I know I know I know

I've been a bad blogger, but I'm reading a book that I'm totally captivated by. I've become hooked on the Julie Andrews Memoir, "Home". It is a beautiful book and the sick part is I've read the whole damn thing thus far in an English accent.

I've been working hard lately on creating small routines. My day goes something like this.

5ish Am wake up and make husbands sandwich for his morning snack (he doesn't eat breakfast at work, he doesn't like cold eggs, so he prefers a sammich. (Just added, make husband and I smoothies)

Change Codi and play with him

Make Brandon go potty and lay his pant socks and undies on floor for him to put on when he is done

Prep anything I can for dinner, set my lunch on the counter and make Brandons breakfast

Make my cup of coffee for the day

Argue with Brandon making him eat his breakfast

Nurse Codi while Brandon eats and put him to sleep (I watch one TV show during this period, ONE which is why my Tivo is a little back logged

Put Brandons shirt and sweat shirt on and lay out his shoes for the day.

Dress Codi

Dress myself

Brush teeth, hair and apply deodorant

Finish watching the show I started and cuddle with Brandon

Bag my lunch and anything else I need for work

Attempt to do one chore, such as throw a load of laundry in the washer or do some dishes or unload dishwasher

Pack my car, help Brandon with his shoes and put Codi in his car seat

845 am head to work

Attempt to work, entertain my child, nurse Codi and some days exercise

work until 330-430 depending on how drained I am, or how obnoxious my child is (its that extra hour off work that I cherish working for my family who gives me that little bit of a break)

Come home get Codi unpacked and nursed

Start dinner

Get Brandon changed and on the potty and into some sweats

Change Codi

Make Brandons dinner and feed him and the husband

Transfer the laundry or unload the dishwasher, pack left overs for the next day in little containers (I always double dinner for my husband who thinks left overs make the best lunch)

Lay out husbands fruits, and snacks for his lunch the next day, along with my fruit and snacks

Get Brandon down from table, make my dinner and eat, end up with one or two kids in lap while trying to eat...wonder what hot meal tastes like

Nurse Codi and put him down to play

Refill coffee pot for next day, set aside my lunch stuff for next day in designated fridge spot

Lay out boys clothes for the next day

Give Brandon a bath or get him out of shower from husband and towel, lotion and jammy him

Finally sit down on couch with husband and kids, browse online, read a little and cuddle till Brandon falls asleep

Kiss Brandon good night, nurse Codi and put him in his bassinet.

Tidy kitchen, sweep kitchen floor, do small random things like clean up couch or something

Read some more and pass out


So, as you can see, I either get to blog or read, and right now, this book is totally putting blogging on the back burner. But I promise you guys a great blog soon, in reference to my polls, and whether picking up the phone calling Dominos is "making" dinner.

Make my cup of coffee for the day

Please tell me how you get everything else done without 2 pots of coffee a day. I must be doing something wrong!

Coffee slut: funny you should say that, my cup of coffee is actually about 4 cups tall and i usually have one and a half...i thought one cup of coffee sounded..uh...more normal

I can remember that time when all of my time was for others and hubby would say, what do you mean you don't have any time? Now that I live separate I cherish every moment. And I actually kind of miss doing all those things for my family. Bitter sweet.

Damn. I think I just decided not to have any more kids.

Rachel said...

I love that post. I always feel like my days are very similar. I will one day have to map it out too. you are so good at being you.

I know how you feel...sometimes I hate sitting on the computer blogging when I could be spending time with Dave. He was gone last night hence the 15 blogs I posted haha!

Eva said...

My good friend can't read books written by non-Americans bc it takes her so long to do all the accents in her head!

Cristina Mathers said...

ps: thanks for making me look really lazy!

Eva said...

Okay, so you said I'm organized, but seriously, our kids are mostly eating at daycare so we really only have to feed ourselves breakfast and dinner, and my husband is doing half of everything at home so I'm not having to pack lunches or any of that. I don't know how you handle so much every day!
