Blogiversary – Year Two: A Day In The Life
Thursday, August 15, 2013
I always feel so silly documenting my entire day to post, but then I remember that I absolutely love looking into other bloggers lives when they do this day in the life thing. Plus, I did it last year, so I should keep the tradition alive. It’s kind of fun to look back at the previous years and see how daily tasks and the surroundings change.
5:00 AM – Coco comes meowing into the room. I snap my fingers and she jumps on the bed. I don’t understand how a 8 pound cat jumping into bed, feels like a 200 pound man. I pet her head a little and fall back asleep.
6:10 AM – Coco does it again, I pet her and then the alarm goes off. Too early! Hit snooze.
6:20 AM – Alarm goes off again. I turn it off and pick up my phone. I always do random things on my phone in the morning, so my eyes get adjusted to light, helps me wake up easier. I checked Instagram and blog comments before getting up.
6:30 AM – Time to get ready for the day. Shower and what not, get my clothes out for the day as well as Travis’ (yes, I still do this…)
7:00 AM – Letting my hair air dry today. Take some vitamins and allergy medicine.
7:10 AM – Eat breakfast, have my daily glass of orange juice and start the day’s to-do list. (I love lists!) I also grab some snacks for work and set them by my purse. I already have a lunch waiting for me at work, plus we have a meeting today, so there is usually leftovers.
7:20 AM – I venture outside to see if we have any progress with our grass seed that is planted in front of the patio – it’s really starting to grow in!
7:25 AM – I kiss Travis goodbye (even though he is still sleeping, lucky!) and I also say goodbye to Coco, who is ready to watch me leave from the window.
7:27 AM – Time to drive to work. Yes, my coolant light is lit up. My car leaks coolant, and when it gets low, the light comes on in the morning.
7:53 AM – Arrive at work.
7:55 AM – Before the work day begins, I get situated. Got to stay hydrated.
8:00 AM – I check my email, the office voicemail, make copies for a meeting and collate them. I set the meeting room up and get the coffee brewing for the 14 people that will be attending.
9:00 AM – More work tasks. Input checks, work on access and excel files, and I also start heating up the food for the meeting – tacos.
11:00 AM – Get today’s post out, and then check the food that’s heating up.
11:30 AM – I jammed the printer while making copies for the board meeting – oops! I manage to fix it though without calling the servicemen. Continue getting ready for the board meeting…
1:00 PM – There is leftovers from lunch! I make myself a chicken and a beef taco.
1:20 PM – I wash all of the dishes from the meeting, and then get back to work related things. I still haven’t gotten a chance to check my blog reader today, which makes me feel really behind on things.
2:30 PM – Went and got the mail, opened it, sorted it, and input the checks that came in.
2:40 PM – The meeting ends, time to clean up. Empty the coffee, wipe down the table, take out the trash… etc. All glamorous things.
3:20 PM – Take the work deposit to the bank.
3:45 PM – Back at the office. Pass the last 15 minutes by reading Whiskey Tango Foxtrot‘s post about her daughters birth.
4:00 PM – Time to head home!
4:25 PM – Home! Put coolant in my car and grab the mail.
4:30 PM – I’ve been fighting all day to stay awake and lightheaded (still have to figure out why this happens – probably iron) so I grab a peach and sit down to watch some of my DVR’d shows. The door bell rings and it’s the neighborhood “welcomer”. She drops off all kinds of stuff.
5:20 PM – Travis lets me know that he has to work late, so I attempt to take a nap, which never works. I end up sanding and peeling the walls in the bathroom.
7:00 PM – I make some pizza for dinner, and then get a bubble bath and read a good book.
7:40 PM – Travis is still not home, so I get ready for bed and catch up on some blog reading and texting my mom.
10:30 PM – Travis is soon going to be home, so I start to drift to sleep. Toss and turn until he finally gets home at 11:30 PM and then I have a horrible nights sleep for some reason. I feel like I only slept for an hour.
Thankfully tomorrow is Friday!
