I Don't Do Mornings Very Well

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,531 People

    I just want stay burrowed under my sheets,

    fluffy blanket, and five downy pillows. This is when I have the best sleeps and dreams. Anyone or anything that tries to separate me from my bed is the enemy.

    Two Kinds of People There are two kinds of

    people. Those who wake up in the morning and say, "Good morning, Lord," and those who wake up in the morning and say, "Good Lord, it's morning."

    There should be a law against mornings.

    Wake me up before 10 am, receive the death penalty.

    You go ahead and start "seizing the day"

    without me. I haven't had nearly enough coffee yet.

    "Good Morning" is a contradiction of terms.

    So is "Bright and Early" for that matter. My brain works on low power in mornings so if it's early I'm not very bright. I was so tired one time I was about to put the milk away after eating cerial and suddenly nature called, so I went to the bathroom. Guess where I left the milk...

    For What?

    My life has become so tedious and boring why would I want to wake up early, no job(or prospects of getting one), no car, no friends close by, husband angry almost all the time, so give me my coffee, don't talk and let me get through yet another day of boredom and angst: cleaning...

    I have never been a morning person,

    but this is mostly during the winter when I refuse to put a toe out of my bed before 8.30am. During those parched, fierce days when it's impossible to sleep during the summer, I'm sometimes up long before dawn. It's during the pre-dawn that I then feel the luxury of hours. The...

    Not A Morning Person

    I think I'm a pretty pleasant person other than morings.  I mean sure I have my moments of bitchiness, but who doesn't (whether they admit it or not).  I'm definitely not a morning person, though.  Totally a night owl.  I'm not intentionally grouchy when I...

    Which Is Very Unfortunate...

    as I am currently managing a B&B. If I had my druthers I would be completely nocturnal...especially during the ghastly heat of summer.

    Once I Get Going...

    I'm fine once I get moving...but getting to that point is the challenge!  I'll hit the snooze button half a dozen times before staggering blearily around my room, getting ready.  I'm usually with it by the time I head for the bus...but that's a full two hours after my alarm...

    Slow To Start

    slow to start, in fact stunned would be a good word after I get up.  I often bump into things, don't like to talk to anybody and need quiet time, me time and space ... given a few hours and a good start, my day usually goes well and I am happy.  If anyone screws this up...

    Except When I Worked Overnights

    when I worked overnights the mornings were the best part of my night because that was when I was allowed to go home and go to sleep. Now it's when I have to get up. lame.. Thank goodness for alarm clocks or else I would never get up. I wonder what people did to get up on time...

    I don't do mornings very well - In fact you

    have to kick me out of bed to get me up. Also the fact that I have to get outta bed at 6:00am doesn't help.

    Five Snoozes

    7:30 am the terrible screeching sound of my alarm clock can be heard on the other side of the room forcing me to drag my sleepy butt out of bed and slam down on the snooze button. 7:45 the alarm goes off again- snooze. Rinse and repeat till about 8:50 when I finally manage to lug...
