I am not a morning person. If I could set my sleep schedule I would sleep in until 8 or 9 every day. This is not as late as I used to think I would, but much better than my normal wake up time.
My husband and I carpool to work, since up until today we only had one car. Since he is a high school teacher his classes start before mine, so I have to leave earlier than if I were driving myself to work.
We currently live about 40 minutes away from where I teach, and my husband teaches 20 minutes past my school. This means I end up at school at 7:00 when school doesn’t start until 8:20. This isn’t so bad, except it means that we have to leave by 6:20am.
This is made worse by the fact that I must wake up by about 5:20. The only reason I wake up in the morning is because of my ever patient husband. He gently coaxes me out of bed, and reminds me that I have a limited time before we have to leave the house. After about 10 minutes, I can generally get myself up.
We are planning to move closer to both our jobs in about a month, and I can’t wait! I will probably be at work around the same time- I must admit I enjoy the quiet- but it will be nice to not have the 40 minute commute. I know I will enjoy an extra half hour or so to sleep in =)
