One bizarre thing about me; I love Mondays! Yes indeed, I love them! Mondays are my blogging day; I pack myself some snacks, coffee, and water, and head off to the library, or a coffee shop (in which case I don't pack any coffee). Some days I'll just stay at home and set up at the table. On average, I spend anywhere from six to eight hours at my location (some people close down bars, I close down libraries and coffee shops!). Yes, blogging is very time consuming! I not only write and publish a blog post, but that's just the beginning of it! After I hit publish, I need to promote that article on four different social media platforms, and then make and send out a campaign for my mailing list (subscribe to it below)! I also answer emails from people asking about advertising rates and guest posts. On Mondays I also schedule my facebook, shop facebook, blog facebook, twitter, and P.A.T.H.S facebooks to be posted throughout the week. This step takes a while, but it really saves me time in the long run, so I don't have to get on my laptop every day to post things!
Tuesdays are also wonderful, because I get to do whatever I want! In the morning I make myself some tea or coffee, and sit and relax with that, and talk to whoever happens to be at home at that moment. The rest of the day is filled with; finishing up any blogging stuff I didn't complete the day before, crafting, replying to messages and filling any orders from my Fiverr or Etsy pages, reading books, taking baths, and playing with the puppies! My husband's schedule can vary, but sometimes he gets off Tuesdays, so we get to spend time together! We run errands, watch a movie at the Dollar Theater, go dancing, play video games, and just enjoy each others' company!
At night I make a meal for the family. Since there is currently seven people living in the house, I need to make a lot of food!
Wednesdays are tiring, but good days! Wednesdays are my "I'm a Domestic 50's Housewife Goddess" day (that's just my way of saying that I clean a lot!).
I have a once a week housecleaning job, and I do that Wednesday mornings. It's nice because it's about 3 minutes from my house, and it only takes me about 3 hours. Once I get home, I clean both bathrooms top to bottom, clean and sweep our bedroom, and go through and organize any papers or piles of anything laying around that need organized. I also do our laundry, which takes a little more time, because we don't use a dryer. So after the clothes are washed, I hang the t-shirts up in the laundry room, the pants and shorts outside on the line, and all the socks and underwear on the drying racks outside. I usually also bring in all of my Mom's laundry from the previous day and fold those for her. After everything is dried, I fold them and put them away. I also hand wash all of my underwear that day, do a hair mask, and take a long hot shower.
I leave at 10:00 Thursday morning to go to my waitressing job. Since it's a weekday morning shift, I'm only there until two, or three at the latest. Once I'm done, I do grocery shopping, and run any errands that need done. I get home about 5:00, then hang out with my family and the dogs the rest of the day.
Friday morning I sleep in, only get out of bed to get a cup of coffee, then spend the next four hours in my pajamas, in bed, drinking coffee and watching Netflix. At 3:00 I leave, get food at work, then work a very busy, non-stop shift at Roosters (my waitressing job). I get home at about midnight, then pass out.
Saturday morning I wake up at 9:30, leave for work at 10, and get home at 5:00. The rest of the day I get to do "normal" weekend stuff; hang out with friends, and hang out with my husband! Yay!
Sunday mornings we usually go to church with my parents, then out to eat afterwards with the entire family. Once we get home, I instantly change into pajamas, and it's relax mode for the rest of the day! Nick can't sit still for that long, so he does errands or gets stuff done that he didn't have time for during the week. So I lay in bed watching Netflix, relaxing, and loving life! Once Nick gets home we play video games and/or watch a couple episodes of whatever t.v show we're currently sucked into! Then we go to sleep.
The next morning I wake up, and I get to do it all over again! Yay!
*What about you? What does your week look like? Do you love it? If not, what can you do to change that?!*
Peace Love and a Week in My Life
