Me: I think I'm a morning person.
Hubby: (bursts out laughing) Are you serious?
Hubby: Are you just now figuring that out?
Me: What's that supposed to mean?
Hubby: You've been a morning person for years now.
Me: (in complete denial, shaking my head) No I haven't been.
Hubby: (still laughing) Yes you have. And you definitely still are one.
Me: NO I'M NOT!! I HATE morning people. They're all perky and "Hello, morning! How amazing is this day?!" and shit. I am NOT a morning person. I don't want to be a morning person!
Hubby: (still laughing) Baby, you're a morning person. You wake up at the ass crack of dawn, make coffee and immediately start working. And, you can't stay up past 10 at night. You are a morning person.
Me: I just like the quiet in the morning, thank you. And I like my sleep at night.
Hubby: That makes you a morning person.
Me: Shut up!
Hubby: (still laughing) I can't believe you are just now figuring this out.
Me: Shut up!! I don't WANT to be a morning person, dammit!
I've fought it for days now, since our conversation. Every time I come up with a logical explanation,
my brain goes and plays devil's advocate...
Reveille wakes me up at 7 (we live on a military base). That's why I get up so early.
(Reveille doesn't happen on the weekends, though.)
(But you fall asleep just fine, and sleep through the night. You just wake up early. That's not insomnia.)
I HATE getting up that early, but it just happens.
(The coffee you make when you get up doesn't "just happen". The work you happily do once you get up doesn't "just happen". The fact you completely enjoy the quietness of the house doesn't "just happen".)
I naturally wake up somewhere between 6:30 and 7:30 and get out of bed to start work, in a quiet house, enjoying my coffee.
Dammit, that makes me a morning person.
There's no use fighting this anymore. Admitting it is the first step, right?
Hi. My name is Morgan, and I'm a morning person.
It pains me. I WANT to be the night person I used to be; stay up until 2 or 3 in the morning, roll out of bed at 10. My kids are homeschooled now; Hubby works an evening shift- WE CAN BE NIGHT PEOPLE!
But no. Not me. I'm a morning person.
