now no-one is working is it acceptable to be a night owl in your house?


I always have trouble living with other people when they work because i never sleep normal hours. Now no-one is working i could easily be living with someone.

I've been a night owl my entire life. However, there have been times when I've been unable to practice night-owlism. Not too long ago I had a job that required that I report for duty at 5 am. Nope, can't stay up until 2 or 3 in the morning if one has to be there by 5 if one prefers not to be a zombie. It was nice when our team lobbied for and won a different schedule. Still couldn't be a night owl every night, but it was better.

5am is also a great time.

i just can't commit to any sleeping pattern.

Occasionally 5 am is a great time - especially in summer.

I readily admit my sleeping patterns have become pretty erratic lately with this virus lockdown. There's no point to getting up at a reasonable hour - there's no place to go, really. Just hang around the house and go for a walk at some point in the day. Otherwise, keep busy with stuff around the house.

You just have to be warm...

yeh theres always something you can do. you can just look at the sun or the stars. it doesn't really matter.

I'll be happier when it gets warmer here, the grass greens up, the trees start popping new leaves, and I can be outside, relaxing on the patio, gazing at the sky. I'm looking forward to that time.

i find myself spending more time staring at screens sometimes they can still be translucent. okay maybe i should look at the sun more often.

I know what you mean. Of all times, I retired 2 weeks ago - right as the you know what hit the fan. I worked from home, so I'm used to being here all day, but now I don't have any work to do and I'm having a hard time keeping track of the days.

reply

I'm retired now too, so used to being home a lot, but it's a different feeling when you know you HAVE to stay put. And like I said in another post, it's the not knowing how long it will be. If you have a timeline of some kind, you can gear yourself up for it, count down the days or whatever helps you get through it. But when you don't know, it's torturous.

A timely retirement.
