Oh boy! A day in the life of me. And oh what an exciting stage of life I am in right now. Today I am linking up with Holly from Where We Can Live Like Jack & Sally and Amy. They are hosting a link party to get to know other bloggers, so I decided to join in.
Well, my day starts with my phone alarm going off at 5:15, I wish that I could say that I jump right out of bed put on my workout clothes and head out the door, but in reality most mornings consist of my hitting the snooze button at least three times then finally rolling out of bed somewhere around 5:45 or 6. I get to wake up next to this adorable little bugger, we are co-sleepers around here so I get to
nurse snuggle this cutie all night long.
If I go for a morning run this is where it happens. I have to be back home waking up the buggers by 6:30. From 6:30 to 7:20 I feel like I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off getting lunches backed, kids dressed, and girls hair done (I HATE doing little girls hair, it is ridiculous). After dropping the big kids off at school I usually come home and put clothes on Rexy, since of course I took her with me in her underwear to drop off the big two, am I the only one who does that? After the little two and myself are dressed, maybe I was able to get a shower in here if Jon was still home, after we are dressed we usually run some errand now. Like the grocery store, isn't she cute playing her sisters DS in the "monster car" shopping cart.
It of course takes us like three hours at the grocery store so by the time we get home I make lunch and put the little two down for a nap. While they are napping I try to fit in a workout DVD and get the house picked up before the tornado of the afternoon rolls in. By 2:45 we are on our way to pick up the big kids, and yes, Rexy is usually in her underwear for pick up too because she undresses for nap and I wake her up to go get them, whatever, we never get out of the car. I probably should stop doing this though, inevitably one day we will have to get out of the car. After picking up the kids it is a whirlwind of snacks, homework, dinner prep, and refereeing. After putting the last bugger to bed around 8, I crash on the couch and either check out blogs or veg watching TV, at the moment we are watching episodes of Everybody Loves Raymond on Netflix. So there you have it, I live a pretty exciting life I know.
