A to Z Theme 2016
For my 2016 A to Z theme I used a meme that I ran across on the blog of Bridget Straub who first saw it on the blog of Paula Acton. This meme is a natural for me to use on my memoir blog. It's an A to Z concept and it's about me. No research and nothing complicated. I'm given twenty six questions or topics to discuss that are about me.In April I kept my posts short and uncomplicated. In the midst of it all you might learn a few things about me that you didn't previously know.

Time you woke up (#atozchallenge)
Time you woke up...
On the morning of the day this was written I woke up shortly after 5 AM. I tried to go back to sleep, but then I got up around 5:20 to get dressed and check my computer before it was time to wake up my wife at 5:30. Tomorrow I'll get up no later than 5:30. On weekdays when my wife is working she gets up at 5:30 and I'm there to wake her up.
If left to my own devices I tend to get up between 6 or 7 AM if there is not a specific reason to get out of bed. I suppose there's almost always some reason to get out of bed unless I'm real sick, but that would have to be really sick.
I don't like to just lay in bed. Sometimes I'll get into a phase where I'll lay in bed for awhile and read for thirty minutes or an hour perhaps and then get up again to do stuff. I almost always take some sort of a nap in the afternoon. It's rarely more than an hour. Usually it's more like fifteen or twenty minutes. I guess that's another time I woke up today.
But thinking on a more philosophical level maybe this question has more to do with a time in my life when I woke up in some deeper, perhaps even spiritual way. That would be more than just one time since I've woken to many things and at times wakened to the same things more than once.
Life is filled with awakenings and times of sleep. If I could sleep less I'd have more time to get things done, but then again I might just have more time to waste and when I waste too much time I usually get sleepy and go to sleep. Then I wake up and start again.
Do you have a healthy sleep cycle? Do you like a lot of sleep? Do you wake up easily?
