A Day In The Life

"Woke up, got out of bed, dragged a comb across my head...."
-The Beatles
What a day.
When I meet people, they ask "what do you do?" How do I answer that? I mean, I do a lot of things, you know? I thought I'd bring a camera along to document my day. So here it is: A Day In The Life
This is the most beautiful sight to me each morning
I make my child a healthy GF/CF breakfast
Then I drop her off at school....
I run to grab a coffee (my second of the morning) with a girlfriend
I rush to a Friendship Circle lunch meeting
Luckily it was at the new Jerusalem Pizza at the JCC so I could just run downstairs to the preschool to pick up my girl
We head home so I can make her lunch (grilled cheese sandwich), which I burned...
My secret weapon arrives. Her name is Beth and she keeps my house clean
Next up: take Little Bird to Occupational Therapy
Her speech therapist cancelled today, so I had an hour or so to take my bird to a play date at a friend's house
Home for one hour. In that time, I drink my third and last cup of coffee for the day, boil manicotti noodles and stuff them with ricotta and mozzarella cheeses. Then I throw Little Bird into a bath.
We head out the door to a rally
Home to throw the manicotti in the oven, serve it to my husband, swallow a few bites and then...
Out the door to the annual Jewish Federation meeting. I spent much of it texting and emailing. I had to leave early because there was one more stop to make.
My friends' son turned three and had an Upsherin, so I headed over to the party and snipped a lock of his hair
Finally, I made it home and into my cozy slippers. And tomorrow is another adventure.
All in all, a good day. There was only one shitty part of my day.
But that's another story for another day.

Wow! You put me to shame. But I would be a basket case if I kept that schedule.

Here's an interesting fact about me (maybe it's not really that interesting). Growing up in small town Idaho, it wasn't a very culturally diverse place. I was 29 before I made my first Jewish friend. I'm happy to make another at the age of 31. :) I've been an absentee blogger for a while and I have a lot of reading to do to catch up on your adventures in Israel.
