Well, I live by myself, so…if I don’t get up and go to work, then I get fired. If I get fired, the bills don’t get paid, etc., etc., etc.

Me. I get up to enjoy another day in the life of me.

The reason I get up in the morning is because my eyes open, then I realize I’m alive…then I smell the coffee. Life is good:>)

Monday – Friday: Work.
Saturday & Sunday: Chores and other activities with the wife.

Because I’m not dead, and the human body can’t sleep forever…...And I don’t want to get in trouble.

I’d like to say that my answer is school, even tho that is true it’s quite a “boring” answer.

So my answer is; I get up in the morning to feel the sun, listen to music, be with my friends, to be in love, to party, to live life the best way possible. I wake up in the morning for those good days, I live for those good days.

It’s both a lot more fun and a lot more interesting than the alternative.

kariper's avatar

True that!

I have to otherwise I definitely wouldn’t.

Mainly, my family. I could stay in bed all day right now if I really wanted to (though I think my bladder and stomach would eventually get really mad at me).

To see how much better this day can be than yesterday

My cat meows and cries until I get up and give him treats. It’s the most annoying sound!

I got up this morning because I needed to start forgetting my dream, in which I accidentally pulled down Michael Cera’s pants while he was climbing onto his bunk bed.

Also, I got up because I had really bad abdominal cramps and wanted to see if peeing would help. It didn’t. It’s still a mystery. :(

My dogs can’t open the door themselves to go into the garden to pee. If it wasn’t for them my life would consist of many more lie ins.

Routine, it is what I always do.

My husband, my family and my dog. Especially my dog. As soon as my husband gets up he starts to flop all around the bed or even walks on me to get me up. He can’t stand it if one of us is up and one is on the bed. Then he doesn’t know with whom should he be with plus he has to be fed and taken out. Annoying but cute.

downtide's avatar

In no particular order; myself, my family, my dog, work, and Fluther.

I’m 40. I have to pee.

To quote a favorite author of mine:

“Because we’re really fucked, and life is really good.”

School and work. But if it was up to me, I’d become merged with the bed. I’d love being a pillow or a blankie and just lay on beds all the time.

Coloma's avatar

Myself and my critters.
Get outta bed, stagger to kitchen, put on tea kettle, feed cats something ‘delicious’ like Turkey and cheese Friskies, ( gotta have that morning cat food aroma, mmmm )

Then, go out into garage and unlock door that keeps Raccoons out of my kitchen during the night.
Say ” GOOD MORNING! Time to come on OUT!” to the shrieking Geezers.
Llet them out of barn, stagger back in, make a cup of Tasters Choice, turn on computer, check out email and fluther.

A day in the life…lol

stardust's avatar

It’s a brand new day with new possibilities. Hopefully, I’ll remember that in the morning when it’s time to get up

gailcalled's avatar

There is also the persistent presence of Milo, who plays reveille on his little bugle near my ear.

augustlan's avatar

I don’t… I get up in the late afternoon or evening. << Vampire.

Anyway, though, I do get up at some point, and when I do it’s to see what the day night will bring. Husband, kids, cats, friends, job/Fluther. Love.
