    • Peggy Said on:

      I can’t speak for others, but after I finally get up, I stumble into the bathroom with only one eye open & get in the shower. It wakes me up. Otherwise I would fall back asleep in my breakfast…and drown.


  15. Lauren's mom Said on:

    Ha! 4:15, 4:50, 5:15, 5:40?
    I remember those days! However, being sort of retired is great!
    Wake up at 6:45 or 7:15. No alarm clock. Make coffee… Drink a cup, maybe two before you even think about a shower, etc.
    Breakfast? Maybe at 9:00 or 9:30.
    Sorry. I didn’t mean to gloat….
