Question of the Day - September 7th!

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
how long does it take you to get ready? From the time you wake up till you walk out the door.

It depends on how late I wake up like today I was out of the house in 25 minutes and that includes a shower!

One hour!

I'm up at 6.25.a.m, showered, teeth brushed and breakfast. Then makeup on, dressed and out the door at 7.25.a.m

3 hours!
I wake up, feed the dog and the cats, clean up the litterboxes, wash their dishes. Then my turn to take a shower, cook and eat my breakfast, brush my teeth, dress up and put makeup. I'm out of the house by 9 a.m

Just over an hour. That includes feeding, petting, playing peek-a-boo in the shower w/ Luna and chasing Whitey around (he loves it).

Well, I don't work at the moment so whenever I *have* to go somewhere it's when John wants to go somewhere on weekends. I get up, shower, get dressed, feed and walk dogs, feed cats, wake John up and I'm ready to go... all within about 20-30 minutes. But then John takes forever to wake up and get ready so it's probably another 30-45 minutes or longer before we can go.

those 25 minutes today included taking the dog out and changing 3 waterbowls I don't feed wet in the morning and they have dry out all the time. and getting ready in the morning involves dodging and hurdling about 10 cats

Because I get up so early, I take my shower/bath the nite before. So I can get up, dressed and out the door in 15/20 mins at the most.

That's a normal time for almost any day. If I include the shower - add 10/15 mins to that.

DH is the one that feeds the dog/cats their breakfast.....I do the supper time and litter pan in the evening.

I usually get up about 2 hours before I need to leave because I like to relax while I eat breakfast and play with Layla. And of course shower and get dressed!!
post #12 of 27
I can be out of the house in 1/2 hour. Of course it usually helps if my daughter cooperates!
(yikes, now everyone knows how much primping I do not do!!)
post #13 of 27
I don't go anywhere
If I'm going to run errands (usually 2-3 times a month), I shower the night before, then it takes me about 20 minutes to get out the door.
Having next to no hair makes things go so much faster.

About an hour but not doing stuff for myself./ I have to get Ari up and ready to go to the baby sitters and take care of all the foster kittens. Getting myself dressed and ready only takes 5-10 minutes.
post #15 of 27
10 minutes max.

I get up at 6:45, have to be punched in at work at 7:00. It sure is nice living 4 blocks away from work in a small town with no stoplights or trafic
post #16 of 27
about an hour and a half.
post #17 of 27
I usually wake up an hour earlier than the kids, so i have some time for myself. If i'm in a hurry I can shower get dressed and out in 15 minutes, If I have to do the girls hair, it takes about 30- 45 minutes
post #18 of 27
Anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. The biggest part of my morning is usually the commute. I'll wake up at 7:00, leave by 7:25 and get to work by 8:00.
BUt If I want to do my hair, it takes a bit longer.
post #19 of 27
It depends upon what I have to do! If it's the "whole works" (i.e., shower, do hair, make-up, etc.) then about 2-3 hours. If I'm running late and only have time for a quick wash-up and getting dressed, then about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes. This also includes morning litter-box duty, and feeding the cats their breakfast...

I'm sooo embaressed i'm admitting this but here goes- i am NOT a morning person. Yet i have to be at work by 7 every morning. SO normally i wake up between 6:30- 6:45 depending on how tired i am and I have to be out the door by 6:50- so depending on the morning - i can be ready and out the door in 5 minutes How bad is that I eat a cereal bar on the way to work when i get stuck at the stop lights and put on my make up in the parking lot or at red lights.

Now if it's for anything other than work - a party, dinner/ etc....i usually take 30 min to about an hour- that includes showering, hair, make up, getting dressed /etc.

HA!

I'm a stay @ home Mommy... BUT... to get the kids ready for the DAY?

I get up at 7:15am
I take a shower & get dressed
I go downstairs & feed canned food to the 3 kittys
Then I scoop the 4 litter boxes
By that time its 8:00-8:15
I get my 4, 3 year olds out of bed.
I get them all downstairs and they use the bathroom 1 by 1
I make them breakfast
While they eat breakfast, I Clean the kitchen & I sip my coffee.
When they are done I clean up after their breakfast frenzy & send them on their way.
THEN, I brush 4 sets of teeth. - By this time its around 9:30-10:00
Then I go and pick out their clothes for the day and tell them to get undressed and tell them to get dressed & help them with whatever they may need help with.

Then I tell them to put their dirty clothes ontop of the washer.

I then Comb all of their hair.

Generally we are all Ready for the day by 10:00-10:30am

TA-DA

4 Kids & ME... Ready for the Day! (if you are wondering where their bath is... they take their bath at night )

thats how I am on weekends! Days...

Usually I am up by 7:00AM and out the door by 7:50AM... so, 50 minutes on week days! But like Pam said, on weekends it can take hours... or days
post #24 of 27
Well how long does it take to put on a pair of shorts, socks, sports bra, Tshirt, brush teeth and get hair in ponytail????? My coffee is done brewing by then!!
I shower when I get home cause I'm usually smelly, sweaty and dirty!!!
post #25 of 27
About half an hour.
post #26 of 27
About an hour and a half. I'm a bath person, not a shower person...and I have to take it in the morning, before work. Morning involves feeding and pilling the cats, scooping 3 litterboxes, and checking my e-mail while having my morning coffee. Then I take the bath, do my makeup and hair, get dressed and then leave for work...after I kiss each kitty goodbye. Sometimes I chat with my sister in San Diego on speakerphone while I'm doing my makeup and hair. She works midnight shift, so it's 2:30 am (and break time) there when it's 5:30 am here. Obviously I don't like to rush into my morning, huh?
