I had a comment on my law firm post from Jen that she would like to see a post on my day-to-day doings. So, I thought I would provide a snapshot as to what a day in my life is actually like. :-)
7:00 a.m. -- Wake up, E is still sleeping. Spend time with S while he gets ready to leave for school.
8:00 a.m. -- E wakes up, gets a diaper change, nurses, and we play for awhile while I drink my coffee. I also move a load of laundry I washed last night from the washer to the dryer.
9:15 a.m. -- E lays down for her morning nap. I draft a letter to the client I met last week and return his phone call from yesterday afternoon.
9:45 a.m. -- I take the trash out to the curb and throw dinner in the crock pot.
10:00 a.m. -- E wakes up from her morning nap waaaay too early, as evidenced by her extreme grouchiness. Diaper change. More coffee. Breakfast. I put E on the floor to play and sit by her with my laptop. Alternate
between playing with E, looking up ideas for her birthday party on Pintrest, keeping E from
electrocuting/strangling herself with my laptop charger cord, and
12:00 p.m. -- E nurses again and I lay her down for "morning" nap attempt #2.
12:07 p.m. -- Success!
12:08 p.m. -- I kick back with "50 Shades of Grey". [S bought it for me to help with my "rehab". ;-)]
1:00 p.m. -- S comes home for lunch, and we eat together and hang out before he has to go back to school.
1:45 p.m. -- E wakes up in a much better mood. Diaper change. She nurses again, eats some puffs, and we play some more.
3:30 p.m. -- Phone call from my bank regarding a networking opportunity for my new law firm. Schedule a meeting with them for next Wednesday.
3:40 p.m. -- Decide I'm motivated enough to continue my project I started yesterday - organizing my closet and getting rid of stuff I can't/don't wear anymore. E plays on the bed with hangers while I sort through all of my junk.
4:15 p.m. -- E nurses and lays down for her afternoon nap. I continue organizing and field a phone call from a friend.
5:00 p.m. -- E poops herself awake from her nap. Diaper change. She then "helps" while I continue organizing.
5:45 p.m. -- S gets home, and the three of us eat dinner together. E eats enough ham and peas to feed a small country. (We recently discovered she LOVES ham!) Dinner is followed by clean-up, of the dishes and the baby. E plays until bedtime.
7:30 p.m. -- E gets a diaper change, nurses for the last time, then lays down for bed with minimal fussing (hallelujah!). S and I each have a beer while he plays video games and I prepare for my client meeting tomorrow morning.
Whew! Well, that about sums up a typical day for me. Of course, some days are busier than others, and some days E and I just play all day, but I hope that gives you a better idea of my day-to-day life. :-)
