week in the life 2017 : friday

November 11, 2017

5:05 AM // I get out of bed, unwillingly, but I do it. Make my regular breakfast and listen to the pray-as-you-go podcast. 5:15 AM // Eat breakfast in my reading chair, and do my daily Bible reading. Then I check Instagram for about ten minutes, and look for a package that was supposed to be delivered. Get really bummed because I can’t find it and I worry that it was stolen. 6:10 AM // Sign Meredith’s school papers and pack her lunch. 6:25 AM // Shower, dress, and makeup. 6:55 AM // The kids start to wake up because I let the cats in the room and they are being crawled on. They are sleepy today! Liam gets out…

week in the life 2017 : thursday

November 10, 2017

5:00 AM // Since I went to bed so early last night it is easy for me to wake up with my alarm today! The kids are sleeping soundly and I go straight to my Bible reading. I also skim the day’s Magnificat entry. For the first time all week I feel rested and I don’t have a headache. 5:50 AM // I make myself breakfast and pack Meredith’s lunch. 6:07 AM // I eat at the table, then move back to my chair. I was going to read, but Liam comes out to cuddle. He is very interested in the cover of my book and says he wants to “look for baby Jesus.” Meredith comes out shortly, so she…

week in the life 2017 : wednesday

November 9, 2017

3:18 AM // I wake up because my head hurts. Ughhh. I have had this same headache for three days now! I’m able to get back to sleep though. 5:00 AM // My alarm goes off but I turn it off. I’m not feeling it today. 5:11 AM // Liam wakes up and asks me what day it is. He always wants to know that lately. Thankfully he goes right back to sleep. 5:25 AM // I drag myself out of bed. I sit down to my Bible reading, but I doze off a few times. Eventually I complete it, but I probably should have made coffee first. 6:00 AM // Make my breakfast and listen to the pray-as-you-go podcast….

week in the life 2017 : tuesday

November 8, 2017

5: 00 AM // My alarm goes off and I get up immediately. I have been restless for awhile because I have a headache, so it’s not hard. Although I try not to overmedicate myself, there are some headaches I just need help with so I take some ibuprofen. I know that if I sit down to do Bible reading right away I won’t be able to focus, so instead I make breakfast and coffee while listening to the pray-as-you-go podcast. 5:15 AM // I sit down to eat my breakfast and do my daily Bible reading and say a few prayers. 5:46 AM // Read a canto of Dante’s Inferno. 6:00 AM // I tidy up the kitchen and…

week in the life 2017 : monday

November 7, 2017

Welcome to a week in my life! This is a yearly project that I haven’t done in two years (oops) and I’m excited to bring back. This is a fairly normal week for our family with a good mix of things going on. I am personally fascinated by other people’s day-to-day lives, so I hope you enjoy this peek into mine! 5:10 AM // I wanted to get up by myself, but Liam is awake too. We went to bed early last night because we had an exhausting weekend and the time just changed, so I’m not surprised that he’s up. We go sit in my chair and I begin my Bible reading. Since June I have been following a…
