    It’s 6:20 here. After sleeping with my wife in the bed for 12 years, it’s hard to get use to sleeping alone again. I haven’t been to sleep yet.

    I get up with my wife at 4 to make sure she gets up for work. Yeah, it sucks.

    0530 L ... the only good thing on being on the early shift.. is getting out of work early.

    Hell, most days I don't have to be at work until 11

    I love "sleeping in" but a) I don't sleep anyways and wake up around 4 AM and b) I hate getting off work so late every night.

    0400 - 0500 most days. Usually closer to 0500, but I've been having a bout of insomnia recently and have been getting up at odd hours. 0230 was the earliest, so far.

    I'd hate to get up at 0430...that would suck. I have to get up at 0530 for work and that is a 12 hour day as well so by the time I get off work and home I'm usually pretty beat.

    I know it's said that you can't catch up on sleep, but I'm one of those who think you can. I usually try to get in some real good naps on the weekend (by naps I mean "sleep" for 3 or 4 hours). When I get up from those I feel great!

    It's the 12 hour days that kill me...good thing they're infrequent for me. Heck even a full 8 hour day does me in, I like the days where I have 4-5 hour days of actually "leave the house work".

    Just like anything else , you'll get use to it. I been getting up at 4 am for 10 years now. What sucks is I can't even sleep in on the weekends now I'm so use to it *lol*
