A day in the life of....wait for it.....ME!

A wholly narcissitic post about my day

(Jennifer - you have just been double dog dared to do the same!!!)

6:15 - alarm goes off...kick husband....husband hits snooze.

6:30 ish get out of bed...hope the baby is still sleeping. Read Celtic Daily Prayer and Bible or alternatively get up with grumpy baby pour her a cup of milk and snuggle with grumpy baby while staring blindly at the wall.

7:00 - get myself ready for the day.

7:15 - wake 3 older kids. Have them get dressed and ready for the day. Start a load of laundry

7:20 - make and eat breakfast.

8:00 - pile kid into the car

8:15 - drop kids off at school

8:30 - work out (and then shower), or run errands.

10:00 - do some kid thing like read books, go to the library, bake, do playdough....

11:30 - get lunch on the table

12:00 - baby gets a nap

1:00 - do my paperwork, make dinner, do baking, cleaning (which I HATE), laundry or ah, blog, sometimes do official schoolish stuff with Bub (who is, by the way, hysterical....yesterday he told me he knew Michael Phelps was real because he just saw him going to work at the Tomato Store aka Fazoli's - where does he get this stuff!!!)

2:20 - run a super quick errand or not.

3:00 - pick up big kids from school and play "Best and Worst" on the way home. EVERYONE MUST TELL WHAT THEIR BEST AND WORST PART OF THE DAY WAS...NO EXCEPTIONS, EVER...IT'S MY RULE...BECAUSE, AFTER ALL, I DECIDE WHAT'S FOR AFTER SCHOOL SNACK...THE POWER KINDA GOES TO MY HEAD.

3:30-5:00 - afterschool snack, homework helper, kiddo stuff.

6:00 - Dinner, and pack lunches

7:00 - Baby goes to bed

7:30 - Big kids set out clothes for next day get jammied, and brush teeth, read.

8:00ish - bed time for kids. I blog or read, or sometimes do actual work...pretty much I'm toast by now.

9:30-10:00 BED (yea...not so much of a night owl)

REPEAT. REPEAT. REPEAT!!!!!

you shame me with your early morning effectiveness. ;) i like the stare at the wall idea best. i bet if i woke up before the kids, I could do that too and it sounds strangely appealing.

loved this! i too enjoyed your staring at the wall, which i do a fair share of myself, even if it's not early in the morning. :)
