1. 7am

2. Can take me 10mins to get out of bed, so alarm will sound at 6.50am and I will hit the snooze button twice. Sometimes I will wake up minutes before alarm goes off.

3. Takes me 45mins to get ready

1. Depends on the day–wednesdays and fridays I get up at 5:30 a.m. EST(that’s the earliest).  The rest fluctuates.

2. I set three alarms (one across the room at 5:25 a.m., two on my cell at 5:30 and 5:35), I usually turn the third one off b/c I’m up at the second.

3.  To shower and get dressed w/o blow drying my hair, it takes me 20 minutes. I’m at the door by 5:50 am to catch the bus to work–work starts at 6:30 am.

LOL @ the Title.

If FH is working I get up at 3:30am (at 3:20 I can hear the grinder start on the coffee maker GOd bless the grind and brew), if he’s not working then 6:00 with the boys for school.

Make breakfast for them and put lunches together while they all get ready.  Once they are all off to work/school, I start laundry and sit down and watch what ever show I missed last night because they all are watch a three year old UFC fight.  I get ready about an hour before I have to leave for work.

1) 3:30/6:30

2) There’s a snooze button?

3) About an hour and a pot of coffee.

My alarm goes off at 8am, I get out of bed around 10.30am, thus I hit the snooze button roughly 15 times each morning. Once i get up it takes me about 30 minutes to get ready, and that includes shower, hair, touch of makeup, breakfast and doing a wii fit body test. I then work 12-8 and go to bed around 1am.

This post makes me want to go back to bed!

1.  Alarm goes at 6:55 (shower) or 7:05 (no shower)

2. I actually get out of bed at 7:05 (shower) or 7:15 (no shower)…sometimes as late as 7:25

3. I’m out the door at 7:40 if I’m walking to the bus, anytime between 7:45-7:50 if Darling Husband drives me (bless his heart…he doesn’t even have to be out of bed til about 8:20…)

I do nothing at home except get ready for work – no OJ, no coffee, no cereal, no nothing – down the stairs, out the door!

1. I get up about 7:00

2. The alarm is set for 6:50 and I normally only hit snooze 1 time BUT a few times a week I might hit it 2 or 3 times to get those few extra minutes of sleep (OH HOW I LOVE SLEEP)

3. I take roughly 30-45 mins depending on if I am doing my make up or not.

1. Usually between 7:30-8. This morning I wanted to sleep to 8 but the cat would not. stop. SCRATCHING. at our bedroom door so I got up at 7:45. 

2. When I lived alone and got up earlier I was a total snooze-a-holic but now I have a Fiance and dog (and cats) that are all opposed to my sleeping so as soon as the alarm goes off everyone starts bugging me to get up. Hard to sleep anyways when you have a wet nose jabbing you in the forehead. Then there’s the dog… (jk)

3. Um… this is a two part answer lol. I work from home so on a normal day I get up, make coffee, make FI’s lunch, make my breakfast, and sit down to eat while I read the ‘bee. It takes me about 15 minutes from getting up to sitting down again. Then I just start working whenever I’m done w/ breakfast. But when I actually go out (meetings, court, if I have to go to the office later in the day), it’ll take me about 30 minutes to shower, blowdry my hair, and put on some makeup.

1. I always get up between 7 and 8 because I have to deal with my dog

2. I usually press snooze at least once 😉

3. It takes me an hour to get ready which includes everything:

  • dealing/feeding the dog
  • feeding myself
  • Showering
  • Clothes
  • Hair/Make-up

(Not necessarily in that order ;-))

I still want to play even though I have a night job.  Smile

1. I usually get up at 5pm (I go to bed around 10 or 11am, sometimes I get up at 3:30 or 4pm).

2. I usually get up when my alarm goes off because I feel like I should be up anyway.  But I often get up a minute or two before my alarm on my own.

3. I go in at midnight but it takes me about an hour to an hour and a half total to get everything ready to go, I just like to be up when my fiance gets home and to eat dinner with him.

1. The first alarm goes off at 7:15.

2. I hit snooze twice, which makes me get up at 7:25

1. What time do you get up in the morning?

I set my alarm for 6:00.

2. How long does it take you to get out of bed? Do you it the snooze button?

I end up hitting the snooze button until at least 6:20-6:30!!

3. How long does it take to get ready for work/or the day?

To get ready for work I take a shower, brush my teeth, iron my outfit, pack my lunch, take the dog out and feed our pets! It takes me anywhere from 15-35 minutes depending on what time I wake up! I have to be out the door by 7 so I can get to work by 7:30 every day!
