How do you start off your day? I always like to start the day off in a positive manner and run with that positiveness throughout the day. I'm pretty routine with my morning 'chores' and it goes something like this. I don't normally set an alarm, however I don't wake up naturally either - I have a needy French Bulldog that sleeps in the front room and whines for attention between 06:30 and 07:30 everyday without fail, so that is my alarm clock. Seriously if you want an alarm sound that is soooooo annoying, it is the whine of a French Bulldog.
