Luckily, Hubby hasn’t asked me that while I’ve been home on sick leave . . . but just in case you’re wondering . . .
6:30 a.m. – get up with Hubby when his alarm goes off. Let the dogs out to potty.
6:40 a.m. – fix breakfast for Blacky and Luci. Make sure Blacky takes his arthritis meds before Luci pushes him out of the way to check out his food bowl.
6:55 a.m. – give Hubby a hug and a kiss before he leaves for work. Yes, I’ve done that every day for the last 23 years.
7:00 a.m. – go back to bed! Thankfully Luci and Blacky understand that Mommy needs a morning nap.
9:00 a.m. – eat breakfast, take a shower, get dressed and all that stuff
10:00 a.m. – watch Dr. Phil . . . and let Luci in and out about every 10 minutes.
11:00 a.m. – get on the computer, read local newspaper, read comics, check out a few blogs, generally just surf the net for a while.
12:00 p.m. – still surfing and watching the local news at the same time. Let Blacky out to go potty and give them both “lunch cookies.” No, Blacky doesn’t run in and out as often as Luci does. He’ll go out, do his business, maybe sun himself on the deck for a little while and then come back inside.
12:30 p.m. – fix my lunch and watch Young and Restless. No, Luci doesn’t get to run in and out during my soap. She’ll sit in the living room and stare at the TV like she’s really watching the story. Blacky is usually napping on his doggie bed.
1:30 p.m. – time for everybody to go outside and enjoy the sun and fresh air on the deck. If I have any errands to run, this is when I do them or if I have any housework that needs to be done. But normally I’m outside playing fetch with Luci (I throw, she chases), reading my book, or working on my cross stitch.
2:30 p.m. – Blacky and Luci are ready for their afternoon naps about now – time to go back inside and see what kind of trash TV we can find to watch. Usually a judge show (People’s Court, Judge Joe Brown, Divorce Court) or something else equally entertaining.
4:00 p.m. – time for the Ellen DeGeneres show. Yes, I’m hooked. Oh, and I have to start supper.
6:15 p.m. – Hubby’s home from work. Time for supper.
7:00 p.m. – supper over, do the dishes. Let Luci in and out a few dozen more times.
8:00 p.m. – play fetch with Luci and Blacky some more.
8:30 p.m. – time to come in for the day. Watch TV with Hubby.
10:00 p.m. – watch the local news. Get ready for bed.
I’ve only got a few more days of this wonderfully relaxed schedule. I’m sure going to miss it when I go back to work next week.
