What's your routine???

My sis-in-law just had a great post on her blog about daily routine's.
As you can see on the picture above, this is what gets me going every morning. During the summer months I got up when ever I pleased and made myself a cup of coffee, and while the coffee was brewing I would do the dishes from the night before. As soon as thats finished I would be out on the patio until I had my fill of coffee, the flowers, devotions, and sometimes a conversation, and then clean, work in the gardens or go visiting.
Now that my son is back in school, I'm trying to find the motivation to get out of bed seeing it's much earlier then I got up before and get my boy out on the bus. Not much to brag about, must I say.
My goal is to get up much earlier then Jade, get on the treadmill and shower before I have to make breakfast, Jadden's lunch and get him on the bus. Then I can feel a lot more energized while I'm having breakfast with Jade and I can get into a new routine that I can be proud of. I need routine in the morning or it becomes a fight zone in my house. lol...
When Jade is finally off to school I can then sit down with my cup of coffee and do my devotions and get my head in the game.
When I reach this goal, I'll let you know. But I must warn you that it might take a while.

Changing routines is so tough. I usually experience that when I go back to school in September. Right now I am working on a healthier routine too. I don't know why change that makes you feel good is so hard to maintain. All the best as you get up early...maybe Trinity should stay at your house for a while then you would get up earlier! :) Love ya.

I am so a morning person...the problem is I go to bed too late! Routine? I find it's just go, go ,go! I actually realized as i sat down for supper that I hadn't eaten yet today!...and I'm all about the food!...i think I need to make some changes 'round here!

I'm not much of a morning person either. It's been a sleepy week for me getting in to this school routine. I like the sounds of your routine, I hope you are able to stick to it!
