The other day Trish from Love, Laughter and a Touch of Insanity decided it would be fun to have everyone document and then post about a typical day in their life. What a fun idea! Everyone is linking up at her blog today and if you haven't already done it (documented your day), you can still go for it (and link up later.)
I decided to keep track of my day this past Monday, March 23. I knew it would be a fairly normal day which meant you could see what a "boring" day for me was like. If I would have done Wednesday of this week, you would have seen what a wild and crazy day was like! Sheesh.
Anyway, I kept track of what I did and took a few pictures. So, without further ado, I give you, a day in my life:
Monday, March 23 2015
6:24: I hear my daughter's alarm go off. She gets up. I look at my phone. Oops. I forgot to set my own alarm! Good thing I heard hers!
6:30 to 7:00: I read things on my phone while my daughter gets ready for school. It helps get my eyes awake. I go through Facebook, and Twitter. I post a "Happy Bloggiesta" with the Bloggiesta Twitter account. I'm hoping that people are excited and ready to start this week long event!
7:00: I get up and drive my daughter to school. We have a little car pool and pick up a neighborhood boy on the way. It takes about 25 minutes round trip. It's a dreary day. There's even a few sprinkles out there and we both look at each and say, "Wait. Rain?"
|I often post pictures of the mountain when it's a clear|
beautiful blue day. Here's what it looks like
on a not so clear day!
|Mika came out with me to take the mountain picture!|
7:25: Back at home, I crawl back into bed and look at my phone again. This is the time of day where I feel guilty and wish I stayed up and did... something. I don't know what. But no, I lay in bed and read things on my phone for 45 minutes. The kitty comes to cuddle with us.
8:15: I get up for real and get ready for work; shower, breakfast, the usual. On Mondays, my college son does not have school so this morning, I don't have to drag him out of bed and he sleeps in. My husband gets up and is getting ready for work with me.
|Breakfast. Golden Grahams. The bottom of the bag|
which I guess only moms can eat.
8:50: I go to work. It's literally a three minute drive! My husband goes to work, it takes him about 20 minutes.
9:00: WORK at the library! When I arrive I find that my first task of the day is to print a few hundred Spanish bookmarks for a Spanish outreach open house they are doing next week. So, for two hours I do that... using the copy machine and huge paper cutter.
|I spend a lot of time in this little room.|
|The massive paper cutter.|
I'm always sore the next day. It's quite the work out.
11:00: Now I print off a few hundred Spanish brochures so they can take those to the open house also. I might as well fold them too. It takes me another two hours until it's time to come home. It was a pretty low key day at work today. When I go outside, I can tell it's been raining.
|Oh, I got these goodies in the mail too!|
We plan to do a huge file organization project soon. :)
|All folded! 300 copies!|
|The sky when I came home. Dreary!|
1:00: On my way home I get a text from my married daughter. They left their USB drive at our house and they need an assignment off it. As soon as I get home, I find that, pull it up and email it to her. My college son is up and getting ready for work. We touch bases for a bit, and talk about his concerns of the day. He goes to work. I make nachos for lunch which I eat at the computer. I also have a toast from the bread my son made the day before.
|Homemade whole wheat bread|
made by my 20 year old son! Awesome!
|I love nachos. With pepper jack cheese.|
2:00: The first Bloggiesta chat of the week starts. I'm leading the discussion about connecting to people! Very fun! Before I know it, the whole hour is over and we're done!
3:00: I work on some email that needed taken care of. There's a few that needed some thought and so it takes awhile.
3:35: My daughter gets home from school. The neighborhood boy's mom brings them home. I do mornings, she does afternoon. Sweet deal for me. Anyway, we touch bases. She starts homework. I stay on the computer.
4:00: I work on some of my own Bloggiesta To Do tasks and some general Bloggiesta stuff (like the recap post for the chat we just had!) Time flies.
|Hey, look. It's my blog!|
|I spend the whole afternoon and evening here.|
Love my little home office!
5:00: I wonder if I ever peed today. I take a bathroom break.
5:30: I do my nightly worryiing about dinner. Should I make something? Will anyone eat it if I do? Oh, I remember we have tons of leftovers from Sunday dinner. Whew! That's taken care of! I get off the computer anyway and take a break by cleaning up the kitchen and doing dishes.
|I deem this kitchen CLEAN! :)|
6:45: College son needs help with his French presentation on Flaubert and Zola. We work on that together. Outside, there's a thunderstorm! Wow! I love it! I open all the windows.
7:30: Son deems us done with the French homework. I decided to do some more Bloggiesta stuff.
8:30: Wow, I'm hungry! I fix myself leftovers. I putter around the house.
9:00: Back at the computer, I start writing my advice blog post. I'm not quite done when...
9:30: Married son and wife show up after their work. They hang out for awhile, we talk.
10:00: They head home and I finish and schedule my post. I'm tired. I'm sick of the computer.
10:15: I get ready for bed, lay down and READ!
11:50: My eyes won't stay open any longer. I turn off the lights.
12:30: I think I finally go to sleep.
And there you have it. A very typical and boring day, especially for Mon, Tues and Fri... the days I work. Wed and Thurs are crazy because I try to fit in too many things!
I can't wait to see what your days are all like!!
