    Dogs out...make coffee...pack husband's lunch bag...see him off to work...more coffee....no QB 'til the afternoon (if I make time). Don't know about anyone else, but I need a whole lot more hours in a day to do all I want to get done!

    After bathroom and getting dressed, I let out our 5 dogs, make coffee, clean kitty-litter then let dogs in, feed 4 cats, feed the 5 dogs, drink a couple of cups of coffee while checking emails, and on the rare instance it is 6:30, look at QB while finishing coffee, then it is off to the barn with barking, wrestling dogs to feed 6 horses and 2 mini donkeys, put out a bale of hay, give one horse with heaves her steriod shot, then let the horses and donkeys out. Walk back to the house and now with sleeping dogs, thoroughly enjoy the pictures and comments on QB!

    Make the coffee, let the dog out, settle into QB, go chase the dog who is hysterically barking at the rabbit that lives in the yard behind us, settle into QB, fend off the dog who wants to go back out and bark at the silly rabbit.

    Get up, make bed, feed dogs, let one out, clean litter box (husband gets up early feeds cats & makes coffee) take pills, get coffee head to sewing room for quick scan of QB & FB- then husband, I & dogs go for walk, I walk two miles each morning, come home get another cup of coffee sit down here for another hour or so and look through all things on QB.

    Each of my two cats must have their brushing, then I empty litter, sweep the floor, give them fresh water, wash their dishes and provide fresh food. The I go to the back door where they are waiting impatiently to be let out. Now, I can take my shower. Then to the kitchen to make a quick breakfast, my husband usually fixes his own, so I can have whatever I'm in the mood for. Then it is time to get ready for work. If I am efficient with my time, I may have 10-15 minutes to quilt before leaving for work. I envy you gals who are retired or don't work outside the home. I imagine I would get more quilting done if I didn't work, but then again, I would probably wind up doing so many other things and still wonder why I don't have time to quilt as much as I want.

    I get up before the alarm, as I can't bare to get startled. Dog is still sleeping.. Hit the bathroom for everything, and turn the computer on, on the way to the kitchen to prepare coffee to turn on ten minutes before I leave. Then the dog crawls out of bed, and sits patiently for me to go out with him. I stand on the steps while he lifts his leg to the tree, and it's back in to watch t.v., and read the newspaper. Read emails, start coffee, and then it's out the door to drop dog, and paper at mom's.. I do all that, and get into the office by 7:30.. It's a good thing my staff doesn't come in until 9:00..

    Bathroom, make my bed, get clothes out (if I'm working that day) so that I don't have to go back upstairs, go downstairs with dogs, turn bathroom heater on, go let dogs out, make coffee and then sit down at 530, watch a cooking show on Create and then a sewing sew show at 6 then out the door at 630 if I'm working; if not, I just relax for the most part. I'm on the pc everyday at work so I don't worry about it so much on my days off. Then eventually I'll get up and start cleaning or on Fridays my 2yr old granddaughter comes to spend the day with me. It helps save her mom money on babysitting so I watch her kids (1 is in school most of the time) on my days off. Except for Thursdays, we both have that day off. I told her it was mandatory for me to have one day each week that I could plan what ever I wanted so since she got to pick what days she gets off at work that was one of them.

    First get coffee, then go to QB. I love reading this board. I learn so much and it makes me smile. A great way to start my day!

    1. Let dog out. 2. Give the cat fresh water and then the dog. Cat drinks ONLY out of the dogs bowl now. 3. Walk down the drive and get the paper. 4. Feet up, drink coffee and catch up on the news.

    To have a good day I have to begin right...so disciplined of me! Well I do hate routine but I like to feel as well as can be. I take all my allergy meds in the bathroom first, then take my weights and do arm and neck stretches in the dressing room, then move on to make the bed and lie down to do my leg exercies for my center core. Maybe it takes 30 minutes total.

    Turn on computer, make tea, check emails then QB. That takes care of first couple of hours. Also eat breakfast among these (and maybe put on a load of washing , but only one day a week).

    No dogs. I feed the cats and then sit down with my i-Pad to read QB.
