I always read these “day in the life of” posts and think it is so cool to peek into someone else’s life for a bit. My day is not as glamourous as most other blogger’s because I have a full time job that I go to during the week, so that cuts into a lot of my time (It’s so annoying having to pay bills!). Here is an average day for me.
6:15 – J is up and ready to face the day. He is such a morning person and I am not! So I hang out in bed with the pups for a few minutes longer while he showers. Once he is out of the shower I am up and headed downstairs to make him a smoothie for breakfast.
6:30 – J is out the door and I am headed back upstairs to start getting ready. I wash my face, put on makeup and fix my hair all while jamming out to some hard rock taking dance breaks with Tiny.
7:00 – I am out of the bathroom and into the closet to get dressed. I try to lay out my outfit the night before to save time, but there are those days that I hate everything in my closet so that takes up some time.
7:15 – Headed back downstairs to make myself a breakfast smoothie, pack my lunch, let the dogs outside and just relax for a bit. I like to check my emails while watching reruns of Dog the Bounty Hunter in the morning.
7:50 – I am off to work. The commute is never the same, no matter which way I take. Sometimes it takes me 15 minutes and other times it takes me 30. I just never know.
8:20 – Arrive at work and start the day.
5:15 – Leave work and head home. Again, the commute is never the same but my average is about 15 minutes on the way home.
6:00 – Hit the gym or try to work out some at home.
7:15 – Start dinner with J. I like to plan ahead and know what we are making so that everything is prepped and ready to go.
7:45 – Finish dinner and make our lunches for tomorrow.
8:00 – Finally able to sit on the couch and relax for a bit. I usually pull out my laptop and work on merelynne.com, some of my freelance projects, or brainstorm ideas. I also like to watch TV with J for a bit.
9:00 – J heads to bed and I get the TV to myself. I have a few shows that I love to watch at night or I set it to record so that I can catch up on them later.
11:00 – Head upstairs, shower, and finally hit the bed for sleep.
That’s it. A typical day in the life of me.
