Girls Write Out
Tuesday, June 14, 2011
I feel like Michael J. Fox must have felt when he finally arrived back home and slept in his own bed. This year so far has been a whirlwind: a visit to AZ, a trip to Nashville, Dave's cancer diagnosis and surgery, another trip to AZ, then rushing home to take care Alexa while her parents went to Jamaica. Now we are home. We go to sleep on our own bed, and boy, did it feel good!

So things are back to normal. For me, normal is writing for at least 8 hours a day, catching up on email, doing radio interviews, having my coffee, cooking in my own kitchen, and getting back to my church. :) Doesn't sound terribly excited but it sure feels good! Today I'm waiting for the repairman to come to see why our fridge is freezing everything.

So what's a normal day for you? And don't think it's too boring. Boring sounds good right about now. :)

I LOVE my normal boring day!

Take kids to school, devotions, writing, errands/chores, pick up kids, homework shuffle, sports, reading/TV, then bed. My day in one sentence.

And then there's summer where my routine takes a nosedive.

A normal day is anything but slow and boring. However, any time at the end of the day where I can spend time with my son certainly makes up for any craziness! I hope things slow down for you some. Reading The Lightkeeper's Daughter right now. :)

A normal day...I really don't have normal in my life right now. My dream day is waking up well rested at about 7 in the morning, reading my Bible in the sunroom and actually understanding what I've read, feeding the cats and sticking them outside in seventy degree weather, writing ten pages, eating breakfast, housework, reading, exercising, then when Mel gets home from work on time at 6:30, eating as we watch NCIS, Criminal Minds, Psyche or some other show, then putting the cats to bed and going to bed at a decent hour.

I am up most nights all night so a "normal" day is to sleep until noon, take medications and go over emails and news of the night/morning, have lunch, play a computer game or two until DH comes home, sit in my chair to catch up on pre-recorded TV shows and do some knitting, take a nap, take medications, eat dinner, then back to my chair and more knitting. Of course, then I need to take more medications. Bedtime is around 1 am or so...hopefully to sleep. At 6 am I'm up to take medications (get the idea that I take a lot of meds?!?!) but then I'm able to get some really good sleep until noon when we start all over again.

Some may call that life VERY boring but one can become quite busy doing nothing!! LOL

Yours matches mine, Ruthie. Supplements and medications. I get tired of it, but can't do well without. I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't get up and around early in the morning. I also stay up late at night now.
