I turn on the coffee maker. Of course I can set it to turn on all by itself but then the water and coffee would sit out all night. Can’t have that.

I try to have it be the toaster or kettle, because I really need to eat and drink quickly once I get up. Otherwise I get dizzy and feel like a dying hummingbird.

It also might be the Echo, if I need some music to get going.

Days when it’s my phone tend to be low-energy because I get stuck before taking care of basic needs. So when you’re annoyed by spam during Europe’s morning, at least know that I’m having breakfast happily, rather than doom-scrolling.

The radio news.

If that is true, you may be addicted to your gadget.

Coffee pot. A man without coffee had nothing. As my Old Pappy used to say.

In the past would do a s.s.s. $hit.Shower.Shave. now my routine is whatever I feel like and sounds good.

I sleep in for a couple of days, and sometimes I stay up all night Fluthering and watching YouTube.

@SnipSnip I might be, but my friends text me a lot and I want to stay in touch. I also have some medical appointments that I try to stay on top of and at the end of this month I will have a bunch of stuff to do so I might not be here much.

Desktop computer.

It varies. Usually one of these three: TV, phone, or bathroom light.

Coffee pot is on a timeer; I don’t need to worry about that.

First thing I turn on is the bathroom light, so I can see where to point,

Coffee maker

A light. I’m up at 4am to get to work at 5am. I need light to function.

jca2's avatar

Usually it’s the phone or the laptop, and the TV.

I have nightlights which turn on when it’s dark, so I don’t need to turn on lights if I get up to go to the bathroom.

If I’m in a big rush, which is rare, I will get up and put the coffee maker on before putting on the laptop or the phone.

where is the coffee?

RayaHope's avatar

COFFEE is certainly a front-runner here, followed closely by computers. lol!

Forever_Free's avatar

^^ my computers are always on. Just the jiggle of the mouse wakes them from their nights sleep.

RayaHope's avatar

^ I tried that with my desktop but it tends to freeze up if left on for too long :(

Forever_Free's avatar

^^ cookies and milk help mine sleep nicely

RayaHope's avatar

^^ LOL!! I am sure it would NEVER wake up again. :D

Because it is so automatic, I forgot to include all the motion sensing night lights I have around the house. Walking from the bedroom to the bathroom and then to the kitchen turns on 4 different timed night lights. Two of them are battery operated so they even work during a power failure. They all turn off after about 2 minutes or when there is sunlight.
I do not need to touch a light switch for much of the day. .

Some water faucet or another. Other than the basics, my laptop.
