Mrs. G over at Derfwad Manor asked her readers to share a photo documentary of a day in their life. Here's mine.
It's always a little too early for me. So I hit this button. Sometimes I repeat this four or five times. (Hint: on Mondays it's usually more.)
While I laugh at the kids for having to leave for school at a ridiculously early hour, I catch up on email messages and read up on important stuff. Unfortunately for me, soon it will be too cold for them to ride their bikes to school. Which means I will have to drive them. But for now, I stick with laughing at them.
Time to clean up and get ready for my day. I recommend the toothpaste with the little minty strips. Mmm... winter fresh!
Halfway to work I get a call from the school because someone is having problems with their braces. So I turn around and we make an emergency trip to the orthodontist's office.
Eventually I get to the office. It's time to get to work!
But first I need tea. And if it's a good day, then I'll go to lunch with the girls. Or in today's case, I'll just sit at my desk and eat whatever Chef Stouffer is serving up.
Finally it's time to head home. It's rush hour so I have to watch out for a**hole drivers. And I keep my fingers crossed that I won't have to wait for a train at the railroad crossing.
The dog and the kids are so thrilled to see me! They run off to do kid things without me. Or just stand around and make goofy faces.
The RHPB usually gets home later, and we have a drink together. Sometimes it's beer. Sometimes I have a martini. Every once in a while he stops at Sonic and gets a Cherry Limeade for me. And sometimes if it's a bad day then we drink... lots of beer.
Then I am expected delighted to make dinner. Or we order a pizza.
The sun goes down. The kids are sent upstairs and we follow to threaten them if they don't go to sleep tuck them into bed. RHPB and I mysteriously turn into couch potatoes.
I crawl in bed, and usually manage to read a few pages before I just can't stay awake another moment. G'night!
