My Ideal weekday – Take One

July 06, 2013

This morning, by the time I reached work, I was super grouchy. After eating something, and taking a few deep breaths and reading two blog posts, I calmed down and started thinking. What would an ideal work day be for me, at this point? While I am doing tis, I thought I might as well turn it into a blog post – so I can revisit later on and either laugh at my foolishness or cry at my naivete.

Here goes:

5.30AM – Wake up. Make coffee and water the plants. Cut veggies / fruits and start the baby food steaming process.

5.45 – 6.20AM – Write my morning pages with coffee, and some Gregorian Chants – or as I do now, write my morning pages while pumping and drinking coffee.

6.20 – 6.40AM – Clean up the dirty bottles, prepare baby bottles and baby food, diapers for daycare.

6.40 – 7.00AM – Shower, get ready or work

7.00AM – 7.30AM – Baby wakes up. Play with her for 10 mins. Change her, sponge bath, get ready for daycare. Out of the door by 7.40AM latest

8.00 AM – Reach work. Make oatmeal and sit to work – no browsing, reading news and other time wasters.

11.45 – Go to the gym to climb / yoga. Once a week eat lunch with a friend / co-worker.

1.00 – 5.00 – Back at my desk. Eat lunch with work.

5.00 – Head home.

5.30 – 6.00 – Play with baby

6.00 – 6.30PM – Feed baby solid food. Feed me some solid food too

6.30 – 7.00 -Baby plays some more.

7.00 – 7.30 – Baby gets a oil massage, bath, lotion massage. Bottle.

7.30-7.45 – Read book, baby sleeps

8.00 – 8.30 – Write blog posts

8.30 – 9.30 – Work on photos / craft.

9.30 – 10.00 – Shower and sleep.

And that would be my ideal weekday routine. The reality of what I really do now?Why, that would be another blog post for some other day wouldn’t it?
