A Day in the Life....

I always love reading everyone else's posts like these ... the little glimpse in the day of the life.

I'm going to try & make every 15th of the month my "day in the life" that I capture... who knows when it'll be posted.  Hopefully anytime between the 16th to the end of the month.. no pressure.

It'll be interesting to see how different days on the 15th play out too.

So anyways - here's my first day in the life...

May 15, 2017

1:00am... we're really starting the day off early.  Actually, if I'm going to document the full day, this is officially the 15th.  The clock even says so.  Bathroom trip with my blind boy.

5:10am - hitting the snooze button.

5:28am - Finally getting out of bed.  Harvey isnt happy one bit about it being Monday either.

See Harvey's bed rail under Harvey's head.

5:31am - Be glad I'm sparing a picture of this.  My little blind boy threw up EVERYWHERE.  That's how you start a Monday morning exactly right.  Cleaning up puke & throwing blankets away just minutes after getting up.... hope this isn't a sign of how the day is going to go.

5:45am - Time to slab on the make up & cover these sleep baggy eyes.

6:20am - Eating breakfast... & I'm running late. I should be getting my stuff together to walk out the door & I'm just now sitting down to eat.  Breakfast for the day: eggs with cole slaw on a tortilla & hot sauce. mmmm... delicious.

6:30am - Cant leave without getting my dog's treats ready for when I leave. Every morning.  They know they get special treats when I walk out the door for the day too. #spoiledbabies

Those are bones filled with peanut butter - Bruno doesnt get PB ... tore up bones (each seperate kinds for each dog) & apple slices... the snacks on the end are mine for work. Cant forget momma's snacks!

7:10am - Made it to work. Surprised I'm only 10 minutes late after the morning I've had.

7:15-8:00am - Get caught up on email & making copies of paper work.

8:15 - 10am - Monday's deposit. Monday is always my big mail day & it takes awhile to get the deposit done.

10:15am - Whew - deposit done & now time for a morning snack.  These Fage Crossovers are AMAZINGGGGGGG.

10:30-12:30pm - Opening mail & sorting invoices & entering in the computer

12:30-12:45pm - Have to pay a Euro order for some motorcycles for one of the 3 companies I do the books for. International wires always make me nervous.

12:45pm - LUNCH!!! I had intentions of sitting outside because it was a nice day... but then felt like it was a little too warm... only to freeze inside & felt wonderful defrosting walking outside.

Quinoa Salad... THE BEST!
I totally customize it my way too - Add Quinoa / add spinach / take off olives/change dressings

1:50pm - Back at work & sending out Property Taxes for all the companies I deal with.  All of these are due today. Glad I did them last week & had them signed & ready to go for the day.  Exciting stuff, huh?

3:55pm - FREEDOMMMMM!!! outta work.

4:15pm - Stop at Starbucks on the way home. I HAD to this time. I had a Starbucks challenge & if I got one more star, which expired this day, I would get an extra 75 stars.  I already have 6 free drinks on my card.  I'm all about collecting those stars.  They pay off for me!

4:40pm - Made it home after listening to more of my audiobook on the drive home.  I literally laughed at one part of the book where he's talking about puking before the show & no one caring to tearing up & seriously crying over a story of a man he sat next to in a vet's office who was blind & had to put down his seeing eye dog. Oh gosh... I was blubbering on that.

4:45-5:00pm - Time to get Harvey Dent's energy ran out by throwing frisbee.

5:15 - 5:50pm - Workout time. I was going to start a new running plan today but its HOT.  & its only getting hotter through the week & really, me & running just arent feeling each other right now. So I made the call to start another round of 21 Day Fix... my body needs the muscle toning.  Plus, I can do it in the AC (I wish I would have taken a pic of the sweat - so much for said AC)

5:50 - 6:00pm - Folding laundry that was running while I was working out.  #multitasking

6:00 - 7:00pm - Ricky got home & we sat outside in the shade & played with Harvey & caught up on the day.  He had picked up some Chick Fil-A for himself (I didnt want anything) & we just took an hour out of the day to relax & see each other in the hustle of a day.

that dog SOARS for a frisbee catch

7:15pm - Dinner time.  Since Ricky picked up a sandwich for him & I wasnt that hungry, my dinner for the night was just snacking on stuff.  I had some chips... an apple... a half sandwich.

