You know I love the Friday Five Link up.. Always a good topic, a fun to see what other like minded people are thinking on the same topic too and to be honest an easy way to decide what to blog about:) Thank you Eat, Pray, Run DC, Mar on the Run, and You Signed Up for What? for hosting the Friday Five link-up!
1. I will say if I had written this post just a month ago, it would have been very different and I think in a few months it will evolve as my puppy gets older. For now though, a bulk of my day is training, playing, and socializing Finn. Like having a baby, you do forget how much time a new puppy will take up in your day until you have one. It is worth it, but I will be happy when we are past some of the “training.” Now that he’s a few weeks older, it is getting easier as he is sleeping better at night for the most part. I could do without the 4:00 am outside trip though. Soon. This is not to say that I am not enjoying him a 100%. My kids think that my day is spent taking pictures of the puppy which is somewhat accurate:)
2. I start off each weekday morning making first coffee for me and then waffles for the boys before school. I admit that I take weekends off from this take primarily because teenage boys do not wake up for breakfast unless they are eating it for lunch. Some people tease me about making homemade waffles every morning, but I’ve been doing it for so long it really only takes 5 minutes to whip up the batter and my waffle iron makes four waffles at a time. Plus I started making waffles when I realized that we were going through a box of waffles every two days. Double plus, I know and and can pronounce all the ingredients in my waffles (2 cups flour, 4 tsp baking powder, 3 tsp sugar, tsp extract, 1 3/4 cup milk, 2 eggs, and 1/2 cup oil – mix dry, add milk, add eggs and extract, add oil. Viola. To change it up add different extracts or cinnamon).
3. Most days I do try to get a run or some form of exercise in. This used to be right after school drop off. Now days, it is scheduled around puppies nap time as I don’t like to keep him in his crate too much.
4. Then there is the exciting household chores that magically get done when the children are gone. Fun things like laundry, grocery shopping, and cleaning. I know you are super jealous and can totally relate!
5. Social Media. – I admit it and you can too:)
These are just five in the many things that make up my day.
