@jesssamesssa:  we typically go to bed anytime between 10:00-11:30pm depending on how tired we are. DH wakes up at 7:30 and I get up at 8:30.

I try to be in bed by 11, but really most nights it’s midnight.  Alarm goes off at 6, I get up at 6:30 (unless I was too lazy to shower the night before, then I get up at 5:30 to shower and dry my hair etc etc).

So, somewhere between 5-7 hours?

I’d love to get 8+ a night but I’ve found that if I sleep 8-10 hours I feel groggy and slow the next day.  The days I’ve functioned best I get 4-5 hours…but I also have a really hard time telling myself I’ll feel ok the next day on 4 hours of sleep and therefore can’t convince myself it’ll be ok and I should stay up haha.

I go to bed on average between 11:30pm-12:30am and wake up at 6:00am.

On a good night, I get 6-7 hours of sleep.

@jesssamesssa:  I am a morning person, but I married a true night owl whose whole family (including his children) also are night owls.  I USED to go to bed between 11 p.m. and 12 a.m. and get up at 6-6:30 a.m., depending on my schedule.

NOW, to keep up with and spent time with DH, I sometimes don’t get to bed until 1 or 2 a.m., and I still usually wake up at 6 something.  I definitely do not get enough rest.
