A Day In The Life


I am all about routines, schedules, planning.


 

I’m Camille and I’m a calendarholic.
 
I enjoy my own routine so much, and I enjoy learning about other people’s routines too. I always love reading "day in the life" posts. For now we are kid-less and our routine is simple and focused around us. Some day I’m going to re-read this post and laugh at {and envy} myself.
 
My husband is a Project Engineer which means he is on construction time and has to be out of the house before the sun comes up. He is so disciplined. It’s a quality that I really admire and wish I had more of.
 
My schedule allows for a little more flexibility than his. I work in community management which means that I don’t necessarily work a 9-5 job. It means that I sometimes work a 9-11 job. 11pm that is. Part of my job entails traveling to various cities across the greater Bay Area to attend Board meetings at my properties. I love what I do. I don’t love coming home to a dark house.
 
Are you ready for this? Let’s go.
 
5:50am - Nick's alarm goes off and he's up and in the shower {he literally flies out of bed. I don't know how he does it}. He lets the puppy out of the crate and takes both dogs out to potty. I wake up to two wet noses in my face and a kiss from the husband as he walks out the door.
 
7:00am - I'm still lounging in bed, maybe still sleeping & definitely snuggling with my two fluffy boys. I pull myself out of bed, turn on the news and jump in the shower while the dogs eat breakfast.
 
8:30am - I pour my coffee, choke down a vitamin and I'm out the door. My commute is about 40 minutes in the morning and most times I'll call my parents or friends to catch up. Other days I'll listen to an audio book {I'm a huge nerd. I love listening to books}.
 
9:15am - I make it to the office and commence the work day. Emails, phone calls from homeowners, emails, coordinating various vendors and contractors on projects at my properties, & EMAILS. Usually around this time I get a sweet text from my husband that makes me smile like a goon and want to squeeze him.
 
12:30pm – When we brought the puppy home we agreed that I would be going home for lunch to let him out to potty and play outside of his pen. We're trying to wean him from these midday breaks, so as of now I'm only going home every other day. If I don’t go home sometimes I'll work through lunch and eat at my desk, or go out with some of the ladies in my office. Sometimes I skip lunch all together. It's a bad habit.
 
5:00pm - I'm out of the office as quickly as possible. I head to my Bar Method class or work out at the gym in my office building. The evening commute around here is no joke. {Neither is the Bar Method. Holy ouch.}
 
7:00 pm – One of us will cook dinner and we’ll sit down at the bar in the kitchen to have a glass of wine and talk about our day. That usually involves filling Nick in on some kind of office nonsense and hearing funny stories about his crews. While we eat we'll watch an A’s game or one of our favorite shows. {We’re loving the Americans, Nashville, & Grimm right now, and impatiently waiting for Son’s of Anarchy to return.} I’ll usually throw in a load of laundry or re-run a load in the dryer. I love the sound of clothes tumbling in the dryer.
 
9:00 pm – Snuggle time. I love this time of night with all 3 of my boys. Since Nick has to wake up so early he’s usually out long before I fall asleep. Laying in bed next to my sleeping husband and two snoring dogs, I try to take time to give thanks for this life of ours.
 
We’re not too exciting, and our schedule can become monotonous. But we are blessed.
 
Saturdays? Saturdays are for sleeping in and French press coffee.

  1. Your day looks almost identical to mine. My favorite time is bed time when I get to snuggle with my husband and puppy too. =)