7:30pm - Cleaning my kitchen.  I think I could sweep all day long & 10 minutes later, have another load of grass on my kitchen floor again.

8:00pm - Dancing with the Stars. Monday nights at 8pm, you ALWAYS know where to find me.

10:00pm - I love texting with my friend during shows - especially when they have shocking endings.

10:59pm - After watching some random TLC show & some Keeping up with the Kardashians (I never watch that - dont know why I got caught up in this episode), finally turned off the TV.  Got my little man all tucked in for the night.  Praying for a puke free night.

& preparing myself to get up with him in 3 hours for his first bathroom trip of the night.

There you go - a typical, usual day in the life...Exciting stuff, huh?


  1. Loved this post! Days in the life are always so fun! Looks like you had a great Monday!

  2. Great post! I remember those days/ nights of getting up with an old dog. It literally is exhausting! I hope the rest of the week went better.

  3. Ooh - neat post! I'm intrigued though ... eggs and cole slaw?? I've only recently started seeing these type of posts and I really like them! My day would literally put everyone to sleep ...

  4. You have such early mornings... I could never do that. Isn't it funny that on the days we record our daily doings we end up doing stuff out of the ordinary?? (Late for work, watching odd TV shows!)

  5. You love on your little blind boy so sweetly. He's a blessed little furry guy. <3 And Harvey's feelings on a Monday kind of reflect mine on a Monday too. :o) I love your day in the life post.

  6. Oh man, I hate when a Monday starts out like that. I always think...is this how the rest of the day or week is going to go??? I got three purchases in the SB challenge too. Come on free drink!!! It's the little things, you know? That salad you get from Panera looks amazing!

  7. Poor little guy, I hope he has a non-sick night soon! I enjoy these posts, glad that you wrote one. Sometimes we have "snack night", where we both just eat random small things.

  8. It was fun reading about your day. Poor Bruno. I so hate to see a dog being sick. My sister and her husband had to put their dog down this weekend and then low and behold my husband's brother and his wife had to have their dog put down on Monday. Such sad times. I guess it's all part of life, but it sure is a hard part.

  9. You are an early bird, my friend. I can't do it when I have no choice but I am a night owl. And I'm still sleeping (hopefully) at 7:00 AM. It's always interesting to see how someone spends their day. Mine would mostly be staring at computer, cursing and hugging my cat. :D

  10. i love day in the life posts, i'm so nosy.
    that frisbee action shot is fabulous! and that quinoa salad looks SO good.
    oh cleaning up vomit first thing in the morning, awful! hope you are puke free for a few nights.

  11. I love Day in the Life of Posts and need to do one for next week or the week after. thanks for sharing a little bit of your life with me.

  12. I do love day in the life posts too!
    Awesome about the 6 free drinks you have earned!
    It's okay if you watch the Kardashians, LOL Truth be told I watch them too, but it's not just at random LOL me and my sisters watch them, guilty pleasure!
    Totally get the text friends during shows. I don't get to watch much TV but my sisters and I on Sunday's watch the same show and we do the same thing oh and if it's Bachelor season, yeah we are constantly texting each other during those episodes LOL

  13. I love this post! I might have to do it too! Let me know the next time you do it, and let's link up on our blogs!

    Love that I made your blog for the second time this week! Woo hoo!

  14. Whew!! I will say my day sometimes begins with cat puke and sometimes ends the same way. The perils of being a fur-baby mom.

  15. I enjoy these posts too. Oh pets, they definitely have a way of derailing our best laid plans. But we love them, and we'd do anything for them. :) 10 minutes late isn't too bad!! I'm lucky that KC gets up super early, so it's easy for us to adjust to those things if we have to. Though, I've certainly been late before! hehehe Are you loving that book?!?!?!??!?! I just finished the first two and have that one on hold. I'm so excited!!! Girl you and me both with the starbucks. :) XO - Alexandra

    Simply Alexandra: My Favorite Things

  16. This is a fun post! I've never done one before but I always enjoy reading them. You definitely have an early start to your day but I love that you are out of work around 4pm. I'm not done until 5:30-6pm and it's really starting to wear me thin. I hope you've had some puke free nights in there, and I hope your pups are doing ok. Beautifully Candid

  17. Girl and I thought I had a crazy day! You have me beat!
