My life has looked a lot different in the past week. Bobby and I have been spending a ton of time working shifts at Orange Leaf on top of my blog work. Emma Kate goes to daycare 3 days a week, so I try to help at the shop as much as I can on those 3 days. I thought yesterday’s day would be a good example of a day in my life currently!
6:00- I set my alarm for this morning. I have GOT to get a run in. I have been falling off the training plan wagon in the past week since we took over the shop. I don’t have a lot of time at home and when I am home, I am pretty wiped out. However, I was determined today. I always seem to get sidetracked with training plans, so I am a little disappointed in myself.
6:30- Emma Kate is waking up, and Bobby gets her so I can go run a quick 3 miles. I drink some coffee and chat for a minute before heading out.
7:30- I am back home, and pace around the living room under the fan (please tell me I’m not the only one who does this) so I can cool off, then I hop in the shower.
7:50- Time to bring Emma Kate to Daycare. Bobby leaves for the gym, and I throw a few last minute things in EK’s diaper bag and jump in the car. I go to start the car… and it’s not turning on because the key is apparently not in the car (my car doesn’t have a an actual key, just a box that has to be in the car.) I have a slight panic attack because I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE IT IS! I had taken it off my keychain when I ran the other day, but my brain was not functioning as to where it was. I call Bobby frantically, and the baby who is in her car seat, starts screaming. After some thinking and deep breathing, I remembered I had put it in the bag I brought to church that had my clothes to change into for work from the day before when I went straight from church to go open the shop. Crisis averted.
It takes longer than usual to drive to daycare, because now that school has started this time of day includes some heavy traffic (we pass a high school to get to daycare).
8:15- Drop off the baby, who cried when I left for the first time EVER (heartbreaking!) and head back home.
8:30- I grab some yogurt and plop down at the computer. , record payments from blog and social media posts into my spreadsheet, (I am really trying to keep better track of things)
9:15- I look at the time and realize I am running behind! I take the dog out, grab a couple of things we needed at the shop, and jump back in the car and drive to Orange Leaf.
9:30- I unlock the doors, go inside, and realize I had a lot to do and was rushing around. I managed to spill water all over the floor, and then thankfully, Bobby arrived from the gym to help me, Hooray! We clean and get toppings and machines ready for the day.
11:30- The shop opens and a girl we hired comes in to train for a few hours. I do some computer work, mix some yogurt, cut fruit, get toppings filled, etc.
12:50- I had a dentist appointment at 1:00 for a filling that cracked, so I packed up some cups of frozen yogurt, drove a quarter mile to the dentist, presented them with yogurt, and then spent an hour in the chair (ug).
2:00- I drive back to the shop and work until 5:00. The internet goes out so we had to figure out how to get the system offline so we could still take credit cards. Always something, right?
5:15- I throw some more small cups of yogurt into a cooler and get back in the car and drive to Emma Kate’s daycare. They were excited to have free froyo, and the baby was happy to see mama.
5:30- We drive home, and it looks like it’s going to storm, which would be awesome because we haven’t gotten more than five minutes of rain since the 4th of July.
5:45- We get home, and I feed Emma Kate her dinner, take the dog out, and throw something in the oven for me and for Bobby when he gets home after 10:00.
6:00- I put EK in her pj’s and we play on the floor for a bit and watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (her favorite). It is super dark, but no rain.
6:20- Emma Kate took a very short early afternoon nap so I knew she was crashing. I gave her a bottle before putting her in bed.
6:30- Bedtime for baby girl. She has been going down between 6:30 and 6:45 lately and sleeping until 6:00-6:30. I put her down and poor girl fell right to sleep after saying prayers.
6:40- I put a load of laundry on and started writing this post.
6:50- I took some pictures with my good camera for an upcoming sponsored post.
6:55- Answered a few emails, did some picking up around the kitchen
7:15- Dinner is ready! I eat, and then take a shower.
7:45- Back on the computer, I set up some social media posts, text a couple of employees about scheduling for this week, and read a couple of blogs.
8:00- My brain hurts, so I head upstairs to watch TV, clean up my inbox, and do a few random online tasks that I have been neglecting. Still. no. rain.
10:00 Bobby arrives home from closing the store. He eats dinner and we chat about the day and the store. Tomorrow will be the first day we aren’t covering every single shift, hooray! We will both still be at the shop for a few hours but not 9:30 am –10:00 pm, so I’ll take it!
10:45- We are both exhausted, so it’s time for bed!
QOTD: Has your day changed now that school has started (for some?)
