Hi everyone! I hope this post find you all well. I’ve been mulling over the idea of writing a day in my life post for awhile now. I mean, what is so interesting about my day? Honestly, my life is at a steady place which I am very grateful for.
So I bit the bullet and here we are. I wanted to write what my day was like when I’m not nannying. My day is completely different when I nanny. The day revolves around little J and he keeps me busy. Isn’t he such a cutie pie? I love him so much.
Without further ado, here is a typical summer day for me! I know the day is going to look much different in about a month. Maybe I will do a post then, also!
6:13 My alarm goes off. I snooze for a little bit, check out what the internets have been up to, and think about the day to come.
6:35 Get ready for the day. Brushin’ teeth, washing my face, and all of that good stuff. When I’m done in the bathroom, I go to change into my volunteer uniform. I dabbed on some sunscreen and apply some mascara. I’m not a big makeup person, so getting ready in the morning isn’t too strenuously long.
7:00 My favorite meal of the day… breakfast! I had an english muffin with sunflower seed butter (which I just emptied. Thankfully I have another jar!), cottage cheese, and some cherry craisins. This is my favorite breakfast ever. I need the energy to transport people for four hours!
7:30 Drive to the hospital, jam out to K-Love. You know, the usual.
7:48 My shift doesn’t start until 8:00, but being a chronic worrier, type-A person, I get to destinations quite early. I clock in, get some water, and say hi to the other transporters.
8:00-12:00 It was a fairly quiet day at the hospital. It wasn’t as slow as the week before which I was so grateful for. During my shift, I take patients to wherever they need to go throughout the hospital, carry specimens from surgery to the lab, help direct people, etc. I love volunteering there. It really affirms my desire to go into the medical field.
12:05 Drive home, jam out to K-Love… again.
12:25 Make myself some lunch. I made a salad loaded with tons of stuff including tofu, carrots, mushrooms, goldfish crackers, and more. I had a nice big yogurt to accompany it. It was a very satisfying lunch.
1:15-4:00 I was in the process of making bread. A family friend is coming to town tomorrow for his birthday and I wanted to make him my famous Rosemary Focaccia. The night before, I have to make a biga. The biga is essentially a starter to make bread.
So, I start to make the actual bread. It is time consuming and a lot of work, but the end is so worth it.
Between the intervals of waiting for the dough to rise, I read Son by Lois Lowry. It is the last book to The Giver quartet. The Giver is one of my favorite books of all time so I am very excited to see what happens. I didn’t particularly enjoy the middle two, but Son seems better than those but not nearly as good as The Giver.
3:00 I have an afternoon snack consisting of a bag Trader Joe’s kettle corn paired with a spoonful of almond butter. ‘Twas delicious.
4:00 I take the bread out of the oven (cue angelic singing) and talk with my mom. When I get home or in this case, when she gets home, I love talking about our days together. She truly is a blessing.
4:30 Check out my syllabus for my Biology class coming up this fall. I checked out the curriculum and I couldn’t be more excited. In this class we will learn basic biology along with many other advanced subjects including cystic fibrosis, Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium, pedigrees, enzyme catalysis, and more.
I’m going to party hard with my biology research.
5:15 Eat dinner. I have my usual- a chicken and swiss sandwich with steamed cauliflower, and a cookie.
6:00 I clean my dishes and write a little.
7:00 I head over to Kohls to look for some sweatshirts. I got a $10 off coupon in the mail so I wanted to take full advantage of it. Along with a sweatshirt, I got a sweater on clearance for $5 and some pajamas.
This is the sweatshirt I got.
8:00 I get in my pajamas and scroll through Instagram for a bit. I noticed that my room was a bit messy to I tidied up a little bit. Straightening up just makes me feel so much better.
8:30 I get my night snack- cheesecake ice cream with some cinnamon bun goldfish crackers. I sit down with my yummy snack while I watch an episode of How I Met Your Mother.
9:00 I take a shower and get ready for bed. Again, the usual.
9:30 Ah, cozy bed. Good night!
Yes, I go to bed quite early. No, I don’t mind it. I don’t function very well at night. I’m more of an early bird. Like the saying goes- “Early to bed, early to rise.”
