unfortunately, my day today won’t be as straightforward as i intended it to be. i thought today would be a normal work-at-home and write-write-write day, but i was supposed to have a meeting yesterday that was cancelled at the last minute and rescheduled for today. so instead of working at home, i’m heading in to campus again!
it’s ok though. i’ve got plenty of things to work on in the lab while i’m there.
anyway, today’s post has been in the works since last friday. i’ve seen lots of bloggers do day in the life posts lately, most recently heather, and i wanted to do one too!
this is what a pretty typical friday looks like in my life in june 2012:
alarm goes off at 5:45.
actually get up at 6:01.
leave brad and the pups sleeping and sneak out to finish up my blog post and/or take a first pass at my inbox and google reader.
6:45am – brad gets up and the dogs are staring me down.
i let them stare for a couple more minutes while i make the bed.
then it’s time for them to eat breakfast. they have to lay down and wait while i get their food ready. (yes, jake lays like that every day. what a weirdo.)
pour some water and drink a bunch while the pups are eating.
then i take the dogs out to do their business.
7:15am – brad is done in the shower so it’s my turn.
[keeping it real...]
leggings and my crazylegs t-shirt –> that’s as good as it gets on a day when i stay at home.
i manage to dry my hair and put on a little makeup…
7:45am – it’s almost time to get to work. before i start i toss a load of clothes in the washing machine.
then i grab my coffee and get working. i start out my mornings standing at my laptop. i don’t like doing some work, like stats, on my laptop since the screen is so small, but it works perfectly well for writing and taking notes!
the pups sit like this the whole time i’m working at my laptop.
not distracting at all. i swear.
9:00am – still working, but i’m getting hungry so i make a quick smoothie to eat while i’m working.
i also take my vitamins after i drink my smoothie.
10am – i finish up what i was working on on my laptop, so i toss another load of laundry in the washer and switch to the desktop computer with the big monitor for some stats
12:00pm – lunch time! before i eat, i whip up a batch of cinnamon almond butter since we ran out that morning.
mmm, so drippy!
12:15pm – brad’s home for lunch!! i send the pups out to greet him.
and then i throw together my random lunch. bean salad, ham, and pickles!
i love it when i work from home because then brad and i get to eat together! it’s a fun treat seeing him in the middle of the day.
1:30pm – lunch is over and brad’s on his way back to work. back to work for me too after i do another load of laundry.
5:15pm - done with work for now! i fold all 3 loads of laundry.
6pm – it’s dinner time for the pups at 6:00 on the dot! i feed them, take them out to do their business, and throw some balls for them with the chuck-it. the neighbor dogs are usually out too, so it’s puppy play time for a good half hour! they love it.
6:30pm – the dogs are finally tired out so now i can eat! brad is home now too. he gets done early on fridays, which i love!
breakfast for dinner. yum! a fried egg with salsa, some potatoes, and spinach with a little drizzle of dressing. this is brad’s dinner specialty! he cooked.
we watch dinner in front of the tv – watching pawn stars!
7:30pm – we’re all done with dinner, so i wash the dishes, clean up a bit, and read blogs.
8pm - brad has to work on saturday mornings, so we don’t usually have plans on friday night. i spend my night working on iin modules. crazy town over here…
10:30pm – done with iin stuff, so i decide to go to bed. but first some puppy snuggles! <3
11pm – it’s finally time for lights out
see you tomorrow!
