Today, I am documenting this (my summer morning routine) here because I came across this photo and was struck with how much I have enjoyed my routine these past few weeks.
6:30 - alarm goes off. Wake up put on flip flops and quickly go get Henry from his crate and take him straight outside to "go potty." Sometimes doing the potty dance myself because I have to wait on him.
7:00 - give Henry fresh water and food, and wait around for him to eat. Play in between, and say goodbye to Adam as he leaves for work.
7:30 - Still in kitchen, drinking 1st cup of coffee, going outside every once in a while to see if Henry needs to go potty again. More play time with Henry :)
8:00 - Put Henry in the pantry area for his first nap. Put on breakfast (boiled egg), and English muffin. Head to get myself dressed and ready for the day.
9:00 - Fix breakfast (peel egg and butter muffin - LOL) and make 2nd cup of coffee. Eat and listen to the television while I surf the net (2peas, fave blogs, facebook).
10:00 - Work in scrapbook room. This varies depending on my level of inspiration. Sometimes I end up just standing there at my desk watching t.v. - but more than not this summer, I have used this time wisely.
This is my morning routine. And I have so loved it. Even the getting up at 6:30 a.m. part. It's earlier than I would usually get up, but each morning is greeted with sweet puppy kisses & fun, and that's what has made this summer routine so so cool.
I am guessing that next summer will be different, because Henry will no longer need "potty" help. And maybe, just maybe, the 2 of us will be able to sleep in :)
Just wanted to document this as it's taking place so I don't forget.
