I’ve been up since 5:30 this morning. This gives me plenty of time to shower, make coffee, and just generally come to life, which can take a while. I always wake up early, whether naturally or by an alarm clock, but I’m not fully functional until I’ve been upright & awake for a while.
My Darling B takes a more relaxed approach to working from home: She sleeps in until about a half-hour before she clocks in, gulps a hot mug of coffee, and then shambles away to her computer. I could do it that way, but I’d be pretty much useless for at least the first half-hour.
