Come spend the day with me

Day 12: Bullet your entire day.

Today you got me on a slow day.  We don't have rehearsal tonight, so I am getting caught up on things at home.

7:00-7:45 lay in bed and contemplate life (really just being lazy)
7:45 put in load of laundry
8:00 make grocery list
8:05 let dog out
8:08 let dog in
8:15 head to the grocery store
8:45 home and baking first cake
9:15 open computer and start writing post
9:30 put laundry in the dryer start a new load
9:40 put second cake in the oven
9:55 get back to blogging - okay lets finish this
10:00 Waking the sleeping dragon beauty
10:15 make third cake
10:30 sweep floors
10:45 fold current laundry
11:00 Take photo for photo of the day - edit this post to add to it or just wait until then to post it.
11:15 put load from washer into dryer start another load
11:20 load dishwasher
11:30 make breakfast/lunch for the girl
11:45 give the pug a bath
12:15 mix first cake with icing for cake balls

2:00-4:30 piano/voice lessons - lessons are only an hour, but her teacher and I have become extremely good friends so we talk while Elexis plays with her 3 and 4 year old girls.
5:00 mix the last cake balls
5:15 start dipping first cake balls
6:00 start dipping second cake balls
6:45 dinner
7:30 finish dipping last batch of cake balls
8:00 get everything packed up for tomorrow
8:30 pick up living room
8:45 make sure all the laundry is folded and put away
9:00 - midnight - read and comment on blogs (hopefully before that) and just generally surf the internet

I love slow days like this...baking helps me relax.  Tomorrow I will be packing up costumes we didn't use and getting the studio back in order.  We then will have 5 hours of rehearsal where I will hate my name by the end of the night.  I will also have poked myself with safety pins at least 5 times.  Hear "I can't find my ________" at least 60 times.  Answer that statement with "it is where you left it last night, go check your box".  I absolutely love it!!!  It's like summer camp.  I am looking forward to it being over, but not wanting it to be at the same time.

Ok, so I am going to hold off on posting until after I get my 11:00 picture.

Day 12 - 11:00 - My baby girl caught off guard and a natural smile.

  1. Beautiful! You are a busy little beaver. What are you making cake balls for? Be sure to take a picture of them to share with us!

    1. Thank you. I made them for the kids at the theater. I love to bake and kids will pretty much eat anything sweet. I definitely took pictures.

  2. She is beautiful and you are soooo busy for a slow day. I would hate to see a fast day !

    1. Thanks. Fast days usually end with my knees throbbing. :)

  3. Holy cow! That's not a slow day..... Don't take this wrong, but I'm glad I don't live your life. lol That is definitely a lot you have going on. Kudos.

    1. Haha!! I have come to the realization that if I am not moving I get antsy. Somedays though, I like to just lay in bed and read. I will be having one of those next week.

  4. I love that...

    let the dog out
    let the dog in

    I couldn't do this... I just can't... this one will be a skip for me... or at least just a general idea and not an actual one. :o/

    1. haha, your's would probably be something like "pick object up" "watch object being thrown again" "hear kid scream for object" "pick object up". With a three year old, life is always unpredictable. The let dog in, let dog out happens a lot during the day, but mostly between the hours of 9-11. I don't know what their obsession is out there at that time of night.

  5. Cute pictures, what are cake balls, never heard of that. Why did you have to bake 3? I hear ya on the pins...No matter how careful, used to do that alot when working on costumes for my daughter back in the day.
