A Day in the Life of a Slob Blogger

Simply Rebekah is hosting her annual “Day in the Life of . . . ” link-up for 2012 today.

I saw it last year, and it looked so fun!  When she mentioned it in January, I asked her to remind me.  Because remembering really isn’t my thing.

So here it is (my life last Thursday):

(Warning: Seriously scary haven’t-looked-in-a-mirror-yet-is there-any-possible-worse-angle picture coming up.)

At 5:45, I awoke with a start:

I hadn’t posted on Wednesday at all.  That’s not like me.  So, I used the 45 minutes before my kids needed to get up to start writing a post.

(Yes, my pillowcase is embroidered with a name that is neither “Dana” nor “Nony.”  I know that there are people in this world who want embroidered pillowcases to be properly distributed throughout the house under the matching heads, but I am not one of those people.)

At 6:45, I was making lunches for my three kids:

Simply Rebekah is green.  She will likely never send her not-yet-in-school children to school with a lunch in a paper bag.

As someone who is totally incapable of remembering to collect and clean out lunchboxes before they are rancid, I love the disposability of my method.  Every day starts fresh this way.

Forgive me, Earth, but our home must function and this mother can’t stand finding half-eaten-on-Friday bananas . . . on Monday morning.

(Spell-check says “disposability” isn’t a word.  I say it is.)

At 7:45, I was out running:

Go ahead and laugh, but I really was.  That’s a picture of the iPhone armbandI got Hubby for his birthday.

I ran for a whole two minutes, and I’m pretty sure one of those two minutes was 7:45.

And remember, this is ONE day in my life.  Anything can happen on one particular day . . .

At 8:45, I was washing pots and pans:

Thursday was a catch up day after my e-book launch on Monday followed by two days out of the house for Bible study on Tuesday and Wednesday.  I did load and run the dishwasher, but had been pretending that some of my big stuff didn’t exist.

At 9:45, I was steam-mopping my kitchen floor:

Like I said, Thursday was my first catch-up day after several weeks of tunnel-vision spent getting out 28 Days to Hope for Your Home (which you should totally buy).  While I was ready to get back to some of my big cleaning tasks after surviving on daily tasks for a month, I decided to just stick to mopping.  That’s what I do on Thursdays.  I need that schedule to keep me from getting scattered and half-doing three different things in an attempt to catch up.

Yes, that’s my lovely Oreck Steam-It® .

At 10:45, I was finishing that post I woke up thinking about, and checking if any new posts of mine had been pinned on Pinterest:

Are you following my (still developing) Pinterest boards? Have you pinned any of my posts?  If so, thanks so much!

At 11:45, I was partying hard at 100s Day:

Thursday was the 100th day of school, so I went to my daughter’s kindergarten to join in the festivities during her P.E. Class.

At 12:45, I was back home, drinking a big glass of icewater:

Fine.  And eating mozzarella sticks from Sonic that I grabbed on my way home from the school.  (So much for the running . . . )

At 1:45, I was finishing up a freelance post:

At 2:45, I was starting the school pick-up rounds:

I twisted and turned to get this picture behind me while stopped at a stoplight.

At 3:45, I was losing a game of Fairy Dominoes:

At 4:45, I was trying to whittle down the loveseat-full of clean laundry (from Monday):

Remember, it was a catch-up-from-a-month-of-tunnel-vision day. Totally legit excuse.

At 5:45, I was making Chicken Fried Rice:

Since the ramen I planned to use in stir-fry had somehow disappeared . . .

At 6:45, I was cleaning up the kitchen:

At 7:45, our power went out.

So I have no more pictures.  Just close your eyes . . . that’s what it looked like.  Hubby and I spent the rest of the evening talking in the dark, thankful that it was neither terribly hot nor terribly cold.

I didn’t get anything else done, but a night of having nothing to do but talk to your husband is really not a bad thing at all.

Whew!  That was fun, but also a lot of work!  Go check out the “Day in the Life” posts that are linked up at Simply Rebekah!
