It is Thursday and my weekend is starting as soon as I leave the office. Working 80% has its advantages: I can spend more time with Chloe-Sofia and work on the blog while she sleeps. Although that is proving more and more difficult since she naps only once a day now. And as I am most of the time tired, I take a nap with her.
That is why I started publishing articles only twice a week. I am tired. I don’t have the energy to publish three times a week anymore. Fall got to me like never before. I even started taking food supplements, add Spirulina in my morning smoothie and snack on Vitamin B, Magnesium and Chrome. The algae taste bad but it works wonders. I decided to publish the interviews only twice a month so that I can rest in the evenings when I come home from the office.
The other day one of my friends and a fellow blogger, Lizzie, published an article about a day as a blogger. Sometimes people say that they admire how I do it all. Well, most of the time I am just doing what is right in front of me and the rest has to wait. So if you wonder how a day in a life of a working mom/lifestyle blogger/wife looks like, here it is:
A Day In A Life Of A Lifestyle Blogger:
6 AM: Wake up. Prepare morning milk for Chloe-Sofia (Alex and I alternate). She usually falls asleep after she finishes her bottle.
6:15 -6:30 AM: Take a shower. Clean, moisturize and put a serum on my face. I am really big on serums lately.
6:30 AM: Wake up Alex (if he still sleeps). Dress up Chloe-Sofia, clean her face, nose (that is always a big fight as she hates when we clean her nose with a physiological serum).
6:45 AM: Prepare my green smoothie. Get dressed and put on my makeup.
7 AM: Trying to put a jacket on Chloe-Sofia and close her in the stroller. Read: chasing her up and down the house as she thinks that is fun running away.
7:15 AM: Leaving Chloe-Sofia in daycare. It is 5 minutes walk from our house so it is very convenient.
7:20 AM: Alex picks me up in front of the daycare and we drove to our favorite coffee place in neighboring village. I have my morning soy cappuccino and he gets croissants.
7:39 AM: Alex drives to his office while I take a train. The train stop is 10 minutes from my office and I like to walk a bit in the morning.
5:20 PM: Leave work to catch the train back home.
6 PM: Pick up Chloe-Sofia from daycare.
6:20 PM: Running around the house trying to take off her jacket, undress her a put her in the bathtub.
7 PM: Chloe-Sofia watches 2-3 of her favorite songs on TV. Right now is Coco Câline from Julian Doré and Chocolate from Lartiste.
7-8 PM: Alex cooks dinner. We all eat.
8 PM: Chloe-Sofia has her night bottle and goes to bed.
8-10 PM: I spend some time with Alex and work on my blog.
10 PM: Going to bed.
How does your day look like?
