    I’m bad I could sleep a long time (historically 10-12 would be fine for me, but I know I would waste too much of my day)  My dogs wake me up by 7 at the latest now, but I have to wake up at 6 for work now.  If I was up by 9 I’d feel fine and not like a lazy as$.

    I voted between 7 and 8 but logically 8 or 8:30 would be my ideal time. I am not a morning person, have never been a morning person and will never be a morning person. Next semester I have to wake up around 4:30 or 5 in the morning and I think I might die. I dread waking up before the sun is even up. 

    FH on the other hand wakes up at 6:30 when he doesn’t have to. I wish I was more like him in that area.

    I love sleeping in and do it whenever possible.  During the week, I have to be at work at 8:00 a.m. (sometimes earlier if we’re particularly busy), and I’m always exhausted.  I’m definitely not a morning person!

    My fiance goes to work between 5:00 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. depending on his schedule.  I don’t think I could do that!

    Fiance and I are both night owls and love to sleep in on the weekend. We’ll get up at 10 or 11 and it’s wonderful 🙂 The work week is tough since 2 days I have to get up at 445 and 4 days I get up at 7.

    Between 9 and 10 would be ideal for me.  That’s when I naturally wake up regardless of what time I go to bed.

    I think 9 AM is a reasonable time to start the day and during winter break or summer, that’s when I get up!

    Somewhere between 8 and 9 am would be perfect. We wake up at 7 to get our daughter ready for school, and I would kill for just an extra hour…

    About 9:30 am. I have a 4 year old though, sleeping in isn’t typically a luxury of mine. If she sleeps till 9:30 though, so do I

    I wake up at ~7:30 AM, and I quite like it that way. Although I am tired for the first few minutes upon waking up, I feel like I have more time to get things done the earlier I wake up.

    @mrstilly:  9:45. That’s enough time for me to grab some fruit and watch The View. If I could work from noon -6 I would be happy.

    I love 7 am because then I feel like I get more accomplished before noon… but most days I would love to sleep till 10am.

    I’m usually up by 8:30 and that’s perfect for me. At my old job, I had to wake up at 4:45 to get ready and be there by 6AM (I had a thirty minute commute)… no thank you.

    I can easily sleep until 11, but then by the time I get ready the day is half gone. I’d be ok with 9am though!
