Good morning! It’s stormy here. We are under a tornado watch, and it’s supposed to rain aalll day. I decided to hit the treadmill for a quick speed session, and so glad I did because it started raining and thundering/lightning. Yikes! I could have been outside!
Have you missed anything the past few days? My Friday Favorite’s post was about GU, Saturday, Bobby and I ran a 5k race which ended up being a trail run, and we had no idea… Sunday I wrote a post about trail running, and realized I know nothing about it! Yesterday, my mom and I met up with Bobby at our new house, it’s almost complete!
So now that we are all caught up, I thought I would take some time to describe what a day looks like for me. As most of you know, I am currently working from home, so things sometimes look a little different than a normal house! Not to mention, I am currently living with my parents, so things are REALLY crazy right now!
7:15ish: Wake up, eat breakfast/chat with my mom/watch the Today show, laugh at the annoying people on the Today show.
8:00-12:00: Work on quotes for clients, call Disney, email clients, work on articles, etc. I usually eat lunch while I work. I also take short little breaks for twitter, to blog, etc. (sometimes longer than others…sshhh)
12:00-1:00 Go for a run or cross train, sometimes walk with my mom or mom and dad, dogs, etc. Whatever it is I just try to get out and move/sweat!
1:00-3:00 work on and off, depending on how much I have to do. I also take breaks during this time to do things like laundry, help my mom with dishes, shower, crosstitch…haha, just seeing if you are paying attention!
3:00-5:00 This is my computer playtime. I catch up on blogs, chat on twitter, etc. Sometimes I work here too, depending on what is going on, and who needs what. My phone/email is attached to my hip at all times.
5:00 Dinner time (we eat early, like old people…because I live with old people. JUST KIDDING mom and dad!)
6:00-9:00: Hodgepodge of hanging out with family, surfing blogs, vegging out.
9:00: Go upstairs and get ready for bed, read my Bible, and call Bobby to chat.
10:00-10:30ish: lights out, goodnight!
That is basically it…with some exceptions. I always joke my job is around the clock. I have had clients call in all hours of the day wanting things done, I had to even call Disney on Christmas eve for a client. I try to get quotes done within the same day I get them unless I get them in the evening or on a weekend. I TRY to not work on the weekends as much as possible but its not always possible. Also, sometimes I get up and run in the mornings instead of after lunch. Then there are days I will go run errands in the morning and so I just work later into the day. I love the flexibility, except when it cuts into family time. There are days I will work 9 hours, and days I will work 4-5. It really just depends! But, that is a rough estimate in case anyone was curious!
QOTD: Do you have an odd schedule like me? Do you enjoy having flexibility or a set schedule?
sorry for the picture-less post…
