Morning routine

what wakes you from your sleepy fog....
fer some it's coffee, others a shower.
me, it's a bath with bubbles, being squeaky clean, & drinking gingerale.

At the moment?

Searing back pain. I have no idea what I did, but it's quite effective at waking me up.

8 of 'em. Dinna help much.

Oh, and I do like coffee in the morning. Coffee is good, too. Although I'm usually up for more than an hour before I have any, so I don't know if it counts.

DH has taught the dog to wake me up by kissing my hand. Since DH has usually been up for an hour or so already, coffee is made, so I stumble downstairs, pour a cup, and sit on the couch for a while with the newspaper.

I had no idea I actually have to wake up, when I get out of the bed. Hm, what a concept. I, think, I'm going to be still a sleep until something exiting happens on the Internet. Or TV. Or my kids ... kids... kids....

Let the dog out while I make coffee. Let the dog in and then check e-mail while drinking first cup of coffee. Then I wake the kids and chaos ensues!

If I don't have the luxury of time, I just jump up and take a shower, then take my medicine (hopefully with something caffeine-laden, like tea or Diet Coke).

If I have the luxury of time (which I do most days now), I stretch good and hard in bed for a few minutes before doing the rest. Stretching helps me wake up more than anything.

up at 4:30, unload the dish machine while drinking a carefully saved back cup of coffee from the day before, start a new pot of coffee, fix an enormous bowl of oatmeal for dh, pack his lunch, set up the milking equipment, off to the barn to milk and feed the goats, take a swing around the garden on the way back to the house, process the milk, then fix and eat breakfast..
