A day in the life at 45

tcr! · Dec 8, 2017 at 6:55 am

Yesterday I got up around 6:30 am, drank coffee, and worked on the diaries magazine until it was time to get Maggie up and going. Got ready for work and Maggie off to school. Did my whole work day thing and got back home around 4:30 pm.

I scrubbed the purple bathroom, put a load of laundry in the wash, and found Maggie and I’s gloves. Because winter. Jocelyn came over and Maggie and I visited with her for a few minutes.

Svea had messaged me earlier about a pair of antique doors[1] she had uncovered while excavating so Maggie and I roared out to her place. Svea showed us her Swedish kitchen and the excavation spot. We visited for a little bit more and then loaded the doors up in the truck.

Maggie and I stopped at Chipotle. Because dinner. I was ready to sit down for a few minutes but Chipotle on Randall is loud at that hour so we got takeout. We went through Starbucks drive-thru because Christmas Tree Frappuccinos and I needed something to power-thru.

Back home Maggie and I ate our burrito bowls and pondered the Trader Joe’s Ugly Sweater Cookie Kit in their most recent Fearless Flyer. I put the laundry from earlier in the dryer and muled the doors inside. Gave them a good scrub while listening to my favorite 80s jams. Because Huey Lewis. Moved the doors into their temporary spots and folded the damn laundry.

I herded myself into the shower and then signed over the Cube title. Because end of an era. Packed my lunch for the following day and got the morning coffee ready, watered the plants and Christmas tree and herded Maggie to bed. Then it was time to flop on the couch so I put Fist of Fury on the TV. Because Bruce Lee.

Sara came over and we visited for a bit, caught up on the comings and goings of the day, and then lights out. Because often times being a grown-up means that we’re busy.

If I don’t respond to your messages or your emails in a timely manner, days like these are why. I’m sure you guys got your own stuff going on and completely understand. 😊
