most of my days look a little crazy.
especially lately with my best friend's husband.
but if i were to bring you along on a typical day. this is how it would go down.
6:36am.. alarm goes off. and you would suspect, me being the morning person i am, to jump right outta bed right? wrong. i hit that snooze until the absolute last minute.
7:00am-ish.. finally rolling out of bed. make coffee and a smoothie and get myself ready for the day. depending on our schedules brandon will typically wake up before me and already have coffee made - or he will still be tucked underneath those warm covers where i sometimes end back up for some morning snuggles. [see - i told you.. until the absolute last minute!]
7:20am.. i am headed out the door for work. typically double fisting it like this.
8:00am-4:30pm.. workin' for them wages. a typical day in the office for me starts like this on the left.. and ends up like the right.
every night i have to have my desk spotless before i leave. i think this is the OCD in me.
in the morning it's refreshing to come in to a clean office. i usually sit on my exercise ball every day. many clients comment on how weird it is that i'm sitting on a ball. [just so y'all know - it doesn't do anything for my core.. am i doing something wrong?].
but lately i'm always cold. somehow i got the only office with no vents to bring me heat - so i sit in my chair and snuggle up with my blanket like this. we got another 4 inches of snow. spring.. where are you???
i get a half hour for lunch. it always goes by way too quick. if there is ever a day that i have extra time i will usually edit blog posts or respond to emails. but before i know it my lunch is over and it's back to work i go.
this was one of my more recent pranks above. i would say it was a pretty good prank. until i walked into our office this past saturday and had an entire garbage bag full of paper shreddings dump all over. that was a bummer.
ha.. just kidding. that was a delicious dinner i had at an influence conference bloggy meet-up with some awesome ladies on this side of the state.
but really.. we do like to try new recipes at least once a week. some nights it has to be a little quicker than others if we are busy in the evening. which is also most evenings these days. but here is one of brandon's favorite dinners.
he loves these grilled chicken pesto caprice sandwiches! and i don't blame him ;) they are pretty delish!
we finish cooking and then enjoy our meal together and clean up until 7:00 when wheel of fortune [also known as wof: pronounced woof] comes on except thursday's. on thursday evenings i have the joy of spending my evening with some wonderful college students.
7:00pm.. watch wof and then brandon typically talks me into keeping the tv on so he can watch jeopardy. man.. you would think we were old retired people from this - but i promise, we do have lots of fun!
from this point forward.. things look different almost every day.
monday evenings is my planning night. brandon has his men's college group. i do planning of all sorts. meal planning. blog post planning. emails. it's a great few hours to myself to gather all my thoughts and ideas and prepare for the week ahead. and then on thursday i review what i accomplished/what i still need to do and rearrange where necessary.
tuesday evenings we spend with my dad and grandma. we bring food to her house and watch wof with her ;)
wednesday evenings i am out of town at the hospital until about 10:30-11:00pm with rissa and then stay the night with her.
thursday evenings i spend at home with my college ladies when they're in town or i head back to the hospital with rissa again.
friday evenings are all over the place, depends on if we're out of town or home - but we typically do something adventurous together.
9:00pm.. relax and spend time quality time with brandon when we're both in town. sometimes we watch a movie/tv show, read, craft/projects, spend time outdoors or just talk. i adore these moments with my husband.
10:00pm.. we start to settle and get ready for bed.
10:00-10:30pm.. we continue talking and process our day until we fall asleep.
and then our day starts all over again in the morning!
so this is a day in the life of me! i am learning to be joyful in this season of life - with this schedule. but i also am looking forward and dreaming of what the next season of life will bring within god's timing!
link up with us and i look forward to taking a step into your life for a day!
