A Typical Work Day ~ Part 1

So, I got this idea from The Wife O Riley and her hubby Matt. I thought what a fun idea this would be. Since I work part time, I would share a typical work day and then on my day off, share that as well. So, since I went to work today, that is what I will share with you today.

The day started out this morning at 7:12am cause I just couldn't managed to drag my butt out of bed today. I normally get up at 7:03am but I guess my body said "wait for the next buzz".

I did my regular morning stuff such as taking a shower, got the little one ready for school, made breakfast and all this while trying to get myself ready for work. I ended up out the door later than anticipated, worried I would be late for work cause what else is new with me.

I forgot to take a picture as soon as I got into my car. I remembered just as I was at the light coming out of my neighborhood. Yes, it's was 8:27am. I was to be at work at 9am. My drive usually takes me, depending on traffic, minimun 40 min. Good thing I like to drive the new 70mph (80mph!) Maybe, just maybe, I'll be on time today!

Fortunately for me, traffic was on my side today! Wheee....I love when it's like this! Here in California, this is so not the norm. You'll see what I mean later.

Alright, 25 minutes later I exit the freeway to make my way to my job. You can see the cluster of buildings that I work at in the middle left of the picture out in the distance.
Yep, there's the cluster of building much closer now.
Finally I make it to the parking garage to hide out for the majority of the day.

Oh, and I have to report, I was 1 minute early!!

And this would be my desk. The place I sat for the next 7 1/2 hours doing tax and accounting stuff.
Finally, I got off work. A tad bit later than usual. Normally I get out of there at 4:30 but not today.

Driving to go pick up the little one, I sit in traffic. Now THIS is the norm. And because I have to learn the tricks of the trade, I'm in the turning lane to bypass all this traffic just to hop back on, ahead by 5 minutes!

Here I make my stop to pick up my cutie pie, where I spend the next hour or so.

Here we are for a quick photo op before I head home.
Finally we make it home. It's a bit dark but that's how it was outside and that was the best I could do as I was pulling up. I forgot to take a picture of the time I got home but it was about 6:35pm.

So, there you have it....My Typical Work Day! Now I'm just relaxing, waiting for my hubby to get home while the little one is in bed. Oh, he's home! I hear the garage door open. I'll go for now.

Stay tuned for "A Typical Day Off ~ Part 2".

Thanks for the shout out! Whenever I am even one minute late getting out of the house, I am 10 minutes late for work. If I leave on time I'm 10 minutes early. I just don't get it. Looking forward to see what you do on the weekend.

I've been at work for 30 minutes by then :-)
That's very cool seeing what your work day is like. You have a busy day!

I may try doing this too!

You did good to say you woke up late.

I LOVED the pictures of the clocks! And that fact that you usually wake up at 7:03. That is awesome! We always set our alarms for ?:01.
