22. Your morning routine
This varies depending on the day of the week and time of the year. A typical academic weekday morning looks like this:
- Wake up when husband’s alarm goes off at 6:30.
- Try to go back to sleep, but fail.
- Get up at 7:30
- Shower, etc.
- Head downstairs
- Start up laptop
- Brew tea if it’s cold, pour water or iced tea if it’s warm
- Grab banana and vitamins
- Eat while checking email and social media
- Defuse whatever disasters developed overnight
- Make and pack lunch
- Put on shoes (and coat, if it’s cold), grab phone, keys, purse, and whatever needs to be dragged to work
- Drive to work
