A Day in the Life

A Day in the Life…

Happy Thursday, friends! Chris and I only have 3 more days on our Daniel Fast.

I’ve been hungry lately for something besides a baked potato or salad….I think I can, I think I can.

Today I wanted to share what a typical day in my life looks like.

I do these posts every season because it’s fun to look back on what was going on at that particular time in my life.

Here was my Tuesday this week:

I slept in a little because I didn’t have to wash my hair, so I got up at 5:50 a.m.

Showered, got dressed, emptied the dishwasher and finished making the girls’ lunches.

Taught one class for VIPKID (6:30-7:00 a.m.)

Ate breakfast~ whole wheat flatbread with organic peanut butter and all natural jelly

Braided Emily’s hair

Finished getting ready (I always wait to get in my outfit of the day until the very end of the morning )

Started a load of laundry

Went to work and made sure everything was prepped for the day. I teach 2 classes of 8th grade math, then 1 high school Algebra 1 class, and then an advanced 8th grade math class.

Go home for lunch~ salad, baked potato, pickle, and some wheat crackers.

Fold the laundry and switch clothes from washer to dryer

I had to take Chris to his truck to get some pictures sent off for the insurance company. (These pictures don’t show half of the damage).

Back to school and end my day teaching two more advanced 8th grade math classes

Volleyball open gym after school from 3:30-5:00

Chris picks me up (we only have one vehicle right now) and we go through BK drive thru for the girls.

Go home, feed the girls and start to fix us some stuff for supper. Chris ends up finishing the cooking ….

Because I have to drop this one off at basketball practice at 6:00.

Get back home and eat supper~ whole wheat pasta with organic spaghetti sauce, whole wheat wrap with organic peanut butter, corn, brown rice with veggies

Wash dishes and clean the kitchen up Take clothes out of dryer and lay them out on the table to have everyone put theirs up Pick Emily up from basketball practice at 7:45 and then finally sit down for a bit to watch This Is Us with Chris. (Girls are taking showers, getting things ready for the next day, and doing laundry during this time)

Put the girls to bed and then eat a little bed time snack~ simply organic corn chips and some organic salsa Read my Bible/devotion and have quiet time Time for bed! 10:00 p.m.

This is what a typical day in my life looks like. It’s busy, chaotic, but such a blessing!

Thank you, Lord, for everything you have given me!

  1. The food on your fast looks pretty good. I bet you are happy to be almost finished though! You could be Gabbie’s math teacher – she’s in 8th grade. But she takes geometry!

  2. How are you liking the Daniel fast? I want to hear the details! Tuesday must have been a great day for a day in the life post. I love that you go home for lunch, I love these posts so much! I also love the look into your teaching day!

  3. Love DITL posts – I just shared one on Tuesday. 🙂 And I love that you live so close to your job that you can eat lunch at home.

  4. I love these posts; so fun! I should do one, but I feel like though our days are busy, they would be pretty boring to read about since most days we are home schooling. 🙂 I give you so much credit for teaching math, let alone 8th grade and high school!!! I bet you are awesome at it.

  5. I’m watching that episode of This is Us right now as I type. I’m curious about your Daniel fast… what exactly does it entail?
