Sometimes I wonder how I can get done as much stuff in a day as I do. A lot of my day is wishing the work day was over so I can get sh*t done but then when the work day is over I basically space out and go to sleep. So, I decided to log my day for you. My daily activities vary, depending on if a kid decides he wants to smear poop everywhere or if the daycare gods grant mercy upon me. Here is what a typical day looks like for me:
5:00am – Husband’s alarm goes off. Sometimes I don’t hear it, most of the time I do. Husband snoozes his alarm.
5:??am – Husband actually gets up. I either don’t notice because I’m dead asleep or he wakes me up and I barely respond.
5:45am – Husband wakes me up. I pretend not to notice until I realize I have to get up too. I don’t want to leave the warm bed so Husband is kind enough to throw clothes at me so I don’t have to leave.
5:50am – Throw clothes on and go to the bathroom to brush my hair.
6:00am – Husband realizes that he’s running late so he hurries me along and I somehow end up downstairs as he’s rushing out the door.
6:05am – Husband leaves and I sit on my phone to play Pokemon Go and browse cute videos on Facebook.
6:15am – Start working on my blog.
7:00am – I turn brain dead and end up on my phone or go watch Netflix or Hulu.
7:30am – My mom’s dog comes downstairs and starts attacking me in kisses. Sometimes she gets so excited she pees so there’s that.
7:45am – Daycare parents start coming.
8:00am – Mom leaves to get us energy even though she said last time that it was the last time.
10:00am – I change 9 diapers.
11:00am – I try to eat while feeding 12 other kids. It doesn’t work. I give up and wait until later. Later doesn’t usually come!
12:00pm – Naptime. Finally. I try to work on blogging some more while the kiddos sleep.
1:30pm – This is about the point in time where my brain dies again and I migrate back over to shows or Facebook. Sometimes I can make it to 2:30pm though!
2:30pm – Kids wake up. I rejoice in realizing that there are 2 hours left of the work day.
3:00pm – I change 9 more diapers. There will be at least one blowout. I rethink my life choices.
3:30pm – If it’s nice outside, my mom will take the kids out and I will prepare crafts that we will have ambitions for but probably never do!
5:30pm – Work ends. I crash on the couch for 15 minutes.
5:45pm – It’s time to start dinner. I cry inside and start cooking.
5:50pm – Husband comes home. We vent to each other about our days.
6:00pm – We eat and I slowly start spacing out.
7:30pm – I lay in bed, cruise through Facebook and YouTube, and suddenly remember the billions of things I have to do. I accomplish one of those things and feel better.
9:30pm – I crash and burn. I’m down and out for the count. Between this time and wakeup, I will have to get up and pee at least two times, wake up to Husband crowding me, get scratched to death by a cat that doesn’t know personal bubbles, and/or wake up from Husband’s loud a** snoring.
There you have it. My day in a nutshell. Is your day as chaotic as mine? More chaotic? I’d love to hear about your days!
