Happy Wednesday lovelies! I got a few requests for a post about what my day is typically life, and since I love reading these posts, I thought I would do one! I did one last year, that you can read here. Oddly, enough, not too much has changed and we keep a very similar schedule! This day was last Thursday, a pretty typical day for us.
6:45 am - Josh wakes me up as he leaves for work. Greyson is asleep with me and wakes up at the same time and announces he needs food RIGHTNOW, so I get up and grab him a fruit pouch, let the dog out, unload the dishwasher and make a hot Spark.
7:15 am - Avery wakes up and comes downstairs like a tiny zombie. She's NOT a morning person. I make the kids breakfast (oj, vitamins, muffins for Grey, cereal for Avery) and make Avery's lunch and snack for school, as well as a snack for me and some energy balls for breakfast. I get all of the kids' and my stuff ready to go (backpacks, my gym bag, and a work bag.) I publish my blog, link it up, and browse through a couple of blogs and some emails.
8:00 am - Avery is dressed and has made her bed (very grumpily) and Greyson is dressed. I make the rest of the beds, clean up around the house (I hate leaving dishes in the sink and a messy living room) and get myself dressed so that we can be out the door by 8:30.
8:30 am - We are about to head out to the bus stop for Avery's bus, but it comes early and we miss it. I get both kids in the car, drop Avery off at school and drop Greyson off at his and head for the gym.
9:15 am - 10:15 - I am at the gym working out. I hit the stairclimber today, catch up on some Hart of Dixie and Us Weekly. I sit in my car after and eat my breakfast.
10:15 am - 11:15 - My meeting got cancelled so I use the free hour to go to Starbucks, the gas station, the bank, UPS, and answer a call from our alarm system company. It's amazing how much I can get done alone in a little amount of time!
11:15 am - I pick Greyson up from school, head home and make him his lunch. He watches an episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and eats. I let him play for a few a little afterwards. I take the dog out, microwave my Starbucks that I have yet to get time to drink and scramble to get some work done.
12:15 pm - I put Greyson in his bed for some rest time with his iPad. He threw a huge tantrum trying to get the iPad so I let him have it only for resting. I hop in the shower and get ready for the day, makeup, hair (dry shampoo for the win!) and dressed.
1:00 pm - I make myself lunch (green soup and gluten free toast with hummus and veggies), reheat my coffee again, and sit down at my desk to do some work, read some blogs and eat!
2:00 pm - Greyson comes downstairs nap-less and ready to hang out. I put a movie he asked to watch on and sit on the couch with him and my laptop to do more work.
3:10 pm - G and I head to Avery's school to pick her up. There is a book fair today so we are shopping with her for a little bit and then heading home.
4:15 pm - We get home from Avery's school, do her homework and have a snack. She gets changed and cleaned up while I fold a load of laundry and we head out for her gymnastics class!
5:00 - 6:00 pm - Avery does gymnastics while I try to corral Greyson. He is basically a terror these days and has to take three times outs. My patience is TESTED.
6:00 pm - We head to dinner with Avery's bestie. It is our thing we do every week after gymnastics. It is moms and kids only this time. Greyson can't calm down so I call Josh to bring us a bottle of wine and take Greyson home. He's a good husband and does just that (praise hands!)
7:45 pm - We get home and I feel much better after a glass of wine. Greyson is already asleep so I get Avery ready for bed, clean up the house, run the vacuum, and get myself ready for bed.
8:30 pm - I sit on the couch with my computer and work on my blog, answer emails and get some work done, while watching tv with Josh. We are catching up on New Girl tonight - love me some Schmidt!
11:00 pm - I get in bed, read (the new Shopaholic!) in bed for a few minutes and go to sleep.
It starts all over again the next day!
This is my day. I would say it is pretty typical for me and the kids. I am wiped out by the end of the day, but I love our little life and everything we have going on! What's your typical day like? Any good tips for me to save time/manage it even better?
