A Week in our Life: Monday

Many are familiar with Ali Edward's projects, including A Week in the Life, which started today.  Since I already take a picture everyday, I thought it would be fun to play along with this to capture more words to go with those pictures and put it in a mini album next week.  So here was my average day....

Up at 7:15.  Totally dragging.  Not untypical for a Monday!  Showered, dressed, played with the doggie.... dash out the door to work.  A million kids walking to school.... again normal.  Cloudy and looking foggy.  Work is busy.  Happy to have my favorite Odwalla Chocolate Protein Monster for breakfast (thanks Brian!!).  Payroll in today... budgeting to finish calculating and entering.  Lots of people calling.  Lots to get done.  Finally take a lunch break at as the clock is nearing 3 pm.  Run home, check mail.... same as usual routine, but today my new camera lens showed up!  As did a belated Christmas ornament for Annie's baby (I couldn't choose which one at Christmas... finally forced myself to choose while ordering camera lens on Amazon last week!).  Also got a box of new goodies to play with from Flamingo Scraps.  Made a spinach, avocado, cheddar and bacon on wheat sandwich for lunch.  The bacon was a bonus leftover from breakfast Brian made yesterday morning!  Played with the doggie, called and talked to Susan on the phone.  Headed back to work.  More budget, more work.  Got the desk tidied back up.  Hate trying to work when everything is chaotic and I'm wasting time trying to find things.  Actually leave on time from work today.  Brian is already home from working in Felton today.  He's annoyed with having to re-file his unemployment papers.  The intermittent work is driving him nuts!  I can't wait for the economy to fully recover.  I made this scrapbook layout:


But as soon as I was done with the layout and before I blogged, I made dinner.  Chicken Stirfry Lettuce Wraps.  YUM.  And watched CSI Miami from last week with Brian.  Fed the dog.  Played with the dog again (lucky doggie!).  Went back to the computer.  Caught up on my e-mails.  On facebook.  On scrapbook.com.  Finished my blog post and posted it.  Ordering stuff for trip next week.  Now writing this and heading to to bed in a few minutes.

I felt like it was an ordinary day for me.  Highlight was definitely this series of text messages from Brian:

B: "I got good news"
B: "I love you"
Me: "I love you too :) you're so cute!"
B:  "Matter of fact that should be considered 'GREAT NEWS!' its not new news but old news but good news.  News you already knew.  Know what I mean?"

I love that crazy cute guy I'm married to! :)  Sorry there's no other pictures.  Too sleepy right now to download them!  Thanks for reading if you made it this far! :)

Are you playing along with this project?  If so, I'd love to see what you are doing!!
