Do you shower in the AM or the PM?

I've done both, but lately I like taking a shower in the morning to wake myself up.

Problem is, I came to the disturbing realization that coming home after a day of surgery and hopping right into bed sans shower means the scum of the earth is between my sheets :(

I shower in the morning. If I don't, I feel icky and have a hard time waking up. The only exception is if I am going camping. For some reason then I can wake up anyway. I think it's the cold air.

You wake up feeling filthy? What have you been doing all night? :p

The thing is, if I don't shower in the evening, I feel filthy. Blood spatters, food smells, whatever is on the seat on my bus ride, the insides of my socks, dust in the wind... all tumbling into bed with me. Ugh!

But then if I shower in the evening, I have to figure out what to do with wet hair.... :sleep:

In the AM, also had a past tradition of taking a shower at work before doing autopsies. But never after, because I make a point out of not getting ANY blood on me when working ;)

I prefer showering in the morning because it helps me wake up. But sometimes as deschutes says, I feel gross at the end of the day. Then I take a shower at the end of the day. On weekends, sometimes I even take them in the middle - crazy, huh? :)

I don't like showers in the winter because my skin is so dry. I have to slather on all sorts of oils and creams that a 10 minute shower turns into 30 minutes. And that's not counting washing my hair, which would add on 10-15 minutes of shower time, plus any time to dry/style if I'm so inclined. If I let it air dry, it turns into a big poof ball.

I do love baths in the evenings. Squirt some lavendar baby oil in the water and I'm set.
