As usual

Today is Saturday. I did not set an alarm and my plan was to sleep in. That did not happen. As usual I was awake at 5 a.m. It does not matter that I stayed up a little late last night. My mind and body are so accustomed to getting up at 5:00 that I did it anyway. I napped some yesterday and will again today. It is the best thing to do in the heat.

I mostly wake at the same time each day but sometimes I manage to stay in bed past my usual get-up time.

5:00 a.m. has been my time for the most part since High School. Over 50 years.

@GardenGerty That 5 am wake-up would be well and truly entrenched now.

I planned to get up early enough to get to the yard sale before all the good stuff was gone, but 2:30 was a bit much. (Thank you RLS)

I find I am fortunate not to have that problem. I just have almost always gotten up around 5 a.m., or even 4:30.Lately I have been taking the occasional short nap to make up for it.

I generally have a warm blooded alarm, he just refuses to let me sleep in.

We have Lady cat, who wants to snuggle and would sleep all day.

I don't sleep well when things are hectic around here. This week has been a hard one, I need some sleep and peace, but it's not going to happen right now, son is getting a bit better but we aren't there yet, so I march onward...a mom has to do what a mom has to do.. Hope you catch a nap. Heck, I hope I catch one, too! Have a good day, Heather.

Yes, as moms we do what we must. I hope you get a bit of a nap.

Napping is the best thing to do in this heat. You said it. I have known many people who get up about the same time every day no matter what. I am a night person and so my sleep pattern is different. I might wake up at 8a. one morning and not until 10 or 11a. the next. Odd isn't it?

Scar decided I needed to get out of bed an hour earlier this morning than I had intended when I went to sleep last night. Most times I can yell 'No' at him enough times and he'll lay back down, but not today.

It is my bladder mostly, and achy old bones. I have a few years on you.

Yes, I think our bodies are well tuned into our regular sleep habits.

I tend to get up with the sunrise, which has been occurring at 6 AM or so recently.

It's market day. I went to the market and spotted a blind man begging while singing with his guitar. I took a video for my YT channel.

You get up early. What time do you usually go to bed?

Last night it was ten. I could go as early as 7:30 but do not do that often.
