This week’s challenge topic involves a day in my life. I don’t know if it’s that exciting but I’ll give it a stab. While you’re here, check out the other posts. You can find them here: http://www.longandshortreviews.com/miscellaneous-musings/wednesday-weekly-blogging-challenge-for-march-13-2019/
A day in my life tends to look like this:
Get up way earlier than I’d like because I’m the taxi to take the tot to school. Tot gets up on his own and takes care of himself in the morning, but since tot can’t drive…
While waiting for tot to get ready for school, I do part of the EDJ, which isn’t as evil as it might seem. I rather like the EDJ, but I’d also rather be sleeping instead. I also try to make sure the emails have been read/addressed and I’ve done a cursory check of social media. It’s not nearly as glamorous as it looks.
Once tot has been delivered to school, the dogs get fed and usually attempt to trip me. They like to run crazy through the house. Once they’re settled, I get my 2-3 mile walk in for the day. I’ve tried to walk every day and am up to over 180 miles walked for the year (my goal is actually 1000). I’m behind on my goal, but I’ll get there.
After a shower and clothes change, I tend to try to write. But Dh is home and there are chores to do, so until lunch I’m either attending to chores or whatever DH has in mind.
After lunch is writing time. I wish I could say I get to do this every day, but I don’t. Sometimes it’s impeded by vet visits, dentist visits or time spent with the Friends of the Library. Right now I’m spending a lot of time working on our upcoming author event.
I retrieve the tot from school, then once we’re home that’s about the time DH leaves. My afternoons are there to feed the dogs, meal prep, ensuring tot gets homework done, listening to drum/guitar practice (I don’t actively listen…it’s more like it’s thundering through the ceiling, so I have no choice), feed cats or they being to conspire my downfall, laundry and once the tot settles for the night, more writing. I’m a night owl, so I like to write later. I’d also like to sleep later in the morning, but one wish at a time… I carry the dog upstairs because that’s what she thinks I should do and crash.
So that’s my day.
What about yours? I’ll bet yours is much more exciting. Grin.
