Are you awake yet? Have you started your morning routine? Mine is never the same. I have no set time to get up. I am very lucky that my husband wants to do the morning routine thing himself. And Miss Brooke is now definitely old enough to get herself up and off to work every morning. The Beau had lived the single life for 9 years before we were married. He had settled into a set routine of getting up at a certain time, how he proceeded to get ready, ate breakfast, and if DD2 was with him, his routine was set with her for 9 years already. When we were first married, I wanted to impress him by getting up, fixing breakfast for everyone, fixing lunches, etc. It just didn't work. He was so set in his ways and we all know, women are more flexible than men. Other than getting myself ready, I really didn't have anything to do in the morning except for maybe moving the girls along. He had to take DD2 to her bus stop since she was in a different school district and his work was right beside Miss Brooke's school while in middle school and just past her high school, therefor he just dropped her off.
As you may recall, I became very ill 4 months into our marriage and haven't worked since. The morning routine continued as it had been and I wasn't required to get up in the mornings. As I set, I have no set time to get up unless I have an appointment scheduled. I wake up when I wake up. My sleep can be very erratic so I may wake up and be up for awhile and then go back to sleep. However, when I do wake up, I try to maintain some sort of routine.
Before I ever get out of bed, I check my iPhone for all of the notifications I have received thus far. I get up and I wash my face and moisturize, brush my hair, and put on something resembling clothes. I usually will find something to eat for breakfast and then hit the computer. I will read and take care of emails and do anything the Beau asks me to do on the computer. He is definitely not computer literate! I keep joking with him that I am signing him up for basic computer courses. I start reading blogs and that usually takes up my morning. I know it isn't much and not very interesting but some have asked and I thought I would share here on the blog!
I should get more organized with my morning routine. I need to try to get up at a pretty set time and get out and walk (I wish I could run like so many of you) while it's still the cooler part of the day. I need to make plans for each and every day. I think once we get through with the painters (another story for another day) and get the carpet installed and it's time to start getting the house back into shape, I will be ready for a more routine day. What's better than making your house pretty and more like a home than just a house???
So what do you do for your morning routines? Any rituals to share? Set breakfasts you have to have every day? Leave a comment and share with my readers.
And most of all,
