Friday Five:  Routines
Friday, April 5, 2002
Suburbia, California 


Time for Friday Five:

1. What are the first things that you do in the morning to start your day? 

Pray, mostly intercessory, gratitude, and surrendering anew to Spirit.  Deep breathing. As soon as O and Freddy B know I'm awake (change in breathing pattern? stirring about?), they are in my face. Lovey Freddy B  wants cuddling; playful O, romping.

DH is usually up with the birds, an hour ahead of me. His quiet time. He joins us in bed for cuddles -- and romping if he's not running late. I get up and snap up the roller blind to let the morning sun stream in.  Yoga exercises. Breakfast. Coffee. Vitamins.

Saturday mornings:  Aloha Joe's Live Online Radio Show.
Sunday mornings:  CBS News Sunday Morning

2. What are the last things that you do at night before going to bed? 

Yoga. Bid DH and dog-kids good night. Quick prayer. Deep breathing. Adjust pillow just right so my head is cradled and comfy. With full days and no naps, I'm asleep almost as soon as my head hits the pillow.

3. What daily routine have you recently added to your day? 

Yoga regimen of 5 exercises, three times a day. 

4. What routine do you wish you could get rid of? 

Driving to and from work. Deleting SPAM email.  

5. What's the one thing that makes you feel like something is missing if you don't do it some point within your day?

MUST DOs: BE with DH and dog-kids. Reading. Writing. Listen to music.
