Week In The Life Day 5 Friday

May 15, 2020

I am having so much fun with Week In The Life this year. I love the everyday lens that Ali Edwards has this year. It creates a focus for the words and a lens through which to look at my life when I am taking the photos. So here's today through the lens of "Some & Most".

Most days I have a single cup of coffee first thing in the morning. And today was no different. Love the light in this little corner of the kitchen. Also love the Harry and David coffee cup.

Some days I don't even see the dryer that's been sitting in my upstairs hallway for two years. Why you ask do I have a dryer in my upstairs hallway? Well, when we moved in, we thought our house had a gas dryer hook up, but alas, no it didn't. So my gas dryer got relegated to the upstairs hallway, and I got a new cheapie that's electric.

Most weeks on Friday and Saturday, I do most of the laundry. I did most of it this morning as you can tell by the full basket. Now lets see how long this takes to get folded... 

Most days I look in the mirror and see this face and see age starting to show up. Some days I see fatigue and pain that a has become a part of everyday life. Most days I see a sadness that will not lift. Some days I see the girl from elementary school that had such a lighthearted outlook and wonder where she got lost along the way of life. Some days I see a girl that's afraid of her own shadow. Most days I just see a girl with a big dream and a heart full of love whose life didn't quite turn out like she wanted and sometimes that just makes her incredibly sad.

Some days, like today, I'm so hungry in the middle of the morning that I have to get a snack. Today I chose a healthy one, trail mix. I don't always but today was a good choice snack day.

Most days I get at least some homework done. And today was no different. Two hours today of watching videos for my Practice Resource module. Most days I LOVE school and learning.

Most days this guy is running around the house with no shirt on. Why you ask? Because he is always hot.

Most days I take a ton of supplements. I take a few for digestion because that got all screwed up with years of no fat eating and antibiotic use. I take a supplement for pain because no pain meds or ibuprofen for me if I can help it. I take a fatty acid supplement.  I take Vit D, E, and a probiotic. And I take magnesium (a frequent vitamin deficiency). I rotate through others, but those are the main ones. This is a little jar on the counter that holds my dinner ones. I have a whole other set for breakfast and lunch. 


Most days we all sit down to eat lunch together and today was no different. Usually this is what it looks like too. Kevin on his computer. Kyle watching Call of Duty videos. And me reading a book.

Some days Kevin and I run errands together. Today he wanted me to go look at a scratch and dent refrigerator at Home Depot to go in the garage. It didn't work though because it wasn't just scratch and dent, it was used. Ick.

Some days, not many, we go talk to a realtor about acreage for sale in the area. Our yard is small and not very private right now. And we might get a house with more land. Who knows. I know how my husband works with these kinds of things. We could be looking for five years. Ha.

Some days I go to the grocery store. Most weeks I try to go on Tuesday because that's the day I get out of work early. This week I went on Friday.

Some days I talk to family. Today happened to be Dad. So frustrated with him and that he's stuck. And that's all I'll say on here about that. Private stuff that is.

Most days I do some type of scrapbooking, card making, or just looking at ideas and others' posts.

Most days I cook something pretty healthy with lots of veggies and protein. This is one of my favorites that consists of bok choy, mushrooms, carrots, celery, onion and chicken. good.

Some days we have friends over for Mexican food (even after I cooked the delish chicken soup) and Texas margaritas.

Most days I like a lot of salt and often get it from chips, not the healthiest snack and trying to find alternatives that are healthier.

Some days we eat Mexican and enjoy conversation about funny expressions Kevin says. Such as "Katie bar the door" or "In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king" or "Drip-feed" which others often butcher when trying to repeat.

Some days we sit by the new fire pit and listen to good music...including Billy Joel, of course. 

Some days I get frustrated with myself for doing things I know I shouldn't do. I keep repeating those behaviors even though I know better. And that's frustrating. Some days I stand up for myself, but most days I don't. What's the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Change the behaviors and the outcome will change.

Thanks for being a part of the WITL community. I am thankful for you. Have a great day.
