The first thing I do when I get up is head straight to the shower. I am not really awake and feel yucky until I am able to get in the shower and wash up. I know that the first thing my parents used to do when they woke up was head to the kitchen and make coffee. Then they would (I think they probably still do) sit in bed, drink coffee and watch TV. So what is the first thing that you do in the morning?

Oh wow, the first thing I do in the morning is head straight for the bathroom! I have to pee! But after that it's take a shower and get ready. Hopefully my son hasn't woken up by then yet so I'll sit down with a cup of coffee and some breakfast and check my emails. But usually my son is awake so it's rushing around to get read and then running in to get my screaming 10 month old. Aw, the joys of parenthood! :)

I hear ya! My 6 year old is just now getting to the point where I actually have to wake him up in the mornings, which is a nice change from having to run around and get him settled before I can start my routine!

I used to get up and shower first thing, but now I get up and have my breakfast before I shower. I changed my routine when we moved to our new apartment, and the reasoning behind that is long and convoluted. But suffice it to say that it's much easier for me to eat first and then shower. And I assure you, I don't really like being unshowered in the morning, but food first just works better. :)

The very first thing I do is check the pee pads for my puppies. I like to get those up and in the trash as soon as possible. Then I wash my hands and brush my teeth. Seems like that is pretty much the start to my morning routines.

I am much like your parents, except that the coffe was set on a timer and I just grab a quick cup! Then I sit for a bit and surf the net and check emails. After a cup of coffee (or two) I go to the shower and start getting ready for my day! I used to read the paper with my coffee, but this small, hick town has decided to MAIL the newspaper rather than to deliver it, so I don't have it until late in the afternoon!

look for the breakfast. Somehow, on school days, I would wake up very early to cook for my breakfast. The first thing I do when I got to stand up from bed, is to grab my glasses, pony my hair then get the frying pan and cook, cook, cook and eat...get ready for school.

I go into the bathroom handle my morning mouth and face, take the dogs out, come in wash hands, turn on pc to start my shift to work usually work about 2-4 hours in the morning, turn the coffee maker on, open blinds to the 1st floor rooms, gt coffee, sit and start work. Thats a lot just to start my day. But I think like this if I don't do it in that order my day is shot.LOL I know that might sound crazy.

Snooze the alarm until it gets fed-up of being snoozed and turns itself off. Go back to sleep.

The first thing I do is pee- Every morning- cant help it- then I brush my teeth-- I hate that gross feeling of nighttime mouth-- then I head for the shower- I like to be cleaned- it always wakes me right up- Sometimes on weekends when I clean- I skip the shower until my house is clean- I hope at that time that noone stops in to visit- LOL

First of all I brush my teeth and then I take my breakfast after that I read my newspaper. It's my daily routine work that I always do and after that I use to call my gairlfrnd who lives in other city to know what she is doing and when is woke up.

First thing I do is pray, in this day and age, you never know what to expect, for some of who believe in the Ultimate Creator, its only fitting we give Him thnaks for another day.

I definitely like to head to the shower when I wake up. It just wakes me up in the morning and I need all the help I can get waking up. I am not a morning person.

Unfortunately, I check my email and have a bagel. My son is usually still sleeping. So if I have any emailing to do I try to do it when he is still asleep. So off to the computer I go, bagel in hand. To see what has happened in my little cyber world overnight! Usually not much, so it makes me feel like I have accomplished a lot more than what I really have!

The first thing I do in the morning while I get up from bed I put my both the palms together and pray God for the good day. Then go to the wash room and brush the teeth. After fresh up drink coffee along with read the day's news paper. The life is full of challenges , To educate yourself visit: http://harikrishnarao.co.nr/
