I think that in many cases we have our own routines with
time. Some of us are early. Some of us are late. Some of us hurry and some of us dawdle along.
I am one of those annoying people who has to get to an event early. If church starts at 10:30 , I've got to be sitting down before 10:15. I get pretty antsy and a little testy if I'm not ahead of the game.
I'm also one of those people who doesn't set an alarm clock. Since about 1980 , I always get up at 7:00 AM. Even after I retired I still get up at 7:00 AM. I also haven't worn a watch since the day I retired.
Now there's someone else in this house who has a completely different pattern of rising from sleep. No, she doesn't sleep in. It's worse than that.
For about 4 to 6 months , the micro Manager will get up late...8:00 Am. Then for another 4 to 6 months the MM will get up early...6:00 AM. Now I don't care how early you get up. I don't care how late you get up. Just choose one or the other and stick with it. I can adapt my routine either way.
I often wonder how I can get up at the same time without an alarm clock. I'm starting to wonder if it's about coffee time. My body tells me that at 7:00 AM I need coffee so I get up! Or have I just developed a habit of rising at 7:00 Am over the years.
I also spent all of my working years watching the clock. When the bell went I had to be finished my lesson and send the kids on.
So how many of you have specific habits of keeping time? Do you have to keep a set time routine to be happy?
So I got thinking about these things after my last post about how time goes by so rapidly.
