Old habits never die, some just fade away.

I get up at 5AM the gurgle of the coffee pot wakes me up.
Breakfast at 6AM
If Ms. G isn't around eat at 11AM
Snooze for 15 min
Have a cup of joe
Go to go till dinner at 5:30 or 6PM
In bed around 9PM get my 8 hours.
I get up at 5AM the gurgle of the coffee pot wakes me up.

It took me almost three years to break that damned 5AM habit, finally got adjusted to about 8:30AM.

I can definitely relate to this, as I'm sitting here at work, sick as a dog! I'd much rather be curled up in bed or on the couch watching tv! Fortunately, in about 45 mins I will be!

I haven't stood the 0600-1200 watch in nearly two decades but I'm still I'm usually up between 3-4 AM for a prewatch tour. Of course now my lunch naps are a big improvement on my watchstanding days.

Have you considered moving to a different time zone?

You'll have to spend a few weeks in my time zone before considering living in another one!

Part of the problem is that I find it very hard to sleep for longer than six hours at a stretch while spouse tends to be the "early-to-bed, late-to-rise" type. I'd rather stay in synch with her evening habits so I end up getting up early.

I'm not too far out of sync with you Mainland morning persons... and it's interesting to watch the blog start firing off posts, Tweets, Facebooks, and e-mails at 5 AM.

My girlfriend is married to an architect who goes to bed at 8 pm and gets up at 4 am everyday. Glad it's her not me.
