A day in my life

Day 15 - A day in my life

I will describe my day today and what the proposed rest of the day is going to be like.

6:15 - Maroon 5 sings me awake.  I love you Maroon 5, but some mornings I really do not want to answer your wake up call.
6:30 - Wake the sleeping dragon beauty.
6:45 - Fix breakfast for Elexis
7:00 - Prod her along to finish getting ready for school
7:17 - Out the door, drop off at school, home by 7:40
7:45 - Start first load of laundry of the day
7:50 - Start the coffee pot
8:00 - Drink 1 cup of coffee, get dressed to go watch my friend's baby.
8:30 - 11 - Watch an 8 month old baby who has recently become mobile.  It's a crap shoot with this baby on whether he is going to be happy or whiny.  Today he was happy.  Last time I watched him, he screamed cried for a solid 45 minutes (with me trying EVERYTHING to soothe him), before finally falling asleep on my arm.
11:10 - Fold laundry already out of the dryer.
11:30 - Shower
12:00 - Start another load of laundry and fold more
12:15 - Finally sit down at the computer.  Start blog post

Collapse in bed to get ready for tomorrow.

Wednesdays are usually a busy day for me, but today seems exceptionally busy.  I am ready for a little bit of laid back days of summer.

Read about other's day at Story of my life.


  1. Yikes 6:15 is early!!! I sometimes have to wake up at 5:30 for 8am classes, so I know that feeling lol

    1. Up that early is not fun when all I want to do is stay curled in my bed, but I do it. :) 5:30 is really early too. I remember those days in college too.

  2. Moms are the best, the energy and multitasking abilities never fail to fascinate me. I had to smile at the Maroon 5, I had a phase where I'd play their songs non-stop inside the car from track 1 till the end of their album, then back to track 1 again.

    1. I have loved Maroon 5 since they first came out. My daughter loves them too. My husband tolerates them. Moms do have a lot of multitasking abilities. I am sometimes amazed at that myself.

  3. Why oh why can't you live closer?! I've ALWAYS wanted to learn to sew and have tried following online directions. I think I'd do much better if I actually had someone standing over me. Sounds like a busy day for you, especially keeping a little one. You're a good friend to donate that service, lol. :-)

    1. We will get together one day, even if it is just to teach you to sew (even though I know there would be so much more than Turns out the baby had double ear infections while I was watching him. I kept telling his mom he was pulling at his ears. :(

  4. Such a busy day, I need a nap just reading it.

    1. Ahh, naps would be nice. School is out in 2 days...I have to keep repeating the phrase. :)

  5. How is it that we can keep this busy?

    1. I have NO idea. I think we just take it one step at a time. Some days I am in wonder how I got it all done.
