Wake up?

Are you like an MGM musical in the morning...singing and dancing?

Or

Are you like the Terminator..."Don't get between me and my target (the morning cup of coffee) or I will destroy you?"

Ditto. Shower and a cup of tea.

I fall somewhere in between a musical and the Terminator. I'm definitely more Terminator if my little boy gets up before me and I have to have company with everything that I do. I need my quiet time in the shower. Alone!

I'm just silent and won't talk to anyone for 45 minutes after I wake up...Then I'm my normal, chipper happy self.

I'm a little Terminator - especially on work days.

I wake up pretty happy. When I get up early, I may drag a little bit, but it does not effect my mood. Usually, I could wake up singing: "Good Mornin', Good Mornin'"...except my wife, the night owl, would kill me.

Usually pretty happy, my son snuggles into bed with us and we wake up playing. Great way to start a day!!

I'm usually happy in the mornings, very tired, but happy. My morning shower helps get me going and then I start the singing and dancing.

I take after my father. We wake up in the morning and start some happy whistling. It's going to be a good day! In fact, Dad was once in a fist-fight in his Army barracks because of his habit of waking up all jolly and happy. I guess some of the men didn't take too kindly to some jerk whistling at 4:30 in the morning. Come to think of it, my husband ain't too fond of it either!!

OK, Z, I'm fairly sure we're twins separated at birth.

I'm not good in the morning. Do not talk to me.I need peace and quiet. DH wakes early and cheery I love to sleep till 8 or 9 so waking up is very hard during the week. Plus it's so nice and warm in the bed.

That's like me, but I usually take my shower at night, and I have two boys and a girl.

I'm up alone in the early morning - thats my time alone- to do my exercises, read, clean and relax - if someone happens to invade my space then I am the terminator.

Absolutely love the morning. Up between 4 and 4:30, have coffee, watch TV and relax before work.

Singing and dancing (but very quietly, so I don't wake up everyone else)!

Definitely the terminator. I hate to be talked to when I first get up for about 45 minutes. I have always felt kind of weird about it too. You would think after 25 years together, my husband would figure out to leave me alone in the mornings, but he wakes up like Chatty Cathy!

I used to be grouchy and had "just leave me alone!" syndrome. Then, I got a puppy (mini-dach) who sleeps with my husband and me and he loves to cuddle and play in the morning. Puts me in the best mood!
