As a former night owl, I have lots of stories and examples of how true that statement is. I have recently come to the conclusion that nothing good happens before 8 am either.
Whenever possible, I make my first appointment of any day at 10 am. I’ve done this for so long, I don’t even remember why I chose this time. I currently have Physical Therapy ( pain and torture, pt, etc) on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10. I tend to make my parents appointments on Mondays and Wednesdays in case I need to be there with them, and Friday is for last minute “Oh Fucks.” This week however, my parents had their 3 month appointment with the GP at 10:20 am on Tuesday. Fuck, I have PT at the same time! After some fenagling, I was able to move my appointment to 8 am on the same day instead of 10. GRRRRR
I went to bed early Monday night, well at least I tried, knowing that I would have to get up at 6 to consume enough coffee before I had to leave at 7:30. When the alarm went off at 6, I threw the phone across the room to make the god awful noise stop. I knew I wasn’t going to see the kids or grandkids. ( About the ONLY reason to get out of bed before the sun) Why the hell would I ever set an alarm for 6 am? Thankfully, Einstein came in to remind me that I had did have SOMETHING early today. Fine Fine, I’m moving.
As the coffee began to work its magic, I remembered what I had to do…. Doctors! I managed to ATTEMPT to leave my house at 7:30. I say attempt because I couldn’t back out of my driveway without a kid appearing behind me. Oh School, I remember that! Shit that means they are trying to catch a bus, which I will no doubt get stuck behind. Whoops!
When I finally left my subdivision there were cars everywhere! Where the hell did all these people come from? Crap was I going to be late? Ugh
I did actually make it to PT on time. I even beat some of the therapists there. In the end, I did survive but I still don’t recommend it. Tomorrow I have to be on the road by 8 am again to drive an hour and a half to meet a new neurologist. Definitely not my first, second or 3rd choice, but considering it took me 3 months to get a damn appointment, I agreed to the horrendous time.
Next week I’m back to 10 o’ clock appointments. 8 o’clock appointments are for the birds!

I am up at 6 AM every weekday. It’s become habitual, but you do get used to it and enjoy the fact that nobody’s going to be bothering you for a couple hours

It’s so good to hear from you! When I was raising my kids, I do remember waking up earlier to have that alone time. Einstein gets up between 5-6 everyday though and there is no way I would go for earlier than that. I have worked ALL of the different shifts when I was working so I have never had good sleeping habits.
