Hey all. I haven’t had a whole lot of material to write about lately. Here’s a day in the life of Erica, in particular this past Friday.
8am – Woke up. I don’t have work today so I got to sleep in! Alex is working an early day (he usually works second shift) so he’ll be going into work this morning. Boosh jumps in the bed with us and we play with him for a bit until Alex gets up and gets ready for work.
8:45am – I’m out of bed. Time to shower and get ready for the day. Alex leaves for work.
9:20am – out the door for the day. First stop: DMV! (BOO) My license is up for renewal.
9:45am – Arrived at the DMV. I grab my number. I’m number 72, they are still somewhere in the 40’s. Whatever. I check my emails while I wait.
10:40am – OUT! With my new (and for the first time, brunette) license in hand! To the grocery store.
10:50am – at the store. I don’t need a ton of stuff. I just stock up on produce and coffee creamer for Alex. I am in and out of the store in less than 30 minutes, which is probably my record.
11:35am – Home. I put the groceries away and eat some lunch. Boosh follows me around for a bit but goes to sleep on his perch when I try to play with him. Loser. I love him. <3
12:25pm – I decide to book a wine class for Alex and I for the weekend. We bought a Groupon months ago for the place around the corner and we still haven’t used it. I book our class and daydream for a moment about yummy wine. Then I decide my toilet needs a deep cleaning, and the weeds in my garden need to be pulled.
1PM – Boosh starts following me around and meowing excessively and I can tell he needs something to do. I spray his perch with some catnip which mellows him out a bit. We play with the laser and he fails miserably at catching the red dot. Then we snuggle on the couch and have TV time.
2PM – More emails. Schedule some bill payments. Briefly consider looking at wedding stuff but I just can’t get myself interested in doing this. Instead I opt to mop my kitchen and scrub the tile in my bathroom. See? I do housework!
5PM – Alex is home. We start to figure out what we want for dinner. I cooked yesterday so we settle on ordering out tonight.
5:30PM – We’re having an issue with our phones!! For some reason we can’t make calls in this area code, which results in not being able to order from our usual Chinese place. Uncool! I call the phone company. Alex finds another Chinese place in town with a website that you can order delivery from.
7:30PM – Ate dinner. Now we find a movie to watch. It’s on regular cable so there’s a million commercial breaks. Oh well. It’ll do.
10:30PM – I can barely keep my eyes open. I go lay down in bed and listen to my daily in this case nightly) devotional. Read a Bible chapter. Then it’s lights out!
