A Wednesday in the Life of That Person Over There (Just Kidding – it’s Me!)

—- Haha whoops I meant to schedule this post but accidentally clicked publish… ah well, hopefully y’all don’t mind two posts in one day! πŸ™‚ —-

Hey everyone!

Hehe how’s that for a “day in the life” title? I couldn’t find any synonyms for normal that started with “w” so I just went with that up there rather than alliteration.

But anyway! Today you’ll be able to see what the exhilarating life of me looks like. At least on this particular Wednesday, which was two Wednesdays ago (the 29th). Shall we begin?

To start with, I wake up. A good way to start the day, to be sure. Sorry, but I have no pictures of my out of control hair. You’ll have to manage without.

As I was saying, I wake up and usually do that around 7:30. Then I either go back to sleep or get dressed and start on some odds and ends, such as packaging up an Etsy order or working on a letter. I forget what I did this day.

At 8:00ish breakfast will be ready and we all go downstairs and eat breakfast, have devotions, and go outside for our daily P.E. which consists of running or walking a mile. There are a couple routes to take, and today I chose the Cedar-House-and-back mile.

After I’m completely awake and freezing, it’s time to start school. I start with reading. Currently, but only for the next week or so, I’m doing British Literature. I’m actually working on graduating early so I’m taking my reading one subject at a time (first British Literature and then Government and Economics) and quadrupling up on it. So since I’m doing one subject at a time rather than two, I’m basically just doubling up on my overall schoolwork.

my book, quote journal, study guide, phone with audiobook, and speaker.

It’s quite handy because a lot of my literature is in the public domain which means you can listen to it for free on librivox.org. So I get that started and then I can do other things while I’m listening! Mostly that’s just putting together Etsy kits (or in this case wrapping a kit someone had ordered and requested gift wrapping for), making knotted friendship bracelets (oh yeah, if you want to buy some and support The Smile Project, check out my page about it HERE), or doing envelope art.

4 (1280x853)

I use Sonlight’s curriculum in part for my literature, and they already have it divided into days. So when I’ve finished listening to two days worth of my book (this day I was reading A Tale of Two Cities which was pretty good!) I’ll head to the computer and type up a narration. Narrations are just writing back what I remember from what I read. They’re usually between 200-500 words. I’ll also usuallyΒ work on my essay for the week after I write my narration. I may or may not have forgotten on this particular Wednesday.

note the rather inky fingers, thanks to envelope art πŸ™‚

Then I do the horribleness that is geometry. Well, really, it’s not that awful for math. Mostly because I’m kind of okay at it, which is not a normal occurrence when it comes to math and me. I don’t particularly enjoy it, but it’s not hard so that’s nice. But this Wednesday morning I didn’t do it because the program wasn’t cooperating.

So since I got done with my morning stuff a little earlier than usual I posted BIBPC, which I had mostly prepared the night before, and then I got two Etsy orders ready to be shipped out. By then it was lunch so I ate whatever leftovers I could find. After everyone had eaten lunch Carmen and I cleaned up the dishes.

It was a little after 1:00 now so I got the mail and read the letter I got (YAY LETTERS) and then I had to do chemistry, as I had an exam the next day and studying is usually necessary for those sorts of things. SIGH.

8 (1280x853)9 (1280x853)

But I got through it, with a few distractions from Tom.

10 (853x1280)

Then I tried math again but it still wouldn’t load (eventually I ended up just skipping that lesson) which was heartbreaking, of course. How sad to not be able to do math. I was crushed.

11 (1280x853)

Despite my loss I mustered on. Next up was laundry. Allison and I take turns doing either laundry or supper each week, and this was my week for laundry. I listened to more of A Tale of Two Cities while folding the laundry. Huzzah for multi-tasking!

12 (1280x853)

Then I had to make pizza crust, because we were having movie night that night. (Typically we have it on Saturday but Wednesday was one of the few available evenings that week so we switched.) So I also made supper that day, because whoever does laundry also makes pizza for movie night.

13 (1280x853)
motion with poor lighting is not a good combination for my camera, sorry!

While the dough was rising I worked on some blogging and Etsy stuff online, and then helped put away groceries. Lots of them.

14 (853x1280)

By the time they were all away the dough had risen enough, so I rolled out the crusts and put all the toppings on the pizza and put them in the oven!

15 (1280x853)

We watched Aladdin (the live action one) that night and I don’t think I did much after the movie. Whatever it was, I’ve forgotten about it and didn’t take any pictures.

