I just thought I’d write about a typical day in my life. This type of day happens on Monday, Tuesday, & Friday’s each week. (Except when I sub at the boys school, which I started on Monday & will work again on Friday. 😉)
I wake up at 5:40 every weekday and make my husband’s and boys’ lunches. I start a load of laundry and set out the boys’ breakfast. (I cheat and have muffins/fruit, something easy available.) I wake the boys about 6:10 then, I go get myself ready while they try to wake up.
After I’m mostly ready, I go back and wake my 14 year old (again) at 6:40. The boys brush their teeth, put on their shoes, grab their bags, while I grab my creamer. (I mean coffee with lots of creamer!) We walk out the door approximately 7:05.
I drive them to school every morning. It’s around a 30 minute drive from our home. (Thanks to mandatory consolidation. 🙄) I dropy oldest off at the High School then, head to the Elementary. I find a parking space and walk little man to the 1st grade hallway. (I was walking him to his hook by the classroom but, he’s decided he’s too cool for that now. **sniff, sniff, sigh.*)
After dropping off my little guy, I head back home through the boonies. This small town girl pulls back into the driveway and is greeted by a dog, chickens, ducks, horses, and calves mooing in the barn. Home sweet home! 😍 I come inside and mix up two bottles for the hungry calves. While the milk is breaking down in the hot water (takes 15 minutes), I switch the laundry around and eat breakfast, if I didn’t cheat and grab a wrap at sonic. (Don’t judge me. Lol) The milk replacer timer I set goes off. I then, pour the milk into the giant bottles, and head to the barn.
I feed the calves which takes about 10 minutes. (I have bottle holders.) Today, I found a huge nest of chicken eggs. I collected them in a bucket, while the calves ate. I checked their feeders and water then, head home (across the field) with the bottles.
My schedule varies after this but, I do dishes, laundry, and straighten up the tornado resembling house. I also feed all of the farm animals and decide on what I’ll fix for supper. (Thaw out meat etc.)
My day flies by every single day! Before I know it, it’s time to go to the bus stop. The boys ride the bus home and I pick them up at a little country store, one mile from our house. The boys hop into the truck and argue and fuss over who gets to talk first. (I’m sure you’d kids don’t do this.) We go home and work on homework, and they play outside. I start supper between 5:15-5:30 depending on what I’m making. Hubby gets home about 6 and we eat.
This is just a few things in my life as a mostly stay at home farm girl. I hope you weren’t bored too much! Drop me a comment about your favorite part of your day.
Have a very blessed one!
