    Definitely B.
    I've learnt to live with disturbed sleep
    My children are all adults
    The computer runs my errands
    But, I still have to do my Housework

    A every time .... You can't function properly without sleep... but you can easily do without cleaning your house.
    Besides I only spend a max of about half an hour or so a week cleaning the house!

    B. No question about it.

    I have learned to function on a lesser amount of sleep over the years, as my disabled son needed so much care overnight. I just catch up as and when I can. My daughter looked after my son earlier today so that I could have a couple of hours doze.

    Our house, on the other hand, needs regular cleaning, and I just don't have the inclination or the energy. It does get cleaned, but I don't enjoy doing it and sometimes I get a bit behind with things. Instead of being on MSE, I really should mop the floor and put away the clean dishes - but I'll do them later!

    Another B here

    I hate housework and rarely feel like doing it. One of the (few) problems of being retired is that we are in the house more and so more cleaning is needed. I rarely get 8 hours sleep but 8 can always have a lie in.

    "A" for me without any doubt. . I dont think i ve had a solid 8 hours for years but I dont think i need it. 5 or 6 hrs seems ok. I feel fit enough on 5 hrs.
    I like house cleaning and do it properly , I like shopping and i m too old to be looking after kids but do have a few days looking after grandkids but they are usually glued to a laptop screen.

    B for me!

    I could get 8 hours sleep easily....if I went to bed at 9pm every night.

    My kid eats what he’s given. Or he goes without. (Mind you, he’s 20 now so he can cook for himself)

    Errands don’t bother me.

    But cleaning the house? I do the bare minimum needed to prevent us from dying of food poisoning, or suffocating from the dust, but even that seriously eats into my valuable loafing-around time. I’ve got a friend who gets up at 6am to do her housework, before coming into work, what’s that all about?

    I sleep really well and don't need as much as 8 hours so A is no benefit.


    My kids, although no longer living at home full time, have eaten pretty much anything since they were young so C doesn't apply.


    Do people 'run errands' any more? I certainly don't apart from food shopping, if that counts, and I enjoy that so D is a non-starter.


    I doubt I spend any more than 30 minutes on cleaning but with B I could at least look at a clean house.
