It's tough being a morning person, too. It's very hard for me to stay up past 9:00 and, embarrassingly, will yawn my way through any late movie, party, play or even a TV show that goes until 9:30. I'm wide awake at 5:00am and love the quiet, peaceful mornings I have all to myself.
Because you're up later you have more time for knitting than I do. It's all good.


Very interesting post. I think you should give in to your body clock and sleep as much as you need. But I would say that. ;^)


Sleep is a major thing to have issues with. I have had bouts of awakening at night and not being able to go back to sleep. It wears on a person very quickly when you aren't getting the sleep you need. I say do whatever you have to do to get the sleep you need.


I am a night owl who has has been trying to get up and retire earlier, but so far I have not had much success.

It doesn't seem to matter if I get up at 6am or 8am....this body doesn't crank into motion until 9:30 period. If I get up earlier, it's just an extra hour of knitting and coffee nothing more...and the day just doesn't seem complete unless I watch nightline....sigh


I usually make it to bed between 11:00 and midnight, read for a bit, then sleep (usually getting up once) until 5:10-5:30 when my alarm goes off and/or I'm finished hitting snooze. Occasionally, I'll hit snooze once more. I've even done it twice more.

If my schedule was not dictated by work, there is no doubt that I'd be back to my night owl ways, up 'til 1:00-2:00 and sleeping 'til 8. I enjoy days when I wake up super early on my own, for whatever reason, and wish I really were more of a morning person. But I'm not.


I do think the night owl/morning bird is immutable. You can learn how to cope (ask me how I know) BUT your body is never truly happy or on autopilot with this.


I am a hard-wired morning person. Like Margene, I'm up before dawn and start shutting down after dinner. I love my morning time, but it's very solitary - no cocktail parties at 5:00 a.m.!


I think I'm some sort of hybrid of the two. Bottom line: I love my sleep! And I (usually) make sure I get enough -- to hell with the rest of the world.(Except when I have a 7:30 a.m. lecture to cover or whatever... and I thought I could never do that. But Laurie is exactly right -- one CAN do it, but one's body is never truly happy with it.)

About the new wardrobe thing: My weight has crept back up during the campaign with all the stupid eating that went along with it, and I'm giving some teeny clothes to the Goodwill today. I've decided I will never be a 4 again, and I'm fine with that, but I am going to will myself back (comfortably, not stuffed and overflowing as now) into a 6.

I enjoy mornings on the rare occasion when I must be an active participant, but I am a night person. Certified.


I, too, am a nightowl and am married to a morning person. I took heart the other day when I heard on TV (can't remember which program) that nightowls (people ones) have higher IQ's. So, there's some consolation.
