Do you sleep in? how late do you consider "sleeping in"? How do you wake up? (alarm clock, pet noise, kids ect) Sleeping in to me is being in bed @ 7am! Usually I'm up around 6. I either wake up by alarm on my cell phone, or by the dog complaining, or by a kid who woke up and wants breakdfast.

During weekdays I use alarm clock to wake me up at at 5:00 am. As a start, I will say a little prayer to thank God for a new day and to entrust everything to Him the rest of the day that will follow. Then, after that, I will start to fix things and be ready for work. However, when a weekend comes, I usually wake up at 7 am, to enjoy the moment of sleeping. And same thing, I will say a little prayer before starting the day.

i wake up at 6am. my biological clock does the job for me. yes, i always wake up at 6am or thereabouts whether i sleep at 11pm or 1am the previous night. i sometimes sleep in when, upon opening my eyes, i realize it is a saturday. i can best sleep in if i go the bathroom and empty my bladder , then back to bed again. sometimes i go as long as 9am in sleeping in.

On school days I wake up around 7:30 to get my son up for school. On the weekends I sleep in until my daughter wakes up and I have to get out of bed. What time that is varies from 7 am -10 am most weekends.

On school days I set my alarm for somewhere between 6 and 6:30. But I am not a morning person. Some days I'll hit snooze until 7 or 7:30. My oldest has to catch the bus at 7, but he's okay about getting himself out the door. Unlike me, my kids actually are morning people. By the time I make my way out of my room they've already had breakfast, my oldest is gone or ready to go, and sometimes even my 6 year old son is ready to go with his coat and backpack on. The older kids have usually already fed the younger kids too. On Saturdays I sleep until they're being too loud. Sometimes that happens at 8am. There've been a few times when they've gotten involved in something on TV so they stay quiet and I wake up around 10. Sundays are my day to sleep. Hubby gets up once the kids are too loud for him to sleep through it, and I stay in bed until I feel like getting up. Typically that's around 11.

my alarm is set for 7:30 during the week - I'm doing well if I'm still in bed then, internal pressure tends to get me up early

I hate mornings. I usually get up by 6.30 but I don't like it. Sometimes I leave it to 7 am and then I have to rush to get out. My cell phone wakes me - the alarm that is.

Fortunatly I´m retired now because I´m a night bird. I get up at about 10 AM. I live alone and I don´t have to take care of anyone but myself. I go to bed very late, or better said , very early. Sometimes I´m at the computer until 3 AM. When my grandkids stay with me, the hour to wake up is set by them. Then I go to bed earlier because I know I´m supposed to make a wonderful and early breakfast for two.

I normally wake up at 5:30 in the morning. 20 minutes for shower, 20 minutes to dress up and prepare my things and the rest of the time just sitting while waiting for my company bus to pick me up. :)

I'm usually awakened by Cookie when she comes back from inside around 7am. She burrows back under the covers with her cold fur and cold paws! So I get up. Gus gets up with me and Cookie stays in bed like a queen till mid morning when she comes down for a biscuit.
