Technology has shaken up plenty of life's routines, but for many people it has completely altered the once predictable rituals at the start of the day. Families check e-mail, text msgs., Facebook & Twitter BEFORE you say g'morning anymore!

Oh, no. I can't even find my computer before breakfast. It should remain a family meal, I think. The world won't stop turning and if the messages have waited all night (unless one sleeps with a computer) they can wait a few minutes more..;)

Our morning starts off w/ me getting up bout 1am, make my coffee while tip toeing around the house. Then come sit at the computer to check my emails & do my petitions & clicks & by the time i'm done w/ all that stuff everybody is waking up around the house about 7am. When daughter & husband gets up I get off PC to spend the Good Mornings w/ my family then go about our day. & You????

My family starts with face book every morning, except for me, I have to check Care 2. Then we eat breakfast together. The online wold is last at night and first thing in the morning.

When my children where young and at home I'd get up earlier than everyone wash and dress, then prepare breakfast while my husband got them out of bed if they hadn't done so already. Now I'm a widow and children grown so I feed the cats, make my tea and spend some time with my Care2 friends!

I know Peace. I have a friend who got a pain in his kidneys because he wouldn't go to the bathroom to tinkle because he didn't wish to leave the chat... the worst thing is that he was at his job! I am surprised that he wasn't fired.
