Just did a quick search and it didn't come up with anything. Just wondering what you gents had going for a morning routine. My routine is as follows:

-Wake up to my dog breathing in and licking my face
-Roll out of bed let the dog out while making him breakfast
-Grab a cup of coffee
-Let the dog in and give him his thyroid pill as well as give him his breakfast
-Head back to the bedroom and make the bed
-Check my email real quick
-Head back downstairs
-Clean up all the mess the dog made from drinking water (pretty sure he doesn't swallow)
-Grab another cup of coffee
-Grab the towel and jump in the shower
-Wet shave
-Brush Teeth
-Grab some clothes
-Throw some gunk in my hair and comb it
-Out the door or hanging around the house depends on what's going on that day

As you can see my routine is pretty straight forward and simple.

  • Wake up to CD alarm clock playing Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music (the only thing that wakes me up at 6:30 AM).
  • Go make coffee, and take vitamins while waiting for coffee to brew
  • Eat breakfast and drink coffee while checking email and reading news
  • Feed dog (mastiff)
  • Morning prayers (5-20 mins depending on how late I am)
  • Shower and wet shave in the shower
  • Dress for work
  • Walk dog around the block, past the elementary school
  • Change the dog's water and let him chug away. He turns water into drool, so I usually have to let him drink 2-3 times, and wipe all the drool off his face and the kitchen floor. Sometimes I swiffer before I leave.
  • Lock up, get in the car and drive to work
  • Park in the parking garage and wait for the shuttle to work
  • Have odd interfaith conversation with the shuttle driver if there's nobody else in the shuttle
  • Go to my cubicle and boot up the computer
  • Check email and start working
my morning varies day by day with little kids. If nothing else was going on, I would check email, watch the morning news, clean up and shower, get dressed, and read the Bible, pack lunch; not necessarily in that order. I drink coffee in the to go mug on the way in.
If it's a work out morning:
-4:30AM alarm goes off to loud buzzing. I slam it off so as not to wake the missus or my son.
-stumble downstairs, eat banana and drink coffee that was set to brew on a timer the night before
-lift some weights and ride the bike until 6 to 6:30am
-wake my 5 year old up. He's already getting to be unruly in the morings. Scramble to get him and me fed, washed, ready for school and work and out the door.
-listen to local news to see where the bad traffic is
- take the least traffic congested route to work while mellowing out to jazz or banging my head to rock listening to sirius satellite radio.
- get to work and drink more coffee
