@tonylegrone Same, except it’s two dogs that pounce on me anywhere between 6-6:30. Sometimes they try at 5:30, but I shut that down. During the week, I’m just up from that point, but on the weekends I will go back to sleep and then set an alarm for 10.
When I don’t have to work I stay up later but my alarm is set for 6:30AM weekdays and 7AM weekends. On weekends I get less sleep but I find that keeping a similar schedule makes it easier to wake up every day. I only nap if I’m sick.
Monday through Saturday pretty much 7am sharp (sometimes as early as 6am though) foundation workers (apartment building so this has been going on a while and will continue for a while longer) and the racket they make. Baring that the backyard neighbors put their dogs out to bark somewhere between 6:30 and 7am daily.
I usually don’t set my alarm on my days off, but that usually only means maybe an extra 15-20 minutes of sleep. If the pets don’t wake me wanting food/let out, then I just naturally wake up around the same time anyway.
I forget to turn all of the alarms on my phone off. That’s why. However, I leave the phone on the other side of the house on weekends so I don’t hear all of the notifications from the family texts, therefore, I miss a lot of alarms.
Since I work second shift (1445-2315) I do not generally need to set an alarm… ever. The only time I do is if I have to work a double overnight then go back in with less than 8 hours off. Off days are “get up whenever” days.
