Well, friends. This is probably not the most exciting day you will read about today. I didn't do a great job of taking pictures, either. But it's a real day in our house (Monday to be precise), so here you go!
7:00 a.m. My alarm goes off. Ten or fifteen minutes later, I convince myself to leave my cozy bed.
7:30 a.m. Allergy medicine has been taken, one glass of water down, and first Twitter check of the day is done. It's time to make lunch and breakfast for our resident second grader.
7:45 a.m. I hear a familiar cry of "Mama, Mama!" and head back upstairs to get the kids out of bed. Everyone gets a bagel and they settle in for breakfast and reading (they are my kids, reading is a part of most things).
8:30 a.m. After a small toddler meltdown over not having the Brave movie and several reminders for the big one to brush his teeth, D is out the door to the bus stop with his dad. BG settles in for movie (Robin Hood) and I grab some breakfast. The husband and I make some snarky conversation before he leaves for work and then I unload the dishwasher and finalize our grocery list.
10:30 a.m. The movie is finished, a snack has been had, and an uncooperative toddler is finally wrangled. Off to the grocery store!
12 noon Home from the store, put the food away, lunch for the little girl, then it's time for a story and naptime!
1 p.m. Lunch for me and visiting some other blogs while watching The Good Wife. Did some writing, blogging, and tidying around the house.
3:30 p.m. Off to pick the boy up from the bus! Home for snacktime, which somehow went from apples to ice cream.
4:30 p.m. I help out one of the girls from church with some music and the kids get to run around with her brother.
5:45 p.m. Time to start dinner for the kiddos. The husband has a late meeting tonight, so the kids get mac and cheese and broccoli.
7:30 p.m. Everyone whose age is in the single digits is in bed. Whether they are sleeping or not is yet to be determined. We usually hear a very soulful rendition of "Let It Go" before 8 p.m.
7:45 p.m. - Time to make some bread! This was the first round. It has to proof in the fridge for a while before getting kneaded some more and having a second rise. My favorite thing about this recipe is that I can leave the dough in the fridge overnight and deal with it tomorrow!
8:30 p.m. Talked on the phone to my mom, and then to my best friend who lives on the other side of the country.
9:30 p.m. Husband finally arrives home after his meeting. We chat about our days and the joys/frustrations of the world.
10:00 p.m. Decide it's too late to make dinner, order pizza, and catch up on Once Upon a Time and Quantico.
Midnight - Goodnight!
