Today I’m giving you a little (humorous) sneak peek into a typical day in my summer life, narrating by gifs of one of my favorite shows Gilmore Girls.
5:30 am: Ryan’s alarm goes off. There’s a 50/50% chance I hear it. Either way I remain in bed in a half asleep state.
6:15 am: Ryan says “Good morning Babe, have a good day, see you tonight, I love you” in the sweetest way possible. I mumble something like “Good night, have a good night, love you”. He then leaves for the day.
7:19 am: Second alarm goes off. I can’t hit snooze fast enough.
7:29 am: Third alarm goes off. I consider getting up.
7:32 am: I lie in bed and stare at my phone. My excuse is I must check the weather. You know, so I can see what to wear to work that day.
7:50 am: OMG how is it 7:50 already? What have I been doing for the past 18 minutes? (email, facebook, instagram, blog reading, twitter, repeat).
7:55 am: PANIC MODE. I must get up. I have to get up. But, I have nothing to wear. No time for make up. No time for cute outfits. I grab whatever is closet to me and is comfy and forgiving. I rotate the same basic and plain 6 summers dresses all summer for work. Stylin.
8:10 am: I take Maggie out and then load her up in the car and leave the house, out of breath.
8:28 am: Drop Maggie, our adorable poodle, off at doggie day care at my Mom’s house.
8:31 am: Arrive at work. Phew, only 1 minute late.
8:35 am: I turn on my office computer and then coffee. Coffee before anything else. I can’t function without it.
11:00 am: Hungry, but will be strong and wait until noon to eat my lunch.
12:01 pm: Sit down at my desk ready to eat my lunch. So hungry! Just as I’m about to put the first bite of salad into my mouth my boss runs over with an emergency. Something is wrong with our computers or internet connection. I’m recruited to try to fix it. This happens way too often.
12:40 pm – 2:30 pm: Focus on work. This part of the day always flies by.
2:30 pm – 4:30 pm: Depending on my schedule, work on freelance projects either at home or at client’s office.
4:30 pm – 5:30 pm: Go to my mom’s to pick up Maggie and girl talk for a good big. Involves either gushing happily about our days or venting. She’s the best listener.
6:00 pm: Plans disappoint or change. Then I either don’t have one of the ingredients needed to make the dinner I was planning (and I”m too lazy to leave the house again to go back to the store) or Ryan texts saying he’ll be home late.
6:40 pm: Work out. Either at gym or at home.
7:30 pm: Make dinner. If it’s this late, it’s usually some easy staple like salad, chicken and rice, mac and cheese, or pizza. This could explain the extra summer fun weight.
7:45 pm: Yay Ryan’s home! Hugs and kisses from me. Death scratches of excitement from Maggie,
I had fun linking up today with Leslie today for her Confessional Friday: Day in the Life!
Happy Friday! Enjoy your weekend!
