a day in our life

up at 7:30 (woken up by a little boy who wore winter gloves in bed all night)
shower and mama/max time before breakfast.
max's hamster is named spongey.
he puts up with a lot from us...from my high-pitched squeels at him to max's constant forcing him under his shirt. this morning we put him on a globe and sang "on top of the world" and he didn't seem very amused.
9:30 and time for breakfast.
i made toast and egg white/red pepper/spinach/goat cheese omelets.
i ruined the first one, so i had mine scrambled.
 matt is up by 10 and ready to leave for the day.
i almost burn the house down and decide to stay out of the kitchen and go out for lunch today.

 while trying to get dressed i realize i hadn't heard matt leave.
he sneaked back into bed. 
he's sleepy like that...
by 10:30 matt has hit the's time to check emails and procrastinate before getting ready.
today i wore a lux blouse, zac posen for target dress i converted into a skirt (it fit terribly on this small chested gal) and a f21 jacket.
max gets himself dressed and insists on helping me with my make up.
then he draws me this owl picture...
(i'm offically in love with him)
and by 11 o'clock we're out the door...
to spend some time at big boy talking serious 6 year old business over chocolate milk and french fries before afternoon kindergarten.
max starts school at 12:30.
hugs and kisses and he's on his way...and i head over to a 1:00 meeting with a client.
i'm working with a local school on a 50th anniversary painting. we went through all sorts of old photos and newspaper clippings for inspiration. 
(pay no attention to that thumb...i'm not ready to talk about it. haha.
suffice it to say...i have toe thumbs. hmph!)
2:30...i have an hour to kill before max is done with school. i go to a coffee shop to mull over everything from my meeting and start sketching out ideas.
by 4:00 we're all reunited!
max got a blue ribbon in math, matt got some more work done on the tattoo on his hand, and i came home to dishes and laundry and my blog.
not too shabby, this tuesday!
