Your Morning Routine Will Change Your Life

What FlyLady says I should have done this morning, according to 1 of 4 emails already in my inbox:

Sunday January 6, 2008

8:00 am - 8:30 am

This event repeats every day.
We are going to build a Morning Routine for your Control Journal or to just post on the refrigerator. Here is what I do.
1. Get up and weigh
2. Shower, get dressed to lace up shoes,fix your hair and face
3. While you are in the bathroom Swish and Swipe
4. Grab a load of laundry and start the washer
5. Check your calendar for today's activities
6. Empty dishwasher to start your day
7. Eat something good for you, take your medicine and vitamins
8. Drink your water.

How it ACTUALLY went down:

1. Get Up. You actually need to OWN a scale to be able to weigh, and who wants to do that anyway?
2. Throw on some socks, re-adjust ponytail
3. Pee (sorry if that's TMI, but come on people)
4. Head to the kitchen for some coffee
5. Get some chocolate milk for Dylan, who has joined me in the kitchen
6. Notice dirty glasses that DJ so kindly placed in the CLEAN sink, but NOT in the dishwasher
7. Drink Coffee. Vitamins are still MIA following our trip to Grandmaother's. I think they're in one of the as yet to be emptied boxes in the garage.
8. Drink more coffee. I left the Bailey's out of it today.
9. Help Dylan with the entire Lincoln Logs set that he dumped out all over the Living Room floor. Where's daddy for this? Oh, still in bed. Bastard.
10. Sit on couch, continue to drink coffee. Check email, read blogs, write my blog.
11. Watch Kipper, because Dylan refuses to keep himself occupied in his own room, with the kick-ass train set DJ built him last night. Pictures to follow. It's pretty freakin' awesome.

Ahhh...yes, Flylady. I even made a notebook...with TABS!

This was HILARIOUS and that is why you deserve what I've left for you on my blog. Come get it, girlfriend!

I was really concerned when your actual schedule didn't include any "Swish and Swipe" activity.

Everytime grandmaother comments on your blog I laugh. She is funny.
