Mr Chiots and I are TIRED! Sunday we spent the day working in Cleveland arriving home in the wee hours of the morning We slept in until 7, but that wasn’t nearly enough sleep. It’s hard to sleep in though when you’re used to getting up early. We were up until 9 pm last night working on the upstairs and fell into bed not soon after. Only a few more busy weeks and then rest will come.

That’s yours truly as a wee little lassie. This photo pretty much sums up what I’m feeling like right now. Good news is, we already have a viewing being scheduled for the house next week, which gives us the much needed motivation to keep going!

Are you an early riser or a night owl?

    I’m usually up between 5 and 5:30 but in bed by 9. If I do stay up later I sometimes sleep until 6 but that is about it.

    Oh that photo screams tiredness.
    Is it sad that I’m both an early riser AND a night owl?
    Normally I’m up till 1~2AM, and I wake up at 5~6AM… And yes, I’m exhausted all of the time. Heh.

      WOW – I bet you are tired all the time. Mr Chiots used to be a night owl and I was a very early riser. We kind of meet in the middle, to bed at 11 pm and up at 6 am.

    The military and farming taught me to be an early riser, 5:00. I enjoy the early morning hours to myself before my family and the farm awakes. This time of year, with canning, gardening and butchering, I’m rarely in bed before midnight. A 20 minute power nap in the afternoon does wonders.

    What an adorable photo.. I go to bed tired and I wake up tired.. There is no such thing as too much sleep in my opinion, but I dont get much of it.
