Day in the Life ~ Spring 2018

It’s been a long time since I did a Day in the Life project. I used to be part of a few online communities that did them quite often, but that was years ago, so I have really missed seeing them. I think they’re so cool! DITL projects are like a mini documentary of your day, and I love getting to see glimpses into everyone else’s days, too. It just makes me happy. I think it’s because it makes me feel like we’re all connected, all going about our daily lives.

So imagine my excitement when I saw the new challenge over at Recapture Self to do a Day in the Life Project!

I finally did mine yesterday, and here are my photos from the day…

First, a collage of a few morning shots. This is how I wake up lately! Me in my CPAP mask (always; I never sleep a night without it), little boy snuggled behind me, dog snuggled between his and my legs, and husband next to us, too (not pictured). I have a new mug of water and my daily medication (Vit D and Zoloft for anxiety), too.

Morning routine continued with getting little guy off to school,

And coming back home, where Joe and I both had mini bagels with cream cheese for breakfast.

Joe got dressed while I took Ashton out.

After I got Joe off to work, I came home and showered, and headed off to the zoo, where they gave volunteers and staff a sneak peek at the new baby rhinos! They are the first rhinos the zoo has ever had in its 118 year history. This is Taj, and I love him! (Glenn is the name of the other rhino, and I still haven’t seen him yet!)

As I left the zoo, I ran into my brother and sis in law, Garth and Cinnamon, and their kids, and our friend, Ash, and her kids, too! It was such a nice surprise!! I’ve never just run into my family before. I’ve never lived close enough to them for that to even be possible until we moved up here. It was really cool!! Unfortunately, since I was in a hurry to get back to Homer, I didn’t think to get a photo of them! Dang it. Anyway, I’m seeing them tomorrow, and that’ll be fun, too.

After I got Homer from school, I realized I was really hot, and had gotten a lot of sun, since it was sunny and 78 degrees (after highs being only in the 50s for months). So, having apparently completely acclimated to the WA climate, I needed to take a little rest.

Homer took it easy, too, and played video games in the chair for a while, after playing with Ashton.

Then I got on my computer for a bit.

Homer and I played some Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze on Switch. He played as Funky Kong, the new character who’s pretty immune to most game hazards, and we still lost the level like four times before Homer asked to play by himself again (at which point he won against the boss!).

When it was time to get Joe from work, this was my awesome view.

After we got home, it was time to walk Ashton again.

We ordered dinner from Tacqueria El Gallo, which we love! Yum!

I helped Homer with homework, but forgot to take a picture of that. While he and Daddy played Fortnite, I hung out on my computer some more. Yes, this is the current state of my desk. Yes, it almost always looks like this. Someday, I may learn to be organized, but that day is not today!

Then it was bed time for the little guy. Homer chose a song to listen to while brushing his teeth:

And I read him The Wizard of Oz until he fell asleep.

I got up and hung out with Joe and Ashton for a while, and watched some tv.

Not pictured – taking Ashton out for the last time, and then getting in bed myself.

All in all, it was a pretty awesome day!! I want to try to do these about once a season, at least. I think it’s a really cool way to just see how someone’s day typically goes!

Thanks for coming by and sharing a (fairly) typical day with me! Have you ever done a Day in the Life project? If so, put the link in the comments – I’d love to take a look!!
