The day starts with my alarm going off at 4:45 AM. It’s early, but I get dressed and head to boot camp or go out for a run. After my workout, I get home and make myself a cup of coffee. It’s still quiet in the house, and I enjoy my coffee in peace and catch up on the news, followed by a quick shower. My kids and husband head downstairs at 7:00 AM, and it’s a whirlwind of activity – eating breakfast, making lunches, getting backpacks packed, and everyone is out the door by 7:25 AM. Everyone except me. I’m fortunate enough to have a home office, so I head straight to work and can usually comb through emails and plan my day before most of my co-workers even log in. It’s 8 AM, and I’ve accomplished a lot already and am ready to take on the rest of the day.
