A Day of Geek

A while back various bloggers were taking pictures of a typical day.  I really enjoyed being a fly on their wall.   Being a little slow on the uptake, I am finally getting around to doing this.


A London Fog, Beth Moore and time alone with the Creator of the Universe.  It makes getting out of bed so much easier.

7:30 am

This is just the first round of my children's breakfast.  They usually eat 3-4 platefuls of this.  I FEAR for when they are teens.  I may have to start selling my blood.  Or theirs.

9:00 am

The night before Sprout had mistaken his bed for a toilet.  I can see how that might happen, they are so similar and all.  This is the last of the laundry from that happy incident.

9:30 am-1:00 pm

I saw this a lot.  We went to the library and then Spud's therapy.  I am so thankful that my van has comfy seats, I spend a lot of time in them.  For all the cautious ones in my family, please note, this picture was taken when the car was stopped at a light.  I do not take pictures while driving, I am too busy texting.*

2:00 pm

With the boys safely in their rooms for quiet playtime I put together a couple of casseroles and some bread.  Before you think me a domestic queen, I make the dough in my breadmaker and then shape it and bake it.  It is a more useable shape that way.  This is about as domestic as I get.  I am only now noticing all the crumbs on the counter.  Classy.

4:00 pm

The rest of the afternoon consisted of stories, baths, supper and a game that involves monster trucks, my mixing spoons and running up and down the stairs repeatedly.  I've learned to not ask questions but just play along.

7:30 pm


8:00 pm

A solo shopping excursion.  Happiness is grocery shopping all by myself.

So, there you have it, a day in the life of a geek.  GLAMOUR all the time I tell you.

*Hey moms, I'm so very  kidding.  I do not text while driving.  Please do not call me.  Or Way Cooler.

Very, very glamorous!!! Except for the stopped at a light car picture comment. Because what are you trying to say? No animals, persons nor vehicles were harmed during my photograph. (And I don't know how to text. Seriously.)

Ha! Happiness = shopping by yourself!

and STOP texting while driving. Friends don't let friends text in the drivers seat. ;)

PS: when's my bread coming?

Like TM, I don't know how to text either.

Yum! Your bread looks so delicious it makes me think I should get back to baking bread... but not yet.
As for texting, our youngest is pushing me and I am resisting. HG could you do a blog on texting for dummies? .... and I knew that you would not text and drive, I'm not THAT much of a dummy!

I BARELY know how to text. Just sort of.

And I'm a huge Beth Moore fan and haven't done the Patriarch one so now I'm super curious. I'm sure it's good.

Now I want bread...

Your life is so glamorous!!! Almost as glamorous as mine...

I'm totally calling Way Cooler to let him know.

I have no idea HOW to text, so I'm pretty safe with that one. However, I do occasionally put on lipstick in the car. And yell at kids. :-)

So you are like your sister. Nice to see your plates match the bowls or did you run out of dishes
