My typical day....

  A fellow blogger...50s Housewife, is hosting a linky on her blog titled, "A Housewife's Life-August."

She asked us to share a day of our life.  I thought that could be fun, so here goes.  My day started at 5:30am.  I don't know why I'm waking up almost the exact same time every morning so early lately, but I'm just going with it.  I came downstairs to fix a cup of coffee.  Poured too much creamer in it, but too tired to care.

I went back upstairs into the office and got on the computer.  I caught up on all my emails, and read some blogs.  It was so quite, until.....dogs started barking at 6:15 wanting to go out.  I let the dogs out, then went ahead and got showered and dressed.

  Then I made the bed, and emptied the dishwasher.  DD woke up, and I told her to get dressed while I got bagels ready, per her request. After breakfast, it was up into the playroom/classroom to start school.  Between back and forth teaching, while she does her independent work, I vacuumed family room, cleaned up coffee cups, and breakfast dishes,  put clean comforter back on bed that I washed yesterday, emptied all the garbage cans, and got the big garbage can ready to take to the street, completed 2 loads of laundry (washed, dried, put away, and wrinkle removal).  Yes, I said wrinkle removal...you'll have to see what I mean by that on my next post. ;)  Then lunch, clean the kitchen from lunch, let the dogs out again, and short break before we went back to finish up school.

  Ok, once school is done, it's free time which usually means catching up with DH and hearing about how his day went, then getting on the computer again checking emails, and/or working on a post for my blog.  Today I added some Girls Summer 3T clothes on ebay to sell. :) DD likes to watch some TV, read a book she picked out from the library, or play a video game.

  Shortly after that, it's time to figure out what to fix for dinner. I've really got to look more into getting a menu plan together.  Today, I did remember to set out a chicken to bake in the oven tonight.  I love getting dinner ready to eat by 5:30-6:00, so that by the time we eat, and clean the kitchen it's still pretty early.

  Then dogs go out one last time, DD and I usually go up and snuggle up for a movie before bed.  Once DD is tucked in DH and I usually watch something together before bed.  Then we start it all again the next day.

  I just love being a stay at home mom!  I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.  It's the most fulfilling job I've ever had.

  Well, don't forget to go over to 50s Housewife to share your day!

Thanks for stopping by!

I loved reading about your day! I need to get back to menu planning too. Maybe I'll get back to it when school starts and we get a routine going again. :)

Thanks for participating in A Housewife's Life!

It's amazing how much you can accomplish in an average day!

Peaceful? Thanks for the fresh perspective! Some days I feel like I'm just spinning my wheels. Once I get done with all the "just have to do that today", I feel too wiped out to do the things that have been neglected. When I look back on my post I guess it does sound like a nice peaceful day, and not the "contented business" I felt while writing it.
