A (New) Typical Day

This picture makes me smile. It is the background on my phone and I look at it at least 50 times a day. Kyle and I have been married 1 month today. We are celebrating with "deep fried night" on our weekly dinner menu. Kyle's idea, if you couldn't guess. We got a new fryer for a wedding gift and he pumped to use it. I feel like I almost have our house in order. The dining room is still a bit of a mess, but I plan on getting it all cleaned up before Thanksgiving. Our new bedding is on and looks great. Our kitchen is filled with new appliances. Our den is looking nice with new decorative pillows. And our dinners are much prettier now that they are served on new Fiesta ware! Peacock color is so pretty.

Since starting my new job, I have taken on a whole new daily routine. A routine that I like about 10 times more than my old routine. I used to be up by 6:30, showered and out the door, walking into work at 7:45. I sat at a desk all day, clocking in and out for lunch. It began to suck the life out of me. I felt like I wasn't getting to enjoy life. Add a trip to the gym on at the end of the work day and I felt like I barely had time to see Kyle in the evenings.

Now, I wake up and have a cup of coffee and then go for a run at the park down the street. Then I do a little computer work. Then I head out to call on some accounts. It is a wonderfully relaxed schedule, and the best part is that I decided where and when I want to go. There, of course, are exceptions. Some days I have a meeting at the office. At 10 (much better than 7:30). Or I have to drive a supplier around town, tasting wines at accounts. And then I get to bring those wines home and enjoy them with Kyle. While I enjoy a nice night at home, with plenty of time to watch TV, read, or do laundry.

Now, if they could only let me have Christmas Eve off :)

  1. Too bad you can't have Christmas Eve off, but your new routine, generally, does sound lovely and it's so nice you can spend the evenings with your new husband! Congratulations on one month!!
