Day in the Life, June 1, 2015 and July 1, 2015

I know, I know, I fell off the blogging wagon again....but in my defense, I did just quit my job and open my own business, so things have been a little crazy around here.  I was doing pretty well with the Blog Everyday in May challenge, but then I came to my senses and realized that since my last day at a real job was at the end of May, I needed to prioritize my time towards getting everything ready and stuff.  June was totally frenzied, but I might be finally settling in now that July is here.  There's still a TON of things to do for my business, but the dust is settling.

June 1st was my first real day in business at my new place.  I had seen one client at the end of May, but June 1st I actually had 2 clients, TWO CLIENTS!!!  I think I was nervous about that day because I was up on my own (without an alarm) at just before 7am.  #weird  Here's my day, and if you want to follow along next month in real time, head on over to Instagram and follow me there!!!

July 1st snuck up on me (like most months do).  I had a repeat of #noblogmarch in June, but this time it was because I was so stupid busy getting everything started with my new business (holy shit, I'm my own boss - still so surreal).  July 1st was also a work day for me, but I only had one client, but this time I was seeing the client at their house instead of at my office.  It was a busy day.

7am
again, up at 7 on my own
this is my view from my bed

8am

9am

My appointment was at 7pm, and it would've been totally weird to take a picture of my client's house just to represent the hour I was working....so not even a #latergram of what I was doing at 7.

8pm
loaded up and headed home
9pm
somebody missed Mommy
10pm
dinner time
yes, we sometimes eat dinner at 10pm

Jack was in bed by 11 and I fell asleep in his bed with him.  Such a long day!!!  Maybe I'll finally start getting back into the swing of things and start blogging again, again.......again (how many times can I say that???)  Anyway, I hope ya'll had a great June and let's all have an awesome July!

Sunday Confessions

The United States of Becky

1.  I'm pretty sure I've eaten my weight in potatoes this weekend.  I know this sounds like I'm exaggerating, but I don't think I am.  I'm at my Mom's and she survives on potatoes, bacon, coffee, and nicotine - when in Rome, right - well, except for the nicotine.  I guess it's a good thing that I love potatoes almost as much as she does.

2.  I play this GPS based game on my smartphone, Ingress, and I'm rather obsessed with it.  So much so that when I didn't achieve a goal in the game today because of my own oversight it pretty much ruined the rest of my day.  So pissed.  Seriously.  Ruined most of my day.

3.  I cannot wait for Mad Max:  Fury Road to come out in theatres.  I guess this isn't really a confession, but I'm just so damn excited!!!  Also, Tom Hardy is pretty easy on the eyes, so there's that.

4.  Most parents complain about the children's show, Caillou, but I really love it and think it's good for Jack to watch.  It teaches good lessons and I think it's paced well for small children.  However, I can't stand Thomas the Train.  The trains are catty and mean to each other and if they don't serve a purpose then they're useless.  I've never seen a decent lesson from that show and the merchandise is stupid expensive. I wish it was a better show because Jack loves trains.  At least he's not obsessed with the show.

5.  I hope I can find the motivation and drive to work extra hard the next two weeks to get our garage apartment ready enough to see clients there once I'm officially self employed.  I know I won't get everything finished that I want to do to the space, so I'm trying to make a list of the absolute minimum of things I need to do to get ready.  I see little sleep and much coffee in my immediate future.

Day in the Life, May 1, 2015

Time for another installment in my Day in the Life series.  I waited to get this post written because Rosalilium's Blog Every Day in May schedule includes a day in the life prompt, so I figured I'd wait till it came around to get this posted.  This first of the month was a busy day, but not at work.  I had the day off and made plans to hang out with my BFF, Daniel.  He had to work a half day, so Jack and I went to pick him up in the afternoon after a leisurely morning.

As always, I took my pictures on my iPhone using Instagram and if you're not following me already, you totally should, lol.  I also don't plan anything special or out of the ordinary - I just document one day per month with whatever I happen to have going on.

So that was our super busy and fun start to May.  I feel really good about this month, and I can't wait to see what everyone's day in the life posts are.
