Bees with your hour commute! How do you do it? I live in small town USA and used to have a 20 mile-30 minute commute and I traded that for a 3 mile-7 minute commute. 

5:50 out of bed

Ready by 6:50/55

out the door at 7:12 for work at 7:30. 

I hate rushing as it throws my whole day off. The 20 minutes I give myself in the morning allows me time to prep dinner, read emails, pay bills, make last minute Amazon purchases, anything the will distract me the rest of the day if I don’t do it then.

The alarm starts going off at 5:00. I finally roll out of bed between 6:00 and 6:30. My drive is between 5 and 10 minutes.

ladybug55078 :  Usually I’m up at 3am. Go in at 5am. 

Lately it’s been up at 2am and go in at 3:30am. 😞

I don’t live far from my work. It’s about 10 minutes with traffic. Less than 10 with no traffic.

I wake up at 5:30 and leave the house around 6:30.  Depending on traffic, my commute averages 45 – 60 minutes.

Alarm is set for 4:45am…out the door at 5:25am.  Then its a little over an hour bus ride and I usually clock in around 6:40am.  My hours are 7:30am to 4pm but i’m so busy I always get in early. Then it normally takes anywhere between 1.5-2 hrs to get home depending on traffic.  BLAH.

Usually wake up at 2:55AM, leave the house at 3:30AM to go pick up someone we work with, and be at work for 3:55AM to punch in. Early morning hours suck.

Currently I work from home and have a flexible schedule, so I wake up whenever I want. Normally  around 8am. Next month I start my new job in a high school. I’ll be waking up at 5am and leaving at 6am, unless the bridge is closed that I take to work, in which case I’ll have to leave at 5:30am to go through the city. Start time is 7am and I’ll be done at 2:30pm. I had the opportunity to work at a different school that would have given me 9-4:30 hours but I’d rather be done early.

Darling Husband wakes up at 7, leaves at 7:15, and is at work at 8am.

I wake up around 10 or 11 am. I work from home 1-10pm most days and have no commute. Some days I am up as early as 8:30 because I start work early.

I get up at 415/430 to go to the gym before work.  My commute is 30 miles, so I try to get in as early as I can.

I’m at my desk around 7.
