I usually do these hour by hour posts on days Hailey is home, but 2 times a week, she goes to school in the mornings. She loves it and I don’t mind the extra few hours to spend how I need (want) to. I feel like yesterday was a rather mundane day, but I figure one day I’ll forget what those looked like and will like a trip down memory lane. So hour by hour with a little WIAW thrown in, here is yesterday…
6:30am – Get up, feed Koda, head to the computer.
7:30am- Check on Hailey. I see she’s still sleeping so I rush to finish up the last couple morning to-dos.
8:30am- Hailey is up and we eat breakfast together. She’s always in a great mood in the mornings and stops to come give me hugs between bites. I soak it up before eyeing the clock and realizing we need to get a move on if we’re going to make it to school.
9:30am- We made it! I decide to set up shop at Panera. I answer emails then write a pretty personal blog post. I shed a tear in public. How embarrassing. Contemplate whether I will ever post it or if writing it was just the therapy I was after.
10:30am- Grab Koda and head out for a walk while chatting on the phone with a friend. Fresh air and a good chat revived me.
11:30am- Oops. No picture. Rushing to get back home so I can go grab Hailey from school. Typical.
12:30pm- Lunch with my sweet little monster while she fills me in about school. In case you were wondering Gracie and Emory were there and they played and had snack.
1:30pm- After reading books and putting Hailey down, my pregnant feet are asking for some rejuvenation. I grab my Mexi-stuffed potato and kick up my feet, intending for a quick lunch. That turns into watching an episode of Hart of Dixie. I’m probably the only one who watches that teeny-bopper show, aren’t I?
2:30pm- Enough of feeling worthless, I decide to tackle the mundane… laundry, cleaning up, emptying the dishwasher, and other fascinating chores.
3:30pm- Check in on Hailey. Realize she never went to sleep. That explains the banging I kept hearing. I go get her up for a snack.
4:30pm- Deciding we must take advantage of the beautiful weather, Hailey and I meet up with our friends at a new (to us) park. Adult conversation and watching the girls play always makes for a pleasant afternoon!
5:30pm- Head back home. Hailey eats and plays with stickers while I prep mine and David’s dinner.
6:30pm- David tackles shower and jammie time while I take out the trash and check the mailbox with my furriest child.
7:30pm- Hailey crashes hard and we are ready for some grub. We chow down while catching up on each others’ days.
8:30pm- We realize our shows must be on a hiatus because nothing new is available via our Hulu Plus. We throw on a Shark Tank for fun. I check my Nike Fuel Band, which I am liking despite not really understanding most of the readings. I shrug it off and eat a ball of my mom’s frozen cookie dough.
9:30pm- In bed. With the snoogle. Fast asleep. I’m seeing if stockpiling sleep is a real possibility. I’ll let you know in May!
There it is, the exciting life of a suburban mom! I’m sure BRAVO will be banging down my door any minute, begging to be able to tape my life for a show. 😉
What time do you usually head to bed?
Even when I’m not pregnant, David and I usually go to bed at 10. I feel like we are the only ones!
