Hello friends! Today I’m joining a group of fabulous West Coast bloggers as we all share our “A Day In The Life” posts. A few weeks ago I shared a post all about my day job as a Children’s Book Publicist so today I decided to share a day in my life at home with my kids and The Hubs.
I treasure weekends. As much as I love my day job, I love my family more. I always think that it’s so sad that we spend so much of our day to day lives with our work family instead of with our real family. When the weekend arrives I treasure it because it means:
1. That I get to spend time with my 3 lovies.
2. That I have time to write and get projects done for my blog.
3. That I can get all of the laundry done so that we have clean clothes to wear the following week.
So what does a typical weekend day look like for me?
Friday nights I stay up until at least midnight so that I can post a link from one of my favorite articles from the week at the SITS Saturday Sharefest. (The link party usually goes live around 12:01 on Saturday morning.) I link up, post a comment and then head to bed (usually to read on my Kobo for a bit before falling asleep.)
Saturday morning my alarm goes off at 7:00 am and I sneak out of bed. Turtle still co-sleeps with us and most nights Bean sneaks into bed during the early morning hours, so I’m usually leaving a warm, cuddly, cozy bed like this behind.
Then the Hubs settles down to read, play a video game or heads down to tinker in the garage… and then it’s playtime for me as I get projects worked on for my blog.
This weekend was especially productive and I got two projects done for my blog. Keep an eye out here as I’ll be posting them in the next few weeks. First I made Sunbutter (aka sunflower seed butter) for a Sunbutter Recipe post.
Tell me… What are your favorite things to do on the weekend? Are your weekends a mix of productivity and relaxation like ours are?
Now let me take a moment to introduce you to a few of my friends. I’d love for you to take a bit of time, explore and get to know them all through their Day In The Life posts.
