A day in the hectic life

5:15 am:  *blink*  Nope, not getting up.

6:45 am:  Okay Pixie, I’ll get up and give you your crack….  Then I need something of my own:

7:05 am:  Not a bad morning for biking.  I am so ready for a bagel!

7:35 am:  Breakfast time – yum! Too bad John missed out.

7:50:  Seriously – why must 2 people sitting across from each other talk so loud? I really do not want to hear this conversation.

8:30 am:  Stopping for a moment of zen here.  Need to keep this picture in mind for a busy, busy day.

8:55 am:  Hmmmm….. shower first or walk to post office to mail packages?  Better walk.  Only want to take 1 shower today.

9:15 am:  Can I work from the post office today?  It is so cool here.

9:25 am:  Multitasking of walking home and talking to my mom on the phone. Yay for productivity!

9:30 am:  Shower time!  The only pores on my body that aren’t sweating profusely are under my arms.  Thank you Secret Clinical Strength.

10:00 am:  Job #1 check.  Slow – good.  Can get caught up on business orders:

10:50 am:  Hungry?  Yes.  Need snack:

11:20 am:  Quick Tour check.   Guess Cavendish is back!  He was crying over his win.  I feel kind of bad about the schadenfreude I was feeling yesterday that he got beat.

11:55 am:  Hungry again.  Lunch time!  Thank goodness for precooked food.

12:30 pm:  More order packing.  Feeling overwhelmed…. When is John getting back??  I can do 2 jobs, but not 3.

1:00 pm:  Job #1 check in.  No work to do.  Quick brew some espresso to cool down for later!

1:05 pm:  Job #2 check in.  Work to do.  Typie, typie!

2:00 pm:  Job #2 finished for day.  Check job #1 – work to do!  Whew! I need this life:

3:00 pm:  Need iced latte – stat!

3:10 pm:  Yay! Coffee is nectar of the gods.

4:10 pm:  Stepped outside to check mail.  Hit with wall of humidity.  Funny how amazingly cool our downstairs feels after coming back inside when the thermostat reads 80s degrees (that’s with window AC running).

4:15 pm:  I am so glad this isn’t *my* doctor. 🙄

4:36 pm:  Seriously?  Hungry?  Must wait until dinner time.  It’s not that long.

5:15 pm:  Dinner time!  Yippee!  Need something light and refreshing:

5:45 pm:  I don’t wanna go back to work!  I think I will upload the pictures I have taken so far today instead.

6:00 pm:  Okay, really have to get back to work.

7:00 pm:  Worst dictator ever. Ugh.

7:15 pm:  Want some kind of snack. Forgot about the Skinny Cows in the freezer. Yay!

7:30 pm:  Do I have it in me to keep working?  When is John getting home??

7:45 pm:  Watering garden.  It needs it!  Lots of things blooming now.

8:10 pm:  Working a little more after that break.

8:26 pm:  Done working for the day.  That was a looooooong day.  And John just pulled into the driveway.  Time to post!  😀

    Loved this post! Loved the timeline format, too. Sorry it was such a hectic day for you, but glad John got back from his trip and you “only” have to do your two jobs again. 🙂

    (That picture of Pixie did it: I just changed my mind about answer #2 on my “Life is Good Award” post. To heck with Chrissie on Ironman Kona day, day as a cat in a good home wins, hands-down.)

    Although busy it kept you out of trouble 🙂 I was like Pixie most of the day…..hey I’m injured! Ok that’s just a convenient excuse 🙂

    I can’t function in this humidity. It sucks the energy right out of me.

    WOW! You’re a busy bee. Sounds like you need a little vacation.

    Welcome Home John.

      Sort of Friday and Saturday. I need to make up a little time this Friday. Hopefully if/when I transition to the new company it will be M-F!

    Pretty moving, all those interviews of Cavendish, just bawling – we’d been hearing what a jerk he was and then here was this big kid, just crying his eyes out. Made me want to give him a big hug. I am rooting for Fabian Cancellara – just love him!

    Love this post! Format is fun! Pixie’s picture is THE BEST – and that’s saying a lot, cuz the food looks yummy. 🙂 Hmmm… two posts on two different blogs within 10 minutes – both mentioning Skinny Cow. Guess I need to get to the store? LOL

    HUGS from Orlando!
