The more I sit around the more tired I get. I can imagine it's similar with retirement.

What time do you wake up? Most people I know who are retired still wake up at 5 or whatever it was when they were working.

I can't sleep late either. I try. Once my eyes open, I'm up and moving. I usually get to work 30-60 minutes early because of it.

My work week consists of Monday and Tuesday then Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Then the next week is only Wendsday and Thursday. So in 14 days I only work 7. My day starts when the alarm goes off at 4am. I have a shower and get lunch ready then leave for work by 5am. I stop and grab a coffe at 7-11 and arrive at work aprox. 5:40. I get changed into my coveralls then go and see what is messed up out on the plant floor. Most days are pretty quiet and quiting time is 6:00pm. home by 6:45pm.
Kinda nice tto work this type of shift as I get a long weekend every second week and have time off in the middle of the week, so scheduling appointments and stuff is good too.

Copious amounts of vodka sometimes help me sleep till 6 or 7 AM.

I always keep my eyes closed when I wake up hoping for more minutes of bliss.

I work Monday through Friday But go in very often on the weekends to catch-up. We are open 8:30 to 5:30 except I do hospital rounds before and after work so thats more like 6:30am to 8:00pm. I am self employed so during that time I do surf the web and work on notes and compliance.
I don't know when or if I'll retire as I truly enjoy what I do with the exception of dealing with insurance companies and the government. They make me work twice as hard, charge twice as much and profit 1/2 as much.

I work 4 days week, 4am-3pm on Monday, then Tues-Thurs I work 4:30am-3pm
Alarm goes off at 3am, usually try to talk the wife into a little slap & tickle, usually she kicks me in the shin and tells me to go to work. So I get up, eat a little something and am out the door. Stop at the gas station for a cup of coffee.
Do my thing at work, then go home, eat dinner, kick the dog, pet the wife, harass the kids...whatever. Try to be in bed by around 10pm so I can get at least 5 hours of sleep.
