Five Morning Questions



Some of us are morning people, some of us aren't.  What are your mornings like? 

1: Do you set an alarm clock? 
2: What is the first thing you do when you get out of bed in the morning? 
3: Caffeine or no caffeine first thing in the morning - if yes, what is your caffeine delivery device of choice? 
4: What is the first thing you read in the morning? 
5: Are your mornings leisurely or rushed to get out the door?   

My answers: 
1: Do you set an alarm clock?  - Rarely, only if I have an early flight or meeting. 

2: What is the first thing you do when you get out of bed in the morning? Turn on my computer - then head to the bathroom. 


3: Caffeine or no caffeine fist thing in the morning - if yes, what is your caffeine delivery device of choice?  Yes, Coke Zero or Iced Coffee. 


4: What is the first thing you read in the morning? Blogs, starting with Ken at Living the Life: http://ckenb.blogspot.com/.  I don't know why, but he is first on the list and has been for years.  


5: Are your mornings leisurely or rushed to get out the door?    Normally quite leisurely.  On average it is 2-hours between my feet hitting the floor, and my leaving for the office.  I recently realized that this is one of my most precious "me-times."

  6. I am,sooooooo not a morning person. That being said I'm up at 4:30am!!! I do set an alarm, but I wont mention what I do when I first wake up, but after getting out of bed, I make it and head to the shower. I generally have a coffee at my abode and then pick up another on the way to work. I generally check email first, then maybe some blogs. My morning are leisurely, hence why I get up so early. I hate being rushed.
