I get up about 6:30; shower, extra, and then I have about an hour to take my time eating breakfast and drink my coffee. I am able to sit and relax while drinking coffee and watching TV.
Then the kids are up at 8:00 and I have to feed my baby boy, get my daughter ready for school - “hurry up and get done in the bathroom (she will stay in their 10 minutes if I let her), get your socks on, let’s fix your hair, brush your teeth, get your shoes on” – all you parents know how it goes…. Rush, Rush, Rush, 5 days a week.
So, I need my Coffee Time, I find I function better if I get it, and it’s not just the coffee, it’s “MY time” I need before I start the day.
