Since I work for a catering company, or at least I do for one more week, I don’t have a set schedule. My work schedule is business dependent. So some mornings I might go in at 5 then not until 7 the next. I’m hoping to find some more normalcy in my next job.
My Wednesday life has been pretty set this summer, especially the past month, so I’ll walk you through a typical Wednesday for me.
4am- I wake up and go downstairs start the coffee and feed our 2 dogs and crazy bird. Next I go upstairs to make the bed then back downstairs to put away the dishes from the previous day and get a cup of coffee. (I’m not a morning person and I’m pretty sure by now that I never will be therefore I require caffeine in the morning)
4:15- I take my coffee upstairs and check my email hoping for a dream job offer. Since I didn’t receive one I check craigslist and indeed for a dream job posting. After no luck with that I read some blogs and scroll through facebook.
5:00- I try to make myself look presentable by brushing my teeth, washing my face and cramming my contacts into my tired eyes.
5:20- I grab my bag with my work clothes for the day, which I thoughtfully laid out the night before, and kiss my husband good-bye. I also grab some water and a banana on my way out the door. I love bananas!
5:40- I drive to a local high school, find a place to park and walk to the track for the workout with the Luna Chix.
5:45-7:00- We complete our challenging, yet wonderful, track workout. I grab a luna bar and eat it while walking back to my car.
7:05-7:15- I drive to work. Once I arrive I go to the bathroom to make myself less offensive smelling after the workout with my On the Go Sports Towels. I eat my banana and clock in around 7:30. I’m really supposed to be there at 7:00, but it’s slow during the summer so work has been okay with my fashionable lateness.
7:30-12:00- We make pastries to fulfill the orders for the day then start prepping for the next day. (I try not to eat all of the pastries.)
12:00-12:30- We sit in the coolest place that we can find and eat lunch. It’s crazy hot working in a kitchen in the summer.
12:30-2:00- We finish our prep work the clean up and plan out what we need to do for the next day, including what time we need to arrive.
2:00-2:30- I drive home while listening to my music way too loud.
2:30- I arrive home and let my dogs out. Then I do a quick recheck of my email, craigslist, and indeed. I’m hopefully able to send out a few resumes to perspective employers.
3:00-3:50- Iron Strength! It’s a hard workout, but I think it’s helping to make me stronger.
4:00- I feed the dogs then go pick up Haylie from daycare.
4:20- We return home. Haylie likes to hang out on the stairs for a while before finally venturing upstairs and into the kitchen. She has a snack and some juice while I get her things organized for daycare the next day. We then pretty much play and relax a little until dinner which my husband usually prepares. Since I spend my days working in a kitchen, I’m more than happy that he makes dinner. (There has a tendency of being a good meltdown from the little one in there somewhere.)
6:30-7:15- We eat dinner then I clean up and wash the dishes. If there is time left we play a little more.
7:15-8:00- Haylie’s bath time! Followed by milk and a story.
8:00-8:30-My shower time! I’m usually in bed around 8:30 or so. Then I tend to play around on my phone instead of going straight to sleep.
9:00- I’m out for the night. I really need as close to 8 hours of sleep as I can possibly get. Then I get up and do some version of this day all over again. I love little family and my crazy days.
