I love reading people’s day in the life posts and thought it might be fun to do one seasonally (thanks for the idea Stephanie!). I thought it might be fun to keep track of my Valentine’s Day and share with you.
Here we go….
Yep, 4:30 is when my alarm goes off. I really don’t open my eyes for about 5 minutes. I am a slow riser.
I post my blog and link up.
Then I grab a bottle of water and make myself a cup of coffee.
While my coffee brews, I get Brandon’s lunch packed for him. I like to prep some of this stuff the night before. He was having left overs and some other random stuff :). I know it sounds like it is straight out of the 50’s but this is one way that I show him that I love him and it makes me happy to make his lunch each morning (I even try to do this during summer break).
Around 5:00 I start getting myself ready for the day.
At 5:30ish I have my quiet time. I found that if I woke up and did this right away that I would forget what was being said because my brain takes awhile to warm up in the morning. I also usually have my second cup of coffee during this time. I use this time to catch up on other blogs as well and watch the news. I find that I need about 30-40 minutes of quiet time before the kiddos wake up. I need some warm up time and this is always perfect and I start my day fresh.
Around 6:00 I make the bed
…and I also pack my lunch and snacks as well as the kiddos lunches and snacks.
I also start a load of laundry and put the last load of laundry away.
At 6:30 I make the kiddos their breakfast.
And then I get myself all ready to go.
I get to school and make sure everything is ready to go for the day and write our morning message.
After my workout I fold more laundry, put it away and start another load.
We eat dinner at 5:30 most nights. We also gave the kids their Valentine’s which included the movie “Trolls”. We promised them that we would have movie night on Thursday.
They have both been reading these ocean predator books lately and loving them. We read for 30 minutes each night. I clean out their backpacks during this time and complete their reading logs or any other forms that need returned to school.
Then at 7:00 the kids each take baths or showers and have dessert. Tonight they ate S’mores ice cream. We watched a little bit of “Pirates of the Carribean” before bedtime at 8:00.
Brandon and I ended our night with a little “Fixer Upper”. I know I may get up EARLY but I do go to bed early as well. I try to go to bed between 8 and 9 which is easy most nights as I am wiped, but sometimes I stay up later to watch some TV. It was a great Valentines Day.
Thanks for reading today!
