NaBloPoMo…Day 9

Today’s Writing Prompt: “What is the first thing you do every single day (I mean, after you hit the snooze button)? When did that step in your routine begin?”

I’m not going to count the obvious step of going to the bathroom, because that’s kinda gross to discuss in a blog.  The next step of the morning is to sit down at the computer and check e-mail.  I’ve done this for a several years now.  I’m now a mod in a group over on Goodreads, and I run a few challenges every month, so I have to check in with those daily, and I’m neurotic enough to do it several times a day.  I’m also in a very active Facebook group, and their e-mails can overwhelm my inbox if I don’t check it right away.  It might get to halfway through that before I get my morning tea or soda!
