A Day in the Life of Me

Since Candy invited her readers to participate in her Internet Reality project, or a day in the life of me, I decided to give it a try. I'm typically more of a routine person rather than a rigid schedule. Fridays are generally the day I do an Emergency Quick clean, which isn't so quick with the littles around. My husband leaves for work at 7:30, and since my oldest was going to school and had to be ready by then too, we just keep on getting up early out of habit, even though it's summer now.

Here I am, dressed for the day. The skirt I'm wearing I made a couple of years ago- just two panels with an elastic waist.

Making breakfast...whole wheat blueberry waffles today. It is 6:30 am by the way-- my children are early risers.

Unloading the dishwasher... I am so thankful I have one :)

This is the kids' play area BEFORE they are up- nice and tidy.

Good morning Sunshine! Sarah is wearing a nightgown I made for my second daughter when she was her age.

Up and at'em bright an early! Notice the room...sometimes they quietly destroy it before I realize it. Nice bed hair :) Alexa has had a hard time giving up her pacifier (yes she is 3.5) so she found this plastic doll one as a replacement.

Time to eat! They are very excited about the waffles.

Helping mama clean up.

Here's my other 'helper', thanks Fergus. Yes I do wash the highchair tray after the dog cleans it for me.
Starting up the washer...Leiah is helping.

Making the bed and tidying the room.

Time for the quick cleaning....mop, vacuum, dust, wiping mirrors and surfaces...

Gleaming white sinks...

Today we go to the goat farm to pick up our raw goat milk. It's in the next town and takes about 30 minutes to drive there. The kids love going- they get to see the goats, chickens, horses, huge turkeys, ducks and dogs.

We're back home and ready for lunch. Today it's leftover veggie soup and sandwiches, with goat milk of course :)
Time to reboot the laundry, with my right hand lady again. Thanks Leiah!
Relaxing before naptime, watching some Little Bear. I am sitting in the recliner with Leiah.
Well, the kiddies are taking naps. I decided to boil some potatoes for potato salad later. I planned to finish cleaning the bathrooms and work on the dress I'm sewing, but since I only got a few hours of sleep the night before, I took a nap too.

Kids are up, time to play!

Matt made it home. It's been a long week...
The girls set the table and are ready to EAT!
Hot dogs, tater salad, and veggies with dip.
Then while I cleaned up the kitchen, Daddy played the letter game with the girls. They take turns repeating the letter on the card, and when they say it or attempt to, they get the card. Leiah, our 4 year old, is very speech delayed, so this is a very helpful exercise for her.
We got a movie rental gift card, so we decided to go rent some. Here is what the backseat in our Tahoe looks like.
On our way back home, we saw these beautiful clouds.

Back home, watching the movie, eating popcorn and milkshakes. This is a BIG treat, our girls normally go to bed by 8pm or earlier. Sarah was too tired so she went to bed.

And now it's way past bedtime. Good night girls. Matt and I decided to just go to bed too, so that's all the pictures for this day.

I found your post through candy and wanted to say hi......I enjoyed your day. What fun, and the dog even helps too.....we have a black lab (on his last legs...15 years old) he likes to help clean up too. thank you for sharing your day, oh and I love the skirt you sewed. Did you use a specific pattern? I like the style and would like to make one for myself.
Blessings Lori

Thanks everyone!

Lori- the skirt was from a pattern, by New Look, the patterns at Wal-Mart that you can turn. (does that make sense?) It has several skirt variations, along with pants and shirts. It's sort of old.

Hi Trixie- I love my white canister set and dishes, all from Wally World!

Amanda- HAHAHA!!! Thanks so much for recalling up that old nickname. You better get your blog up and running so I can comment on it. We love you too!
