    What time do you go to bed on "school nights"?
    What time do you wake up?

    I'm struggling with going to bed at a reasonable time. I have to be up by 5:15 but can't bring myself to get to bed early.

    Last year I would go to bed between 12:30 and 1:30 and be up around 6:15.

    This year I am working on getting to bed earlier...in the bed by midnight and sometimes even earlier. I am getting up earlier, though, at 5:55.

    I aim for 9pm, but that's not typically realistic. We are definitely in bed by 10pm though. We get up at 5:40.

    I require a lot of sleep...:D

    Last year I didn't go to bed until around 12. I'm trying to get myself in bed a little earlier this year-I think I'll shoot for 11 first. I've been getting up around 6:30.

    I try to get into bed by 10 and read until I fall asleep. I set my alarm for 6:15 and get up by 6:30. I have a hard time waking up if it's not already light outside no matter how many hours of sleep I got.

    I try to be in the bed by 11:00. I usually watch the news and then fall asleep sometime between 11:30 and 12:30.

    I get up sometime between 6:00 and 6:30, depending on what time I wake up. I set my alarm for 6:30, although I'm almost always awake before then.

    I'm quite a night owl. Even on school nights, I stay up until maybe 11-11:30pm. These days I wake up at 6:30 most days & also 6:15.

    Bed between 10-10:30
    Wake up between 5:45-6:20 - depending on how many corners I want to cut in the morning!

    Last year I went to bed between 11 and 12, and I'd get up at around 6:30.

    This year my goal is to go to bed at 10. We'll see! :)

    We need to leave by 7 this year, which means up at 6. So logically that should mean bed by 10, as we need 8 hours. But I love to stay up. It's very hard to get myself to go to bed.

    I try to be ASLEEP by 10:30 which means I like to be in bed or getting there by 10 (BF and I rub each others' backs with the massager a lot before we go to sleep). If I am up later than that I at least try to be showered and in PJs and relaxing.

    I am up at 5:30. I have to leave by 6:45 to be in my classroom by 7:15. I try not to jump on the computer (like I am now) but instead do something around the house like unload the dishwasher or something. It helps wake me up.

    Don't be embarrassed, Starista-I'm many years from being pregnant, and during the first week of school I wish I could go to bed at 7:30!

    I am in bed around 9:30 reading until 10 then lights out. I am up at 6/ 6:30, hit the floor running. I like to get the house in order before I leave so when I get home I can just worry about making dinner.

    Last year I would aim for 10, but usually get into bed at 11 and wake up....well ok, I started the year getting up at 6 am....then it kinda morphed into 6:30 and then by May I was getting out of bed at 7. I did make it to work by 7:55. And yes, I did shower daily!!!:D

    This coming year our start time has been moved to 9:15, but I would still like to get to work at 7:55.

    I'm in bed most nights by 10-I watch Nancy Grace and usually fall asleep between 11-11:30. Up at 7, out the door at 7:30. I shower at night so I can get the extra sleep in the morning...:)
