Dang it....I made this committment to do this every Wednesday and here it is almost midnight....but it's not late yet. If you want to join in the click on the picture and Finish the prompts:
1. A typical day in my life… I usually wake up around 6:20 just to make sure that Darian is in the kitchen eating breakfast (he's almost 16 and doesn't need me to hold his hand while he gets ready for school.) He tells me good-bye and I go back to sleep, with one eye open, to make sure Harley gets up at 7:00 and gets herself out the door. She is almost 14 and I sure don't need to help her out (and she wouldn't let me anyway). She leaves the house at 7:45. We are very lucky that the bus picks them up right at our front door. Then I head back to sleep until sometime between 10-11, depending upon when Richard starts to stir. I know that sounds terrible but we are up late (and sometimes a lot) at night. I get him up in the wheelchair and to the table where he goes about brushing his teeth and washing up for breakfast. I fix his breakfast, look around on the computer, take him to the BR and settle him into his chair. Then I shower and half the day is gone. The rest of the afternoon is spent doing what needs done. Like the laundry, dishes, floors, napping etc. The kids both have atletic practices and don't get home until 6:30. We eat dinner, do homework, watch TV, supervise their getting things ready for the next day and everyone goes to bed at their respective times. After I settle Richard down for the night I do some computer work (I like to call it that!) and sometime around 1 a.m. I finally settle into my bed. We get up in the morning and do it all over again.....
2. You’ll never see me…in a bikini. If you did you would want to claw your eyes out. Take my word for it.
3. It’s really unattractive when a guy/girl…make out in public.
4. If I could buy one thing right now, it would be…wood floors throughout my entire house. How much easier that would make my life.
5. I have high expectations for…my grandkids(the two who live with us) to grow up and be very different from the people who gave them life.
Now go on over to The Coastal Chicster and see what others had to say this week.
I so wish that I could sleep late sometimes. I don't think I am wired for that. I am up without assistance between 5 and 6 in the morning. Even if I am up past mid-night - the latest I can manage to stay in bed is 7 or 7:30. It is a curse for sure. And as I have gotten older, I am more than ready for bed at 9 ... when mom lived with me I would force myself to stay up till 11 for some "me time." But my early to rise pattern was well on it way to being set. And good sleep is becoming more and more of a rare thing.ReplyDelete
I spent almost 25 years working night shift 11 p.m to 7 a.m. so it is pretty easy for me to sleep in the day time. And I am often awake up until 2-3 a.m. so I don't really think of it as sleeping in. I think of it as getting close to 8 hours. And most important, I use sleeping pills or I would never be able to get any sleepDelete
Different start times for the schools is a weird concept for me. Your day makes me tired just reading about it.ReplyDelete
Both kids start school at the same time. But Darian's school is 15 miles away and Harley is less than a mile. They will both leave next year at 6:50 a.m. They are in the middle of the bus route. They get to school about 10 minutes before it starts (at the high school)Delete
Will next year they go to the same school? Elexis is at school, most mornings, by 7:20. She has a couple club meetings before school and she usually goes to before school practice for orchestra. I wish somedays I could go back to sleep after dropping her off, but when I get home there is always something to be done. Plus, I usually hit the gym after I drop her off, so I am to wound up to sleep after that. I usually take a nap in the afternoon for an hour. For rarely leaving the house though, your day sounds extremely tiring. We never really know how much we do, until we type it out.ReplyDelete
Yes, next year they will go to the same school and will both leave the house at the same time. 6:53!Delete
Let me get this straight--you're okay with two guys making out in public, or two girls making out in public, but not with one guy and one girl--ha. I can tell you don't live in Eugene, Oregon, or you would have included all such options.ReplyDelete
LOL....I am Not okay with anyone making out in public. I guess I just took the statement literally. That is how I roll, usually.Delete
It's so good to "hear" your voice again, Paula! .... ya, I've been (inadvertently) off the grid. Feeling close to you and my blogging circle of friends, I really enjoy the "typical day" narratives. 'Tho we might never lay eyes on one another in person, it's kind of nice knowing what y'all are up to at any given time! (Hope that doesn't come off sounding creepy - lol!ReplyDelete
Sending wishes for a peaceful eve!
I feel exactly the same way and it doesn't sound creepy at allDelete
