My Daily Routine

For weeks I thought it was time to share how my usually very boring day looks like. Most of us have a job or children or both. Some of us have neither and still manage to have a busy schedule ahead of them. For me it is a mixture of all three. And because I think it's important to note that everyone's life is different, I think it's equally important to see it in writing to make it believable, to make it real. 
I don't have a set routine. Most days are very similar yet can differ drastically depending on plans, events, and what not. You know, life happens. :) 

Here's what I was up to today:
  • 4 am - wake up call by Lilee and Luna. Both decided it was time to snuggle with me. No idea why they choose to do this at that hour. It's a trend they have recently started. Working on getting this stopped or postponed to maybe 6?
  • 5.20 am - my man came home from work. I woke up once more. Tried to go back to sleep for an extra ten minutes. Failed of course.
  • 5.30 am - alarm went off. I hit the snooze button only to turn it off two minutes later.
  • 5.30 am - 5.45am - shower, dress, and prep time
  • 5.50 am - brew coffee and got my cereal bowl and fruit ready. Turned on the news.
  • 6 am - feeding time. 
  • 6.30 am - 6.45 am - left for school, although I think we left around 6.55 am. Oops.
  • 7.30 - 8 am - arrived at school, found parking, and relaxed. It always depends on traffic when we arrive. Today it took us over an hour. 
  •  until 8.30 am - relaxed in the car by checking emails, social media and the news once again.
  • 8.30 am - 1.30pm - stayed on campus, read, took notes, waited, and talked.
  • 1.30 pm - met up with my favorite person, drove home.
  • 2.15 pm - got some gas, stopped by Sprouts, went home and made late lunch
  • 3 pm - my man went to bed. Literally. I turned on the news, turned on my computer, worked.
  • 5.15 pm - feeding time. The fur children were hungry.
  • 5.30 pm - research, and small work stuff online until my man wakes up
  • 6 pm - prepped dinner and play time with the fur babies
  • 6.30 pm - clean, work, clean, work, clean again?!

    Planned ahead as of right now...
  • 8 pm - Dinner time, finallllllly!
  • 8.30 - 10.30pm - TV time with Christmas lights on
  • Shortly after 10.30pm - bed time. Good night!
  • No school tomorrow...just a wake up call at 4 am I am sure of it

This is more or less a typical day for me. I work from home (nothing major but at least it's something as for now) and it keeps me distracted. Also, yes my man has awkward work hours. They will be over by tomorrow!!! Having him come home so early in the morning and then having to go to school is draining. I am glad I drive him to university. No one wants a sleepy guy behind the wheel. I am exhausted. My daily routine is boring I know...but it could also be worse.

If you were wondering what's for dinner?
Tonight it's simple...white rice, mixed fall/winter veggies {hello brussels' sprouts and chestnuts}, and salmon with a curry crust. Cannot wait to eat it. Most of it is prepped already, all I have to do work on is the salmon which won't be too hard. This also reminds me to get back into my recipe posting. I have neglected it for many reasons, and now I am ready to get back into trying yummy recipes and sharing my favorites with you. Stay tuned.

I can't believe your cats wake you so early! We have to close our doors at night or ours would run around the bed in the middle of the night. They are definitely nocturnal. Haha!

Sounds exhausting. I'm glad that your mans schedule is FINALLY changing!! That's fab news. Poor guy is a trooper but must be half zombie all the time.
Your dinner sounded amazing. Mmmmm!
Have a lovely weekend love xoxo
