Lay down and rest. No joke. xD

CMaz's avatar

Wow, first thing is to go to Fluther? Whew…
I avoid the computer in the morning. Get enough hang time at work.
I make my coffee, I light a smoke. I play with the dog. I walk the dog. I check out Diane Sawyer. I iron a shirt.
Hi ho hi ho, its off to work I go.

I drink from the water bottle I place next to my bed.

I trudge to the bathroom and try not to run into the wall.

Facade's avatar

Normally my babe texts me in the morning, which wakes me up. So I look to see what he wrote first thing.

Tink's avatar

I’m surprised no one takes a bath in the morning

MrItty's avatar

when I wake up or when I get up? Those are not the same. So I’ll assume you meant get up…. in which case it’s:
* find a bathrobe so as to not scar the roommate for life if she’s awake
* use the toilet
* wash hands
* put in contacts
* shower and shave

I usually take a glance at how many messages I missed on my phone.

Then stumble to the bathroom and try not to trip over my cat who sleeps in front of the bathroom door. Usuallyi fail at that though.

@Tink1113 Pssh, no, I take my showers at night. I’m way too tired to get up and take one in the morning. I’d just fall asleep in the shower.

Tink's avatar

@mangeons – Same here

willbrawn's avatar

I shower in the mornings. And sometimes I do fall asleep. Never a good thing in the shower either lol

Is someone just going through here and “GA“ing every answer? xD

I gave out a few

I’m one of those annoying morning people. So on an average day, my radio alarm goes off at 5:30 and I lay there listening to NPR until about 5:45 when my second, real alarm goes off. Then I hop out of bed, wash the face, put on the makeup, have breakfast and brush my teeth and am out of my door by 6:30 when I walk to work. I like mornings so I even do this on the weekends (minus the walk to work at 6:30). I find that sticking to a “wake-up” schedule really helps me not get so tired.

I stretch, then go to the bathroom every day. After those things, three days a week I put on my running togs, stretch some more and go outside to run. The other days, I put on a pot of coffee and check my email.

Coffee makes me sleepy

DeanV's avatar

I turn off the alarm, have some breakfast, take a shower, wake up my brother, have some more breakfast, and walk over to my mom’s. My summer is weird. Then I have some coffee there. It’s usually about 8:45 at that point.

Now school, that’s a different story. I usually get up, take a shower, have breakfast if I can, then run out the door and try and catch the damn city bus.

@Les: what time do you go to bed?

Les's avatar

@nikipedia: Usually I fall asleep around 10:30 or so. Early to bed, early to rise, I guess.

evolverevolve's avatar

I think about my life, I ask myself, “Eric, what the fuck are you doing right now? You’re pissing away your glorious 20’s, you have the rest of your life to work.” I think about how I hope something happens that will get me out of work, after that I give up and I turn the music up and shower and trudge into work.

Tink's avatar

@evolverevolve – Every morning?!

evolverevolve's avatar

@Tink1113 every single morning

justn's avatar

Go across my room to turn off my alarm, grab boxers and a towel, brush teeth, and shower.

I’m not saying and, I guess it’s useful…

DominicX's avatar

I pretty much always take a shower first. I don’t really like to do anything else before I take a shower.

Of course, as soon as I wake up, I always lie there in my bed for longer. But then after that I’ll take a shower.

aliisyourfriend's avatar

Groan about how early it is [5am], climb out of bed, put on my running clothes and shoes, head outside, run until I really wake up.

Then I shower, breakfast, deal with the kiddo, wake up my husband, watch the weather, get dressed, grab my lunch, head to work. I have to be out the door by 6:50am to get to work on time. I’ve got it down to an art form.

Supacase's avatar

Avoid getting out of bed for as long as possible and hope my husband will feed our daughter.

Then I get up and go to the bathroom, take my medicine & brush my teeth, get dressed, get my daughter’s clothes ready for her to put on, do my hair, do her hair and try to get her out the door without dawdling.

Avoiding getting out of bed is not useful, but the rest needs to be done so I suppose it is.

casheroo's avatar

I immediately get up and go to the bathroom to pee. Put eye drops in my eyes, because I sleep with my contacts in. Then I come out into the living room grumbling to my husband to get the coffee ready.

cak's avatar

-Talk to my husband
– Go to the bathroom and brush my teeth
– Talk to my son…he’s usually the reason why I am awake.
– I wake up my daughter, if she has asked to wake up early. (her alarm clock is broke)

Darwin's avatar

I turn off the alarm and set out my son’s meds. Then I go pee, take my meds, and drink some water. Next I find some clean clothes for him and then spend the next half hour trying to get him up before the summer school bus comes.

I consider it useful. My son does not.

sanari's avatar

Brush my teeth, and use the facilities.

skfinkel's avatar

@evolverevolve : Eric, while it’s no one’s business but your own, that sounds rather sad to me. Is there something you can do to make it better for yourself?

Les's avatar

I know exactly how you feel. I don’t usually feel like that until about noon, but I know exactly how you feel.

Darwin's avatar

@evolverevolve – Sounds as if you need a different job.

hungryhungryhortence's avatar

Stretch then go check after my dog and have a cup of espresso.

wundayatta's avatar

Get up,
get out of bed,
drag a comb across my head…

CMaz's avatar

Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up, i noticed i was late….

Clair's avatar

@daloon :-) You clever thing, you.

minolta's avatar

I lay down and get some extra sleep before I start my day.

aprilsimnel's avatar

This question reminds me of this sketch!

tiffyandthewall's avatar

summertime ‘morning’ schedule:
wake up, check the time and either feel ecstatic and surprised because it is so early (time to go back to sleep!) or am kind of disappointed when it’s already the afternoon (time to go back to sleep…still). wake up a second time, let the goddamn cat out when she won’t stop trying to claw down the door, check the time again, promptly ignore the texts that await me, go back to sleep (repeat that process until i feel rested enough), roll out of bed, turn on the coffee machine, pee.

these things are all super important, except maybe the checking the time part. i don’t really know why i do it.

*—Throw off my covers
