Prompts for WEEK THREE (Wednesday, January 22):
1. A typical day in my life…
It’s funny I go through several months of a routine, and then something changes and I have to find a new routine, and a new typical day. My new puppy, Shakira has thrown a huge wrench (but a wonderful one) into my typical day. As we are in the early stages of learning to “go potty” outside my typical day revolves around taking her out constantly and is settling in to something like this:
Wake up to her stirring around 6am (yippee, not 4:00 or 5:00 as it was the first two weeks!). Immediately throw on some sweats, carry her downstairs, put on her harness, her coat (it’s cold out in NH!), her leash, hold her and slip into my coat, gloves and boots and go outside. Luckily she does her business quickly. Then we come inside and I feed her. She nibbles, plays a little, goes outside again, then goes to sleep for several hours. Phew, now I eat breakfast, do my Sudoku puzzle (or if it is early in the week, continue to work on Sunday’s crossword puzzle). Next, upstairs to my computer to check email, Facebook, etc. and start working (I work from home).
Around lunchtime, Shakira wakes up. We do the outside routine again. I have some lunch and play with her a bit, take her out again, then back upstairs to work while she plays with her toys and eventually naps again.
Evening is pretty much the same. Cook something yummy for dinner, eat, clean up, play with the doggie, take her out (multiple times), read or watch TV, and bed around 10 or 11. Sometimes, I go out for dinner with friends and she stays in her playpen in the kitchen. When I get home she is sooo excited to see me. We play until one of us is exhausted, then off to bed!
Now hopefully I will be able to add running or going to the gym or yoga back into my routine sometime SOON!
Hmm, I have a Not to Do bucket list. On it are things like skydiving. I’m adventurous, but I’m not into extreme anything, so you won’t see me jumping out of an airplane, para-sailing, hang-gliding, bungee jumping, ice climbing or anything like that! I do run, and I have run a few half marathons, but I have no intention of ever training for or running a full marathon. You also won’t see me in Times Square on New Year’s Eve or at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (unless I meet up with someone with a penthouse along the parade route!)
3. It’s really unattractive when a guy/girl…
Another thing I find beyond unattractive and luckily this doesn’t seem to be in vogue anymore is when a girl’s thong strap shows above her pants. To me, these are fashion don’ts! — tacky, skanky and class-less!
4. If I could buy one thing right now, it would be…
Oh this is hard right after Christmas. I got the things I wanted for Christmas (I-pod, jambox) and then some other great things (clothes and a puppy!) so it is tough to come up with something I want to buy…but i would like these Frye boots!
5. I have high expectations for…
My kids! They are strong, determined go-getters and I know they will succeed in life. By succeed, I mean that they will be happy and productive in their endeavors, and love and be loved by their family and friends.
