What is your "wakeup routine" in the morning?

For me, it's a cigarette and a soda, and then I'm moderately functional!

  • I get the kids ready for school about 6:30 and then they leave. Go back to bed, and then get up later. I will start breakfast, do chores, make phone calls write letters. Then the rest of the day is free time.

  • Alarm goes off, I literally pop right out of bed, go to the bathroom, brush my teeth and wash my face...after all that, I'm good to go. I usually take a shower the night before.

    6:30 Get up, let the dog out to potty, go upstairs and wake the kids up
    6:40 Let the dog in
    6:45 Remind the kids that they need to wear pants/shorts (depending on the weather)
    7:00 Tell the kids and dog to quieten down, there are still people sleeping
    7:10 Feed the dog and cats, talk/play quietly with the kids
    7:30 Double check the kids' backpacks and make sure they are ready, pull lunches out if they are taking that day
    7:45 Start watching for the bus, start smelling the automatic coffee maker making my yummy goodness life force stuff
    8:00 Drink coffee while sitting in front of the computer on CafeMom

  • Alarm goes off at 6. I hit snooze till 7:03. get up, bathroom, make coffee. Go cuddle the youngest, and the oldest, each for a moment to wake them up. Grab coffee, go get dressed. Turn on the UV lamp for the lizard and start the shower heating up. Go wake the kids again cause they've probably fallen asleep again, get dressed. Put my lunch together, give my oldest a goodbye through the bathroom door while he showers, take youngest to school. Be at work by 8 and make a second cup of coffee there.

    About 8:30 I become human.

  • My cat is my alarm and the snooze button consists of me pushing her off the bed and burying myself under my covers. This starts at about 7:30 and continues with her trying to get at me for about a half hour until finally I can't stand it and get up and feed her, my husband is up by then and he has taken care of the dog. I use the bathroom, brush my teeth, wash face, then go and turn on the lights to the fish tanks and feed them. Then I go and drink a cup of cold coffee lol and maybe eat breakfast if I feel like it. I read a little, go through my email, and once I am awake I clean something, like this morning my bathroom lol thats about it.
