Show Us Your Life - A Day in the Life

Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner

What is our typical day like?  Well, it would make it easier if we had "typical" days around here, but I will give it a shot!

We usually wake up around 6:00am and the three of us get ready for the day while watching a combination of the morning news, the Today Show, and cartoons depending on who is in the charge that particular day (or who needs the most help waking up!).

Next, I head to school, and Chad and Finley finish getting ready, and then they are off to school.

Then, we all play at school all day!

I finish teaching at 2:45, and then I coach until about 4:00.  I head to pick up Finley at school, and we usually run an errand or two on our way home.  When we get home, we usually play and read books for a while until Chad gets home.  Then we decide what to do for dinner (this part has been interesting lately due to the lack of an oven or sink in our kitchen that is almost finished being remodeled).

After dinner, we each kind of do our own thing (for Chad = watch history or discovery channel, for me = house or crafty project, for Finley = help mommy, i.e. cut paper into teeny tiny pieces all over the house).

Then, Finley takes a bath and picks out her goodnight stories.  We read a few stories, and Finley drifts off to sleep.  Chad and I have a little time to ourselves before we go to sleep and start all over the next day!

Oh my goodness! Have you read the latest entry in Melissa's blog:

Melissa's father-in-law died yesterday but Melissa couldn't be bothered to travel with her husband Chad to be with his father, even though they knew he was going to die this week.

Worse than not being bothered to see her father-in-law, Melissa has been blogging about going shopping, going to lunch with her girlfriends, going to the gym, etc. rather than being at her husband's side.

Melissa says she can't travel a few hours by car to visit her dying father in law because she is pregnant. What the heck? How can you NOT travel to see your dying father-in-law but you can go to the gym?? go shopping?? and go out to lunch??

Now Melissa says she can't even be bothered to go to the poor man's funeral. Too busy going to the gym, I guess?

How many of you girls out there would not go and visit your father-in-law if you knew he only had a few days left on this earth? How many of you would leave your husband alone to watch his father die? How many of you would rather go shopping and go to the gym than go to your father-in-law's funeral?

I am just astonished at how cold, un-Godly and cruel this woman is. Incredible.
