A Week in the Life - Day Six & Seven

It's Friday!

I figured Friday and Saturday would be late b/c I try not to get on the computer too much on the weekend.  (Especially since I must stare at it all week long.)

7:00-11:00 - The same as every other day.  Jax goes to Mammaw's on Fridays.  I go to work until lunchtime.
11:15-1:15ish - Go to lunch with Mammaw.  This is a standing date we have every week.  We went to El Chicos this Friday.
1:15-4:00 - I take Jax back to work with me and attempt to work for the rest of the day.  :)
4:00-  Mom came over & spent the night with us.  Dustie didn't get home till late so the grilled burgers we had planned to have turned into inside "griddled" burgers!  They were pretty good, but I sure did miss that charcoal flavor.  We watched movies & hung out the rest of the night & actuall went to bed kinda early.


8:30 - Jax let us sleep in a little bit.  My body still wanted to get up early, but I made myself stay in bed until he woke up.  We get dressed & ready for a fun day!
9:30-5:00 - Jax, Mom & I drive up to Texarkana to SHOP!  We went to BJAXX & the other Beehive stores there.  I got a few pieces of jewelry, some cute new Yellow Boxes & Jax got some new rain boots, rain coat & umbrella  (SO cute!).  Then, we went to a few other stores (including Target!:))  We ate lunch at Ghengis Grill there-that was a bunch of fun.  We stopped in Fauke on our way home to go by the Monster Mart & get Monster t-shirts & yummy sweet tea.  We spent all day in Arkansas-it was great!
5:00 - Mimi went home.  We relaxed and had a fun night at home & got ready for the next day.

A Week in the Life - Day Five

I love Thursdays b/c I feel like it's the weekend!  I still have to work on Friday, but I just feel like that's part of the weekend.  I do realize I have a great job with so much freedom.  I'm so thankful!

7:00-9:00 - Same exact thing as every other day.  I'm such a routine-oriented person!
9:00-4:00 - Thursdays are basically identical to Tuesdays.  I TRY to work, while hanging out with Jax & keeping him entertained.  This Thursday we watched Cars & read books & colored in a Mickey Mouse coloring book.  We ate brunch instead of b-fast & lunch (b/c we knew we would have a big dinner).  We had a ham & cheese croissant and some blueberry biscuits.  YUM!  Later, Jax had a banana for a snack.
4:00-5:00 - Same as always.  Drive home.  Jax sleeps.  I listen to a book-I really love my drive time!
5:00-5:15 - We run around like crazy people-getting our swimsuits on & grabbing towels, sunblock & mosquito repellant.
5:15-9:15 - We go to dinner at church friends/family's house.  They fried fish, french fries, okra & the BEST hush puppies ever!  Then, we had homemade chocolate ice cream!  Life is GOOD!  After that, we just hung out and visited.  It was a very fun, relaxing night.  (We did not get to swim though...we had a random storm all night.  It hasn't rained in FOREVER in our area-leave it to us to end the drought by planning a swim night!  HA!)
9:15 - We go home & go to bed!  (can I get an AMEN!?!)

A Week in the Life - Day Four

Wednesdays are always FULL and fun!

7:00-8:00 - Up & at em, getting everyone ready and out the door.
8:00-9:00 - Same as Monday & Tuesday, drive to Shreveport, rock out to the radio morning show while Jax munches & sleeps.
9:00-3:00 - This is the only day that Mammaw keeps Jax all day long.  I'm able to have a great Quiet Time, Bible Study, work on my book & get tons of Air Zone work done (billing, filing, paying bills, checking email, buying/ordering supplies, etc.).
3:00 - Go pick Jax up from Mammaw's.  At this time, I get Jax bathed/cleaned up so that we can go straight to church from Shreveport, but when I picked him up he had a low grade fever & runny nose, so I decided to keep him home.  (I'm thinking he's just getting his 2 year molars in, b/c he felt fine.)  My Dad loves for me to pick him up early if he's home, so that he can love on him.  Mom hurries home to get some sugar before we leave.
4:00-5:00 - Drive to Vivian.  Jax slept the whole way.  I listened to the Weird, by Craig Groeschel.  Awesome!  Convicting!
5:00-7:45 - Jax slept & I got a bunch of housework done & watched 19 Kids & Counting. :)
7:45 - Dad gets home from church, we have supper & just hang out until time to go to bed!
