Now that we’ve been here just over a month, life has settled into a comfortable weekday routine. Hubs heads to the gym before work and I’m usually crawling out of bed around the time he gets home from the gym. My morning consists of breakfast, coffee, and catching up on the goings-on in the U.S. My mid-morning to early evening varies but usually includes some of the following each day:
- Job hunting online
- House tidying
- Kitchen cleaning
- Grocery shopping
- Errand running
- Exercise (either running or lifting weights at AIS)
- Sitting outside on the patio in the sun on pretty days
During the weekday evenings, I cook dinner. We eat. I clean the kitchen and we head to bed relatively early–the alarm goes off awfully early in our house.
It’s not a bad life. That being said, I’ve worked since I was 14 years old and am getting super antsy. While I would prefer an office job, I have spoken with the owner of the local paddlesports shop and he can offer me three to four days a week retail in the shop between now and Christmas. I’m stoked and am waiting for paperwork stuff before starting. In all, things are good. Now we just need a renter for our condo in DC…lemme know if you know of anyone.
