yesterday, October 31st:
5:45a | woke up – hardly slept at all because of the raging thunderstorms going through here. Ozzie gets SO anxious during storms that he doesn’t sleep and most of the time he’s up on the bed near me shaking, so I don’t sleep either. Thank goodness I didn’t sign up for 6:00 am pure barre, first, I wouldn’t have made it, second, I found out later in the day the studio was flooded anyway…
6:00a | dumped out the rest of the pumpkin ice cream from Trader Joe’s because that may be some of the reason I didn’t sleep well also 😉 too much pumpkin ice cream before bed…take ozzie out for a walk
6:30a | fix coffee, do random stuff around the house, sit down to start working around 6:45
6:45a | check email, respond to email, look at What’s New at Shopbop while I drink my coffee. This is a daily ritual, I’m that addicted! Got a wild hair that I want/need a basic long black maxi dress – one that’s fitted for layering, not flowy, or cinched in at the waist – so search for a little while for one of those. Do some random housekeeping stuff for the blogs, respond to comments, etc.
8:00a | work on my article for IFB
10:00a | drink my breakfast (David Kirsch protein shake), take a shower, get dressed, vacuum, put the sheets back on the bed that I washed earlier in the morning…
1:00p | eat a pear, put my makeup on, try and do something with my hair, but can’t, so I just pull it back like I’m doing pretty much every day lately…take my outfit picture. Go through a dozen pictures to find the best one, crop it, fix the lighting a little, then get it ready for this post.
2:00p | decide I should go and run the errands that I need to, but first I take ozzie out again.
3:30p | back from errands – didn’t do everything I wanted to because I got VERY hungry all of the sudden (which happens to me a lot, as you probably could have predicted based on what I ate so far!) and I have enough to eat for lunch at home. Too hungry to fix anything “healthy” so I eat chips & salsa. And then stuff my face with sea salt & turbinado dark chocolate almonds from Trader Joe’s. Go into a BAD FOOD coma. Spend some time reading blogs, working on social media: pinterest, facebook, twitter, etc. Browse eBay, add some new things to my collections.
4:30p | work on finishing up this post and write a post for next week for the Simon Malls style setter blog (I’m the blogger for the Domain mall here in Austin).
6:30p | start to think about making dinner…squash and kale maybe? to make up for “lunch”? probably done “working” for the day…
Exciting, huh? So that’s it, what I do most days, some days, time spent running errands is longer, depending on whether I need to “shop” or not (I try to go out and try stuff on, feel things, look at things as many days as I can, so I can pass on my opinions), or if I have a meeting/lunch/appt.
I only wrote this so you can see my dilemma with regard to my wardrobe, and shopping for my closet; my life is primarily spent at my desk. At least I have a good view 🙂
Have a good weekend everyone. Tomorrow I turn 41. And next year, Grechen’s Closet turns 10. Can’t wait for what’s next!!!
