i feel like i haven’t really done a “recap of yesterday” kind of post in a long time. i used to post that way most of the time, but lately i’ve had so many other kinds of posts to write: wedding recaps, recaps of my friend’s weddings, reviews, etc. i want to get back to normal!
so, what is normal now that i’m back in the lab and brad’s working? let me tell you about yesterday…
5:15am: alarm goes off – no snoozes in september (15 days in and i’m still going strong!!!) – take temperature, get up, shower, get dressed
5:45am: feed capone and let him outside to do his business
6:00am: pack up work bag with lunch, water bottle, coffee, etc. and depart apartment
6:30am: ride bus
7:00am: arrive at work, settle in: check email, check a couple blogs, blog if i didn’t do it the night before…
sometime between 8 and 9am: get hungry & eat breakfast!
i actually changed up my breakfast yesterday! brown rice crisps with almond milk did the trick!
9am-1pm: work work work. some days i have seminars at 11 or noon, but yesterday i just worked away at my desk. i’m giving a presentation to a garden club next weekend and at a huge work conference in 2.5 weeks, so those have been keeping me busy.
1pm: eat lunch
this hodge-podge lunch was awesome!! the grapes especially did it for me. i love grapes! why haven’t i bought any all summer until now??
1:30-3:30ish: work work work…
3:30-6pm: yesterday we had our department picnic to welcome new graduate students and catch up after everyone’s busy summers. it was nice to see everyone! i helped set up at 3:30 and then snuck out at 6 to catch one of the last “rush hour” buses! *usually i’m home around this time and can squeeze in workouts, walks for capone, meal prep, and cleaning during this time!
6ish: ride bus and drive home
7ish: arrive home, take capone out (don’t worry, brad comes home at lunch to play with him and take him out), start dinner, clean up apartment, cuddle with the puppy
wait for brad to get home…
7:30-8pm: brad gets home! eat dinner right away. usually while watching tv – yes, we’re bad. that will change once we have kids! no tv during dinner was a rule when i was little and i think it was a good one! but i digress….
8-10pm: blog, read blogs, pack lunch/breakfast for next day, play with capone, do work if i didn’t get everything done in lab…
10pm: bed! yes. i am a grandma and i am 100% ok with it! honestly, i’m usually in bed and reading by 9:30 and i like it that way.
what’s your schedule like?
are you an early to bed, early to rise kind of lady like me?
what are your work hours like?
i’m lucky that my work schedule is so flexible! i choose to go in early so i can leave on the early side. but, if i have to go in a little later than usual for some reason, it’s no problem and i just stay a little later. it all works out!
