A Day in the Life.


Tapped that snooze button yesterday, finally rolled out 20 minutes later to a loud thunderstorm. All it took was one bright bolt of lightening for Madison to jump over my head in an attempt to climb into bed with us. A knee to the face will get you going real fast.


5am to 6:30am gym. Wednesdays I typically do legs, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and even a workout couldn't pull me from my bitchy funk. I hate walking around with a cloud over my head so I vowed to change my attitude.


The rain continues, we don't have any flooding, but Aiden's school has been under repair from the hail damage for 2 weeks and they can't even START working on it until the rain stops. I have a feeling it could be close to another week or even two until he can go back. 


Oliver literally texts me or calls me every morning if I'm even 1 minute late. I had two choices - get gas or let him get in a car with only 2 miles left to the tank. I got the gas.


7:30 - 9am I take a shower, hang out with BAE BAE, make and eat breakfast, sometimes blog, and get ready to go upstairs and work. Every other Wednesday my cleaning crew comes, so I had to wash the sheets for them and pick up the toys so they can do the floors.


Usually one of the girls shows up around 9 and we go upstairs to start working. Typically we start with answering emails, comments, or taking care of issues in the shipping system. I check on shipments and reorder needed items, then put together any email blasts that need to be sent. We are having our first ever Sip and Shop at the house this weekend so we talked about what items we still needed to get and make a plan to go shop. Oma shows up around 10 or 11 to watch Aiden so Oliver can begin working around noon. They go for a walk and play until he goes down for a 2+ hour nap around 1pm.


11am to 1pm: SK and I hit up Trader Joes and Target to get stuff for the party, mostly alcohol. We did happen to find a few items we needed, like the new Boom Chicka Pop flavors and a few bottles of wine for me to try out. 


We go to lunch at Scotty P's - I really wanted the onion rings so I just got a chicken breast on the side.  


1:30 to 3pm: We get home to several boxes of new inventory so after unloading the car we head back upstairs to hang and check invoices. I weighed out some of the new Boom Chicka Pop - so good! We got in some cuteeeeeeeee new items, lots of clapping going on. We check emails and help Oma with any orders she had trouble with - she will pack orders while Aiden is napping. 


3 to 4:30pm: Madison gets home from school around 3, she is required by My Law to do her homework after changing into her pjs and getting a snack. Aiden wakes up around 3:45 and usually ends up upstairs with me playing with toys or watching my phone. The rain has canceled all soccer plans for the week so we are free for the night.


4:30 to 5pm: I stay upstairs and work until around 4 or 4:30 depending on if we have to go to any activities. Yesterday I was dying of hunger, I had to do something to keep my fingers out of the pantry. I resigned myself to putting away my huge basket of laundry. 


5 to 6pm: I made it to about 5:01pm before I decided to make dinner. I was not in the mood to cook anything fancy so I opted for Trader Joe's Orange Chicken over broccoli and riced cauliflower. I also have my nightly glass of wine, I've been experimenting with a glass a night to unwind. I'm not a lover of alcohol, but I'm starting to enjoy it just a bit. It calms me down and I've found a few types that I like - Cupcake Moscato, Relax Riesling, and a Sauvignon Blanc. 


6 to 7pm - I try to catch an episode of something I like - right now it's Jane the Virgin on Netflix. Most often this is interrupted by Aiden crying, Madison roller skating, doors slamming, Oliver complaining, or my phone ringing. I usually prefer to watch from my phone while I'm getting ready in the morning or cooking dinner. 


7 to 8pm: Hump day bath time, we scrub them down so they smell good. Aiden will only stay in for about 10 minutes with his sister, I'm pretty sure she annoys him on purpose so she can have the tub to herself, she'll play pretend in there for a good 30 minutes. After bath's they will both play for a bit before bedtime. 


On Wednesdays I usually refresh my spray tan, typically just my face and chest as those fade the fastest. We have a electronic situation in the house, Madison has the only iPad and Aiden now takes over my phone and gets really mad when you take it back. As shown. 


8:30pm Aiden gets put to bed and Oliver is finally done working, I make a nightly treat if I have the macros left and we usually watch a show together. Sometimes if I'm feeling frisky I'll clean the kitchen, last night not so much. 


I go lay in bed to watch a show on my phone and get sleepy, this one follows me to plead her case to sleep in our room. She can out argue me pretty much any day until I look her deep in her eyes and say 'you are really annoying me right now, go. to. bed.' Usually all lights are out by 9:30 or 10pm.


Wake up and do it all over again.

  1. Love it. I think there is nothing wrong with a glass of wine each evening. I try to either have tea or wine as a treat in the evenings. I am a big lover of white wine.

    I don't know how you get up that early. I get up at 6 a.m. and whine about it lol!!

  4. I bought a bottle of the Cupcake Moscato to try a couple of weeks ago. It's been chilling in the fridge since then waiting for me to get over being sick.

  6. I hope this isn't too nosy or seem like I'm prying, but if you don't mind sharing...what does Oliver do for work? My husband really needs a career change and something he could work from home doing would be AMAZING!

  7. Love it! I like watching Netflix while cooking or cleaning the house. It just makes time fly by and I do NOT enjoy cooking, but someone has to do it. Also, if you want to send your cleaning lady my way, I would totally NOT say no. Just saying.
