Today I'm linking up with Shay and Erika. for Let's Look. The topic for this month is Morning Routine. During the week I have two morning routines - one for when I work from home, and one when I go into the office. I documented both:
Last Friday I worked from home. I get to wake up a bit later.
And I get to lay in bed for a few minutes. Dave was first in the bathroom so I looked at my phone while I waited for my turn.
Everyone is up on the mornings I am working from home. Lunches are made, breakfast eaten, and usually some music playing on the speaker.
Coffee made and I get to drink out of a mug.
Hugs for Q as he gets ready to leave.
And I get to say goodbye to E (and his friend) as they head out the door to walk.
Then over to my desk. I usually wait until everyone is gone before I get my breakfast ready and just eat it at my computer. I can eat something like granola and yoghurt that I don't need to scarf down.
On a morning where I'm heading to the office for 8:00, I have to set an alarm for 6:00 and get up right away.
My clothes are already picked out so I can get ready quietly in the bathroom.
Makeup and hair. I opted for some dry shampoo and flat iron, I don't usually shower in the morning because I don't want to spend time drying my hair.
Since no one is up and I'm downstairs alone, I listen to podcasts on my Airpods.
I put lunches together for the boys. E was having sushi but I left it out for him to decide which pieces he wanted to put in his lunch box.
I had something I could eat quickly, the last of the oat squares (in cashew milk) and some scrambled eggs, to which I added some hot sauce before eating.
Q was up while I was finishing up in the kitchen. He was eating his leftover sandwich from the day before. I did not see E on this morning and only waved to Dave while he was showering and I brushed my teeth.
Backpack ready to take with me to the office.
Waiting on the subway platform. I usually get a seat and can read my book on the ride downtown.
Settling in at my desk for the morning.
Occasionally I will do a workout on the mornings I'm working from home, but I do like to take advantage of the extra sleep.
