Day in the Life: 8am to 8pm

Yesterday morning I woke up to the sun shining and birds chirping Cecil yelling. He (normally) gets Greenies dental treats in the morning because you gotta brush your teeth every a.m. but I actually ran out of Greenies, oops.

While I poured myself a coffee, Cecil circled around waiting for treats that would never come.

He was incredibly indignant and let me know he was in SHOCK that there were no dental treats. How was he supposed to start his morning?

Seriously, look at his face, he’s so mad at me.

I apologized and then shamefully went upstairs to work knowing I was a bad cat mom.

Work was productive, but I feel like this week is totally dragging on. Every day I keep thinking it’s gotta be Friday … thankfully today IS Friday. I think this week has felt extra long because I’ve been extra tired.

Adam worked from home yesterday too so we went to Chipotle together for lunch. I always get a chicken burrito bowl with no rice, black beans, chicken and lots of mild salsa with guac on the side.

After lunch we did what any good (and guilty) cat parents would do, we went to Petsmart to get Cecil the treats he missed out on in the morning.

I was planning to buy one tub of dental treats and two bags of dried chicken treats (his fave) but the cashier rang up five bags of chicken treats by accident, so instead of having her take the extras off I just bought five bags. He appreciated the gesture.

So earlier in the day I had tried cold brew coffee for the first time and I kind of hated it. I really couldn’t even drink the whole cup. To make up for it we stopped at Starbucks and I got an Americano.

I actually need to buy a new coffee pot for home. I’m pretty sure my trusty Mr. Coffee is on his last legs. He’s been steaming up a lot and the coffee has tasted like shit… like really burnt. Is this interesting? Sorry for boring you with coffee pot chat! πŸ˜€

After lunch Adam and I got back to work, and then when 5pm hit we headed out to the park for a walk.

I’ll be honest, after I squatted 200lbs over the weekend my legs were SUPER sore for three days. They were feeling back to normal yesterday so I thought a walk would feel good. I don’t know why but my butt started feeling sore by the end of it lol! Honestly I can only hope this means the booty is growing into a nice bubble butt.

After our walk it was time to get in a workout. Adam was squatting last night and I wasn’t really into that so I just did his warmup with him. That included 75 squat ball throws to each other.

I’m not sure if that’s the proper name, but it’s where we stand about three or four feet apart and throw a 10lb medicine ball to each other, and each time we catch the ball we go down into a squat. It’s actually pretty fun!

We started out with 25 and then Adam said “okay another set of 25” and I said “why not 50?” If you can’t motivate each other in a relationship what can you do? πŸ™‚

After the workout I sat down to blog and watch the Ruth Bader Ginsberg livestream… so here we are :).


Who are you rooting for in the Superbowl on Sunday?
Do you like to workout with your partner or a friend?
Do you like Cold Brew?Β

    Is the best part about working from home not having to get up at the ass crack of dawn? I literally said “aw” out loud at the pic of Cecil eating his treat. πŸ™‚ I’m not a cold brew fan either. I just like normal iced coffee. HEY TODAY IS ACTUALLY FRIDAY πŸ™‚ We are rooting for the Eagles, not because we are from PA but because we don’t like the Patriots. Paul is having his friends over for a Super Bowl party and I will be in Gettysburg for rehearsal from 4-8! I was actually surprised they scheduled rehearsal during the super bowl but I don’t mind because I don’t watch.

      Hahhaaha yes those 5am alarms can go to hell. I am not an early riser and even though I sort of got used to it, I never exactly enjoyed it.

      I hope you have fun at rehearsal today! We’ll be rooting for the Patriots because Adam likes Tom Brady. It sucks that they have dominated our division for the last decade, but maybe someday the Bills or Dolphins will be able to break through… probably after Brady and Belichik retire lol!

    Happy Friday! Finally! This week has been long for me too. I think it’s because I had already done a week’s worth of work by Wednesday but had to keep truckin’ another couple days!

    We are rooting for the Eagles, but the Patriots are going to win, I just know it. I don’t want them to but I can feel it in my gut. Sigh. Here’s hoping I’m wrong! The Eagles had such a great season and they really deserve it though.

    Geno also loves those Feline Greenies treats! Which is funny because I assumed he’d only ever like super flavorful ones. I don’t know how much they help though because his breath is RANCID.

      Hahahaha the older Cecil’s gotten the worse his breath has gotten. I asked the vet if he needs to have a deep cleaning but he said Cecil’s teeth are in good shape so there’s no need to put him under to do dental work. I guess that’s good, but ya, I am happy to give him lots of greenies in an attempt to help his bad breath!

    Please don’t judge cold brew by that brand you tried! I hated that, actually threw it away when I bought it. Buy some from a coffee shop before you make any decisions. Or make it yourself, it’s easy! I’ve always got a mason jar of cold brew in my fridge.

    I love that you and Adam work out together. I wish I had that, but my husband and I DO go hiking together, so I’ll take what I can get.

    Oh, and I live in Massachusetts, about 7 miles away from Gilette Stadium… Go Pats πŸ™‚

      Go Pats πŸ™‚ Adam and I will be rooting for them today too. Adam loves Brady and I like that they at least represent our division!

      I’ll have to give cold brew a try again. Are there any specific brands you recommend?

    Coffee pods conversations aren’t boring conversations for me lol. I totally feel you with the cold brew coffee. I don’t like it either.

    I LOVE when me and my husband take our dog for a walk. But I mostly workout by myself all the time.

    Oh my God Cecil is so spoiled by Mommy<3

      Awww that’s so sweet that you walk the dog together. That’s my dream, haha. I like when we walk Cecil together in his stroller but I wish we had a dog to take on walks! πŸ™‚

    Its cool, its a lovely feel while working from home. You are just enjoying it and I am feeling like wow I should do the same like you. I love dogs and I am having two dogs in my home and I really enjoy their company while being at home.
