I don’t THINK I’ve ever done a day in the life post before and I keep seeing them pop up here in there on the nets. I find it fascinating to see what other people do during the day so I decided to do one even if it’ll just be for me to look back on and remember:)
6:30am I hear Eli crying…he had a rough night due to a stuffy nose. However, I was too dense to check his nose and it wasn’t til I brought him in bed with me to nurse that I heard it. He struggled to nurse and so we just snuggled.
6:45am Shane’s alarm goes off and he gets up so Eli pops up and follows him around while he makes coffee and gets ready. I enjoy the warm covers a little longer since Avery is still sleeping….it feels so good.
7:15am Shane has to leave so I get up and make Eli breakfast of plain yogurt and raw oats with some honey…what my boys would eat for every meal if I let them. I make myself a LARGE green smoothie.
7:40 Avery finally rises! He enjoys a lot of green smoothie too and passes on his bowl of yogurt so I put it away for later.
8:00 I decide not to go to the gym. I generally got every day that I can but Avery had roseola over the weekend which means…body rash but no longer contagious. I went to the gym yesterday without a problem and though today his rash was about gone, it irritated a little eczema breakout on his mouth/chin area that looked bad. I wasn’t sure if they’d take us! So I just goofed around with the boys and drank my coffee/smoothie for a while longer.
9:30 time to get dressed for play group! I go to this every Tuesday morning. Basically it involves a bunch of toys plus a bouncy house in a church gym where we let our kids loose and drink free coffee while having mommy chats. It sometimes rules and sometimes it’s pure chaos. Today, it ruled.
12:00 We arrive back home. I put Eli down for a ‘nap’…he didn’t really sleep. I wanted to crash but did need to straighten up the house since a tv repair guy was coming soon. I was nervous since the problem with the tv was some sort of buzzing sound with a frequency my ears can’t pick up at all. Shane was all ‘sell it girl!’ and I was all ‘oh crap, this might be bad.’
1-ish Shane shows up! Yippee! I don’t have to deal with the tv guy. While Shane and the tv guy do their thang I make a salad to eat outside because it’s friggin gorgeous and after snow on snow on snow I am not gonna waste this sunshine.
1-2ish Avery and I goof around outside for a while.
He eats his yogurt, I try to eat this absurdly large salad. I failed. It’s cool, I got Eli up and he finished it off for me.
2:15 My cousin calls. OH CRAP I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE PICKING HER UP TO GIVE HER A RIDE TO WORK BUT I FORGOT! I throw the kids in the car and we get her to work only two minutes late. Pretty good time for forgetting so badly.
3:00-5:00 we play outside and it’s awesome.
I also kept the sliding glass door open (from the kitchen to the deck) and did a good clean up in the kitchen while the boys kept playing. Then I went back out and found the sunniest spot I could where I chatted with Shane on hangouts and soaked up vitamin D. Selfie alert…oh gawd.
Sooooo not a day in the life without a selfie and yet, it’s super lame.
5:20 Shane gets home! He got caught up a little long at work and I was worried we wouldn’t see him before his small group meeting tonight. Our small group meets weekly…one week ladies, one week dudes. This is his week. But it was nice to see him for almost an hour before he had to leave.
7pm I don’t waste a second. I put those boys in pajamas, bed them and make tea. They crash in t minus 5 instances. Seriously crashed hard and fast. I love nice weather.
8pm which is right now. I’m enjoying tea and watching some Newsroom which is booooooring me out of my mind. Last season was alright, but this season is really lame.
So that’s it. My days are usually a little more busy but days like this are good too. Yesterday was like this too except for the gym and I might get used to it if I wasn’t so busy tomorrow!
