Also factor in putting on makeup Not necessary (besides you're married)
defrost something for that night. 1 minute max.

That's 13 minutes instead of your 120 minutes. My way saves you 107 minutes per day or 107*5*52/60 = 463 HOURS PER YEAR
Wow, that's some unsolicited judgement.

Sassy, don't defend yourself. Like me, you're old enough to know what it takes to get you out of the house feeling comfortable about yourself. You spend that time however you like.

I just want to know why no one thought it was interesting that the OP eats 1/3 of a head of lettuce in the car for breakfast.

I thought it was more interesting that he thought she didn't need makeup because she was married????

Hmm, open the eyeballs, wander into the kitchen, pour coffee into the cup (it's an automatic coffee maker) and then set it down next to the computer and boot it up. Pop into the bathroom while booting up the computer. Shower, teethbrushing and back to the coffee cup to where it's about the right temperature for drinking. So then "voilą" I'm at work. Anyone want some drafting done for the island of Hawaii? Nice set of blueprints for a house? No? That's okay, there's games on the computer as well. Oh! Check City-Data! That's more fun.



When I had a 'real' job that involved getting up and going somewhere, I'd put my clothes out for the next day. Prepare lunch for the next day and put it in the refrigerator. Set up the coffeemaker for the next day. It would be about half an hour from eyeball opening to being at the desk. Ten minutes of that is a bicycle ride, but it was all flat land on a sidewalk the entire way so an easy ride. No parking problems, either.


That was also drafting and drawing plans, though, so no need for fancy dress and there were places to get more coffee while at work.

My plan was to have been retired by 2015 but here I am still punching a clock. However, the 'clock' is at my house and I now work from home because the employer didn't want to have to hire anyone else. Having said that, I roll out of bed at 6am and futz about in the kitchen, start work at 7am and (if I'm lucky) change out of my PJs by 12 noon. I'm not sure if this is work arrangement is working for me but I think that, once again, I am at a mental crossroads in my life and I have to figure out when am I actually going to pull the plug on this work life thing and GTFO of the Antelope Valley, if ever. I think it's going to happen soon I really do. All my kids are done with college, it's just me and the SO and I feel like being reckless.

It comes around much sooner than we thought.

Who are you to decide if I need makeup or not? LOL


I don't recall asking for time saving advice. You do you, and I'll do me.

I'm the guy you're putting the makeup on FOR. Women put makeup on to look good for guys - for example, red lipstick makes them look aroused (arousable). They wear high heels to accentuate their hips.

Back in the day, this was my routine. Out the door in suit and tie (white shirt, black socks, dark suit, black shoes so easy to grab) in about 20 minutes. Used the 90 minutes in the car in the morning for phone time. Grab a coffee and an egg sandwich on the walk across town from the parking garage. Usually hit the trading desk by 6 a.m.


These days.....up at 5:45, few phone calls, coffee, pet the cat, and wander down to the trading desk just before seven.


They both have their merits.
