We have currently moved to a different location. Here my kids are picked up by a bus and taken to school! There pick up time is 7:49 so we had to adjust to waking up at 6 to get the kids ready and off on time. What time do you start your day?

I get up somewhere between 5:45 and 6:15 to get the kids up. The bus for the yungest picks them up about 7:10. Then I get my oldest up about 7:30 caused her bus picks up about 8. If I try to get the oldest up before 7:30 she yells at me. Since she doesn't eat first thing in the morning, by choice, she says I don't need to get her up any earlier.

I ignore her unless she is especially nasty about it. I get not wanting to get up in the morning and by the time I get her up I've had my morning coffee so I'm not so mean.

I start my day a little before 4am. I have to be at work (which, thankfully, is only about 5-10 minutes away) at 5am. It's not easy for me, even now when I have been on this schedule for 5 years. I think it strikes me the most when i am driving to work on Saturday and there is traffic. What I realize is that, most of the people on the road at that time are probably just heading home after a night of fun.

I work in a dialysis center and we have to be up and ready for patients by 5:30am. It's a very quick start to the day.

I start my day several times before I really get going. At 6:30 my neighbor with a performance engine goes to work, the noise does not bother me but it does wake up my dogs who then decide it is time to go outside and do their buisness. If I have to go to work then I stay up. If I only have class that day then I go back to bed until 8, and if I am volunteering that day I go back to bed and watch the news for 30 minutes then get up. The kids in my neighborhood have it rough, the school bus runs at 7:15, and brings them home around 5pm (yuck).

I usually wake up around six in the morning...without an alarm! I'm out of the house around 7:45 or 8:00. I use to wake up much later, around 7. I find I like the extra time in the morning, though!
