A Day in the Life

I know I'm always bitching about how busy I am and some of y'all are probably like "whatever, we know you plop your fat ass on the couch at night and eat ben and jerry's straight out the carton". Really, that would have been true a few months ago, but now, not so much. This is what I did yesterday....

6:00 - curse alarm clock, shower, get ready for work
6:30 - wake up BB, bribe him into going potty, and get him ready for school

BB - I don't wanna go to school!
Me - You have to go to school and mommy has to go to work, that's just how it is.
BB - WHY????
Me - So you can learn stuff
BB - I'm learned enough
Me - Clearly

6:45 - drop BB off at school and head to work
7:10 - get to work and sprint to my office, hoping no one will notice I'm late
----- in between doing actual work, make a grocery list, read three chapters, write a paper, and respond to the three mandatory discussion questions about what to do with a used catheter, does the morgue really prefer that you leave tubing in place, and how to handle your patient dying
5:45 - leave work, woo hoo!!!
6:15 - grocery shopping at ghetto kroger cuz I'm too tired to battle walmart
6:45 - get home, unload groceries, start making dinner, unload dishwasher
7:00 - while dinner is cooking, put together next nights dinner in crock pot
7:15 - eat dinner, make brownies with BB, then clean up the kitchen

Me - don't eat the batter BB
BB - Why?
Me - because it has raw eggs in it and you'll get salmonella
BB - Daddy does it.
Me - *sigh*

7:45 - bathe the little monster....

BB - (pointing to his penis) Is this my toy?
Me - *horrified* No, that is not a toy.
BB - Can I play with it.
Me - **wishing I was anywhere BUT in this bathroom at this very second** No, you can't pl...well, yes, but not around other people....alone. No, well, just....Big Daddyyyyyy!!!!!

8:00 - wrestle him into his pj's, stuff a brownie into my fat face wondering WTF I was thinking letting him have sugar this late
8:15 - get stuff ready for the next day, make a mental note to set alarm for 15 miutes earlier so maybe, just maybe, we won't be late - again.
9:00 - ???? - study until I fall asleep and subsequently wake up with my face stuck to pg 187 of my pharmacology book. Yeah, I drool. What about it?

i think you're right.

but where the heck is the frozen yogurt machine?? i am assuming it is in 6. they should let you know about such important things on orientation day!

i'm actually quitting next week (i think). and to think i could have had a normal friend here!

Crystal said...

ok. so when you say 'getting fresh air' do you mean what i think you mean?

Crystal said...

and just so you know...

i have one friend from work who knows about my blog. more people would scare me.
so she may bounce over here after seeing your comment. just a heads up if you see more work IPs. :)

Crystal said...

oh my god! i love that kind of fresh air!

it is very rare to meet other people who love the outdoors as much as i do around here.

Crystal is such a flippin chatterbox, isn't she *LOL*

Sassy Pants said...

Sad that you're quitting so soon. I will be too as soon as I graduate next year. I'm convinced that this is where happy comes to die.

Lily said...

I'll miss her... and our lunches to Monterey's or Ichebon Wahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

Crystal said...

i am jealous that you are gonna go to healthcare. that's like my dream and stuff.

dumb ol environment

Sassy Pants said...

BFF and I go to Ichibon all the time. And pappasito's. We like to eat.

Crystal said...

ichibon and papasito's both rock. trying to stay awake after lunch sucks. srsly, this one time i fell asleep in a meeting and hit my head on the desk. it was worth it though.

Sassy Pants said...

Add a margarita to that and it's all over. You may as well go home.

Crystal said...

you have margarita??

where have you been the last three years?? dammit.

Lily said...

I am in 8... workig hard *LOL*

Lily said...

we never go to Pappasitos... ~sigh~

Sassy Pants said...

So if Lily is in 8 then I probably have seen her here and there.

Yeah, sometimes margaritas are a must. Like "if I don't have a margarita at lunch I may bail out the window when I get back"

Lily said...

Yah, difficult to miss me. I am Large and (wishin I was) In Charge

Crystal said...

maybe we can all do lunch sometime before i leave.

if i leave. i have to qualify that with an "if" because since i am actually talking about it out loud, the gods can tell i am excited about it and will make them call me and tell me they don't want to give it to me.

Sassy Pants said...

Lunch sounds great!

Crystal said...
