5:20 a.m.- First alarm

5:30- Second alarm

5:35- Third alarm

5:40- Finally, I push off the covers and force myself from the bed. I carrel both dogs into the bathroom with me, change, do my makeup and hair, and try to figure out if my contacts will cooperate for the whole day or if I should pack along glasses.

Pig
Pre
6:00- I take the dogs outside to potty. Yes, potty is their command word. At six in the morning, you can find me calling, “Go potty, Piggy. Go potty, Pre.”

6:25- Off I go to work! Thank heavens for coffee, audiobooks and music or I wouldn’t make it through the next hour without falling back asleep.

7:30- I am a Client Services Administrator, but let’s just call it what it is, I’m a secretary. The first half hour is spent making four pots of coffee and getting the building ready.

My purdy desk
8:00- My smiley, happy face gets stuck in place and the phone system turns on. A switchboard isn’t as hard to manage as one might expect and I spend the day repeating the phrase, “Good morning, how may I help you?” at least five hundred times.

1:00- The best part of my day is my lunch break when I take a 40 minute walk *happy sigh*

My view for the day
2:00- Back to the phones and sitting on my butt. I really can’t complain about my job. As long as I answer the phones and keep the clients happy, I have time to work on my writing. I am beyond thankful for that. Plus, everyone in my building is amazing.

5:00- Back in the car for the hour fifteen drive home.

6:15- Hooome! I walk in the door to two crazy dogs and my boyfriend. It usually takes about thirty seconds for me to realize that yes, I do still live in a beyond messy and disorganized house and that yes, I still really don’t want to clean. That’s what Saturdays are for, right??
My messy kitchen
7:00- I attempt to work out. Unfortunately, I do a better a better job thinking about working out than actually following through. It usually only happens three days during the week (including weekends) and normally can be attributed to Cale’s nagging. Huzzah for supportive boyfriends. The next couple hours are spent with my family, relaxing before bed.

9:30- Hopefully I'm ready for bed. Hopefully. I need my beauty sleep :)
