I usually start waking up around ten when my alarm goes off and my cats sit on my chest and want to play.

If I don’t have to go anywhere, I have lunch and read until suppertime. After supper, I watch TV until after the news, then play trivia or crossword puzzles on my computer for an hour or so and read myself to sleep around one or two or later.
