    I am up at 5:30 to leave the house by 5:55/6:00 am  I have to be at work by 6:30.  I always give myself enough time just in case.  Plus I hate clocking in and starting right away.   I have to get settled first.

    I leave around 8:30 to get to the office by 9/9:15.

    Although I only have 1 week left of work and after that I will be rolling out of bed and right into packing tape/boxes/etc to pack up the apartment.

    @brideatbeach: There are days I love it because I am out by 3, but then I hate it because I’m up so damn early.  Hah.  I guess getting out at 3 is a major plus.

    I voted 7am since that’s what time we should be leaving but it almost never happens. Fiance and I work for the same company so considering he’s the absolute worst in the morning, we normally head out around 7:30. We have a 45 minute commute (without traffic) so we’re almost always late. Thankfully we work in a pretty relaxed work environment and our bosses don’t even notice/care if we’re late.

    Oh my good Lord, 6:30 is like the middle of the night for me! When I was temping and I had to be at an office by 8 it was torture. Sheer Hell. Lol I work from home now luckily, but I don’t hit my stride until around 10:30.

    @brideatbeach: I may be starting a 12 hour shift position soon though so I’d be working 7-7:30.  Ugh.

    My hours are flexible.  If I have an early meeting at 8:30a, I’ll need to be on the road by 7:30ish.  On other days, I leave between 9-10:30a. It gets me out of driving in rush hour traffic.  I don’t usually leave work til about 6:30 to 7:30p.

    We leave between 7 and 8 depending on what we have on (I drop Fiance to the station on the way to the office) and I have about a half hour commute. I can start anytime before 10, but like PP, the earlier I start the earlier I get my work done and the earlier I can head home!!

    Usually I can get a run in in the evening before I drive back down to pick up the Mister!

    I make my own hours. I don’t like to be at the office before 10am. Sometimes I don’t go in till after lunch but then I stay late. Owning your own business has its perks for sure. 🙂
