This Explains My Behavior

Every single night I go to bed at 2am and have to wake up at 5:30am during school hours or on holidays I slather in the bed and sleep until 10am. Nope 10 never really happens because my kids have a knack for waking up at 6:30am every morning when it's NOT a school day!

I bounce up and give them food and something to do and flop back down to get the rest of my sleep until 10am.

However, no matter how I beg and plead and promise myself that I will go to bed at a reasonable hour, such as 12am. It never happens - only happens if I am so tired that my body take over, refuse to cooperate and just drop out.  This is so frustrating and funny!  But just like mothers have to take the reins, I think it's good when my body becomes my mother for my own sake :)

So I fully understand this quote:

And all the things I just have to experience!

Do you sleep at a reasonable hour?

  1. I so understand this! I have been a night person all my life! But our alarm clock rings at 4 am. I hear people actually brag about how early they get up--really? why? I've heard that the old pioneers had to get up at 4am and milk the cows. Really? In the dark? Besides, I don't have any cows and neither do they. I've heard the one about the rooster crowing, too, but my great aunt's rooster actually crows at the crack of dawn--not 4 am. I think that 4 am is an ungodly hour--too late to still be awake and too early to start the morning. *sigh*

  2. I have always been a night person 3:00 a.m. is about my limit though, but not lately. I guess because I got up one morning (Lord knows why I was just up and awake), so I figured I'll be a nice little wifey, and make hubby a nice breakfast to go off to work with. WRONG MOVE! I've been doing it ever since. YAWN The only days I do go back to bed is when I'm so not feeling good. So that's why it's 8:05 a.m. and I'm blogging because puppy and fish is fed, bed is made, and I'm watching (listening) to my favorite show CHARMED ON DVDS. I have every season and I love it! IT'S ME TIME GIRLFRIEND! EVERYONE IS GONE AND FOR THE SAME REASON I STAY UP YOU CAN STAY UP - ME TIME! IT'S THE BEST TIME EVER TO DO WHAT THE HELL YOU WANT!

  5. I'm TOTALLY with you on this CS! Especially of late when I'm not going to sleep until 4 or 5 in the morning; granted, insomnia and pain will keep a person awake, but I probably SHOULD try to go to sleep earlier. At least TRY!

  6. I am like you, J.S. Hardly ever do I get to bed before midnight. 1 AM is a good average for me (last night it was 1:44 when I laid down).

    The dogs wake me up before seven wanting to go outside and then eat their breakfast. If Mrs. Jim wakes up earlier for some reason she will take them out and then I sleep until almost eight. That doesn't happen often.

  7. i don't sleep at a reasonable hour. I am sleep deprived. I can't even sleep in on weekends. I can't go back to sleep after woken. I am a light sleeper. It's very bad...I wish I can sleep a deep sleep at least one day a week.

  8. I definitely don't get to sleep at a reasonable hour - anywhere between midnight and 2am - and up at 5:30, too! No wonder I've been in a foggy brain state... ;) Though I do get to sleep in until 7 on Saturdays! :)

  9. I'm in bed by 8 or 9 and I get up between 5 and 6. Sometimes I don't go to sleep until 10 or 11 though. I'd like to sleep more but I've noticed that the more birthdays I have the less I seem to sleep. When my kids were growing up I was asleep by 9 every night. LOL

  13. I am single, don't have kids and work from home full-time so I can work & sleep on my own schedule. I have always been a night owl and I have bad insomnia a lot too. For some reason I can't sleep at night but I could sleep all day. If I let myself I would be up until 4 or 5am and not get up until noon every day... Some days I do let that happen, lol... but then I feel yucky and even more tired than normal... There are never enough hours in the day and I often say I wish I didn't require sleep at all...

  15. I think I go to bed at a reasonable hour 10-11p but I have the problem of not being able to sleep through the night due to back pain, BR visits or if I have something on my mind, so I never put in a full night of sleep.

  16. I go to sleep at 11:00, and up by 6:00! My body expired at past 11:00 and my eyes shut down. So yes, I do have a normal sleeping schedule :-)

  17. I have learned to go to bed at 11:30. I am a night owl and I am also not a morning person so to make it through my day productively, I have to make myself go to bed.
