I have gotten a couple of questions of the past few months about what I do during the day. It’s pretty obvious I’m at home when I tweet about watching Desperate Housewives on Hulu (So addicting by the way!) and going to the gym in the middle of the day.
But I am far from bored or relaxing all day long! Granted my days vary a LOT but this is a rough outline of what a day in my life looks like:
7:10 wake up, go downstairs and take the dogs out and feed them Chat with Bobby for a few minutes until he leaves at 7:25. Make coffee
7:25 See Bobby off to work, turn on the computer. Check emails, twitter, Facebook, blogs, start working on Disney quotes, etc.
8:30 Daily devotion/Bible reading and prayer time
9:00 Breakfast. usually either a protein bar or greek yogurt with granola, blueberries, etc.
9:30 More e mail checking, work up Disney quotes and running skirts orders
10:30 Head to the gym or for a run outside (or grocery store, or running errands, etc)
11:30 come home, shower (or put away groceries, etc.)
11:45 do some light cleaning. Put a load of laundry on, pick up around the house, unload the dishwasher
12:15 take the dogs out, eat lunch (soup, sandwich, etc.)
12:30 clean the bathrooms, or dust, or vacuum, or file papers. Whatever the most glaring things are that day.
1:30 take a break. Watch TV or Hulu, surf the web, play with the dogs, call my mom or Bobby to say hi
2:30 prep my blog for the next day, set it to publish the next morning. Work on Disney quotes and running skirt stuff. Feed the dogs
3:30 work on more Disney quotes, answer blog e mails, chat on twitter
4:30 Bobby calls and says he is on his way home, will be here around 5:10. I then go start cooking dinner. Take dogs out.
5:15 ish Bobby gets home, we eat dinner
5:45 sit outside or on the couch and chat about our days, let our food settle
6:15 take the golf cart to the gym with Bobby, lift weights
7:15 come back home, shower, check blogs again, answer questions about Disney or running skirts, check twitter, and Facebook
8:30 hang out with Bobby, watch TV together, get ready for bed , take dogs out, etc.
10:15 ish go to bed, get ready to do it all over again!
So, as you can see, my day is slightly random but very full. One thing to note is that I don’t have “work hours.” With my jobs, I am constantly answering e mails 24/7. It never stops, so if I plan a vacation for you and you get an e mail at 9:00 at night, you know why. I get bored easy so I try to not stay seated too long. I could easily say “I am going to work on quotes and orders from 9-2” but I would go crazy, so I break it up and work on things as they come. Some days I DO sit still and work on things for 4 hours at a time because I am so busy, but other days I have more time to clean, run errands, etc. It really just depends. Also note when I say “check blogs, get on twitter, etc.” this is partially work as well, I am tweeting about my jobs, doing research on current offers, or trying to get more exposure for my brands.
doing laundry is way more fun in my red washer and dryer!
So, there ya go! I do love my work because I have a lot of flexibility. I can go visit my family for the day and just work into the night when I get home. Or I can meet a friend for coffee and get up early to get work done before I go. I am constantly checking my e mail when I am away in case a client from either job needs me. I take pride in my work and doing things well.
I love to run at the beach when the weather is nice!
QOTD: What is your favorite part of your day? Do you like to buckle down and work all at once or sporadically throughout the day?
