A Day in the Life of...

A Day in the Life of..
or The Good, Bad, and the Mundane.

I'd like to say that my blog readers have been asking me what a typical day in my life is like, but they haven't. I'd like to say that I had a very interesting day yesterday that I'd like to share, but I didn't. What I will say, here is an experiment I did. I documented a day of mine, so when someone asks me what I've been up to, I might have an answer instead of a blank.

Did the experiment help me understand how I spend my time on a typical day? Well, sort of.  Did I learn anything else? Yes, I learned that I don't need an exciting day to go to bed happy.

With no further ado, here is a day in the life of me.

Dawn broke and the cats' stomach alarms went off.  And the only way to turn them off was to feed them. So I fed them.

Next, I fed myself. I had my usual bowl of cereal (and some cookies.) But you won't see those. I like to present the illusion that I eat well.

After breakfast, Wally and I chased down Annie to give her her medicine. And after we caught her, we had to catch Leo for the same thing. The whole process was exhausting.

I was cutting it a little close, but on the way to work, but I stopped at the post office to mail a letter. Everything worked out just right and I made it to work on time. Hurray!

Work was fairly routine. Book, book, everywhere a book. I won't mention the piece of birthday cake I had because as you know I eat well.

After work, I went home for a healthful lunch of salad and cottage cheese. Fortunately, you can't see the three cookies I also had. And if you ask me about them, I will deny I know anything about them. I usually always have a good diet.

Then I was off to see the eye doctor. (Get the pun. "See" the eye doctor. I amuse myself sometimes.) All was well and I got some free samples of eye drops.

I decided that I should pick up a few groceries on the way home. Can't live without skim milk and Cheerios. Part of a good diet you know.

After I got home, I did a little weeding. The rain we've had made the weeds fairly easy to dig and pull.

While I was out, I thought I had better take the recycling down to the curb for tomorrow's pickup. It seems like we only remember to do this about half of the time, so I was pleased with myself.

Then for some work on my blog. Joining me, with a little lap time, were the cats. All of them took a turn but Annie. She was still a little leery of me because the this morning's medicine chase.

It was soon time to start supper. We had baked potatoes, green beans, and pork. And no cookies. (Ward got to them before I had a chance.)

After supper we had a little relaxing time in front of the TV watching the Big Bang. We all love that show (except Wally).

Soon it was time for bed.

And a little reading. (And a few cookies that Ward didn't get to. Darn, they were good, but I had to brush my teeth again.)

The End.
