Depends on the day for me. On day shift its up at crack of dawn thirty, into the shower, feed the fuzzies, make lunches for kiddos, power down coffee and race out the door. (Hopefully I've managed to remember to put on some appropriate clothes in there too.) On nonwork days its roll out of bed, stumble into kitchen and see if any furries need feeding...do that...make lunches, drink coffee and consider showering.

Alarm goes at 5.00 - jump in the shower to wake up, check my emails, eat breakfast, wash the dishes, do whatever housework I can fit in before I head out the door at 7.15.

my furbabies start trying to wake me up , Blackie by licking my hand, Snowy by laying on me, the 2 kittens by running around the bed til finally I get up , usually around 6 or 7 . I go downstairs, feed them, start the coffee, check emails . Clean up litterboxes , by then coffee is ready and I check DC to see what is happening.

I already told you I wouldn't creep into your joint at night to jack your hootch. You don't have to sleep on the bottles to protect them.

It's a toss up between the 5:10 walk to the bus stop, or the walk up Wall Street from the subway stop. Either way, it's quite the jarring experience, especially when it's 20 degrees out.

For what it's worth, I'm a huge proponent of the natural wake up. This business of alarms, bells, whistles and chimes is nonsense. People would be much more pleasant if they were permitted to wake up naturally, daily. If you got all of society to agree that the work day should start, nationwide, by 9am, and the same people agreed to do what was necessary to be there on time, sans alarms, we'd all be much happier.

ah, yes, Vera's dreaming again....

Hmmm. Don't really have a routine. Depends on my day. Usually only sleep a few hours & wake before dawn. M-F the idiot neighbor slams his door at 5:50 AM, & on Sat & Sun at 7:00 AM to go out for a smoke. That's always followed by another slam of the stairwell door next to my unit Ya never need an alarm clock around here. Oh yeah, next the idiot's wife goes out at 8:00 AM & slams both doors - returns at 9:00 AM, & slams both doors. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood.
