Clash of the Titans

The ear doctor and I are stopped at an impasse. We were wondering what time the average person gets up in the morning. Please, help us settle this debate. What time do you wake up in the morning? Is it closer to 6am or closer to 7am?

I suppose I am of no help whatsoever, since I get up at 6:30am.

As late as my children let me get up! Usually around 7.

CMO said...

The answer is definitely 6:30. So, is that closer to 7:00 or closer to 6:00? Hmmmm.

i get up at 5:45.

Anne said...

I get up at 7:27 (that's the time it is when my snooze alarm goes off for the third time)

I'm no where near average! I get up around 8:00 sometimes 9:00. That's the beauty of working in Broadcasting... work doesn't start until 10:00!!

I'm a nightowl by nature.

I always wished I was a morning person, but I'm most assuredly not. 7:35, to get to work by 8:15.

im a sahm and i normally get up around 10, lately its been a lot later than usual

Melinda said...

If it was up to me 7. But since our children rule our lives during the school week, it is about 6:15. Bleh.

Heather said...

I get up when the munchkin does. It varies between 7-8:30. My husband on the other hand is lucky if he leaves the house for work before 9. Which means he never gets out of bed before 8:30

So, I'm going to go with closer to 7. My mom would bring that average considerably lower though since she gets up at 4 most days. She is also crazy.

6:30 for work.

More like 8 on the weekends.

sarah said...

Closer to 7 for me. 5:30 (in theory!) for my husband.

Greeneyes said...

5:30 for my ever loving job, so closer to 6 am. 8 or so on the weekends. I think the timing depends on your particular motivation for getting up...

Kari said...

Usually 5:30...some days 5 (if I am busy at work)...usually at work before 7. On weekends...usually sleep in until 7.

Closer to 8:00! I live 3 minutes from work and I get in the office around 8:30...

4:21 a.m., hit the snooze one time and am up at 4:30 a.m.

My husband is up at 5 for work, I'm usually up at 515 so I can get a shower and 10 minutes to myself, and my sweet children wake up around 6. I keep hoping that some day they will learn to sleep in ( there is no reason whatsoever for them to be up so early) but so far they are early birds.

I figure they'll start wanting to sleep in about the time they have to start getting up at a set time every morning. :-)

5:30-ish....

I was raised in a house where if you slept in past 8 you had wasted your day...

Nicola said...

I get up at 5:00 (a hideous time of day by the way) but my office opens at 6:30 and I like to get there early so I can leave at 3:00! Oh the joys of working for the federal government!

Lindsay said...

During the week? 5:30. (except when I'm ultra tired and stay in bed until 8. Seriously, how do people without flexible work schedules SURVIVE?)
Weekends? 9:30ish.

Unfortunately, 6am so I can get my Kindergartener to school that starts at 7:45am. I miss the days when I got to sleep until something more like 7am because my kids didn't wake up until 7:30 or 8am.
