I enjoyed Dusty's A Week in my Life so much that I thought I should try it myself! I've done my average day, but my days are all so random that there really isn't an average day. So here's the average week - which really isn't that average! Read more about a week in my life here!
5:39am - Jarrod's alarm goes off VERY loud...again! He gets up, showers, etc.
7:07am - Jarrod says goodbye. He's off to work/church. Wesley and I will join him in a few hours. It's time for me to get up! I pump and catch up on blogs before ever getting out of bed.
7:30am - 5 ounces of milk pumped and I hop in shower.
7:41am - It's amazing to shower on Sunday without worrying about Wesley. He's still quiet in his room, but I'm sure he's awake. Because he's quiet, I decide I have time to comb hair and sort laundry.
- I change Wesley's diaper and it's time for him to nurse. Sometimes I bring him back to bed with me but this morning I decide to nurse him in the rocker in his room.
8:04am - Breakfast time! I get Wesley settled and heat up edamame, spinach, and apple sauce. Thankfully, I had the sense to have it in the fridge ready to go so I don't need to defrost anything. Lunch is also packed so I grab that while I'm in there.
8:25am - Breakfast and cleanup done. Time to get ready!
8:33am - Thanks to a few minutes before Wesley woke up, mama's ready. I'd hoped to be out the door by 8:30am...that's not happening.
Wesley has a huge poop while I'm getting ready, so getting him dressed takes some extra time.
8:44am - On our way to church. I try to arrive early to greet visitors, but I'm a little bit late today.
8:45am - Realize I'm out of gas. Already running late what's a little later?
8:57am - Struggle to get Wesley out of the car and get all of our stuff to the church. It's very windy! Arrive early. Thankfully a friend grabs Wesley because I'm asked several questions before I've even entered the church. I run around for a few minutes before settling in for worship.
10:19am - After church and visiting with folks, Wesley and I run errands. My list includes jeans, a flea collar, butter, and searching for cowboy hats for my boys.
11:15am - Jeans purchased at Kohl's and we're headed to Target! Thankfully it's in the same shopping center as our lunch location. I park at the restaurant change and feed Wes.
12:09am - I found everything I need at Target and walk back to the restaurant. Wesley is settled and we wait for our friends to arrive. Wesley does a great job and is mesmerized by the TVs. There is a noon Cowboys game so we sit in a restaurant with about 700 TVs. Wesley still manages to pound down Spinach, bananas, sweet potatoes, and more edamame.
1:55pm - Wesley is asleep and Jarrod is resting so mama goes for a walk!
2:30pm - Jarrod has to get back to work soon so I just get 2.5 miles in. I talk with Jarrod about church stuff, try on my new jeans (he approves!), and write a few e-mails.
3:07pm - Wes is awake! Jarrod needs to leave, so we both say goodbye. Wesley gets a diaper change and nurses.
3:30pm - I move Wesley's pack 'n play into the kitchen and get started on dinner. We're having brown rice and chicken casserole. I decide I'm also going to start on stew for later in the week.
4pm - I decide take a break from dinner to watch TV, blog, and play with Wesley. Welsey's not interested in playing by himself and needs my undivided attention...
By 4:15pm I am back up was getting stew ready and making biscuits - wearing Wesley in the Moby because he refuses to be put down.
5pm - Decide to go for a walk.
5:01pm - Realize that the stroller is in Jarrod's car at the church. Back inside.
5:30pm - Dinner in the oven. Wes in the bath.
6:05pm - Start dinner for Wesley. I give him puffs because he's getting fussy.
6:15pm - I finally sit down and feed Wesley. He is a bottomless pit! Perhaps this is why he was so fussy...
6:30pm - Jarrod arrives home and we sit to eat. Wesley is mostly done so we give him some applesauce and oatmeal. Then he eats more - some of our dinner. It's the first time we've given him table food. He seems to like it!
6:50pm - Diaper change for Wesley. It's time to go to sleep. Normally he gets a bath now, but on Sundays I do it before Jarrod gets home to save time.
6:55pm - We read Wesley a story and I feed him. We pray and put him to bed.
7:05pm - Wesley goes right to sleep. I edit photos while we wait for Once Upon a Time. We like to start our shows 15 minutes into it so we can skip commercials. I grab a small glass of wine.
After Once Upon a Time (not that impressed with this week's episode. They keep adding in new characters and I'm not sure I like the characters they already have!) it's time for Lie to Me and ice cream! We've been watching Lie to Me on netflix and LOVE it.
9:30pm - Check on Wes, switch a load of laundry, run the dishwasher and get ready for bed. Somehow I've managed to do 4 loads of laundry today without ever documenting it...
Get ready for bed! My evening routine includes getting cleaned up, pumping, and reading the bible readings for the day. Jarrod and I are reading the Bible in a year using YouVersion on our phones.
10:30pm - I finally turn out the light.
