Her Day is Over by 11 a.m.???

Mom was in a bad mood today half the time and in her nastiness she said that her whole day was wasted by 11;00 a.m. when she finally stopped waiting for someone who never showed up. I was wondering if anyone else thought their day was done by that time?? I think it was just starting for me, personally but she is always up at 3 a.m. for no real reason so she 'rushes' everyone else and they practically have to do things at her pace and time, for example eat dinner at 3:20 p.m., which use to be 3:30 p.m., and 3:40 and now I'm thinking one day it will be 3 p.m. @ the rate she is going. She keeps making it earlier and earlier. I would be starving by 7 p.m. if I ate dinner that early. I think 3:40 is early enough! When I make dinner I try to make it slightly later. Otherwise she would be eating the furniture haha. Just kidding and trying to find some humor in this.

I have wasted time waiting on people as well. but never did I feel like my day was wasted. I still had time to do other things as well. I do hope she gives up that bad attitude before she hurts her heart.

I have, in the past, let things bother me for too long. Like when someone has promised something and went back on it. Definitely not good for the heart.

I never feel like that either, it's not like I wanted to let them waste it but she could have a better attitude at times too. Her heart seems to already been hurt a long time ago, if she ever really had one to begin with in 'some' ways. Her heart is pretty much wishy washy anymore.

I know when you are waiting for someone and they never show up or take a long time to show up it can be a bit of a headache and an annoyance. So I suppose she was just moody because of it, especially if she already gets up at 3:30 in the morning. I usually have dinner around 6 or 7 but no earlier then 4 unless I want it to be a lunch and then just eat something smaller later.

I can understand that, but I wouldn't be taking my mood out on everyone all day like she did today. Some points of the day she was fine and other times the slightest thing would set her off, she was the worst with my dad and actually got fairly vile with him twice. She never likes to be told she is doing anything wrong for example and if she even senses it alittle that someone says something like that to her she will go off on them especially if she is in a bad mood to begin with. Yet she can critique everyone and everything else she wants, cause she has this "entitlement" to. I wish I knew what caused this. Everyone I talk to says 3:30 is way too early, but that is her always doing things so wierd. I asked her several times why she gets up at 3:30 a.m. even when she doesn't have to and she comes up with the excuse that her father always used to get them up that early. (Uhm, so I'd want to get up later if I was in my own home, no??)

I know people who are like that, I have family members who can never be wrong. Even when they are it's better to let them think they are and when they realize they aren't? Don't mention it either because it's just more of a headache. Then there's the one that is always fussing about something. Now honestly when you get used to a schedule it's hard to break it but I wouldn't want to get up at 3:30 am unless I had to for some reason. The earliest I'd wake up just to wake up early would be 5 am.

I can't imagine anyone wanting to get up at that other than it's her "me time" and alone time but who knows what goes through her head. She usually sits at the kitchen table doing word search puzzles every day at that time. Blah.

Your mom can be an early bird, and it is fine. But to have dinner at 3pm? My gosh! My children will all be crying for food by 6pm again! What has drove her to be this way?

Yes and I have tried to tell her that but she does not think like the rest of us, and it can be a hindrance at times. If she was cooking for anyone else than us they would never care for her at all.

Was she always this way since you were a kid? What do you do after the 3pm dinner? And what does your mother do then?

That is a bummer when your day is over at 11am. Its early still for me at that time. I however dont get up until about 8 or 9. I used to sleep until after that though! But not any more. I feel like my day is half over if I do sleep in until that time. You say you guys have dinner at 3:30!?? Or was that what you were kidding about? That is the time that I give my children their snack. We eat anywhere between 5:30 and 6:30. What time does she do to bed? That time schedule would never work for us! LOL

11 am is over, ahhhh no wonder, dinner time is at 3:20... and at 6:00 pm it is already midnight. Are you sure she is using the right clock? just kidding but this is a cute discussion. She has really different biological clock, which later on some of the members of the household may adapt.

ladygator, I don't know where she gets it from really but she says her dad used to get her and the rest of the family up this early but for what I don't know and that was over like 60 years ago. I just thinks her whole presence is different from most of us in general. No I wasn't kidding about the 3:30, and now she makes food even earlier like #;20 at times, and that is why I was thinking it gets earlier and earlier. She goes to take a few hours of a nap after 4-5 for at least 3 hours cause my brother wakes her up at 8 when he puts on his TV shows. Then she goes to bed for certain usually at approx. 9 p.m. til maybe that 3:30 a.m. I'm moving in with you guys, haha! (Can I please? Teehee) Mavic, She does seem to have a different 'clock' amoung other things than most, she is just one of a kind, a doctor or two has told her that.

I would feel I had wasted some time also if I waited and this person never showed. I am always early and when I tell someone I will be there at a certain time I am there or I call them. I hope this person had a good excuse. I think that 3:30p. is early for dinner. How about a snack?

I can understand that but to take your anger out on someone or others in the house is not right. She doesn't even need this to go off on anyone. I know, everyone I talk to about that time says it is way too early. Leave it to her to do things so wierd all the time.

No, it isn't. But it does happen. Some people are just too impatient.

I think she means to say that her whole day is spoiled/wasted since the person she was waiting for did not show up? Kind of sad if it works that way. I can imagine it's annoying to wait for someone, count on it, and that person does not show up but to give up that day because of that reason? Good you still see the humor in this!

Yes but she has often said other times when she wasn't waiting or someone either that her day is "finished" by that time. I'm not sure what her meaning is but she is so different than most of us in the world it is rather disturbing at times, that is why I try to find humor in it--usually I fail though LOL. By the way that person she waited for finally showed up today when no one was expecting them.

That's just about the time my days begin. I missed being able to eat breakfast at 6 A.M. and lunch at noon and so on. My sleeping cycle is all screwed and it's just so hard to discipline myself and start regulating it back to normal. It's 12 noon Saturday here, woke up more or less 30 minutes ago, took my bath, missed another school activity this morning, and now starving but still waiting for my girlfriend to arrive from her half-day work so that we'll eat lunch together, which in my case will be brunch. I hate being this lazy but I just couldn't help it. I'm doomed.

You're not lazy you are about like me, I would prefer to get up at 9 a.m. as I really don't have all that of a rush around here to get things done like she does and then have dinner at 5 p.m. like we used to years ago.

Well, probably what she really means is since she has been up for that many hrs. already, and everything is continuing to not go her way that day, she feels as if her day is over. There are days I think in reality, we all feel like this and can relate, or wish the day was over since it has not been the best.

She's pissed off because of that someone who never showed up and it's wasted her time waiting instead of doing something. But it's too early and her time is done?..not a halfway for a day yet. 3:30 is maybe a snack for her and shes diet so she wont eat dinner anymore hehehe. My grandma used to have dinner at 5pm before buts it's fine because she is sleeping at 6pm and wake up 4am to start her day. But 3:30 for dinner too too early.Maybe she got used to it so it's hard for her to her dinner routine.
