A Wednesday In the Life

I have always wanted to tell you, or show you rather, what  my days look like, one hour at a time.  My days are always different because of my class schedule.  Sometimes I am lecturing in the morning and sometimes I’m lecturing at 9 pm, so things shift from day to day, and no 2 days are the same within a week.  But I think if I just highlight one particular day you will get the idea of what I’m doing on a daily basis.  So this is what a typical Wednesday looks like for me:
6:00 AM
I’ve already been up for about an hour, but I’ve been in bed snuggling with the puppies and checking my email.  Really I’m just praying for another snow day.6 am
7:00 AM
I don’t normally have pancakes for breakfast but these were left over from the snowday yesterday.  So pancakes it is, with my morning tea and devotion time.7 am
8:00 AM
I’m wrapped up pretty warm this morning and about to walk out the door for my morning commute; Wednesdays only take me about 20 minutes to get to work.  Notice, I’m rockin’ a topsy-tail this morning ;-)8 am
9:00 AM
I’m at work chugging the homemade fruit smoothie I brought from home while I check emails.  Today I’m having bananas, strawberry, and soy milk.9 am
10:00 AM
I only have one lecture on Wednesdays, Experimental Psychology.  I’m here before the students so that I can set up the projector for class.  Time to mold some minds!10 am
11:00 AM
The students are working on an activity while I take attendance.  I don’t normally sit to lecture, but because of my pelvic rest, I do sit to lecture now and this is my trusty chair.11 am
12:00 PM
Class is over and I’m starving.  This is what I have for lunch everyday: tomato and basil hummus with cucumbers and tomatoes, tomatoes and cottage cheese, and an apple with string cheese.  I also usually have peanut butter and crackers but I ate those before I took the picture (oops!).12 pm
1:00 PM
Time to check more emails, do some paperwork around the office, and prep for classes tomorrow.1 pm
2:00 PM
To miss traffic, I left work a little bit earlier than I normally would so that I could drop the Mr.'s shoes off at the hospital.  This is their 3rd visit, so hopefully the third time is a charm.  This is one of the awesome things about my job: having a flexible schedule where I can run these types of quick errands during the week.2 pm
3:00 PM
We've got smallgroup tonight, and it's our week to lead discussion, so I've got to read our chapter! Tonight we're talking about Chapter 7: The Sacred History of Our Marriage.  This is an awesome book to read with your spouse; I highly recommend it!3 pm
4:00 PM
Taking notes and formulating discussion questions for this evening.4 pm
5:00 PM
I have a few minutes before I need to start dinner so I'm doing a little bit of blog writing and reading; I gotta squeeze it in when I can :-)5 pm
6:00 PM
Pulling left-over spaghetti out of the fridge for dinner tonight before smallgroup.  The Mr. isn’t home yet, so we need something that we can have fast before running out the door.  I always cook a big meal on Tuesdays so that we can have those leftovers on Wednesdays before church.6 pm
7:00 PM
At church and we need some coffee if we’re going to make it through the evening.7 pm
8:00 PM
We had smallgroup and prayer time (no pictures during this time obviously), but here is my prayer journal that I use for smallgroup.8 pm
9:00 PM
We just got home and the high heels finally came off.  My tootsies are being swaddled in my house shoes.9 pm
10:00 PM
I have a feeling I’m about to pass out on the couch, so I better get this last picture for you before the day is officially completed :-)10 pm
Well that is a typical Wednesday for me.  Though I think I should probably do this everyday of the week so that you could see how each day is so vastly different  lol
Happy Hump Day all!!!

This morning I’m linking up with Meg and Stephanie, so come join the hourly fun :-)Link Up Logo

You fit so much into your day and I am shocked there are no puppy pics!

And do you really eat the same lunch every day? I am loving these posts and seeing all the little elements of people's lives!

Mia Eliza said...

I'm exhausted just by reading this lol. And those pancakes? I'm desperately cravings some now. I guess it'll be brinner for tonight!

This was a fun post to read! I love hearing the details of other people's days, looking at what they have in their purse, seeing what they keep in their pantry/fridge...basically I'm nosy :) It sounds like you have a full day! Good thing you are getting good rest for the little man!! :)

Samantha Horseman said...

I love this post idea. Your day seems pretty full! I would love to do this but my boss sometimes reads my blog so I don't feel comfortable posting about work...

XO Samantha

First off I love your lunch!! And how fun to have no two days the same. I bet that makes it easier through the week in the sense that you're never bored! Where's your nap though?!?!?!

Lauren W said...
