A day in the life....

Wowzers! Can I say that with it being only Tuesday, I'm already pooped! Yep. I said it. P-o-o-p-e-d!

I'm excited to be linking up to share a day in my normal life.

It's intense-- promise!

Here's what my alarm looks like when I'm waking up:

 Yep, but I promise! There is a reason that I get up at the butt crack of dawn :)  Here is my drive:

Yep, 1 hour and 15 minutes..1 way. I know, I know, you are so totally jealous right?

By the time that I get up (and out of bed) it's about 5:00 am. I get dressed and get ready. By 5:30 I'm usually good to go and wake up my kiddos. They commute with me. They are presch for sure!

We try to be out the door (after getting ready, packing bags, grabbing lunches and breakfasts, etc) by 6:00-6:10 (6:20 by the latest because that tends to be when my patience slips!).

Then we continue our trek with some play:

Yep, Batman was totally cruising on top of the head rest. It was cool :)

After dropping the little K off at day care, Little Man and I pull in at school around 7:30 or so depending on when we left home.

7:45-3:15- I teach my heart out!!
3:15-4:30- I spend this prepping for the day while my little guy plays. This was his artwork from today:

Today I was actually at work until 5:30 because I was planning for our grade level with two others for math plans.

Then we trek back home... some times this is what my back seat looks like:

Poor little guy right? He was passed flat out! If it had been last night, we would have been on our way to soccer and home around 7:30.

Luckily today was no practice! So we were lucky enough to get home by 6:30. (I promise after the BOY calms down, we are able to get home by 4:30-5:30!) After dinner (love my crock pot!), baths, stories, and bed, it was about 7:45.

I've now spent the last 3 hours sitting on the couch cutting, sorting, and planning for tomorrow! I bet you're thinking I'm off to bed now? Not so much, now it's time for dishes, packing lunches, and the what not. I might be in bed by 11.

So... what does your normal day look like?


  1. Wow, that is a long commute! I am your newest follower and can't wait to read more post. Thanks for sharing.


  2. I too wake up at the butt crack of dawn. I commute 85 miles into Dallas, so I feel ya'. Luckily, there is a teacher at my school that lives fairly close to me so we meet at a local wal-mart and take turns driving in.
    p.s. I'm your newest follower!

    take care,
    The 85 Mile Commute

    1. Karen that is so awesome that y'all can commute together! There are two ladies who live nearish to me and we have thrown that idea out now and then but we all have kids... and are just too worried about the what if's of commuting and having a possibly sick kiddo. Ya know?
