{ Spend the day with me }

4:32 AM

Welcome to a day in my life!!!

I thought I would do something a tad bit different today, have you come along with me on my day. I'll be posting photos and quick updates every hour on the hour, so be sure to check back often :)

Not sure how this is going to turn out, I'm hoping it will be something fun for you all, and if it is, I may do it once a week.

*******************************************************

5:00 AM -  Good morning everyone, hope you've had a blessed, restful night.  I've been up since 2:30 am with Mr Marley.  I don't think anything gets you up and out of bed as fast as hearing your dog about to throw up.  He vomited a couple times, so I've been in the living room with him to allow my husband some rest before he has to head to work.

I'm completely exhausted and I'm hoping that I'll be able to get a quick nap in after this first post.

I've had a cup of coffee, I've been watching a few vlogs just to kill time while I wait for the little one to feel better and settle down, which he seems to be finally doing.

6:00 AM - Still pitch black outside, but a beautiful morning and the moon behind the tree branches makes for a pretty sight.

11:15 AM - Hubby is home for lunch, and he brought us Taco Bell which we haven't had in a while, so enjoying a quick bite with him before he has to rush back to work

11:30 AM - Hubby went to lay down for 30 mins for a quick power nap, he is exhausted and has some very important things going on at work, so needs a little extra pick me up.

I'm going to work on my Mandala Madness blanket until I have to get him up at noon.

8:00 PM - Day is winding down, I'm working on my crochet and watching Everybody Loves Raymond on TV.

January 24, 2017

8:45 PM - And with that, my friends, I am heading to bed to hopefully get an early night and some much needed sleep.

I'm so glad that I was able to do this post for you all, even on a day like today where I wasn't functioning at my best.  I quite enjoyed having to take the photos and hold myself responsible to post on the hour and throughout the day, I think it helped me stay on track and not just give in to the exhaustion.

Please do let me know if you enjoyed this post and if it's something you would enjoy seeing more often.  If so, I may do it once a week :)

Again, thank you to all those who followed along with me today, left such sweet comments and were truly interested in my day, I appreciate you all so very much.

Now I better get myself into bed before I fall asleep at the computer. 

Blessings,
Sandra

  2. Poor doggie! My beagle used to throw up frequently. (Of course she would eat the most awful things/critters she would find outside!) She just always had a delicate stomach. After she was 3 years old she didn't do it as much. But I know it is not fun to clean up! Andrea

  7. Love it. I had that same cup and a red one. I donated a few months ago some of my mugs and cups and limited myself to my favorite. I loved it but had some more sentimental ones. Hope you have a good minus being tired.
