A Week in the Life

I'm stealing this blog idea "challenge" from my friend Daggers. The idea is you document a week in your life with pictures and words. Fun! So without further ado, here is my week, February 27th - March 4th.

Monday, February 27th, 2012

On my usual Monday's, I get to my job at the Stratton Building on Eastern Kentucky University's campus at 8am.

My office!

Other side of the office
I work for the Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium as a research analyst. We are an organization that provides  rural first responders with free disaster preparedness training all over the U.S. Today at work, I was super busy running the numbers for our 2011 Annual Performance reports. Fun stuff. :P It was probably a boring day to begin this blog challenge, because while I normally get off work at 4:30, I had to stay late until 6:30 today in order to get some things done with these reports.

When I left work, I ran over to the other side of campus to pick up Jason who was just getting off. When we got home, we spent a few minutes playing with this little man:

Then, Jason went over next door where he is currently painting the neighbor's laundry room for them while I got started on making dinner. I tried out a new recipe tonight called "Unstuffed Peppers Casserole". Imagine making the stuffing for stuffed peppers, but then chopping the peppers and mixing them into it and pouring it into a baking dish. Cover it with bread crumbs and bake. D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S. This is going to go into the regular rotation.

Nom Nom Nom
After dinner, it was time to get in our pajamas and veg out on the couch after a looooong day at work for both of us. We watched the most recent episode of:

We're crazy about this show. I want to go on it so badly. I'm telling you, Jason and I can win this thing. With my travel experience and his competitive streak, we'd be a force to reckon with. Couples on this show always fight like dogs and sabatoge themselves with their poor communication. Jason and I literally NEVER fight and never take our stress out on each other, so I'm sure we could avoid that common pitfall. Now I've gone off on a tangent, but the point was, I REALLY want to audition for the Amazing Race. :P

Around 10:00 PM, we both went upstairs to get ready for bed:

I <3 my bedroom
Jason was passed out by 10:10 pm (I swear I've never seen anyone fall asleep so quickly in my life as he does). I got in bed with my booklight, a cup of tea and:

Currently obsessed with these books. I want to be a Dragon Rider, dammit.
....where I read until 11:30 pm and then it was off to dreamland, bringing an end to my thrilling Monday.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post and do your own challenge if you're so inclined.
