^^^ Yep... I was the first, not counting Mom to work a regular job...

Everyone in her side are dairy farmers so the they know all about getting up early every day.

On Dad's side all are self employed... meaning 6+ days a week being the norm.

I had my own company for 10 years and my time really was my own... drove the old folks crazy because they wanted "Better" for me... a position, benefits and retirement... all over rated in my case as with each merger/sale it gets worse...

Doing my best as a night owl it has been an adjustment getting up at 4:30 am each day... easy to get up but it has taken the creative night owl out of me.