16 (1280x853)

So that brings and end to my Wednesday! It wasn’t terribly eventful, but I guess that kind of defines most “normal” days. Hopefully it was somewhat interesting to read about! πŸ™‚

what three things take up most of your “normal” days?

did you check out the bracelet page? πŸ˜€

  1. Very fun post!! I loved the pictures you included as well. I usually get up at six, read until seven, go down, eat breakfast, start school, take a break and eat lunch, finish school, and then help with my siblings. Did you like the live-action Aladdin?? I really want to watch it sometime; I’ve been listening to β€œSpeechless” forever! πŸ™‚


  2. This was SO fun!!! Do I see Sonlight?! I used to do that. AND TEACHING TEXTBOOKS! I do that, and it’s by far my favorite math program over all the ones I’ve done. πŸ™‚
    Awesome post, Megan! πŸ˜€ ❀

  3. I loved reading this!! And I’m glad I’m not the only one who sometimes just goes back to sleep once I wake up, lol. I always try to wake up around 6 or 7am, but I always ‘close my eyes’ for just a few seconds and the next thing I know it’s 8:30. XD


  4. β€œAfter I’m completely awake and freezing, it’s time to start school.”
    why is this so relatable XD love this post megan! and just ahdkskdn all the little details are just beautiful. πŸ’›


  5. Yay!! Your good ole header is back!! πŸ˜€ Your graphic design skills have definitely improved! πŸ˜› It seems like you have a very busy day! I have never seen the live action Aladdin, was it good? πŸ™‚ Awww!!! Tom is so cute!! ❀ Oh! I shall definitely see if I can dig up a few dollars and buy a bracelet! πŸ™‚ What a wonderful idea! πŸ˜€ Hmm… School, Pen pal-ing, and listening to music are the things that take up my day! πŸ˜€ Awesome post! πŸ™‚

  6. I loved having a little peek into your day! πŸ™‚ Audio books are soooooo handy! I should use them more, hehe. I’ve finally found another person who uses Teaching Textbooks! *dances* xD Yummm, pizza! πŸ˜‹ We usually have our movie nights on Friday, but this winter we had to switch it to Saturday because of practice for our musical that goes pretty late on Fri, lol.
    Ahhh, Aladdin! How did you like it? It’s probably my favorite of all the Disney remakes. πŸ˜€


  7. This was so fun to read! I do Teaching Textbooks math too, but I’m waaayyyy behind, so I’m currently in Pre-Algebra but I’m going to do Algebra 1 over the late spring/summer, and Geometry after that. I used to dislike math, but now that I am motivated to learn and do it (because I want to go to college), I actually enjoy it! πŸ™‚ AND we do Sonlight! We don’t really follow the schedule (we have our own), but we buy the books. Box-day is so much fun. XD
    We usually watch a movie every Sunday afternoon. I love how you guys have a movie/homemade pizza night! That is a really great idea.
    I love your cat’s black nose. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a cat with a nose that color. πŸ˜€


  8. I also can relate to going back to sleep in morning, instead of just getting up. I have my alarm set to 7:35, but I almost never get up at that time. Mainly because I stay up late at night reading. XD


  9. Neat post! It’s quite interesting to me to see other people’s daily lives. I like that you have P.E scheduled. Plus, the walk looks rather nice! Also, thanks for that tip on public domain books. I shall have to listen to some classics on there sometime. πŸ˜€


  10. I’m doing British Literature too and just happen to be reading A Tale of Two Cities right now!! 0.0 I love the way we homeschoolers can manage our own days…though things like chemistry and math um make it hard.

  11. Do you like Teaching Textbooks for geometry? My mom is debating whether to do that for me this year or to do Abeka video school.


      1. Yeah definitely! Sometimes to a fault and the explaining can drag on. XD they also have an option to hear an explanation of each problem which is really helpful if you have no idea how you got it wrong. And it has automatic grading!

  12. This was fun to read, Megan!! That’s awesome you’re trying to graduate early, too. πŸ˜€ I enjoy using libervox when I have to read a book I’m not particularly interested in. Don’t we all not like math? πŸ˜„ Three things that usually take up most of my “normal” days is online classes, school work, and chores. I’m usually on the computer all day due to being a part of an online school! I checked out the bracelet page and it is amazing!!!

  13. I always love these sort of posts! Your day seemed very nice.
    The three things that typically take up my day would be sleeping, school, and then blogging, reading, or some sort of activity that I enjoy.
