I follow a blog called Adventuroo, and every year Melissa does a Week In The Life series. I thought that I would join in this year and document a week in my life. Sounds fun, right? Here we go!
8:03 AM - Started my morning routine and then got into the shower. Once I was done in the shower, I went and got Annelise out of bed.
8:33 AM - She's entered into this phase where it's a fight to get her to sit in her high chair. Once she's in there, she's fine, but getting her there can be a struggle sometimes. I started the dishwasher since I forgot to do that last night. I finally wrangled Annelise into her high chair and got her breakfast. Today was blueberry yogurt and some pineapple.
9:02 AM - Annelise has finally finished eating and I have cleaned up the kitchen. We go back to the bedrooms to start getting dressed. I turned Pandora on the computer. Annelise loves dancing to the music and usually asks for it anytime she's back in the office. I started to get dressed and do my hair and makeup. I'm pretty sure I had to stop over a dozen times to tell Annelise to get out of something that she shouldn't be in. I finally finished getting ready at about 9:45 and then moved on to changing Annelise's diaper and getting her dressed. It's usually a fight to do this, but today wasn't too awful. I think the promise of shopping might have helped that.
10:04 AM - Leave the house to run our errands. First stop was my doctor's office to drop off some paperwork. I ran into a friend of mine, and her daughter, while I was there. We chatted for a few minutes and then I was on my way. Then, we went to Target.
11:25 AM - We left Target and drove over to Olive Garden to have lunch. We were seated right away. Rachel and I both ordered soup, salad, and breadsticks. I had the chicken and gnocchi soup, and Rachel had the zoupa toscana.
1:06 PM - I took Annelise into her room to change her diaper and put her down for a nap. After that, I came into the office to do some work.
1:25 PM - I had to go into Annelise's room and scooch her crib a little because she had turned on the light switch.
1:41 PM - Finally asleep. I checked Facebook and my email.
1:52 PM - Started filing all of the paperwork. I didn't take me long, it's just tedious. I really need to clean out the folders, but that will wait until after the first of the year.
2:14 PM - I'm over working in my office, and feeling a little sleepy, and cold, so I went out to the living room to watch some tv and snuggle under the blanket. I watched the end of an episode of Home Improvement. Then, I switched to Let's Make A Deal at about 2:30. No joke, I got up at least a half a dozen times to either let the dog in or out or let a cat in or out of the bedroom since Drew sleeps with the door closed. So, a nap wasn't happening. I watched The Ellen Degeneres Show at 3:00. Drew got up around 3:15 and made himself some lunch. He then went and got showered and ready for work. He came back into the living room at about 4:15. After he put his shoes on, he went into the dining room to fill out the new patient paperwork for a new PCP that we're going to be going to.
4:37 PM - I woke Annelise up from her nap. She's worked herself into a new schedule where she goes to bed super late at night, sleeps in later in the mornings, therefore naps much later in the day than she used to. I'm still trying to decide if I like it. We just hang around the kitchen while Drew gets ready and then leaves for work.
5:17 PM - I made a hodgepodge dinner for Annelise until I figured out what our actual dinner was going to be.
7:14 PM - I thought I smelled something a little suspicious, so I took Annelise back to her room to change her diaper. Turns out it was a false alarm, but I still changed her anyway. I decided to just leave her jeans off. We came back out to the living room and started playing on the couch. I kept tickling her and she kept trying to climb onto the back of the couch cushions and cracking up when I wouldn't let her. We had a blast. Nothing beats the sound of her giggles. I love making her giggle.
8:56 PM - I turned the tv and told Annelise it's time to go night-night. She got up and walked back to her room to get changed. She insisted on brushing her teeth first, so I let her do that. After she brushed her teeth, I changed her diaper and put her pajamas on. She looked through a book while I was doing that. I gave her a paci and put her in her crib.
9:07 PM - I came into the office and got on the computer. I checked Facebook and chatted with a friend about a wedding that I'm second shooting on Saturday. I started to import all of today's pictures for this post and then started typing it up.
10:25 PM - Annelise has finally quieted down and fallen asleep.
10:35 PM - I stopped working on this post for the evening and went out to the living room to watch some tv before heading to bed. I decided I was hungry again and tater tots really sounded good. So, I put some in the toaster oven for Rachel and myself. Then, I had to wait 25 minutes for them to cook. It was already past my bedtime and I wasn't helping things. The tater tots finally finished and I scarfed them down and then went and got ready for bed.
11:46 PM - Finally crawled into bed. I scrolled through my phone a little bit while watching some Full House. I finally turned everything off at 12:12 AM and fell asleep pretty quickly.
