This week: A Typical Day
This typical day representation is going to miss a huge chunk of the day (work and school), since today is a weekday and the end of said weekday. I just figured out there is a schedule on Kelly's site to look ahead for future weeks' topics, but tonight I snapped all of my pics for March 5th's challenge. I'm sure it won't make a difference.
I get ready and leave first. EARLY. Everyone else is cuddled in flannel sheets and fluffy comforters, sawing logs. When I get dressed and put on my jewelry, I always spend a moment remembering how tiny they were. It wasn't that long ago, but the memory of the tinyness goes away so quickly.
Next Rick and the kids get up and get ready. He definitely has the harder morning job.
Fast forward to after work and afterschool. The minute we get home the kids jump on their bikes. And ride until it is dark. This bike riding time is so treasured since we just moved from an apartment that was on a busy street. Now we can ride safely and peacefully!
Once I beg the kids to come inside, it's homework time,
and dinner time (I can't keep the kids out of the pantry....ever).
After the typical bath, teeth brushing, potty breaks, etc., it's off to bedtime for the kids. Our new typical night (1st week of typical) is prayer time with the kids by their bedside. For most religious people, this is something that has probably been done from the very beginning. For us, we're new to this, and enjoying making it part of our daily routine.
Once the kids are put to bed, I go jogging and Rick gets to play Call of Duty.
After hanging out with my husband, watching tv, eating dinner, talking, laughing, playing on the computer and reading, it's off to bed to get jazzed up to do it all over again.
