I HATE getting up early. I don't mean that I don't like it, I mean that I HATE it. You can ask anyone in my family and they'll tell you how much I hate getting up early.
It started when I was a kid.
I don't know if I hated it back then, but I definitely didn't like it. My mom and I had more fights about me not getting out of bed than anything else. She even talked to a counselor about it. The counselor told her to stop getting me up and make me responsible for it myself (I was in high school at the time). I guess she did - I don't remember.
As an adult, I've been grateful that I have naturally curly hair. I wet my hair daily, put gel in it, fluff it up and I'm good to go. It takes about a minute. I don't allow hair stylists ever to give me a style that requires an ounce of effort because I won't do it. They try but I stand firm.
I work very, very hard never to schedule early appointments. I was pretty bummed when I had to be at the hospital for 5:00 am to have a c-section 28 years ago. I really thought that was an unreasonable time. I mean, come on, I'm having a baby - don't you think I need as much rest as I can get?!
And my colonoscopy. That was early, too. What are they thinking with these early appointments???
I homeschooled my kids so I wouldn't have to get up early to take them to the bus stop. No - not really, but that was definitely a huge benefit.
I was really sad when my oldest two grandkids started school because it meant that if they stayed over during the week I had to get up early to take them to school. But I do it. And it's hard!
Did I mention that knowing I have to get up early actually stresses me out? It does. Unfortunately the result of the stress is that I can't sleep. So I end up dealing with the double-whammy of not sleeping and getting up early! It is NOT a good combination.
You're probably wondering if I'm a night owl. The answer is no. I'm not an early bird and I'm not a night owl. My granddaughter calls me a day owl. I'm a day owl who HATES getting up early!
What are you? Early bird? Day Owl or Night Owl?
