Day 20: Your Morning Routine

My morning routine is to get up early. Usually around 0545 or 0600 — certain military habits just won’t die. I go downstairs, feed the cats, and try to write for about 30 minutes. After that I turn on the music upstairs so Kate will start to wake up, and then I begin to get her out of bed, which usually takes multiple visits with 5-10 minutes between them.

While she’s in the shower, I usually putz around on the Internet, and then get in when she’s done. After the shower, it’s off to work.
