A Day in the Life
Trish hosted “A Day in the Life” event last year and it was so much fun to see how everyone spends their non-reading time so I’m glad to see she’s hosting it again. I’m a day late to the party and I’m probably not dressed properly but I’m here just the same. Since my child is grown and I don’t have a regular job, I really don’t have a typical day anymore but I did try to pick one that was more normal than most – last Wednesday, March 16.
7:00AM – The alarm goes off, I start a load of laundry, and rouse Carl out of bed so we can go on our three mile walk – we do this six days a week.
8:00AM – I put clothes in the dryer and spend some time on the computer checking email and social media and reading blogs.
8:45AM – It’s time to shower and tackle chores like making the bed, folding laundry, vacuuming – you get the picture.
11:00AM – I head to the store to help straighten shelves and get a delivery from the night before out.
1:15PM – I head out to run a few errands.
2:00PM – It’s time for a haircut. It feels good to sit and have someone fix my hair.
2:45PM – I grab a bite to eat and take it back to the store and then work on deliveries that came in while I was gone.
4:00PM – Carl and I decide to visit a local brewery for a beer.
5:15PM – I call my mom. She’s 89 and lives by herself so I like to check on her daily.
6:30PM – I walk down to a neighbor’s to visit with a few friends in the neighborhood.
8:00PM – I finally have time to read for a while but do keep check on basketball games going on – it is March Madness after all!
10:00PM – I check computer one more time and get ready for bed.
10:30PM – Lights out!
As you can see, my day was full but not particularly exciting. I looked back at my post from last year and noticed the two days were pretty similar. Do you have a typical day?
