Default What is your morning routine?

Or if you sleep in late, what is your routine when you wake up?

Wake up. Groan and do housework until work. When I am not working, get up freakass early and go for a walk.

I get up anywhere from 5-30 minutes after el boyfriendo... So I make the bed & go downstairs, the girls won't go downstairs until I'm up so I out Liz/Daisy/Keena out... eat breakfast & watch tv with el boyfriendo... Then put Keena up in her room & feed her, and let Rage out. Then we figure out what we're doing for the day, sometimes.

I wake up whenever Briggs gets up. I change his diaper, get him a bottle and some fruit then let the dog out for a pee. Next I feed the cat and the rest of the morning is pretty easy going. We just do what we want.

My morning usually starts with my alarm going off. The alarm is my wife shouting to the kids, "You're going to be late for school! Get up!" followed by her coming into our bathroom and cussing while struggling to get her hair just right. In the meantime, the second alarm rings, which is usually the girls fighting with each other (5 years separate my angels). The final alarm rings around 7 when there is a mass exodus from the house with several, "Hon! I'm leaving! Are you up?!" and "Bye daddy! Did you put money in my lunch account?"

Then the actual alarm clock rings and I turn it off and shower/dress. I take Xena for a walk around the school (public middle school across from my house) so she can stretch her legs and do her business. Then a quick breakfast, wash my travel mug and get my coffee. At this point I either am waiting for my ride or getting in the car to go pick up when it's my turn to drive.

Then I get to work and it's nap time, because that is an exhausting morning

Lie really really still and hope that Frodo doesn't notice I'm awake.
Grumble and whine when Ryan tried to wake me up.
Push Frodo off the bed because now he KNOWS I'm awake.
Eventually drag myself out of bed and go eat breakfast.
Sit down on the couch and be pounced on by a demon corgi who grunts and grumbles until I take him out for a walk.
Clean the rats cage and let them have floor time.
Shower.
Read or watch Supernatural until it's almost time for work.
Make lunch, get Frodo's kong out of the freezer, and tell him "Be a good boy!" as I toss it to him and walk out the door.
Pause by stairs to see if he is barking.

Do Rage and Keena not get along?

Guess Rage will just have to come and live in Minnysnowta then

Depends on the day. On days when I work in the morning (only two days a week), I just get up and get ready for work, although I try to get up early enough for the dogs to have some yard time before I have to go.

On days that I don't work until later in the day or have the day off, I usually take Pip to the dog park and either walk the youngsters or take them scootering depending on the day (we don't scooter every day), whatever minor chores need to be done, and try to have a little "hang out on the couch" time before going to work.

Wake up to Sloan squeaking and clanking her tail on her crate walls. Groan, hate life, tell Sloan to shut up. Listen to backup grumble and chew a toy, roll out of bed, open bedroom door, open crates. Sidestep, kick, duck, dodge and curse at the dogs to leave me alone and go downstairs. Follow them down, tell Sloan to stop bouncing off the glass door, open the door to the yard, usher Shamoo out, close the door. Make their breakfast, let them in, yell at them to settle down, sit still, and shut up. Feed them, head back out to pick up poop/take out trash/water plants, then proceed with my day. Sometimes it's playing with dogs, sometimes it's crating, sometimes its crawling back to bed pretending I'll get to sleep anymore. Usually it's wander upstairs, get dressed quickly, rush out the door, rush back in because I forgot something and repeat.


You see, in the mornings, I loate my Malinois. Lol
