The "Day-to-Day" ME!

All About Me Challenge #11

I had been working in a private bank for more than twenty-six (26) years and in a government institution for five (5). When I retired in 2005 and became a “stay-at-home” Mom, I knew life would become a pretty much predictable routine but definitely not a boring one because I believe that “Life is what you make it!”.

Here is how my day goes (not in any particular order)…

05:00 AM -
Wake up and go to the bathroom
Say morning prayers
Prepare F’s milk and apple cider vinegar – honey - juice powder concoction
Check breakfast table
Prepare F’s “packed lunch/snacks”
Wake F up
Make bed and turn-off lights, electric fan, etc.

05:30 AM onwards -

Check if DS2 is already awake and getting ready for school
Monitor the message boards [car schedule and grocery list]
Monitor service car (driver, maintenance, gasoline)
Confer with Ate Baby on what dishes to prepare for the day’s meals
Check email messages and FB account; go blog-hopping and net-surfing
Go to the grocery, if needed
Update Grocery Monitoring List
Watch TV, read or listen to music
Do some filing, updating of records
Take a nap (only when really, really sleepy)
Attend Parent-Teacher Conferences for DS2
Pay bills (mostly credit card bills)
Go shopping (at the very least, window-shopping)
Work on scrapping and other craft projects
Prepare house budget and kids’ allowance
Fix house (re-arrange furniture, change d├ęcor)
Hear Mass; visit chapel
Do evening rituals
Take baths
Say evening prayers

11:00 PM -
Go to bed

...but Life can be a chore sometimes! LOL!
