~Yesterday was Part 1, but in case you missed it…this is from way back on March 13th, 2017~
12:30 – Now that I’m a little hungrier, I grab my lunch, computer, and study materials and head to the room I’ve booked for a productive lunch hour. Unfortunately, there’s someone in there. (This is one of my biggest pet peeves, and I get unreasonably furious every time it happens). I don’t want to kick the woman out of the room because she’s on the phone, so I find another open room. I end up reading advice columns all lunch hour instead of studying (oops!)
1:30 PM – I head back to my desk to find that I’ve been invited to a 3PM meeting and have an email requesting I do some research to figure out why some numbers are looking different than we expected. Before I get started on this request, I want to finish what I was working on in the morning, but I get sidetracked when my coworker who sent the request starts talking to me about it.
By 2:15 PM I finally escape the work talk and decide it’s time for some coffee. In the kitchen I run into a coworker I haven’t seen for a while and we chat a bit. Then on the way back to my desk, I stop and talk to my manager about time I’m hoping to take off the next week.
2:45 PM – After over an hour of distractions, I am able to get back to what I was working on in the morning. I decide not to go to the 3 PM meeting, and instead finish up what I’m working on and then begin the analysis I was emailed about. Unfortunately, I barely get started on that when my manager comes over with a more pressing request. I switch over and review a file he created so he can send it out today.
Suddenly, it’s 4:00 PM and I wrap up my review and send one last email before shutting down my computer and heading out for the day. I listen to the radio on my way to pick up Mr. Baby from daycare. Traffic is wonderfully calm again (Mondays for the win!), so it’s a quick trip.
I arrive at daycare at 4:35 PM. When Mr. Baby sees me and gets all excited at pick up, it’s one of the best parts of the day.
5:00 PM – Mr. Baby and I arrive home. Jeff meets us at the door to help bring everything in the house. A lot of days MB falls asleep on the ride home, but he’s awake today, so we play on the floor while Jeff makes dinner “for the grown-ups”.
By 5:30 PM we shit down to to eat (sausages and potatoes) while MB plays in his saucer (this is not always guaranteed), and once we finish it’s his dinner time. He gets a bottle and 4 tablespoons of food (today it’s oatmeal with banana and yogurt). Once he’s done eating we head upstairs to get him ready for bed. Tonight is not bath night, so it’s a quick change into a night diaper and some PJs, and then we read a bit.
Mr. Baby falls asleep early (the time change?) at 6:45 PM, and I head downstairs to relax a bit. I watch some TV and play around on my phone until 7:30, at which point I manage to transfer my Netflix watching from the TV to my tablet for a 3.5 mile run on the treadmill. I’m not sure I would have run if I couldn’t watch TV while doing so…actually, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have.
At 8:30 PM, I hit the showers, then eat some dessert while (you guessed it) watching a little more TV before heading up to bed.
At 9:20 PM I get ready for bed and finally….sleep!
Phew! Writing it all down made my day seem really full! I loved keeping track of myself and then writing it all out. And it was super interesting reading it over almost a year later. Keep an eye out for “Tuesday in the Life” one of these days. And please consider doing a day in the life post yourself because I LOVE reading them.
