    Last year I waited, but this year I get up at 3:30 am to take my hubby to work, so I go to bed really early. I check at 3:30 though to get my juices flowing.

    I wait up! Only for an hour and then if it doesn't post I go to bed.

    I usually am up late, so I check before bed. Here lately, though, it's been either or and sometimes both!

    I go to bed with the chickens because I get up at 5, so I usually check as soon as I get up in the morning. Then I have the day to think about it at work. It's going to get real interesting for the rest of the month because I will have to be out until almost bed time with DS 2 days a week. I will be playing a lot of catch up I'm sure.

    Oh my gee ... I'm so surprised at how many people get up early by choice! Maybe it's because I don't go to bed until around midnight. Seriously, my alarm goes off at 6:15 and I make 500 excuses why I should hit the snooze alarm. On a typical day I get the troops wrangled and off to their respective destinations and I'm at work by 8:00 ... but I would totally sleep in until 9am if I didn't have to be at work leading meetings.

    Early riser. And, the MOC Challenge forum is the first thing I check when I wake up these days.

    It's the first thing I check in the morning on my phone before I get up around 6am EST. I also like to check in throughout the day from work and think about the challenge. I love seeing all the different ideas people have. Sometimes I get an idea right away and plan my page all day in my head until I can get home and get a chance to get started!

    I'm definitely a get-up and look in the morning. I have to go to work by 6:45 am so I cannot stay up until midnight or I'd be worthless the next day. :giggle

    Chronic pain + fibro + migraines means my internal clock is busted, so one day I might wake up at 4am, another I might not fall asleep until then. I have a bad habit of surfing on my iPad in bed, so this month, I'm keeping a browser window permanently pointed at the gallery and I hit refresh-refresh-refresh...!

    I'm pacific time- so some of the early ones are posted at 9pm my time- I love that! ;) I usually look before I go to bed, so I have time to think about what I want to do or how to tackle the challenge. I often don't get to scrap until after kids go to bed the next night- so lots of thinking time! :D

    I check first thing, one advantage of being 7 hours ahead of the USA, sometimes I am lucky and it has been posted, other times I stalk the gallery until it's there.

    I was away for 5 days now and am all caught up and patiently/not so patiently waiting for day 15.

    I love when the challenge is posted before I go to bed so I can ponder what pictures and how I will scrap the layout. But if it’s not posted before I go to bed then it is one of the first things I check when I wake up.

    One time in the past I stayed up after midnight to check and finally went to bed because I sure am not a night owl . For whatever reason, that person had a personal issue and the challenge came later in the day. I'm usually in bed by 10 and up by 6 so that's just fine with me!

    I am definitely a night owl but that doesn't matter since I am in the wrong timezone! :compcoffee
    So I check in the morning and if the challenge host is an early bird I can read it when I have my breakfast.

    In past years, I was anxious and I was caught up. This year I am sort of meh and check when I turn the computer on, which some days has been very late in the day. At one point I was 10 days behind. As of right this minute, I am only 2 days behind. But I am going to go walk and then fix dinner and then try to get those last pages done to catch up.
