@carbear02:  Um, so my silly cat wakes me up at 5:15/5:30 every morning, i kid you not.  Most days, our routine is highlighted by my favorite Simon’s Cat video (minus the bat, of course):

🙂  The worst part of it all?  I work from afternoons to evenings, so I’m up obscenely early! 😛

Our daughter is usually up between 7-7:30 (today, she slept til almost 8:30!) and she comes and gets in our bed. We turn the TV on for her so we can snooze a little longer. Then I’ll usually drag myself out of bed after 30 minutes and fix her a cup of milk and her cheerios…and my coffee! Then I’ll get online and check FB and all the websites I frequent. If I have to work, I’ll then get a shower and get us ready to go. If not, we’ll just chill, watching Sesame Street and Curious George while we play with some toys until I decided to take a late shower and either clean up the house or we’ll go out for a couple hours!

@carbear02:  First, I get up at 6am to let the puppy outside.  Then we go back to sleep til 8:30.  Then I get up, feed her, let her out again, shower, do my hair and makeup, and this all takes about an hour if I’m being quick about it.

I usually wake early for school but the time varies.  I make coffee, put my premade lunch and coffee thermos in backpack, dress, lightly straighten hair so it’s not so crazy but still wavy, eat homemade raisin brand with flaxseed or a fruit smoothie and head out.  On my drive or morning bus ride I always listen to my good morning meditation on YouTube to put me in a focused, productive mood

I try to get up around 6-6:30 most days.  FI and I only have one bathroom, so getting up this early allows me to get in there and shower/brush my teeth/etc. before FI gets up at 7.  He usually leaves for work around 7:30, and I usually leave around 7:40.  With my job, sometimes I have to wear a dust mask or other chemical protection clothing, so I don’t really wear make-up or do my hair in the mornings.  For me, it’s usually a quick shower, get dressed, and coffee…but I’m so not a morning person so it takes me a while to get up and moving!

6:10 AM – wake up, shower

6:20 – do makeup and hair

6:35 – get dressed, feed and let the dogs out, get my lunch ready

6:50 – leave for work

We have free coffee at my work and I can eat breakfast at my desk, so that saves me some time.

6:25 – start putting on make-up while watching morning news

6:30 – 7:00 – usually the baby wakes up sometime in this range. so i’ll go get him or finish my make-up. whatever i can manage.

7:00 – 8:00 – feed the baby (bottle and solids), try to find time to get dressed, play with the baby

8:00 – 8:10 – nanny arrives, i fill her in on what she needs to know for the day

8:10 – 8:15 – gather breakfast, lunch, pack work bag, brush teeth and head to work


i feel like my schedule is all over the place and is completely dependant on my son’s mood for the day. it usually all works out though!

I wake up at 6:15. All I do is pee, brush my teeth, wash my face, put on a little bit of makeup, lotion and hair product, and throw my scrubs on. Then I feed the dog and cat, pack my lunch, and go.  It takes 15 minutes. 

I get to work early, so I eat breakfast and have my coffee there.  

I shower and pack my gym bag the night before.

Dogs wake one of us up around 6:00 am, 7 days a week (we take turns letting them out).

On weekdays, I get up around 7:30, get dressed, put on makeup (I shower at night), grab coffee and am out the door. I aim to get to work at 8:15 but some days it’s a bit later … 😉

FI is a professor so every day, every semester is different!!
