I’ve always been a simple woman that likes to keep a pretty regular routine. Most mornings this means I get up at 6:00am, and get a few things done before anybody else in the house gets up.
Every morning I would make the kids lunches for school, quickly watch the news, have a shower and brew my pot of coffee on the stove. I knew it wasn’t the most modern way of doing things, but it was my way. It was always my little moment to myself so I enjoyed waiting for it to brew.
The mornings are the most peaceful time of day for me and I love every second of it. As my father used to say “Every minute spent organizing is an hour earned” which I still live my life by.
By the time everybody else gets up in the morning I am ready for the chaos and it means I get to spend my time enjoying their company without feeling rushed.
