TBD on Ning

Are you a night owl and what time do you go to bed/wake most nights? I used to be a night owl, not anymore.

I get up VERY early,(sometimes as early as 2 A.M.) does that make me a night owl? 

Whoa, Do you stay up then Patricia?

I usually go to bed between 10:00 & 11:00 but sometimes I just can't get to sleep so I get up and play mindless games on the computer until I get tired or sleepy.  I usually get up between 6:30 and 7:30. 

I think I am more of a night owl. But I work 3 days a week and have to get up at 4:30am. So on work nights I am in bed between 7:30 and 8:15 to try to get to sleep. But on nights I do not work I am up until Midnight to 1am. And don't get up until about 9am or so...

Me, too! I will probably always be a night owl at heart. On my husband's latest shift (4 days a week, 4:30 AM - 3:00 PM), I am in bed by no later than 8:00 PM and up by 3:00 AM. Just got the news this will be changing starting next week...New hours will be 4:00 AM - 12:30 PM for 5 days a week...So I will be up by 2:30 AM starting this coming Sunday. On his nights off, we usually stay up until 1:00 AM, sometimes a bit later. Recently he almost got a shift change which would have been much better for night owls like me...Oh but, alas, the guy wanting to make the switch...Didn't have the necessary training to do my husband's job.


I slowly became a night owl after I retired. I usually stay up until 11pm or midnight.

Oh I could go for that! Only setting the alarm clock for certain special occasions.

I usually go to bed at 10 PM. Sometimes I have to struggle to stay awake to get there. Usually, I'm up between 6 and 7 but sometimes, like last night at 2:40 AM, I have trouble staying asleep all night. When I do fall asleep I may last till 7:30 but never later. I'm fresh and sharp when I get up but can't think after 6 PM.

I don't know what kind of "owl" I am anymore. Since I've been getting up early so I can make my Fajr (before sunrise prayer) and sometimes Qiyam, which comes before Fafr...I'm pretty sleepy by 7:30 - 8:30 p.m. sometimes. 

1 or 2 AM is when I hit the hay

Get up at 7 or 8 am

LOL! Bed? Sleep? what are they? LOL! As I got older and started having trouble sleeping I learned a very valuable lesson. Don't fight it. It'll only frustrate you even more. I figure as long as I'm wide awake and can't sleep I might just as well be up doing something useful. I do my best writing in the wee hours. LOL! Between writing, editing, and canning season, I find plenty to expend my unused energy on. Usually, after either a marathon writing or canning session, sleep comes rather naturally ...

Me too


we have 3 recliners in our home

and I am 5-0 

with a pillow & cover I fall asleep easily when the mood fits
