So are you a morning person or a night owl? I tend to be a morning person as I can get a ton of work done before most people get up. No phones, no distractions like TV, no one to bug you. I just get up and get on the computer that never shuts off and get my blogs done, my clients emailed, my searches done. Then when the paper comes I read for a bit, hop in the shower, and off I go.
Of course I am dead by 8PM! I don't have an issue with it, but I am ready to go to bed early, around 9:30 or 10 and miss a lot of good TV shows. By Friday night I am pretty whipped and usually fall asleep after dinner on the couch. Works for me!
My wife, who claims she is a morning person and is not, gets annoyed that I fall asleep on the couch. But I am good with it. Bring on the sunrise and a good cup of coffee on a summer morning and I am good to go!
