The Prompts:

2.) A day in your life...recap.(inspired by Jennifer from Toddler Tirade)

3.) What decision are you having a hard time making?(inspired by Evansmom from Just Sayin')

4.) How will you enjoy your last days of freedom (aka summer)?(inspired by Heather from A Day In The Life)

5.)List your 7 most favorite summer items!(inspired by Summer from Le Musings of Moi

A day in the life of Mel - that's me!

So on an average weekday I don't get my butt into bed until well after 11:00 pm....what can I say, I'm a night owl! Because of this I'm forever waking up later than I should be - pressing the snooze button about 3 or 4 times lol. Eventually the alarm clock says 6:40 (or thereabouts) and I realize I better get moving or we will be extremely late (but somehow I'm never actually late...to my surprise).

I get the boy up and then I jump into the shower. The boy gets himself dressed and meets me in the kitchen where I get him cereal and make coffee. I go back and lay in bed and snuggle with the boyfriend for about 5 minutes and suddenly realize that I'm probably in danger of heading right back into dreamland...so then get up and so does he. He showers we both have a quick cup of coffee while getting ready and are out the door by 7:45.

The boyfriend drops us off at daycare and I take the boy in and make sure he is settled for the day...then I walk up the street to the bus stop where I often meet my friend E...love riding the bus with someone to chat to!

I get to work for 8:29 (see, not late lol)....spend my day typing out letters, documents, setting up meetings, talking to clients, doing bills...oh and of course spending any free moment I have on Blogger and a message board I frequent. Look very forward to our 2, 20 minute coffee breaks and my lunch hour (E and I usually meet up to go for a 45 minute walk).

4:30 - home time - or rather about 4:23 is when I log off so I'm not in danger of missing my bus!

5:00 arrive home - the boy and the boyfriend are always home first...usually they've tidied the house and/or prepped dinner...I come in and take over.

We eat at about 6:00 and after dinner I can finally relax!!!

Relaxing consists of tv watching usually...but on rare evenings when I have a bit of energy we'll go for a walk or perhaps have a fire in the backyard...all weather permitting of course.

8:30 is the boy's bedtime...and we've been trying to get back to reading to him for that quality time...since he's learnt to read I've really gotten away from reading to him (because of course I want him to practice and get better at it) but we're slowly getting back into a routine where the boyfriend or I will read him a chapter of a book we've started (Superfudge by Judy Blume) and then the boy can read his Pokemon book for 1/2 hour before it's lights out...

Like I said I get to bed later than I should...and then it's up to do it all over again!!!

Phew what a day! Seems like a good routine y'all got going though. And the reading time at night sounds wonderful!

What a day! I have a habit of laying back down sometimes too, and it makes me even more tired!
