    I start work at 6:00am up to 6 days a week. In order to be at work on time and have enough time to come to EP, I try to be up by  4:00am. It's not always easy.

    The Butt Crack of Dawn

    I have to catch the bus at 6:41  so I get up at 5:45. it's not easy. I HATE having to pry myself out of my warm spot and my nice warm blankets on my comfy bed. I have to make myself do it. but once I start on to the bus stop I partially snap out of it by walking briskly...

    Early In the Morning

     I have my alarm set for 6 AM. The annoying beeping it made woke me enough to slap it off.  Then I'd oversleep.  So I switched to the radio.  That seemed to work better.  It's funny what we'll sacrifice for a few more minutes of sleep. If I skip shaving...

    3:15 A.m.

    I've always liked getting up early: up until I was over fifty, I never slept past 7:00 a.m. unless I was sick. Then I met a night-owl type, who never went to bed before 5:00 a.m. (my usual waking up time). We've been together for over seventeen years by now, and have wound up...

    Ugh... The Daily Rat-race... Sorta!

    I wake up on the weekends, at 5:30am or 6am. Sometimes, if I had a rough dream, it's 5am on the dot. I get myself ready with coffee... and I work at home, database entry work.... so I turn on my laptop and do my work for a few hours... Then, I'm done for the day. I then log...

    Bed time is bed time. Morning time is awake time, bright eyed & bushy tailed :P I think a person is either one or the other, a night person or a morning person. I've always felt my best in the AM's because I've obtained my beauty rest. I rise to the quiet of nature or...

    My Time

    I'm an early riser.  I am up by 6am or earlier every day.  I have my routine.  Shower, shave, brush teeth and get dressed (most of the time), then I get in the car and head for the corner cafe for my morning coffee.  During the week, I...
