the recliner. At 8:00 the puppy wakes up and lets me know it's time for our hour of outdoor play time! I swear she can tell time she's so regular. Maybe she's the proverbial 'watch' dog...lol tongue

But over the years I've gone from a morning person out of necessity to a night person by nature. My youngest son, past 30 now, has always popped up in the morning bright and early and perky as all get out! If I'm around him in this state I just tell him to stop being so gosh darn cheerful in the early morning...which makes us both laugh. Yet everyone knew that you did NOT talk to my mother in the morning before she had her first cup of coffee and cigarette. Dad was like my son...up early with a smile. It's how he was til his last days. What a varied bunch our family is/was.

OK, I've shared more than my share...are you naturally a night owl or an early bird?

Chutzie, this is a trick question:) because it is a toss up but I guess I'm more of a nightowl.
Hubby is definately a morning person and that's good because coffee is made and waiting
for me.

I am an afternoon person but the only problem is when I get on a roll it is time to start dinner. When hubby gets home he expects me to be with him which puts a huge damper on getting anything done.

It takes me a while to get moving in the AM, he is an up-n-adam morning person which drives me crazy. and in the evening he expects me to sit "with" him. I would rather get my errands done in the afternoon eat a leisurely dinner and finish up what I didn't get done............like housework. No housework gets done when he is home. Not my idea of the way things should be but it is easier to do things his way

I am both a morning and a night person. I "fade" during the afternoon, and I love afternoon naps; however my job "gets in the way" of those. :)

For the first few hours after I get up, I feel like an achey slug. I start really coming to life in the evening. They used to give me Phenobarbitol when I was a baby to make me sleep (!) and ever since I can remember, I hate to give in and admit that the day is over, and my chance to make things better is over! Even though I'm not mentally or physically at my best at night - that's in the middle of the day - it brings out all kinds of ideas of things that I want to accomplish (not that I do.)

My dad was also a night-owl, and at the end of his life had gotten his clock so skewed that he'd often go to sleep around 3:00 am.

Oh, I forgot to add that I actually love the morning, as far as sunshine, birds singing, the feeling that anything is possible - I just don't feel good.
