Tell Me Tuesday: Mornings or Nights

Tell Me: Do you stay up late or wake up early? Or are you crazy enough to do both?

It's much easier for me to stay up late. The kids go to bed, and mommy plays! :) Thats when I pull out my projects. Or read. Or catch up on a movie I've been wanting to see. Usually no matter what it is I'm doing I wind it up around midnight. I try to go bed earlier. I just can't do it captain.

I wish I was more of a morning person. I love getting a handful of chores done in the morning and still having the entire rest of my day. Alas I usually wake up like 30 minutes before my 1st grader has to go to school.

There are some things I have to do in the morning though. Like if I dont make it to the grocery store before 10am I'll wait and go the next day (collegetown gets busy around these parts and I try to avoid the crowds as much as possible). Or doctors appointments. I hate waiting in the waiting room for two hours. Those morning appointments are all I ever do.

What about you, are you a morning person or night owl?

I'm so a night owl. As evidenced by the time stamp on this comment. ;)

I've been a night owl all my life, but lately I've been waking up fairly early too. Thank goodness for naps! :)

I LOVE nights so much! But the staying up late is not good for me. *sigh*

I am a night person. I hate mornings but my kids have to be at school by 8:10am so I have to get up early. Boo.

I am both - last to bed, first one up - and naps are my best friends!

I've always been a night-owl until this past summer. When I started running again, my body took the notice and sleep came early. Of course, some nights (like last) I stay up to finish a fabulous book. I know I've found a good book when I have to finish it before my eyes close. ;)

I am totally a night person also, but I can get up early if I have to (for doctors appointments and such, I like to avoid the crowds too)

I could stay up all night. I usually go to bed between 11-12, and wak up at 9 AM! Love my work schedule.

MEME said...

Am I the only one whose a middle of the day person? If anything I want to be a morning person, but I love sleep too much, hence, I sleep in if given the opportunity and I can't stay up past midnight for the life of me. Usually I go to bed at 10:00.

NIGHT!!!

I'm normally a night owl. However, I have to get up at 5:15, so I can go to work in the morning. I try to go to bed around 9:30, so I get enough sleep. But, depending on homework, I don't always get to bed until midnight. O_o

Jill Hunt said...

This is tough one because I think I am both. I am like you and stay up late just so I can have time to myself to get things done as well and since lately Ethan really doesn't go to bed until 10pm, I fee like my "me" time hasn't started until he is asleep. But on the other hand, I CANNOT sleep past 7:30am no matter how hard I try. I seem to have more energy and enthusiasm to get things done in the morning. If I haven't done my "to do" items by early afternoon, then it is a lost cause!

I'm a night owl. Its so much easier to stay up until midnight or later than it is to get up before 8.

Olivia Carter said...

I stay up late too! I wish I was a morning person too!

Kayla said...

um... neither. I don't like getting up early. My body will naturally wake up with the sun very nicely, but if there is an alarm involved then I am not nice.

I don't naturally stay up late either. The past few months I've been up late because of hubby's work schedule, but I usually go to bed around 10:30 when I can.
My most productive hours of the day are from about 9:30-12:30. If it's not done then, chances are it's not happenin'! :)

I love getting up early except since having children, I go to bed late for the "me" time which means I'm tired and try to sleep in. ha like that will happen. Plus Jordan is a late night person, but really, I'd be happy going to bed at 8pm and getting up at 4. Unfortunately, I usually go to bed at 12 and get up at 6 or 7.

Susan said...

It's easier for me to stay up late too!

Brodi Ashton said...

I used to be a morning person. I used to wake up at 5:30 every day. But then I had kids, and I love our free evenings so much, I don't want them to end.

Heids said...

Hmm.... I go to bed at 10:30, wake up at 6:30 with the babes though 8 is ideal, and nap many an afternoon. I don't think I'm an anything person. Boring middle o' the road I guess.

Rachel@MyPinkFlipFlops said...

uh neither? I just want to sleep sleep sleep! I guess 10:30 is kind of early. But I wouldn't call me getting up at 7:00 early morning. If I can sleep in it's usually til 8:00. I'm weird in that I need like, 10 hour of sleep! Of course I'll never get that. Not until Baby Boots sleeps through the night again. The little stinker.

I am a night owl! Although I love when I wake up and get things done in the morning and once I am awake I am happy but the whole staying up in peace and quiet it way too tempting!! :) Found your blog, so great! :)
