Fiance gets up and leaves for work before me. I get up around 8am (yes, I am lucky and don’t have to wake up too early!), make the bed, make coffee, feed the cats, put away the dishes and quickly tidy the house, eat a banana, workout, shower, do my makeup/hair, then either go to work or do school – depending on what day it is 🙂

I get up at 4:30, feed the dogs and cats, walk the dogs, empty the dishwasher, pump (while I’m pumping I do hair, makeup, and brush my teeth), wash pump parts and prep bottle for husband to give baby when they wake up, clean upstairs cat box, get dressed, and out the door by 5:45!

SweetBeets :  it depends on the morning, but I typically jump up to pee and then let the dog out and feed the dog and bearded dragon. However some mornings when I feel like a tired pile of garbage I roll out of my bed and join the dog on his bed and we cuddle and sleep for another 30 minutes lol.

MissCountryGirl727 :  Yassss, let’s just quit working! My Darling Husband and I debated about playing hookey while we were getting up. But we both realized we had important things to do at work. But it was nice to daydream about not working today.

Wake up, pee, shower, put on makeup, feed the animals, then put on clothes and go. I don’t drink coffee or eat until lunch so it only takes me 30 minutes to get ready for work.

My mornings are pretty bad/awesome depending on who you ask haha.

I have to be at work at 8:30am everyday and luckily my drive is VERY short so I only need about 5 minutes to get there.

I get up at 8am. I put my clothes out the night before and shower the night before!

I wake up, pee, put my clothes on, brush my hair & style it, put my makeup on and leave. I have this down to a fine art.

Fiance works full time but he can come and go as he pleases so often starts work at 10am therefore he’s the one who feeds the cat and what not.

Simple life at the moment.

I usually wake up between 8:30  and 10am. Take my meds, put ona pot of tea and read the papers. Then I check the tv news to laugh at Trump’s latest folly. I try to be at the gym by 11:30 then I shower and decide what I will do the rest of the day.

I get up, pee, pray, do some ab exercises per my chiropractor, shower if I didn’t the night before/get dressed, and then I read my daily devotional/social media on my phone while my coffee heats up. FH gets up after me (we have opposite schedules) so he has morning dog duty. I then eat before heading off to school bright and early (I am usually out the door by 6am.)

monsterly :  lol! In some fashion or another Darling Husband and I have the same conversation nearly every morning about not going to work…but we do always go. I don’t “hate” my job, I really don’t think it matters what my job is, I’ve always hated mornings even as a kid.

I have varying start times for my job but I wake up, check work emails and check my app that tells me which of my employees are working, on time, late, etc. From there, I go use the bathroom, brush my teeth and eat breakfast.

First thing, definitely feed the dogs straight away. I have one who will scream at you (not bark) until you feed her, while they’re eating I brush my teeth, then let them out, put my tea on to boil (I’m pregnant, so no coffee for me right now, although I used to make a cup at that time). I do my makeup while the dogs are outside, then when the same dog starts screaming to come in (she’s very demanding/spoiled) I let them in, pour my tea water. Then do my hair, I usually somehow manage to wait to pee until that point. Then I get my lunch ready and pop some oatmeal in the microwave, then go drag Darling Husband out of bed (we carpool to work). He rolls out and is ready in ~5 minutes as compared to my 35 and off we go.

First alarm goes off about 10 minutes before the hour (time varies by an hour depending on day), then I hit snooze for about half an hour.  Go to the bathroom.  Go to laundry room to get clothes out of dryer.  Then wake up my girls to get them ready for school.  Give them a bath.  Hustle them along in getting dressed.  Make sure they take their meds.  Then drive them to school. 

Once I drop them off I head to Del Taco drive through for breakfast for me.  Which consists of 2 iced teas and french fries I share with the dogs.  Eat french fries on the way home and give dogs leftovers and finish first iced tea.  Now I’m officially awake and ready to start my day.
