I’ve been asked a couple times to share my “typical” day. I don’t know if there is anything “typical” about it but here it is for your enjoyment.
6:13 – Alarm goes off. I set it at this time because I know I can hit snooze at least once and still manage to get out the door in a reasonable time. Usually by 6:30 or so I’m up and getting ready for work (on a good day, E will still be sleeping up till the time we have to leave.)
Not pretty but this is my reality. 🙂
I drop E off at the babysitter and head to work.
On my way, I enjoy my breakfast. And yes, that is a Diet Dr. Pepper and a Planters Nut-trition energy bar. I’m obsessed with them. Then I finish it all off with a nice piece of gum. What a wholesome breakfast but It does the trick.
Today is a particularly crazy day at work, we have an all day meeting. Started at 8:00 A.M. and finished around 3:00. Oh did I mention I’m coordinating and facilitating this meeting of 30+ people? Oh yeah, makes for a very exhausting day. But when 5:00 hits, I’m out the door. Usually getting home around 5:45 or so.
S usually pics E up and so that when I get home I’m greeted by the biggest smile ever. Then we all change and head to the gym.
Once we get home, I usually start on dinner right away and S and E bond. Now normally there is more activity going on but E’s teething (molars) so he’s in a very cuddly mood so this is was the peaceful scene while I cooked.
On the menu tonight…Sloppy Joe, Organic fries, and Steamed broccoli. I know, we’re real sophisticated eaters. Usually it’s about speed, and what can I get made quickly. We’re usually eating by 8:30, tonight it’s 8 so E can squeeze in his bath before 8:30 bed time.
Bath time is so much fun. Usually he plays for about 10 minutes or so then gets cold and wants out.
Then we start the routine..Vitamins, brushing our teeth, reading a book, saying our prayers and rocking while drinking a little milk. After he’s had enough, I usually get to cuddle with him for a while. Now, I know I should probably put him down right away but after working for 8 hours, and then the gym, this is the most time I get to spend with him so guess what..we cuddle and I LOVE IT. So what!
Once I’ve gotten adequate cuddle time in, I lay him down, take a deep breath, thank God for what I have and move on to the next item on my list…shower and studying
I think most of you know but I’ve gone back to school to get my MBA. Why? I’m not exactly sure but I am and all in all, I like it but I do have to do some studying every night. Tonight it’s Business Communications oddly enough. I have a big test on Friday that I have to be ready for. So I’ll study for about another hour and a half then call it a night around 11:00 or so.
That’s my day in a nut shell. It’s not glamorous but it’s honest. If I was being honest, what I’d tell you is that I wish I could get up and workout in the morning but I’m just not that person. Never have been never will be. I can’t do it. What is your day like? Tell me I’m not the only crazy person out there.
