I am sure (or maybe I should say deluded enough to think) that you guys are curious about my average day. Well, for those of you are interested in knowing, here goes…
6:00 a.m. – Wake up to the alarm clock, hit to snooze button
6:09 a.m. – Hit the snooze button for the second time
6:18 a.m. – Hit the snooze button one more time
6:23 a.m. – Turn off that darn alarm clock and head into the kitchen to make my daughter breakfast. This is easy since she usually eats either Cheerios or Kashi whole grain waffles with juice.
6:30 a.m. – Eat my own breakfast- surprisingly similar to my daughter’s choice of food.
6:45-7:15 a.m. – Getting my daughter ready. Packing her bag, dressing her (usually picking out clothes my wife claims, “Don’t go together”), brushing her excessively knotty hair, and packing her lunch.
7:30-8:15 a.m. – Settle in with the house to myself and start my bible study. I usually use my super huge margin bible with plenty of room for notes. I prefer to take notes in the book I am using- as I tend to lose notebooks.
8:15-8:35 a.m. – Catch up with blogs and blog posting.
8:40-9:30 a.m. – Spend time on-line catching up on research, op-eds, etc.
9:35-11:00 a.m. – Reading or writing related to my specialty. This week I am actually reading a book outside my specialty entitled, The Death of the Truth: What’s Wrong with Multiculturalism…, Dennis McCallum, ed.
11:00-11:45 a.m. – Walk the dog(s)
11:45 a.m. – Lunch
12:15-2:00 p.m. – More reading
2:00-2:45 p.m. – Resistance training. I find this is my favorite time of day to workout.
2:45-4:30 p.m. – Take care of any general business (i.e. paying bills, sending letters, planning workouts and nutrition, etc).
4:35 p.m. – My wife and daughter come home.
4:35-6:15 p.m. – Playing with my daughter, and lately watching lots of Monsters Inc.
6:15-6:45 p.m. – Family dinner time at the table
7:00-8:30 p.m. – Begin my daughter’s nightly pre-bedtime ritual. Which occurs in this order,
- Watch an episode of Sponge Bob,
- Watching Garfield (cartoon) clips on Youtube,
- Get her dressed for bed,
- Watch one more episode of Sponge Bob,
- Find her stuffed bear and her stuffed dog,
- Feed her fish,
- Turn off the light (but be sure to leave the hall light on).
8:35-10:00 p.m. – Spend quality time with my wife.
11:00-11:30 pm. – Watch Futurama
11:35 p.m. – Go to sleep
