Several of you asked about what our daily schedule looks like. Part two is a glimpse into a day of our life. I put together my first "Day In The Life" post so you could see exactly what a pretty average day looks like.
4:23 a.m. My alarm goes off, I lay in bed check Facebook and emails then convince myself to get up and ready to go hit the gym.
5:06 a.m. I arrive at the gym ready to put in my last training run before my half marathon on Sunday. It always feels so weird doing your last training run. After I'm done I walk a bit and do some stretching.
6:21 a.m. I leave the gym to head home just as the sun is starting to rise.
6:31 a.m. I'm home. Russ is getting ready for work, the girls are asleep. I make the bed.
6:47 a.m. It worked, Emily is already awake.
8:25 a.m. I Switch the laundry around.
8:50 a.m. I head to the kitchen to mix up some wheat bread dough.
9:00 a.m. Marissa finishes her writing so I give her a 10 minute break. Emily chooses to help me bake instead of go play and that leaves Marissa pretty annoyed.
10:30 a.m. Yoga is over the girls are getting dressed and ready for the day, finally. Marissa goes to have her quiet/solo reading time and I attempt to fix the craziness that is Emily's hair.
10:40 a.m. Marissa finished her Junie B. Jones book and she moves onto her phonics work book. Emily has computer game time.
11:05 a.m. Emily is still playing games, Marissa works on writing dictated sentences.
11:30 a.m. We sit down together to work on our "my body" project. This weeks body part is the intestines... which means LOTS of giggling.
12:00 p.m. I am waiting on Russ to text me that he is headed home for lunch so I work on finishing lunch prep. I put the girls to work straightening things up.
1:05 p.m. Start piano lessons with Marissa. Then form the dough into two loaves to rise again.
1:30 p.m. Piano is over. We get shoes on and get ready to leave.
1:35 p.m. Leave to run errands.
1:44 p.m. Arrive at the Library. We look for books, play, and have computer time.
2:26 p.m. Leave the library.
2:39 p.m. Arrive at Aldi. Go inside to pick up milk and egg whites.
2:53 p.m. Leave Aldi with milk, egg whites, popcorn, cheese, lettuce, yogurt, bananas & cream cheese.
3:00 p.m. I put the bread in the oven to bake. Then we grab our snacks and sit down for science/story time. We are currently studying about seasons. We read books about animals during the winter.
3:20 p.m. Finish reading books, have the girls work on an art project to go with our story time. I sit down by them with the laptop to answer email, and read some blogs.
4:00 p.m. The girls finish their pictures and school is done! I send them to their rooms to clean.
4:15 p.m. I wrap up my blog reading time, start the girls bath and get dinner going.
4:22 p.m. Russ comes home from work and is doing some stuff out in the garage.
4:50 p.m. The girls are bathed. Marissa is ready for Awana and I am finishing up dinner.
6:00 p.m. I get back home and finish up cleaning the dishes. Russ and Emily look at our new library books. I check my email and catch up My Fitness Pal.
8:10 p.m. Marissa and Russ get home. We talk about Awana and she gets ready for bed.
8:25 p.m. Marissa is in bed, I go out to the garage and hang out with Russ.
8:40 p.m. Shower time for me, yay!
