a day in the life of me

This is fascinating information people.
Cause I am sure you are all dying to know how I spend my days.

6:30: alarm goes off.
6:35: Chris nudges me to turn off alarm.
7:00: get out of bed.
7-7:15: make coffee, breakfast for Ellie, lunch for Chris.
7:20: Wake Ellie up.
7:30: Kiss Chris goodbye.
7:30-8:00: Hustle up a lollygagger.
8:00: Leave for school.
8:15-9:00:  Make my own breakfast, drink my coffee, internets.
 9:00-9:30:  Tidy up this disaster and others like it around the house.
(PS.  I hate my kitchen.)
 9:30-9:31: Admire Ellie's first Math Quiz score.
(I don't remember having quizzes in Kindergarten...)
 9:31-9:55: Hit the library and get some books.
Can you guess which one is the smutty one??
 10:00-11:00:  Dr. for physical.
3 things:
1.  Tetanus shots freaking hurt.
2.  They should remind you not to eat breakfast so you can get your bloodwork done.
3.  They should carry the Flu Mist so they don't have to go down to Peds to get one.
Seriously.
11:00-11:30 - Head to the grocery for bread, milk, and soda...and end up spending $57.
(There was lots I forgot we needed: paper towels, shredded cheese, grapes, etc...)
 11:30-11:35: Break up a brawl...
 and put someone in Timeout.
 11:35 - 12:15: Throw in a load of laundry, take out the trash, paperwork, etc...
12:15-1ish:  Make and eat lunch while watching the finale of Big Brother. 
Today's special: Fried cornmeal and grapes.
Don't judge me.
 1ish - Make up with someone.
 1ish to 1:15 - Put out new mums, tidy yard a little.
1:15-2:15 - Get my expanding bum to the gym.
It thanked me.
2:15 - 3:00 - Shower
 3:00-3:30: Take recycling to drop off and enter the dreaded "pick up" area at school.
Read and Wreck while waiting.
(Wreck This Journal will be a post all it's own soon.  It's neat.)
 3:30-4:30: Pick up Ellie...
 watch her monkey bar...
 with a friend.
 4:30 - 5:00 Homework.
Cause apparently our M's weren't up to par.
 5:00-6:30: Watch a movie and Ellie eats dinner, cause Daddy had volleyball tonight, and I din't want to cook a real meal.
 6:30 - 8:00: Bath, play, stories, bed.
Oh.  And I made my dinner too.  To be eaten later, cause:
1.  I like it just a titch stale.
2.  I get some kind of perverse pleasure while eating during Biggest Loser.
Isn't that awful??

So there it is, my day today.
Wasn't that fun!

I'm kind of jealous at Ellie's start time at school!! Chickie starts at 7:45. I try to get her there for the early bell at 7:35 which means we need to leave shortly after 7:10 (since we walk.) She has to get up early. :(

What a day! And I just had to laugh, because watching the Biggest Loser makes me hungry. Every time. :)

Ok, you're now on my favourites list lol
I loved this post, even if you thought no-one would!
I had to laugh at the grapes etc for the lunch, the cat close-up and then your having to eat whilst watching The Bigest Loser. You obviously have a sense of humour so I am your newest follower and shall be coming by often :)
Have a happy day!!
