A day in the life of me

I thought it might be interesting to share my Wednesday with you. 

5 am Wake up
5-5:30 check e-mail/blogs
5:45-6:45 workout (ran 4 miles)
7:00-7:30 breakfast, pack lunches, get boys ready for school (My Dad usually takes them), clean up everything
7:30 take shower get ready
7:50 leave to take boys to school
8:20 home
8:20 check e-mails
8:30 decide to make apple pie
9:30 clean up kitchen and start cleaning house
bathrooms, windows, mirrors, dusting all surfaces, vacuum, change sheets on all beds, sweep, dust mop, wet mop, do all laundry, fold and put away, e-mails, phone calls, morning snack
Noon: lunch
1:00 leave for school
1:30-3:00 volunteer at school (normally on Thursday, but today was special, I will be there today too)
3:30 home. Snacks, color Mom's hair, bake cupcakes and frost (teacher birthday today)
5:00 start dinner.
5:30 boys get showers
6:30 dinner
7:30 boys to bed
9:00 shower for me then off to bed.

This is a pretty typical day for me, normally instead of volunteering at school that time is allotted to playing with M and responding to e-mails. I normally get my shower in before 7 but I was running later so it was a bit later. That and my wonderful Dad usually takes the boys to school for me, but as it is duck/goose season I am back to being the school bus.

I don't usually do my Mom's hair or make cupcakes, but those are the random things of life that get thrown in all the time.

My life is pretty regimented and because of that I am organized and I always know the next thing that needs to happen. I like it and it keeps me centered, though I know it drives J crazy more times than not.



  1. I loved reading about your day. :)
    My days are pretty organized too, but maybe not so much so because while they start off all the same - up at 5:30/get ready/leave for work at 6:30 a.m./ the time between 6:30 a.m. and 5:00 varies depending on the day because during the week, I'm at the office which varies on the end time, depending on the day, and the rest of my time is pretty much free time to fit in personal projects, time with family, chores. I'm pretty schedule-oriented too, but Jim has taught me to be more spontaneous. Cleaning, for instance, rarely seems to be on my agenda anymore.

  2. I also found interesting.... You run 4 miles in an hour. I walk 3 miles in an hour. Guess I'm slow, lol. Still happy with those daily accomplishments though. ;)

  3. I am amazed at all the cleaning you accomplished between 9:30-noon. Way to go!


Thanks for stopping by!
