5:45am: Wake up to the music of my iPod. Try to forget the crazy dream I had about a wedding, an awful stomach tattoo, and Rob Bell Skyping from an airplane.
5:46am: Grab iPad to check out the "news" of the morning. AKA look at Twitter, Facebook, and get rid of all email notifications that have popped up through the night.
5:50am: Rub a dub dub!
6:05am: Check out the weather for the day to plan what I'll wear. It's gonna be a hot one.
6:15am: Once dressed, take Bandit out for a quick walk around the apartment building.
6:30am: Stand in front of the bathroom mirror and try to decide if I have the motivation to actually blow-dry my hair.
6:31am: Decide I don't, and spritz on de-tangler and sea salt spray so it doesn't look like a total disaster. Then move onto brushing teeth and makeup.
6:40am: Refill Bandit's water and food bowls.
6:45am: Pack up my purse and head out to the car.
6:47am: Jump in the car (literally... cause I'm short) and listen to The Time Traveler's Wife as I head to my morning meeting.
7:00am: Feel better at morning meeting when the waiter immediately brings a cup of coffee.
7:30am: Breath a sigh of relief that morning meeting went well, then get back in the car.
7:45am: After dropping off my Netflix DVD in the mailbox, go to the office.
8:00am: Get another cup of coffee, and fight with the stapling machine until the secretary comes to rescue me.
8:30am: Sit down at desk and catch up on emails and blogs.
And thus... the first few hours of my Wednesday morning.
How do you start your days?
