See, I work for a school district, which means our salaries are paid by tax dollars. So where most people just get off early on Friday, we have to work those extra hours during the week in order to leave early on Friday. I normally start at 7:30 a.m. and it takes me 45 minutes to get to work. For summer hours, I start at 7:00 a.m. meaning I have to leave my house at 6:15 a.m.
First thing I do as I am waking up is to check my 3 e-mails, my blog, my 2 etsy shops and pop in to say Good Morning on Facebook. Then I have to walk the dog one mile. Next, I have to get cleaned up, dressed, make up on and hair done. After that I need to make a healthy lunch and pack up lots of healthy little snacks since I am one of those people that have to be eating every hour or so. Then I can go to work. As you can see, if I get up at 5:00 a.m. and even spend an extra minute on anything....I won't be there by 7:00 a.m.
Did I happen to mention that I don't like to rush? I like calm and peaceful starts to my day. I like music playing as I waltz through my morning routine.
I actually have a plan in place for next week. I AM going to pack up as much of my lunch as I can the night before. I am NOT going to turn the computer on in the morning unless everything else is done. I AM going to work out instead. HAHAHA!! Wish me luck!
Are your mornings calm and peaceful? Just curious.
