A Day in the Life at the Drama House

Monday, October 13, 2008

Mrs. G has asked that we share a typical day with you. Being an at home mom, many of my days are carbon copies of one another: lather, rinse repeat. And I'm OK with that.

I have my
book club, my blogging group, my adopted soldier and The Bitches to help mix things up. And this past weekend I took a little trip to Orlando to meet some of my newest blog friends (more on that later).

My day starts fairly early.

After much grumbling and stalling we head upstairs.

I feed both animals, make lunch and it's back downstairs for the brushing of the teeth and hair, finding of the shoes and Star Wars Lego guys and then off to school.

Occasionally I get to walk Drama Kid into school to say goodbye and if I'm lucky I get a hug and kiss before he runs off.

After drop off I head down to the beach for my walk.

By the time I get to the beach it's about 9:15. I walk for distance not speed so I'm usually not home until close to 11:00. I have breakfast which is some combination of coffee, tea, chai latte, cereal or my oatmeal.

Then I shower and spend hours some time on the computer. I'll start laundry, load the dishwasher and try not to cringe every time I walk by Drama Kid's room.

After this it's errand time. I'm either at Costco, Henry's, Trader Joe's, getting gas, returning library books and/or movies, buying birthday presents or any of the other things that "someone" should be doing to keep the household running smoothly.

By now it's close to pick up time at school and the mad dash to make it to martial arts class somewhat on time (school lets out at 3:10, class starts at 3:30). I read and listen to my iPod.

Class ends at 4:20 then it's home for homework, a little play time, dinner and getting Drama Kid to bed. Writing it out makes it seem really boring. Sometimes I think I need MORE in my life but then I take a step back and realize I have everything I need, and lots of stuff I want and it really can't get any better than that.

Head over to Mr's G. for a list of other Day in the Life stories.


  1. It doesn't sound boring at all. It sounds awesome, actually.

  2. You don't bore me. And what? Is Jenny a regular over here now? I am so jealous! It was so great meeting you this weekend we should plan a reunion. On someone else's dime of course!

  3. Jenny- I know I shouldn't complain. Some days I get The Grass is Greener Syndrome.

    Renee- Right? Trust me, I'm beyond flattered! It was very nice meeting you too. A reunion would be great. I wonder if there are any other companies who need "our" perspective? Sandals resorts perhaps?

  4. I think your day sounds marvelous and I'm completely jealous! You get SO much done!
    I noticed you're reading Eat,Pray,Love and would like to hear what you thought of it when you're done.

  5. Ah yes, the eternal search for the Lego men. I hear you.

  6. You are living the fabulous life! Enjoy. :)

    p.s. I had such a fantastic time this weekend with you and all the wonderful ladies. WE definitely need to be invited somewhere else and our group has to be invited exclusively, we're like siblings for adoption, we cannot be separated :)

  7. Love the pictorial view of your day! And you know I'm jealous of the beach walk, as I navigate cactus and desert sand out here. :)

    It was great meeting you this weekend @ Disney too!

  8. Lego men stink?

    I wish I had your day! I keep thinking that if I could be a SAHM, I'd have all the chaos under control.

  9. Funny how much caffeine we all require. :) It's a common thread in all of the Day in a Life Photo Essays I've seen.

    Thanks for sharing.

  10. Sarah- You would be the one to notice all the book titles! ;^)

  11. I live the lather, rinse, repeat life right now too. When things get "boring" I remind myself how soon I will not be the first one to hear who threw up in kindergarten and who made student council in 4th grade.

  12. I loved reading about your day. Drama Kid is so adorable. :-) And I noticed too that you are reading "Eat,Pray,Love". I loved that book.

  13. i love your "day in the life"! you've inspired me to post my own.

    crazy how the day goes by so fast, isn't it?

  14. I noticed EPL on the shelf--there are a lot of books in the world that need to be read. Thanks for the glimpse.

    Can't to hear the details on the Orlando trip.

  15. It's interesting to see how much we do in one day, isn't it? I wonder what my day would like in pictures. I liked your reference to feeding two animals. LOL!


Thank you for visiting and letting me know your thoughts!
