A Day In My Life…

I thought for fun I’d share
what a day in my life looks like:

6:35 AM: Chris is all ready and leaving for work. A kiss on the cheek wakes me up and I turn to look over at my son. As I have suspected, he has sneaked into our room in the middle of the night, again. He has made himself a soft bed with blankets on the floor next to my side of the bed. I guess he just likes being close…such a sweetie. 

6:50 AM: Sometimes (when I am smart) I will get up as my husband is leaving so that I can get a few things done before my little guy wakes up. But on those lazy days, I go back to sleep and awake to (insert sound of boy smacking legs) “Mom, get up. The sun is shining and it’s a new day!” Oh joy! 🙂 Today was an early day. 

7:15 AM: I am at the computer with my morning breakfast. I take two scoops of this 
with a glass of milk. I have heard that eating 30 grams of protein within the first 30 minutes you wake up will help your body start the day with the right amount of fat burning hormones. Since I need all the help I can get burning that stubborn fat…I figure a whey protein shake is pretty easy to do. I drink my fat-burning breakfast down as I spend some time checking the blog, Facebook and Pinterest.

8:30-9:00 AM: Sebastian is awake and ready for some breakfast. I make him a scrambled egg, with toast/jelly and fruit. I then make myself a cup of coffee. I like a little milk in my coffee with a splash of organic cinnamon. 


9:30 AM: I make my way back up stairs to start a load of laundry. I honestly do one load of laundry everyday. To me it’s easier than saving it all for a one-day marathon of washing. I love my laundry room, but I don’t want to live in there for the whole weekend. 🙂

10:00 AM: Around this time is when I take little man and go on errands, whether it’s grocery shopping or stopping at my sons favorite home improvement stores. That’s when I hear, “No, please, not Home Depot.” or “Mom, I don’t like Lowes.” 

11:30 AM: Back home for lunch. Chris is usually home for lunch by 11:45. We generally eat leftovers from last nights dinner. If we happen to be pigs the night before, it’s generally turkey sandwiches with chips. Now you know why I buy so much organic turkey and chips! 🙂

1:45 PM: Chris heads back to work. Sebastian and I are left to our hobbies. Sebastian prefers some computer time and playing with the neighborhood kids. (Speaking of neighborhood kid, I have tried for the life of me to teach that kid how to ring a doorbell. Push once and wait. Wait. Wait a bit longer. Now you can ring a second time if no one answers. But no. This kid rings it like…ding dong, ding dong. ding, ding, ding doooooooong, pound on the door, ding dong, ding, ding, ding! When I get to that door it takes all I got to smile and say, “Hello Rupert. Did you ring?”) For my hobby, I will do some more blogging, work on my latest project, or clean house.

5:00 PM: Time to start dinner. I look at my menu board and find out what I am cooking for the night. I then gather my supplies and turn on the television to watch something while I cook.

6:00 PM: Chris arrives home from work. We chow down on our dinner, then I clean up while the boys enjoy an episode of Dora. Do you know how to say grandmother in Spanish? My husband and son do! Some how all that Spanish is stuck in their heads. Want to know what gets stuck in mine? ♪♫  “D–D–D-Dora. Dora, Dora, Dora the Explor-ah!” ♫ ♪ It’s just not fair!

7:30 PM: Chris heads to the gym and I get little man ready for his bath. Then it’s read a few books, prayers, lots of good night kisses and lights out. Except for his moon light of course. 

9:00 PM: Time to do some more blogging and catch up on emails.

9:30 PM: Chris is back home and looking for snacks to refuel from the gym. Of course, I have to snack also cause supervising a bath and reading books are mega-calorie burning activities! 😉 Sometimes we will sit together and catch up on some of our favorite shows that have been waiting for us on the DVR. Sometimes we will chat, just depends.

10:30-11:30 PM: We start thinking about making our way to bed. Lots of times Chris will go on without me if I am in the middle of a post I want to finish. It’s a bad habit that I have started and I would like to break. I am trying to go to bed a little earlier every night. Hopefully by this time next year we will be on the same bedtime schedule again. he he

This is a pretty normal day for us now that Sebastian
 is out of school for the summer.
This schedule will vary once school starts again–then I will have about 3 hours 
by myself to do more damage great projects around the house. 🙂
