It's time for my yearly day in the life post! I started this in 2013 and enjoyed it so much that I decided it would be a tradition, although to be honest I nearly forgot this year. If you want to read past years, click here or here.
I chose Tuesday of this week to be my day to document, but halfway through I hit a roadblock and felt completely overwhelmed with life and everything that has been going on. So please remember that I am real and emotional and totally not perfect and my days are sometimes full of knitting.
The alarm rings at 6:30am but we ignore it for a bit. Dan finally gets up since he has to head to work and I roll over and go back to sleep. Yup, I'm a super supportive wife when I'm tired. I at least kiss him goodbye. I finally roll out of bed after 7:30.
I roll towards the window, since that is my side of the bed, and I am delighted to see that it has snowed overnight. I happily gaze through my plants to the yard and enjoy the slivers of sun peering through the trees. What a nice view, I sure am going to miss it.
I head out to the kitchen where I enjoy my breakfast of toast with peanut butter and homemade applesauce from my mom. So good. I then give Mia some morning snuggles, because we love each other.
After breakfast and snuggles, I hit the shower and get dressed. This always helps me have a more productive day. Or at least I like to think so.
I head out to my living room to try and tackle the mess but change my mind. It's too overwhelming at the moment so I skip it and head to the basement for some blogging.
Once I decide I've spent enough time on the computer, I head back upstairs to clean up the kitchen. I want to get some packing done in there today but need to clean off the counters first.
After cleaning the kitchen I stop for a snack before starting the packing. I have some leftover pancakes but forget to take a picture of them. So you get a photo of an empty plate instead.
Once I have some food in my belly, I move on to packing. There is so much stuff in my kitchen.
I make good progress but after four boxes, realize I am out of boxes. Well so much for getting most of the kitchen packed.
I check the time and get discouraged, I haven't filled enough of the day yet and I'm running out of things to do.
I decide to knit for a while and call my mom.
I talk for 45 minutes before deciding I need to get off and find some lunch. I choose spaghetti and wolf down most of the bowl before remembering I'm supposed to be photographing my day. Oops.
After my lunch I feel sadder and more overwhelmed. I vote for more knitting.
Still feeling sad. Dramatically lie on the bed.
It doesn't help and my dog is even getting bored with me.
I get over myself (sort of) and change the sheets and make my bed. It helps me feel a little better so I move on to organizing the piles all over the livingroom and packing one more box I unearthed in the organizing.
Since I'm still feeling discouraged, I vote for some more knitting before starting supper. It's also at this point that I forget about my photo log of the day and don't take any more pictures. Like I said, the day turned out a little rough emotionally.
I make stir fry for supper, Dan and I watch some Big Bang, and then I head out to Knit Night (a girls night of knitting and food and chatting, it's awesome). When I get back, we watch some more Big Bang and then head to bed by 10:30pm.
There you have it folks, a day in the life of me. Until next year!
