Monday, Sept. 28: A day in the life. Take us through it with you.
Every morning I wake up, roll over and check the time on my phone before looking at all my social media. Because who doesn’t these days?! I usually have been stabbed and shoved out by puppy paws and legs and squirming all night long, in and out of the blankets but making for the best cuddle partners (other than my husband). Normally they wake me up for breakfast about an hour before I get up and out of bed for the day. I go feed them in the living room and lay back in bed awhile. When I finally get up, I go to the bathroom,brush teeth, usually throw my hair up into a pony or messy bun. I go through my closet until I find clothes which usually takes me about 30 mins, or hours. The dogs get taken out, go for a short walk and then when we come back in they get a treat for going potty.
I’m not much of a breakfast person so sometimes I’ll eat or sometimes I don’t. I do like cereal, a english muffin or smoothie/granola, when I go out I usually order french toast or a typical breakfast plate (eggs, bacon, sausage, toast). Now because I’m a stay at home wife and don’t work, I just typically clean a lot, draft blogs and post when I can, and mostly just watch tv and make plans with friends and family. I love to go out with my husband when he’s not at work and find new, fun things to do, go out to eat and spend time together. Most recently we have been taking the dogs for walks around the lake and they seem to love it as much as we do!
Then the dogs eat again lunch and dinnertime when I also take them out and repeat the process.
It’s now the humans turn to eat dinner. I am not the best cook in the world but I’m learning more everyday and when I make the effort I try new recipes/meal ideas. Usually it’s an easy throw together, fast, no prep kind of meal- protein, veggie and a starch. I like to cook pork chops sometimes or premarinated steaks. I also want to learn more about crockpot cooking so I’m trying that more lately. The husband and I eat dinner together and sometimes we also prep it and cook together. Most nights we will cuddle on the couch and we choose a show to watch together or play with the dogs and be silly for a bit afterwards. We are notorious night owls and most times stay up until crazy hours because well, we can. I want to get back on a regular schedule but it’s been awhile now since we were on normal people hours. Sean doesn’t have an 8-5 right now and I stay at home so we just have a lot of freedom. (I have outside income, but I don’t talk about it) Most of the year he will work, find jobs and stay busy with an extra bit of income. He’s previously been in landscaping/maintanence and security and has most recently been working at a few vape shops-see google.
I prefer to shower at night so I do that about every other day or so. The more I scrub my body and wash my hair, the worse off I am-so I’m finding the balance. I try to make it relaxing as much as I can. It’s one of my favorite things to do is to stand under the hot water and compress and rub the tension out of my shoulders. I wash & scrub my body, shampoo and condition my hair, shave and wash my face and rinse off really, really well so I don’t breakout. Sometimes I’ll apply body lotion or thick creme all over or on my most dry skin spots like elbows, backs of arms, chest, knees and feet. Masks are fun too and feel really good as well if I’m spoiling myself that night. I brush my teeth and brush my hair, put my hair into a bun and put the dogs into bed with us (yes we do sleep with our pups-furchildren, hello!). I like to try to read at night and I’m getting better at making a habit of reading a book or blogs at night before I hit the hay. If I can’t sleep I usually sit on my phone until I start to drift off. I probably shouldn’t do this- but it helps, so until I find a solution, oh well!
What’s your day in the life look like? If you want, share some points with me… I’d love to know what a “normal” day looks like for you! Thanks for reading!
