Waking Up Early Is Hard To Do

Updated on August 6, 2015

A Change Of Plans

It is funny how we get set in our ways

Doing our daily routine

Getting up at our normal time

From eating breakfast to lunch

Even supper right on schedule

Day after day

Week after week

If we are not feeling well or extremely tired

Occasionally we might run late

Other than that it's pretty much the same

Unless there is a big change in our lives

In this case my wife had training at her job

So for the next two weeks her hours are complety opposite

She has to get up at five A.M.

To be on the road by Six

We usually work nights

So this is a real change

Going to bed at ten o'clock at night

After eating supper and watching the news and a couple of shows

I have always worked nights my whole life

So to be up before the sun with my wife

Is really unusual

My eyes are heavy and I have a slight headache

It's only been one day

Now I know why so many people are cranky

Studies show we are suppose to work during the day and sleep at night

It's our biological clock

If you alter that scientists say you take years off your life

I am not sure about that

My wife has to get on the road to avoid morning traffic

She only gets a touch of rush hour

If she hits rush hour

Then her smooth drive

Turns into number to bumber

Cars cutting in and out

That could take her an extra fifteen minutes

Even when we go on vacation we still stay up late and sleep in the morning

My wife says sure soon as I leave you are going right back to bed

She might be right

Right now it's almost impossible for me to type

I'm not hungry

But I think I will eat

So for all you early birds

Who make your living working the early morning shift or even nine to five

You can have it

It's for the birds

Give me till nine thirty or ten

When I can roll out of bed

I may not get an earl start

I feel a lot happier and I am more likely to enjoy my day

When I leave my house there are only a few cars on the road

If I go to any store

It looks deserted

I am not sure what I will do today

What I am sure of

Is right now I am a walking, talking live Zombie

Now I have proof they do exsist

Before now I thought the whole Zombie craze

Was absolutely rediculous

Wrong again I see

I will admit before now it's a thought I could not phathem

The sun is shining

My eyes really do hurt

I already had enough for one day

My wife was right

I am going back to bed for awhile

When I awake

I hope to be my chipper self

At least my eyes will open all the way

I will feel like eating and I can't wait

To welcome this wonderful day

      Gypsy Rose Lee I have worked nights for the past thirty two years. My body craves getting up at ten or eleven.that still only gives me six hours of sleep a night, I try to get up early but my body says no way. I try quick cat naps during the day. They work wonders. So twenty minutes here or there makes me feel like Under Dog. I am ready to take on the world. Thank you for reading and sharing. I am so happy to see your thoughts. Have a super day,

      I am most inspired and do my best work at night. I am one miserable person if someone says you have to be up early. I usually love it that I can write and think and work as long as I want and then I don't have to worry about getting up at any specific time. I remember when I lived in NYC I hated getting up early especially on cold, dark winter mornings. I would get dressed, even put on my coat, then fall back onto the bed just to get a few extra seconds of shut eye before heading out the door. By noontime at work I'd be wide awake.

      How appropriate to accept changes and be willing to adjust to unpredictable and remain calm and sound. Pattern worth to follow.

      Voted beautiful, interesting.
