Some days we get to the good gym - today Mac did 8 miles on the bike and I felt good about doing the stepper and weights.
Most days it is still super hot here in August and it feels good to jump in the pool after a workout.
Some days I jump in too - the kids love it when I swim with them.
Some days there is a mountain of laundry and an unmade bed. Most days Jessie the flat coat retriever is in the middle of whatever I'm doing.
Most days I shower after the workout and before car circle - so something like 2 pm. I don't think I've ever taken a selfie in the shower before - this one was inspired by the one on Ali Edwards' blog.
Most days I spot a dolphin or manatee from the window in my shower.
Most days we have turkey sandwiches for lunch, most days Jessie the flatcoat sits on the counter while I make lunch and we eat it. She politely begs for a bite - but she never takes food without permission - our late yellow lab Dandy never got physically up on the counter, but he could stand up with this paws on the counter to eat the entire sandwich without permission if I wasn't watching.
Most days I pick up Allison from school even though Charlie says that he'll be picking her up every day - this is day 3 and I'm 3 for 3. Most days she is happy to see me and tells me all about her new friends and her day. Most days she controls the radio and most days we like the same kind of music.
Some days home school happens upstairs if we get a late start aren't done when Allison gets home.
Most days he is cooperative about homeschool but most days handwriting is a struggle - this is actually one of his better handwriting samples. We are working on writing this year.
Most days she does drawing all on her own - lately it's been Manga. She is talented and she practices hard and often. She is an artist at heart.
Most nights she gives Daddy a better hug than she gives me and lately she puts herself to bed.
Most nights Jessie sleeps in Allison's room.
Most nights I read Harry Potter to him in my room and he gets a case of the giggles at some point and I have to tell him to settle down already or I'm going to stop reading and just go to sleep.
Most nights it is hard for me to actually fall asleep.
A few notes about the Week In the Life Project:
Blogging about Week in the Life fell off my to do list for Wednesday so I'm getting this done on Friday morning - I think getting the journaling portion done the night or the morning after is probably best but I'll take what I can get and have to trust my two day old memory.
I'll also say that getting and printing photos from my iphone and ipad is not very easy - but taking photos with these devices is - so I'm thinking that I should go back to when I used to used my Canon point and shoot for the majority of my everyday picture taking. I still keep it in my purse but I just don't use it. Mental note to start using my Canon point and shoot again.
Also (while I'm waiting for the photos to upload), I think I'm going to make a Week in the Life photo book on Shutterfly. I'm pretty sure I did this several years ago and it worked out well. I also think that I'll order my favorite photos as prints.
