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

Nature of relationships

Hi all,Have been thinking of relationships recently and as I didn't grow up with happily married parents I didn't have a good role model to understand what they are about.But a theory I have is that a relationship is not so much about the person you are together with, it's more about having a commitment to the relationship itself.  So it doesn't matter so much whether your wife annoys you or pleases you, whatever happens you are committed to the idea of being togeher and forming this…See More
