My oh so glamorous life


(light of my life)


I lead such a glamorous life. I hesitate to even tell you about it, because you will immediately compare it to your own drab little life and go green with envy and pray oh please oh please that you could have my life instead of yours and probably hate me forever.

But it's a chance I have to take. Because, I'm sorry, I have nothing else to blog about at the moment.

So here is just one day in my oh so glamorous life:

5:45 a.m. - I wake up even though technically it is the middle of the night for normal people.

5:46 a.m. - I turn on my laptop and a little screen pops up from a program I installed 6 months ago. It wants me to register the program online, which I don't want to do. So I check the box that says "Do not remind me again" knowing full well that it will remind me again tomorrow and the next day and the next day, until I finally throw my computer through the window.

5:47 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. - I drink massive amounts of coffee, write financial marketing projects, and do an amazing amount of laundry considering it's just my husband and me and neither one of us leaves the house all that much.

Today was a bit of an exception. We were babysitting our little 2-year-old grandbaby, and she wasn't feeling well. So she threw up on me several times, giving both of us quite an interesting scent, then curled up on my lap.

I felt her warm little body relax as she fell fast asleep.

I stroked her cheek while checking her forehead to make sure she wasn't running a fever.

I covered her with a blanket so she wouldn't catch a chill.

And I tried not to breathe too deeply.

It wasn't glamorous. It wasn't terribly productive. But all in all, it was a good day.

She's so cute. I hope she gets well soon and that you don't catch whatever it is she has.

It did sound like a great day!

She is so sweet and yes it was a productive day. Even with sickness, I can't imagine a better way to spend time but holding a precious little one.

I don't know about glamorous, but certainly worth while.

God Bless

Maybe you should programme your grandchild with a little pop-up saying, 'Do you want me to vomit on you again? Yes/No.' I enjoyed your post - when I get up at 6 tomorrow, it will comfort me to know that some people get up earlier.
