A day in the life...

Thursday, July 24, 2014

I have seen a few of these posts lately, and I havent scheduled anything for today, so I am going to share my day with all of you... yeah Im super excited about it too. You're welcome ;) jk!

4am: My alarm goes off.. this is what time I need to get up so I can run and then get some things done around the house before work.

Psh F that noise I roll over and set my clock for 5am because well who cares if the laundry doesnt get done one more day, its been sitting in the dryer for 3 days anyway.

5am Alarm goes off and I actually get up this time and I frantically go searching for my workout clothes. You'd think that I would lay them beside the bed or something after all this time but nope.

5:10-6:00 Running around the neighborhood. It looks a little something like this, running and I have a love hate relationship.

6:00- 6:15 Shower ... usually it only takes me a few minutes because I go a day or two without washing my hair I dont just stand there and procrastinate but some days....

6:15- 6:30 I throw my hair up in a messy bun, slap some eye liner on and get dressed. I pull the first thing I see out of the closet and thats what I wear. I dont have time to be a fashionista in the mornings!

6:30- 6:45 I tip toe around the kitchen and prepare my lunch and try to make my breakfast without waking the kids up. This week I have been extra productive because I actually planned my meals ahead of time. Breakfast was an egg white omelet bake I made Tuesday and have been eating on all week (it made 4 servings) and lunch is leftovers from the night before. This morning I decided to go ahead and stick dinner in the oven so all I would have to do is heat it up when I get home tonight BOOM!

6:45 Time to get the kids up... my oldest gets up really easy hes ready to play that damn playstation as soon as his eyes are open.. Jokes on you homie I dont wake you up in time for you to play anymore in the mornings LOL. However, my 2 year old is like his mama and we crave sleep so getting him up is like this...

7:00 we're out the door, I drop the kids off at daycare and sitters and I head to work!

7:45 Walk in to work make the bosses coffee and turn on my computer. Check emails and then log on to blog lovin.... got blogs to read DUH!

8:00-10:30 Do random things the boss asks me to do but mostly read blogs and answer emails.

10:30 Im starving give me a protein shake.. I am really OCD about the times I eat too... I eat at 6:40, 10:30, 12:00, 3:00, and 6:30 and this doesn't change. I know that's weird!

10:40- 12:00 More work and then HEY lunch time!

I never take a lunch break.. however here lately I have because of THIS but usually Im just sitting at my desk stuffing my face.

12:30- 3:00 more work stuff. internets and wanting a nap.. oh and snack time! My life revolves around food I am a sad human.

3:00-4:30 Desperately watching the clock praying for 5:00 to hurry up!
4:30-5:00 Clean the office and scurry out to my car!

Not really I have kids so I pick them up and head home, but sometimes I think about stopping at the bar. *sighs*

5:40-6:30 Prepare Dinner/ EAT

6:45-7:00 get kids bathed and in bed. Yes my children have a 7:00 bed time and they are fine with it, in fact little man can barely keep his eyes open by 6:50.

7:00-9:00 Watch TV, Spend QT with my man, bubble bath then bed.

My life isn't very exciting but at the end of the day Im beat and extra ready for bed. I miss all those naps I didnt want in Kindergarten!


  1. I love some sleep also! My son goes to bed at 8 but if we had less to do he would be in bed at 7am. That kid wakes up ready for the world though, no need for momma to get him up. lol

  2. Our lives are very similar! (I'm at my desk reading blogs right now! Hehe!) I don't know how you get up so early though. Geez. Summer is my favorite because my daughter goes to camp and the bus picks her up at 8 am. I don't have to leave until 8:40! That means we get to sleep until 7:30 am!!!! Bliss. In an ideal World I would sleep until 10 am. Thanks for posting this!

  3. I love seeing a typical day for everyone. I get up at 425am to work out in the mornings so I feel ya!

  4. I would love to be asleep around 9 every night! I need to change my nightly routine.

  5. Must be nice to have a job where you're able to read blog online half or all the day. All the jobs I've ever had didn't allow getting online and had things like that and facebook and all blocked. Figures b/c at work you shouldn't be online so that's why its like that around here. You should work first play later. :p

    1. Well in my down time I am on the internet, if I have work to do it comes first. I do my job very well and I am always ahead of schedule therefore I have a lot of down time so yes work comes first.

    2. I read blogs during work too. It doesn't mean I don't get work done. I do it during my small breaks... kind of like cigarette smokers who get to go outside every hour or so, I just read blogs for a little bit haha.

    3. Exactly, I sit at this desk for 9 hours straight... I think I am entitled to breaks throughout the day especially if all my work is done.

    4. But laney... You don't even have a job PERIOID! So you have no say. So sit the fuck down and shut up.

    5. I wish I could edit. I meant PERIOD. I'm too pissed right now. I blame the fat fingers.

  6. Gosh girl, I was tired by your day at 7:45 AM! HAHA, I thought I was busy, but you are super woman. I don't know how you run first thing in the morning, but you go girl -- that is awesome.

  7. God I wish I could get the kids to bed by 7!!!
    We are just sitting down to eat dinner at 7, then its a mad scramble to get them to bed by 8:15 (even the 3yr old) And they get up at 6am too?? Sadly I think they take after me and do not sleep much.

  8. I was thinking that too... I totally admire you for running!!! I am so glad I have a teenager now and I'm done with daycare. Those days were so hard and hectic... and expensive. Cheers to you for all that you do!!! Being a working Mom is hard!!

  9. Oh man! You wake up wayyy too early for me. I have to wake up at 640 on school days and that's early enough for me.

  10. Girl, you wake up SUPER early! Glad you're able to get everything done that need to be done! Superwoman!

  11. Ugh my oldest and youngest are a pain to wake up in the morning! Like, I know it sucks but I have to get up and wake your ass up too so just get up already!

  12. 4 am??? Yikes That super early but I love how your day went!
