For the first Friday in June, my #LifeBooksWriting topic is “A Day in My Life”.
Uh…prepare to fall asleep.
Because I’m a full time working mom with addictive habits that include reading and writing, there is not much time for excitement. So, here you go…
*I wake up around 4:30 am, with all intention to work out. Instead, I usually head into my very quiet living room, because the rest of the house is sleeping, and read or write
*The 6:30-8:00 am scramble: shower, brush teeth, fix hair, makeup quickly enough to get out of way of hubby before he has to get ready. Get up the Little because it takes her 4 years to go potty and we have to plan time for that. After the toilet struggle, brush her teeth, brush her hair, get her dressed. Iron clothes for me and Hubs, get dressed. Head to kitchen to prepare juice, snacks, lunch, coffee. Select stuffed animals special enough for the car ride to school. Get on shoes. Kiss Hubs goodbye.
*Motherf***ing traffic – 45 minutes of traffic to drive 3 miles to school and 5 miles to work.
*Work, work, work, work, work (8 hours on repeat)
*Motherf***ing traffic – hour to an hour and a half to drive 5 miles to school, 3 miles home.
*Hang time with the Little. Dinner. Bath. Storytime. Bedtime. Delay, delay, delay. “I want water.”, “I have to potty.”, “This teddy bear isn’t working for me.”, “My pillow is too purple.”, “My pillow isn’t purple enough.”
*Chores to tidy up the house.
*Alcohol of some variety
*A little laptop time (like right now) for social media and other A.D.D junk.
*A couple of hours watching TV and talking with the Hubs that seem to pass by in 5 minutes.
*Bed until 4:30 again.
It’s hectic during the week, but all in all, I love it. I am very blessed with everything I have – except the motherf***ing traffic.
