We all have those days where it seems as if time is just whizzing by. And other days when we check the clock every five minutes and wonder why time is moving soooo slowly. My days have been fluctuating between the fast and slow, otherwise known as weekends and weekdays.
Here’s a glimpse into one of my days this week…
6:00am / Alarm goes off. Hit snooze and enjoy a few more minutes of semi-sleep. Ten minutes later, alarm goes off again. Turn it off and lay in bed a few minutes. Jessie’s been away for an early day at work. He comes in and we talk a little about the day.
6:20am / Outta bed. Jessie leaves for work and I skim through email, Facebook and Instagram. I also check out our blog. Sometimes it’s my first time reading the posts and it’s always fun to see what my co-writers have worked on.
7:10am / Head into the kitchen for some coffee. We’re going grocery shopping after work so I work on a grocery list and then water the plants outside.
7:47am / Make breakfast (Eggo waffles and sugar-free syrup) and get lunch ready for work. (Love this lunch tote from World Market.)
8:15am / Make bed and take a shower. I just found this pump conditioner at Target and I love it!
8:38am / Out of shower and do makeup and hair. And so begins the fun, shot-of-adrenaline race to work game I play each morning.
8:42am / Head to work. Notice service light/oil change indicator lights up in car. Mental note to call mechanic for oil change. Stop by bank to deposit checks and withdraw money for groceries.
Listen to “Elise Gets Crafty” Podcast on the way to work
9:05am / Get to work and clock in. Get the office ready for the day. Check work planner, check & answer emails, take care of anything that comes up with clients questions, etc.
Update my Day Designer personal planner with anything I thought of/remembered on the way to work.
11:00am / Boss comes in and we head into her office to take care of two major pending items before she travels and is out of the office.
11:45am / Morning snack. Today it’s yogurt and banana. I try to plan out two snacks during the day so I don’t get home starving. Work with my boss on various pending items. Take care of miscellaneous things around the office.
1:00pm / Get back to my desk to do a little bit more work and check on emails.
2:05pm / Heat up my lunch, which was some leftover Gimme Some Oven’s Tortellini Soup and it was delicious. I won these cute bowls in a raffle contest at work. So cute!
Eat and continue to go over any remaining pending items before my boss leaves.
3:15pm / Make sure I’m drinking my water. I got this great cup at Starbucks in Hawaii a few years ago. And the coaster is from Anthropologie.
4:20pm / Start to wrap up for the day
4:30pm / Pack up stuff in my Tory Burch tote. I love it cause it’s so lightweight and can hold a ton of stuff. And then head home. I call Jessie on the way home and listen to more of my podcast
4:50pm / Pick up Jessie and head to grocery stores. Then we get Subway for dinner
6:42p / Head home. Take out groceries, pick up mail, bring in trash cans, put groceries away. We were in the mood for cereal so we each picked up his & hers boxes of Cheerios.
7:08pm / Groceries are put away and we sit down for dinner (turkey & ham sub and I’d been saving up for those jalapeño chips!) and some episodes of How I Met Your Mother that I hadn’t seen. Makes me miss the show.
8:30pm / I start to get really sleepy so I go to the room to lay down. I’ve heard amazing things about Jewel’s book and as much as I want to read, I can’t seem to muster up the energy.
8:45pm / Watch a little more TV in bed. It’s comfort and it’s one of my favorite things to do. We’ve been watching Angie Tribeca and we’ve really been enjoying it. Clever and very Airplane-like humor.
9:10am / Can’t seem to stay away. So I get ready for bed and try to watch a little more.
9:20pm / Aaaand, I’m asleep. I usually go to bed around 10:30pm, so this is highly unusual for me, but much-needed.
