Just a few words about my “typical” day… I have no such thing as a typical day or a routine. I work varied hours in my job – days, nights, weekends, and so on. Due to working at hospital and wanting to avoid HIPAA violations, photographing a “work day” is not possible for me (nor would I probably have time!). So, I decided to record an “off day,” where I had errands and a bunch of other things to do!
5:30 AM Husband’s alarm goes off so he can catch his flight – he travels for work from time to time. I kiss him goodbye, and go back to sleep for a bit.
7:00 AM My alarm goes off. I get up, feed the pooch, and get ready for the day.
7:45 AM Head out, and make the necessary Starbucks pit stop. Lately my go-to is a Grande Americano with light cream. And apparently I must have mumbled, ergo, today my name is Angie.
8:00 AM Start the approximately two hour drive north towards my home town. I’ve been listening to the audiobook Swamplandia, by Karen Russell, and I’m not sure what to make of it yet. I seriously don’t know what I did to stay awake before discovering the joy of the audiobook.
10:00 AM Quick stop at DSW Shoe Warehouse to pick out bridesmaid shoes for my sister’s wedding, which is swiftly approaching.
11:00 AM Now is where I admit to driving two hours to get to the hair salon I frequent. I’m highly loyal to my sylist, because she’s amazing. In recent past, I lived out of my home state for three years, and let’s just say, I’ll never leave her again!
1:00 PM Running late! This is my appointment time to get measured for alterations to my bridesmaid dress!
1:30 PM This is the time I actually made it to my appointment, and just walked in like I wasn’t late, and said my appointment was at 1:30 PM. They didn’t say a word, and all was well. (By the way, normally I wouldn’t do this, but they’ve been feisty with me in the past regarding my “out of town” status. Moving on…)
2:00 PM Time to drive back to my homeland. More Swamplandia.
3:50 PM Swing through the library to pick up my books on hold.
4:00 PM Arrive home, and it’s time to walk and feed the pooch. Her name is Fuji (like the apple), and she’s the light of my life. For real.
4:30 PM For the next several hours, I clean up a few things around the house, read for awhile, catch up on some blog reading, do some blog writing, answer a few work e-mails, and so on.
7:30 PM Get the call from my friend that she’s out of work, so I head out to meet her for dinner.
8:00 PM Arrive at the restaurant, which is this delicious ramen place I’m completely addicted to. My selection, Bacon, Apple & Goat Cheese Mazeman Ramen plus Miso Deviled Eggs, looked and tasted SO MUCH better than depicted in the photo above, but I accidentally ate most of it before remembering to take the photo. Mmmmmm….
10:00 PM Back home now, doing some reading before bed and snuggling with the pooch.
10:30 PM I work in the morning, so lights out, and Friends. Zzzzzzz…..
This was super fun, although definitely confirmed I could never vlog, or really be any kind of “lifestyle blogger.” I can’t wait to see all of your Day in the Life posts!
