Ugh, I hate when that happens, it ruins the day.

Up at 5:15, late to bed last night.

Trouble getting up this morning, I blame the inventor of the snooze bar.

A safe sober day to all.

Stargazer, you have your own monitor where you work? After a vacation, I change my monitor picture to one from the vacation I got just back from.

Since I have two monitors, one I work at and the other I can look at a fun time. When work is boring or I have a tough day, as I look at the picture, I remind myself that this job paid for that vacation! And it's going to pay for the next one--which is usually scheduled. I just always have a trip booked.

Up at 0422. Great day so far!

Chloe, being alone doesn't have to be lonely. Let us know how you're doing.

Up at 3:30am with strange dreams.
My anxiety level has been high lately. It is really making me tired. Anyway, another sober day for me.

Have the water going on the front yard. The sprinkler system is shot in front so I hooked a hose up to the city water. Thankful the back can be watered off the well. It’s huge and would cost a fortune to keep up.

Today will be relaxing till work at 3:00.

A safe sober day to all.

Up at 2:18 am. Early day of work and did not sleep well last night. I am always worried about over sleeping on my early days, which affects my sleep. (Even though I set multiple alarms on my phone.).

Have a good day all!

Snooze buttons - Luv'm or hate'm? I set my alarm for 4:45 but rarely do I get up on the first bell.

Happy Friday the 13th!

I hate the sound of alarm clocks so I get up before I have to hear it go off! So no snooze for me
Light sleeper or sound sleeper?

Most nights, a sound sleeper. But only becasue I wear hearing protection at night. The slightest noise will wake me up. I think that's due to years and years of sleeping with a pager under my pillow. (I use to be on call 24/7).

It’s nice to be up early today. There is a cat in my backyard stalking mice. I have some in the raised garden bed that need to go away. I’m afraid the squirrels will get poisoned or trapped if I try to dispose of them.

I don’t like alarms in the morning. I used them for 29 years of working at the PO. Yuck! Lucky I work part time in the afternoon now.

Happy it is Friday.
Have a safe sober day.

Good for you Imvalentine. Not including high school, I'm in my 43rd year of waking to an alarm.

No I haven't tried a weighted hula hoop, Dragon, but I'd like to!

Light sleeper who wears ear plugs.

Up at 0424.
