what are first three things you do on coming home from work…?

India
April 14, 2007 6:03am CST
I almost get exhausted at office by the evening and even more while coming back home in the bus with people pushing and dashing on one another to get back home soon. As soon I reach home I have this mental picture of the kids huddled by the door waiting saying ready set go! It is like I get pounced on! I hug and kiss my way through both of them. Kick my shoes off and gulp down 2-3 glasses of chilled water which my other half gives me. What are first three you do on return back home from work. share your thoughts

First thing is take off my shoes as soon as I get in the front door, then I put the kettle on for a cup of tea or coffee, and then while that's boiling I feed my cat. If I don't feed him as soon as I get in my life is just not worth living for the rest of the evening!

My "return home routine" is usually something like this: Open door. Pet dog. Pet cat. Kiss boyfriend. Put down bags and kick off shoes. Talk with BF for about 15 minutes about our days work and then start dinner. If the weather is nice out, we will sometimes put off dinner and work in the yard for a little while. I'm trying not to watch TV or go on the computer on weeknights until after dinner, otherwise I feel it ends up sucking up my whole evening.

Oh no, I can't give you a definitive response here. I'm not working outside. I only work according to my own schedules. After closing up a deal with a client and going home, I will go straight to my study room and begin writing down receipts for all my client's orders. I'm such a workaholic bunny that I can't even accord myself a few relaxing moment.

When i first get home, i take off my shoes, and set whatever i need down on the table. Then i look at the mail that has come. On my way through the living room to the bedroom to change, i stop and either pet or play with the cats as they nap in the room. Then i go to my room, change clothes and get into my pjs or comfy clothes, as when i get home i am usually in for the night.Then i come down here and spend some time on here,check email, and play pogo and then just go and eat dinner and relax. Granted in about 6 weeks that will change as i will be unemployed

The time is very difficult when you depress and your feelings hurt by anybody. controlling yourself and making self fresh is very necessary. When I depress I go out for a walk in park.

I'm sorry, but I think you misunderstood the topic. At least, I hope you did. Perhaps you thought you were responding to another topic. In any case, I hope you have a nice day.

As soon as I reached home, open the door, take of my shoes, put my stuffs in my room. Are these considered the 3 things :P The next 3 things I do without fail :- 1) Wash up, changed into comfortable clothes 2) Check out what's for dinner and 'packed' my dinner to the room 3) Switch on my notebook and login to internet and having dinner at the same time.

Well right now my life is in a bit upheaval because I have six puppies that I come home and take care of. So that has thrown my routine out of wack. I like to come home, kick my shoes off, get a nice hot cup of tea, and relax, whether it's reading, watching tv, or getting on the computer depends. Then I have to make supper and all that fun stuff.

Well I don't work but I do go to school. When I come home from school I change into my "just chillin' outfit." Then I drink some water. Then I go to the bathroom to unleash the beast that must be unleashed. I hold it all through the morning. Holding last nights food and breakfast. So you can imagine how eeger I am to get home.

I haven't worked yet. because I'm still student in high school.. When I come home from school, I usually go to sleep. because I'm very tired, also I come home by car and it makes me feel sleepy while I sit in the car. =P then, I wake up after sleep for 1-2 hours, and I go to bathroom.. then I go to course.. it's my daily routine..

I will answer for my husband, as I do not have a job outside of the home. When my beloved gets home from his long, hard 11 hours of working, he groans - walks the dogs - takes a shower - groans - grabs a couple of bowls of cereal or some peanut butter on toast - then number 4 is watch some television before crawling into bed, but 4 is spontaneous along with the eating of the cereal or toast.

first one is an obvious one i.e. changing clothes... second is having bath or half bath to clean up my body... the third one is to watch tv for some time before i go for dinner.... :)
