    depends if it's a run day

    wake up 6am
    dress in running kit, down a glass of water out the door before my brain kicks in
    7am back home, make cup of tea for drive to work, feed guinea pigs, quick cuddle if I can catch them
    7.10 shower, make-up, dress etc.
    7.30 drive to work

    If it's not a run day, then I get a lie-in until 6.45 then a bit more leisurely start

    Alarm #1 @ 6am, take thyroid meds
    Alarm #2 @ 6:30am, get up and dressed
    -drink coffee(black)
    -help get kids ready for school
    -start a load of laundry
    -drive school bus for 2 hours
    -home by 9:30am, let chickens out of coop and feed/water them
    -quick daily house tidy
    -2nd cup of coffee
    -workout, then shower

    I hope to play with the schedule a bit now that spring is arriving in Manitoba. By early April I should have enough morning light to get a quick 2mile run in before I get on the bus. That will edit out my first coffee being at all leisurely, and require me to “drill Sargent” at the kids a bit more, but we all make our sacrifices!

    So much perky productivity! ;) For high contrast, here's my li'l ol' retired lady Winter (rosing off season) non-spin day routine:

    * Wake up between 10 and noon.
    * Catch up social media while lying abed (hour? varies)
    * Turn on NPR
    * Weigh in, record in libra
    * Take thyroid meds with 12oz water
    * Putter at household chores during post-drug fast
    * Drink 2nd 12oz water
    * Make oatmeal with berries, yogurt, nuts, seeds, cinnamon, molasses; plus coffee with hot milk, 12oz iced matcha with citrus wedge
    * Read or internet while eating yummy yogurt and coffee
    * Make another coffee with hot milk, drink alongside more reading/internet

    . . . and I have now oozed gently into my day. ;)

    Wake up around 10:30. Toilet etc. Breakfast around 11am. Leave around 11:30. Then gym until about 1:30pm. Then buy lunch suplies. Back home shower and start working on my dissertation around 3pm.

    That's how it's been the last 10 days or so. But I don't have a steady pattern. Often sleep between 5am and 2pm. So all follows after that.

    Wake up at 6:35.
    Wake up at 6:44.
    Wake up at 6:53 (snooze is nine minutes).
    Remove cat from my body while promising him we will cuddle on Saturday.
    Make bed.
    Go downstairs, make coffee, feed animals, pack lunch.
    Put world's saddest dog outside to do her business.
    Go back upstairs and shower. Pray dog doesn't decide to start barking. Consider whether or not anyone will see my legs and notice if I've shaved them.
    Dress, brush teeth, etc.
    Let dog back in. Wave sheepishly at neighbor.
    Double check that all doors are locked and dog has food and water and I didn't forget anything in my early morning haze. Tell dog about the plan for the evening and to have a good dog day.
    Rush out the door 15-20 minutes late for work.
    Sit in traffic and ask myself why I didn't marry rich.

    715: Lie in bed. Drink coffee provided by hubs. Check calendar, to-do list, and email on phone. Sigh.
    730: Deal with dog. Grumble at noisy kids. Eat a couple of eggs and toast. Drink more coffee.
    800: Work out. Drink more coffee. Feel more human.
    900: Shower, change, and commute the 10 steps into my home office.

    Similar, but later, and with slightly less grumbling.
